Malvern real estate guide & listings for sale
People who prefer a relaxed environment will enjoy Malvern. There is a small amount of greenery in this part of the city; to be more specific, residents will find that relatively few tree-lined streets are present. However, there are approximately 40 parks nearby for residents to check out, like Burrows Hall Park and Neilson Park, and they are very well-situated, which makes it very easy to get to them. Most areas in this part of Toronto are quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case around Highway 401 or the railway line.
Malvern will please homeowners that value a diversity of means of transportation. The good public transit access allows people to get to many destinations without needing a car. Residents are served by around 10 bus lines, and the nearest bus stop is generally very close. Malvern is also a fairly convenient part of Toronto for pedestrians, although meeting day-to-day needs is sometimes challenging on foot. Malvern is not particularly bicycling-friendly because there are a fair number of elevation changes, and there are few bike lanes.
In Malvern, about one third of dwellings are townhouses, but large apartment buildings and single detached homes are also present in the housing stock. This part of the city has a good variety of housing size options, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Around 70% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home and 30% are renters. About 40% of homes in this neighbourhood were built between 1960 and 1980, while many of the remaining buildings were built in the 1980s and the 1990s.
Both primary and secondary schools are easy to access on foot from any location in Malvern. Apart from public schools, Malvern is home to private schools at both the elementary and high school level. In contrast, it can be difficult to access daycares as a pedestrian. With respect to eating, house buyers in this neighbourhood will welcome that a grocery store is always only a short walk away. Moreover, a restaurant is commonly just around the corner, and a small number of coffee shops can be found as well. House buyers benefit from a fair number of nearby clothing stores.
