London real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of London is exemplified by its relaxed atmosphere. There are over 400 green spaces close by for residents to explore, like Westminster Ponds and Medway Valley Heritage Forest, which makes them easy to access. This city is also quiet, as the streets are calm - however some parts can be quite loud, especially close to Highway 401, Highway 402, one of the railway lines or the airport (YXU).
Driving is a very good medium of transportation in this city. It is straightforward to access a place to park. In contrast, public transit riders may have few choices in London by reason of the low service level. Thankfully, homeowners benefit from around 30 bus lines, and most properties are near a bus stop. London is not very suitable for walking since very few daily errands can be run on foot.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing around 55% of buildings in London, and the rest of the homes are mainly large apartment buildings, small apartment buildings, and townhouses. This city also has a good selection of housing size options - it is quite easy to find homes ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Homeowners occupy around 60% of the properties in London and 40% are rented. About 30% of properties in this city were built in the 1960s and 1970s, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s.
Getting to one of over 200 grocery stores by walking is practical for some, but not all, property owners in this city. There are also a few choices for those who value nearby restaurants and cafes. As far as education is concerned, primary schools are convenient to reach on foot from anywhere in London. On the other hand, high schools are not particularly plentiful and therefore tend to require an extended walk to get to. Families have the choice between public and private schools at both the primary and secondary school level.
