Lexington real estate guide & listings for sale
Home buyers who prefer a slower-paced environment will enjoy Lexington. It is easy to get to parks in the neighbourhood since there are a few of them close by for residents to visit. The noise levels in this area are also very low, as the streets are very calm.
Moving around by car is very easy in Lexington. It is straightforward to park, and many properties for sale are a rather short drive from the nearest highway. On the other hand, the public transit network in this area is rather poor. Nonetheless, residents are served by a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far away from most properties. Even though the cycling network is fairly good, Lexington is not especially appropriate for cycling as there is a significant amount of slopes. Walking is also not very feasible for property owners in this part of Waterloo as very few common errands can be run without needing to resort to a vehicle.
