Malden real estate guide & listings for sale
One of the highlights of Malden is its vast selection of green spaces. Getting to parks, like Spring Garden Natural Area and Ojibway Tom Joy Woods, is very easy from many locations within the neighbourhood since there are a few of them nearby for residents to unwind in. It is relatively quiet in this part of Windsor, as there are very few people out and about on the streets.
This area is especially car friendly. It is a short drive to the nearest highway, such as E.C. Row Expressway, from anywhere in Malden, and it is very convenient to park. On the other hand, the public transit network in this part of the city is not very accessible. Thankfully, there are a few bus lines, and the nearest bus stop is generally close by. Walking is not very feasible for house buyers in Malden as running daily errands is challenging.
The large percentage of single detached homes in the housing stock of Malden is an important part of its character. This area is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Roughly 95% of the properties in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and 5% are occupied by renters. The homes in this area are relatively new, since around one quarter of its dwellings were built in the 1990s, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1960s.
There are no high schools and no primary schools in this neighbourhood. Moreover, it can be difficult to reach daycares as a pedestrian. With respect to food, a portion of house buyers in Malden may be able to travel to the nearest grocery store on foot, while others will have to rely on a vehicle. A small variety of restaurants and cafes can be found as well.
