Midtown real estate guide & listings for sale
Midtown is fairly good for those who like quiet areas, as there are usually low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several noisier sections, especially close to Highway 401. Parks aren't well-situated, resulting in them being very hard to get to from many locations in this part of the town.
Cars are a great transportation option in Midtown. It is easy to find a parking spot, and many real estate listings are a short drive from the nearest highway, such as Highway 401. On the other hand, public transit riders may find few options in this part of the town by reason of the infrequent service. Nonetheless, there are about 10 bus lines passing through the neighbourhood, and it is straightforward to reach a nearby bus stop from most houses. Walking is not particularly practical for property owners in this part of Ajax because few day-to-day needs can be met without having to resort to a car. The bicycle is a rather poor means of transportation in Midtown because there are quite a few elevation changes, and there are very few bike lanes.
Around half of properties in Midtown were constructed in the 1980s, while most of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1960s. In this neighbourhood, about three quarters of dwellings are single detached homes, and the remaining homes are mainly townhouses. Homeowners occupy around 90% of the units in Midtown whereas the remainder are rented. This part of the town also has a selection of housing sizes - this neighbourhood is notable for those looking for three bedroom homes.
A supermarket is ordinarily accessible within a reasonably short walk from most houses for sale in this neighbourhood. Furthermore, those who like to eat in restaurants will have a fair number of options, and there are also a few cafes in this area. It is also convenient to access a selection of clothing stores on foot. With respect to education, in Midtown, parents and their children will typically be able to get to schools and daycares by walking. Families can choose between public and private secondary schools.
