Kawartha real estate guide & listings for sale
Kawartha is a very good neighbourhood to buy a home in for those who prefer a relaxed ambience. Most areas in this area are very quiet, as there are low levels of noise from traffic. Finally, it is easy to access green spaces in the neighbourhood, since there are a few of them close by for residents to explore and many houses for sale have a park a short walk away.
Kawartha is especially car friendly. Parking is generally easy. A majority of the homes for sale in this neighbourhood are located in places that are not very suitable for those who travel by foot as carrying out daily needs is difficult by walking.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing the majority of dwellings in Kawartha, whereas the rest are mainly small apartment buildings. About 40% of properties in this neighbourhood were built between 1960 and 1980, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1980s and the 1990s. This part of Peterborough is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Around 80% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners whereas renters occupy the remainder.
Parents and their schoolchildren will value the proximity to both primary and secondary schools, which are within walking distance from most homes for sale in Kawartha. On the other hand, there are only a few daycares and consequently they can be a rather long walk away. When it comes to eating, in all but a few cases, a vehicle is required in Kawartha to access the closest supermarket. Nevertheless, getting to the nearest pharmacy and therefore some staple foods is typically convenient. A limited variety of restaurants is available in Kawartha as well.
