Mineola real estate guide & listings for sale
Mineola offers a slower-paced atmosphere and will appeal to those who enjoy spending time outdoors. There are about 20 green spaces nearby for residents to check out, including Dellwood Park, and they are very well-distributed, which makes them easy to reach. This neighbourhood is reasonably quiet overall, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although there are still several noisier areas, especially close to the railway line or Queen Elizabeth Way.
Cars are an excellent medium of transportation in this area. Finding a place to park is generally easy, and the majority of houses for sale are a short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Queen Elizabeth Way. On the other hand, Mineola is not particularly transit friendly. Nevertheless, there are a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far away from most homes. This area is not particularly cycling-friendly as the cycling network is fairly poor, and there are a good number of slopes for cyclists to brave. Walking in this part of the city is also not very common, although many daily errands can be run without the use of a vehicle.
About 90% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and 10% are rented. The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of this area is an important part of its character. The buildings in this neighbourhood are quite old, since about 45% of its dwellings were built before the 1960s, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 2000s. This neighbourhood offers mainly three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes.
The nearest supermarket in this area is generally only a rather short walk away. Additionally, Mineola is a good place in which to go out to eat, and home buyers can enjoy a few cafes as well. When it comes to education, both primary and secondary schools are convenient to get to on foot from most houses for sale in Mineola. On the other hand, there are only a few daycares and therefore they can be a rather long walk away.
