Lambeth real estate guide & listings for sale
Most areas in Lambeth are reasonably quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - however some parts can be quite loud, especially near Highway 402. Parks aren't well-located, which makes it sometimes hard to get to them. Still, there are a few green spaces nearby for residents to visit, including Sandra Mcinnis Woods and Lambeth Centennial Park.
Driving is an excellent medium of transportation in Lambeth. The majority of houses for sale are a rather short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Highway 402, and it is very convenient to park. On the other hand, getting around by public transit is very hard in Lambeth. Nevertheless, there are a few bus lines passing through the neighbourhood, and bus stops are not very far from most properties. Travelling on foot is not very feasible for residents in this part of London as running daily errands is challenging by walking.
Around 40% of homes in Lambeth were built following the year 2000, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1960s. The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of this neighbourhood is an important part of its character. Homeowners occupy about 85% of the dwellings in Lambeth and the rest are rented. This area is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes.
Some, but not all, house buyers in this neighbourhood will live within walking distance of the closest grocery store. Residents benefit from a few restaurants and coffee shops as well. As far as education is concerned, in this area, parents and their kids will generally be able to get to primary schools on foot. In contrast, there are no high schools in Lambeth. At the primary level, there are both public and private schools.
