Lakeview real estate guide & listings for sale
Lakeview is a good neighbourhood to buy a home in for those who prefer a calm ambience. The noise levels in this part of Oshawa are quite low, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case near the railway line or Highway 401. Lastly, there are about 20 public green spaces close by for residents to unwind in, making it very easy to get to them.
Lakeview is especially car friendly. Parking is easy, and most homes for sale are a reasonably short drive from the closest highway, such as Highway 401. However, Lakeview is not very transit friendly. Thankfully, homeowners have access to a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far-removed from most properties. It is inconvenient for people walking to move around in Lakeview as many daily needs are challenging to meet without the use of a vehicle.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing around 30% of dwellings in Lakeview, and the remaining properties are mainly large apartment buildings, small apartment buildings, and townhouses. This neighbourhood offers mainly two bedroom and three bedroom homes. The split between homeowners and renters is about even. Around half of properties in this neighbourhood were built between 1960 and 1980, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s.
Reaching the closest grocery store on foot is practical for some, but not all, home buyers in this area. Residents are served by around 20 restaurants and cafes as well. In terms of education, both primary and secondary schools are easy to reach on foot from any location in Lakeview. However, parents and their children may consider it challenging to reach daycares as a pedestrian.
