Newcastle real estate guide & listings for sale
Newcastle 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 closer to Highway 401 or one of the railway lines.
Driving is very often the preferred approach to move around in this area. It is a short car ride to the nearest highway, such as Highway 401, from any location in this neighbourhood, and it is especially convenient to find a place to park. However, commuting by transit can be very difficult in Newcastle by reason of the infrequent service. Thankfully, residents have access to a few bus lines, and most properties are near a bus stop. Newcastle is not very suitable for those who travel by foot since running common errands is very difficult.
The large percentage of single detached homes in the housing stock of Newcastle is an important part of its character. This area is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. About 90% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home whereas the remainder are renters. About 40% of properties in this part of Clarington were constructed after the year 2000, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1960s.
Some property owners in this area may be able to access the nearest grocery store on foot, while others will have to use a vehicle. Residents benefit from around 10 restaurants and coffee shops as well. In terms of education, there are only a limited number of primary schools in Newcastle and accordingly they can be a long walk away. Moreover, this area does not contain any high schools. In addition, parents and their children may consider it very difficult to get to daycares as a pedestrian.
