Newcastle real estate guide & listings for sale
Newcastle is fairly good for those who like a quiet atmosphere, as the streets are generally quite calm - however noise can be problematic near one of the railway lines or Highway 401.
Driving is an excellent medium of transportation in Newcastle. It is very convenient to come across a parking spot, and nearby highways, such as Highway 401, are very easy to reach from any location in this area. On the other hand, travelling by transit can be very difficult in Newcastle due to the infrequent service. Thankfully, the neighbourhood is connected by a few bus lines, and bus stops are usually a short walk away. Newcastle is not very suitable for walking since running daily errands is difficult.
Roughly 40% of properties in Newcastle were constructed following the year 2000, while most of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1960s. The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of this part of the municipality is an important part of its character. About 90% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home while renters make up the remainder. This area is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes.
A fraction of property owners in Newcastle may be able to do their groceries on foot, while others will have to use another means of transportation. There are also a few options for those who appreciate restaurants and cafes in close proximity. Regarding education, there are only a limited number of primary schools in this part of the municipality and accordingly they can be a long walk away. Likewise, Newcastle does not have any high schools. Additionally, parents may find it very difficult for their schoolchildren to reach daycares on foot.
