Midtown real estate guide & listings for sale
Midtown is fairly good for those who like quiet surroundings, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case near Highway 401. Parks aren't well-situated, making it very hard to reach them.
Cars are a great medium of transportation in Midtown. Nearby highways, such as Highway 401, are very easy to access from anywhere in this neighbourhood, and it is convenient to come across a place to park. In contrast, public transit users may have limited options in Midtown as a result of the service's low frequency. Nonetheless, there are about 10 bus lines, and the nearest bus stop is usually just around the corner. It is challenging to travel by bike in Midtown because the bicycling network is quite poor, and riding is rendered arduous by the typically sloping area. It is also at times challenging for people walking to move around in this part of the town as few common errands can be run without the use of a car.
In Midtown, many buildings are single detached homes, while townhouses make up most of the remaining housing stock. This area is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. About 90% of the dwellings in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners while the rest are rented. About half of properties in this area were constructed in the 1980s, while most of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1960s.
It is easy to get to the nearest supermarket on foot in this area. Furthermore, those who like to eat in restaurants will have a good number of options, and a limited selection of cafes is available as well. It is also convenient to access a variety of clothing stores on foot. In terms of education, parents and their schoolchildren will welcome the proximity to daycares and schools, which are within walking distance from most properties for sale in this neighbourhood.
