Coniston real estate guide & listings for sale
Coniston is fairly good for those who need a quiet atmosphere, as the streets tend to be quite calm - however noise can be bothersome closer to one of the railway lines. Parks aren't well-situated, which results in them being rather difficult to reach from a lot of locations within this area. Despite that, there are a few public green spaces nearby for residents to relax in.
The preferred method of transportation in this part of the city is usually driving. Nearby highways are reasonably easy to access from any home in Coniston, and it is especially convenient to find a place to park. In contrast, commuting by transit can be very hard in Coniston as a result of the low service level. Nevertheless, homeowners are served by a few bus lines, and the nearest bus stop is usually close by. Travelling on foot is not very practical for house buyers in Coniston since running daily errands is very difficult.
The large proportion of single detached homes in the housing stock of Coniston is an important part of its character. Around 45% of properties in this community were constructed pre-1960, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s. This community is primarily composed of two bedroom and three bedroom homes. Around three quarters of the units in the community are occupied by homeowners while renters occupy the remainder.
There are only a few primary schools in Coniston and consequently they can be an extended walk away. Furthermore, this part of Greater Sudbury does not contain any high schools. Moreover, families may consider it very difficult to access daycares as a pedestrian. With respect to food, some, but not all, home buyers in Coniston will reside within walking distance of the closest supermarket.
