Lakeview real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Lakeview is exemplified by its relaxed environment. There are around 20 parks nearby for residents to explore, such as Cawthra Park and City Wide Open Space, and they are very well-distributed, making it easy to reach them. This neighbourhood is also reasonably good for those who need quiet surroundings, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - however some areas can be quite loud, especially close to the railway line or Queen Elizabeth Way.
Driving is an excellent means of transportation in Lakeview. It is especially convenient to park, and the majority of real estate listings are a reasonably short drive from the nearest highway, such as Queen Elizabeth Way. In contrast, the public transit network in Lakeview is sometimes poor. Nevertheless, the neighbourhood is linked by a few bus lines, and bus stops are usually nearby. Many of the homes for sale in this part of the city are located in areas that are not particularly well-suited for walking as running daily errands is occasionally difficult. However, Lakeview is appropriate for bicycling since the cycling network is fairly good.
Roughly 40% of properties in Lakeview were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while many of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960.
