Lakeshore real estate guide & listings for sale
There is a wide variety of green spaces in Lakeshore. Parks are very well-distributed and there are a few of them nearby for residents to visit, which makes them easy to reach from the majority of locations in the neighbourhood. Since there are very few people out and about on the streets, this part of the city is relatively serene.
The car is very often the favoured transportation option in Lakeshore. Finding a parking spot is generally easy, and the majority of houses for sale are a rather short car ride from the nearest highway. In contrast, the public transit system in this part of the city is quite poor. It is challenging for people travelling on foot to navigate Lakeshore as many daily needs are impractical to carry out by walking. Lakeshore is also not very conducive to cycling as the terrain is not especially flat, and this neighbourhood is home to a quite bad bicycling infrastructure.
In Lakeshore, the majority of buildings are large apartment buildings, and the rest of the houses are mainly single detached homes and townhouses. About half of homes in this neighbourhood were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s. This part of Hamilton offers mainly three bedroom and two bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy about 85% of the units in the neighbourhood while the remainder are rented.
In most cases, a car is needed to do groceries. Nevertheless, getting to the nearest pharmacy and accordingly some staple foods is generally convenient. When it comes to education, this part of Hamilton does not have any high schools or primary schools. Likewise, parents and their children may consider it very hard to reach daycares as a pedestrian.
