Elgin real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Elgin is exemplified by its slower-paced ambience. Green spaces are easy to access since there are approximately 10 of them close by for residents to check out. This part of the city is also reasonably quiet, as the streets are generally quite peaceful - however noise can be bothersome around the railway line, Highway 420 or Queen Elizabeth Way.
Moving around by car is very convenient in this neighbourhood. Most real estate listings are a reasonably short drive from the nearest highway, such as Highway 420, and it is straightforward to come across a parking spot. However, Elgin is not very transit friendly. Nevertheless, homeowners benefit from the Niagara Falls Station with access to the Lakeshore West Line. There are a few bus lines, and bus stops are usually nearby. Travelling on foot is not particularly feasible for property owners in this neighbourhood because most daily needs are occasionally challenging to meet without the use of a car.
In Elgin, about 55% of dwellings are single detached homes, while the rest are mainly large apartment buildings, small apartment buildings, and duplexes. This part of Niagara Falls experienced its biggest construction boom before the 1960s, so most of the available housing is from this era. This neighbourhood is primarily composed of two bedroom and three bedroom homes. There are equal parts owners and renters living in this neighbourhood.
A supermarket is ordinarily reachable within a short walk from most properties for sale in Elgin. Furthermore, there are a fair number of choices for those who care about nearby restaurants and cafes. In terms of education, both primary and secondary schools are convenient to access on foot from most houses for sale in this neighbourhood. Parents are served by public and private elementary schools. On the other hand, families may find it challenging for their kids to get to daycares on foot.
