Royal Orchard real estate guide & listings for sale
Home buyers who prefer a slower-paced ambience will enjoy Royal Orchard. It is easy to reach parks since there are a few of them close by for residents to visit. Most areas in this neighbourhood are quiet, as noise from the streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although that is not the case around the railway line.
The favoured approach to get around in Royal Orchard is very often a car. It is very easy to come across a place to park, and the majority of properties for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the closest highway. In contrast, travelling by transit can be sometimes challenging in Royal Orchard as a result of the service's low frequency. Nevertheless, property owners have access to around 10 bus lines, and bus stops are usually nearby. Travelling by foot in this part of Markham is not very common, even though running daily errands is easy by walking. Royal Orchard is also not very bike-friendly as riding is made difficult by the often steep area, and the bicycling network is fairly poor.
In Royal Orchard, about half of dwellings are single detached homes, while large apartment buildings and townhouses are the main alternatives in the housing stock.
