Doncrest real estate guide & listings for sale

Doncrest is a very good neighbourhood to buy a house in for those who prefer a slower-paced environment. This area is very quiet, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue. Lastly, green spaces are easy to get to since there are a few of them close by for residents to relax in.

Transportation

Driving is very often the preferred method to navigate Doncrest. It is easy to access a place to park, and the majority of real estate listings are a rather short car ride from the closest highway, such as Highway 407. On the other hand, the public transit service in this part of the town is not especially frequent. Thankfully, there are around 10 bus lines crossing the neighbourhood, and most properties are very close to a bus stop. Walking is not particularly practical for home buyers in Doncrest as few daily needs can be carried out on foot. Travelling by bicycle is also occasionally difficult in Doncrest since there are a good number of hills for cyclists to brave. Nonetheless, the bicycling infrastructure is comprehensive.

Housing

Doncrest did not experience a single construction boom; the construction of new dwellings in the neighbourhood was spread throughout several decades in the twentieth and twenty-first century. In this neighbourhood, many buildings are single detached homes, while large apartment buildings and townhouses make up most of the remaining housing stock. Homeowners occupy around 80% of the properties in Doncrest and 20% are rented. This neighbourhood also has a good selection of housing size options - there is a higher proportion of four or more bedroom homes in this part of Richmond Hill.

Services

Home buyers in Doncrest will be pleased to learn that a grocery store is always only a reasonably short walk away. Likewise, Doncrest is a good place in which to go out to eat, and property owners benefit from a few cafes as well. Concerning education, in this part of Richmond Hill, parents and their children will typically be able to access primary schools on foot. However, Doncrest does not have any high schools.
