Northland real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Northland is exemplified by its slower-paced ambience. This area is quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour. Finally, although the neighbourhood does not contain any parks, green spaces are well-distributed in nearby neighbourhoods, which results in them being easy to access from most locations in Northland.
Northland is very car friendly. Accessing a place to park is generally easy, and it is a reasonably short car ride to the closest highway from anywhere in this part of the city. However, public transit riders may find limited choices in Northland due to the low service level. Nevertheless, the neighbourhood is served by a few bus lines, and bus stops are generally nearby. Travelling by bicycle is at times difficult in Northland as the topography is not especially flat, and the cycling network is rather limited. It is also impractical for pedestrians to navigate this part of Waterloo as very few daily errands can be run on foot.
Roughly 60% of the properties in the neighbourhood are occupied by renters whereas owners occupy the remainder. In this part of the city, many dwellings are small apartment buildings, while single detached homes are also present in the housing stock. Around half of properties in this neighbourhood were built between 1980 and 1990, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1990s. This neighbourhood also has a variety of housing sizes; this area is especially good for those looking for two bedroom homes.
Some, but not all, house buyers in this part of Waterloo will reside within walking distance of the closest supermarket. Conversely, a cafe is commonly just around the corner, and there are also a limited number of choices for those who appreciate nearby restaurants. A good variety of clothing stores can also be found within a rather short walking distance. When it comes to education, Northland does not have any high schools or primary schools. Furthermore, parents and their schoolchildren may consider it difficult to access daycares as a pedestrian.
