Legacy real estate guide & listings for sale
Legacy offers a slower-paced environment and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time in green spaces. Parks are easy to reach since there are a few of them nearby for residents to unwind in. This area is also good for those who need a quiet atmosphere, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - however some parts can be quite noisy, especially closer to Highway 407.
Moving around by car is especially convenient in Legacy. Coming across a place to park is generally easy, and the majority of homes for sale are a short drive from the nearest highway, such as Highway 407. On the other hand, the public transit system in this area is not very practical. Thankfully, the neighbourhood is connected by a few bus lines, and the nearest bus stop is typically very close. Walking is not very convenient for residents in Legacy as very few daily needs can be carried out on foot. Legacy is also not very suited for bicycling as riding is made strenuous by the typically steep topography, and Legacy has a rather limited cycling infrastructure.
The predominant housing types in Legacy are single detached homes and townhouses. Most of the housing growth in this area took place in the 1990s. This part of the city offers mainly three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. Roughly all of the dwellings in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners whereas renters occupy the remainder.
Shopping for one's groceries frequently necessitates the use of a car in Legacy. Nevertheless, getting to the closest pharmacy and thus some basic food items is typically convenient. Concerning education, primary schools are easy to get to on foot from any location in this part of Markham. On the other hand, Legacy does not contain any high schools.
