Gleneagles real estate guide & listings for sale
Gleneagles offers a calm ambience and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors.

The favoured method of transportation in Gleneagles is very often driving. Most real estate listings are a short drive from the nearest highway, such as Trans-Canada Highway, and parking is quite easy. On the other hand, residents using public transit may experience limited choices in this part of the municipality by reason of the infrequent service. Nonetheless, the neighbourhood is served by a few bus lines, and it is very convenient to reach a nearby bus stop from most properties. Cycling is very hard in Gleneagles because riding a bike is rendered strenuous by the typically sloping terrain, and the cycling network is quite poor. This neighbourhood is also not very well-suited for walking because carrying out daily needs is very inconvenient on foot.
