Grandview real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Grandview is exemplified by its slower-paced atmosphere. Parks are especially well-situated and there are a few of them close by for residents to check out, which makes it easy to reach them. This neighbourhood is reasonably quiet overall, as the streets tend to be tranquil - however noise can be bothersome near the railway line.
Grandview allows property owners to get around using a variety of modes of transportation. The public transit system in this neighbourhood is very accessible. In particular, there are approximately 10 bus lines traversing the neighbourhood, and most homes are very close to a bus stop. Grandview is also a fairly pleasant part of Markham for pedestrians; carrying out daily needs is easy by walking. Grandview is not very suited for bicycling since the cycling infrastructure is rather poor, and cyclists encounter a significant amount of elevation changes.
In Grandview, about half of dwellings are large apartment buildings, while the remainder are mainly single detached homes. This part of the city is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and one bedroom homes. The split between renters and homeowners is about even. Around 45% of homes in this neighbourhood were constructed after the year 2000, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1960s.
It is a short walk to get to both primary and secondary schools from any location in this neighbourhood. In contrast, families may consider it challenging to get to daycares as a pedestrian. With respect to food, both general and specialty grocery stores are usually accessible within a rather short walk from anywhere in this part of Markham. Likewise, Grandview is a good place in which to go out to eat, and house buyers benefit from a few cafes as well. It is also a reasonably short distance to a reasonable selection of clothing stores.
