Northwood real estate guide & listings for sale
Northwood is very good for those who enjoy quiet surroundings, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue.
This area is an extraordinarily good part of Thunder Bay for getting around by car. Parking is quite easy. However, the public transit system in Northwood is not very practical. Nevertheless, there are a few bus lines, and it is very easy to reach a nearby bus stop from most properties. This part of the city is not very suitable for walking since very few common errands can be run without the use of a vehicle.
In Northwood, around two thirds of dwellings are single detached homes, while small apartment buildings and townhouses are also present in the housing stock. A majority of the housing growth in this neighbourhood happened between 1960 and 1980. This part of the city is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy roughly three quarters of the dwellings in Northwood and one quarter are rented.
A supermarket is usually reachable within a rather short walk from any home in Northwood. Residents benefit from approximately 10 restaurants and cafes as well. When it comes to education, in this area, families will usually be able to access both primary and secondary schools by walking. Along with public schools, there are private high schools. On the other hand, there are only a few daycares and thus they can be a rather long walk away.
