Guelph real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Guelph is exemplified by its slower-paced ambience. Accessing public green spaces, including South End Community Park and Preservation Park, is easy from the majority of locations within the city, since there are over 100 of them close by for residents to discover and a large number of properties for sale have a park a short walk away. The noise levels in this city are also quite low, as the streets are usually reasonably calm - although there are still several noisier sections, especially near one of the railway lines.
Travelling by car is especially convenient in Guelph. It is straightforward to park. On the other hand, this city is not very transit friendly. Thankfully, commuters can depend on the Guelph Central Station on the Kitchener Line. House owners are served by about 20 bus lines, and bus stops are usually nearby. It is challenging for pedestrians to navigate Guelph because very few daily needs can be carried out by walking.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing many dwellings in Guelph, while the rest are mainly large apartment buildings, small apartment buildings, and townhouses. This city is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Around two thirds of the population of this city own their home and the remainder are renters. Roughly one quarter of properties in this city were built between 1960 and 1980, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s.
The closest supermarket in Guelph is generally only a reasonably short walk away. Carden Street is among the best streets for groceries. A limited selection of restaurants and cafes is available as well. Concerning education, it is a rather short walk to reach primary schools from most homes for sale in Guelph. However, there are only a few high schools and thus they can be a long walk away. Besides public schools, there are private primary and secondary schools.
