La Salle real estate guide & listings for sale
La Salle is a good neighbourhood to buy a house in for those who prefer a slower-paced atmosphere. It is easy to access green spaces, since there are around 10 of them close by for residents to explore and most properties for sale have a park relatively close by. This area is quiet overall, as the streets tend to be quite peaceful - although there are still several noisier sections, especially near Queen Elizabeth Way, Highway 403 or the railway line.
The favoured transportation option in La Salle is very often a car. The majority of homes for sale are a short drive from the closest highway, such as Highway 407, and it is very easy to access a parking spot. On the other hand, the public transit system in La Salle is fairly poor. Thankfully, commuters can count on the Aldershot Station on the Lakeshore West Line. Homeowners have access to a few bus lines, and it is straightforward to reach a nearby bus stop from most homes. This area is not very well-suited for walking because meeting daily needs is at times difficult by walking. It is also difficult to travel by bike in this part of Burlington since the cycling infrastructure is rather limited, and there is a significant amount of hills.
About two thirds of the dwellings in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and one third are rented. In this area, many dwellings are single detached homes, while large apartment buildings and townhouses are the main alternatives in the housing stock. Around 40% of properties in this part of Burlington were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 2000s. This neighbourhood offers mainly two bedroom and three bedroom homes.
It is generally practical for property owners in La Salle to shop for their groceries on foot. A limited variety of restaurants and coffee shops is available as well. In addition, it is easy to reach a number of clothing stores on foot. In terms of education, parents and their children will welcome that no matter where their home is located in La Salle, primary schools are nearby. In contrast, there are no high schools in this part of the city.
