East Gwillimbury real estate guide & listings for sale
East Gwillimbury is reasonably quiet overall, as the streets are quite peaceful - although that is not the case around Highway 404 or one of the railway lines. Parks are sparse, which makes it very difficult to access them.
This town is especially car friendly. Accessing a parking spot is generally easy. On the other hand, East Gwillimbury is not very transit friendly. Thankfully, property owners profit from the East Gwillimbury Station with access to the Barrie Line. There are about 10 bus lines. Travelling on foot is not very practical for residents in this town as almost no common errands can be run without needing to use a vehicle. East Gwillimbury is also not very conducive to cycling because there is a considerable amount of elevation changes, and this part of the Greater Toronto metropolitan area has a fairly poor bicycling infrastructure.
Single detached homes and row houses are the main housing type in East Gwillimbury. This town is primarily composed of three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. About 90% of the population of this town own their home and 10% are renters. About one quarter of properties in this part of the Greater Toronto metropolitan area were built in the 1960s and 1970s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s.
There are only a few primary schools in East Gwillimbury and accordingly they can be a rather long walk away. Likewise, this town does not contain any high schools. Furthermore, there are only a very small number of daycares and thus they can be a very long walk away. When it comes to food, it is very rarely an option for property owners in this town to do their grocery shopping in one of approximately 10 stores on foot. There are also a few opportunities for those who value restaurants in close proximity.
