Clarington real estate guide & listings for sale
Clarington is reasonably good for those who enjoy quiet areas, as noise from the streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although there are still several noisier sections, especially near Highway 115, Highway 401 or one of the railway lines.
Cars are a great means of transportation in this municipality. It is very convenient to find a place to park. However, the public transit service in Clarington is quite poor. Thankfully, the municipality is linked by about 10 bus lines. Clarington is not very well-suited for walking since running common errands is very impractical.
About 30% of properties in Clarington were built following the year 2000, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1960s. The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of this part of the Greater Oshawa metropolitan area is an important part of its character. Around 90% of the units in the municipality are occupied by homeowners while the rest are rented. This municipality offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes.
There are only a very small number of high schools and primary schools in this part of the Greater Oshawa metropolitan area and therefore they can be a very long walk away. Likewise, parents may find it very difficult for their schoolchildren to reach daycares on foot. Families have the option of public and private schools at both the primary and secondary school level. With regards to eating, in all but a very small number of cases, a vehicle is needed to buy groceries in one of about 30 stores.
