Rural Markham real estate guide & listings for sale
Rural Markham is reasonably quiet, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case around one of the railway lines or Highway 407. Public green spaces are sparse, which results in them being rather challenging to get to from the majority of locations in this area. Despite that, residents will be able to access parks in nearby neighbourhoods.
Driving is very often the best transportation option in Rural Markham. It is very convenient to come across a place to park. On the other hand, this neighbourhood is not a very pleasant part of Markham for moving around by public transit. Nonetheless, the neighbourhood is linked by a few bus lines. Rural Markham is not very bicycling-friendly because there is a considerable amount of elevation changes, and the cycling network is quite poor. This area is also not very suitable for walking because almost no daily errands can be run without the use of a vehicle.
Single detached homes are the main housing type, representing most buildings in Rural Markham, while townhouses are also present in the housing stock. This area experienced its largest building boom after the year 2000, so most of the available properties are from this era. This neighbourhood is notable for those looking for four or more bedroom homes. Roughly 85% of the dwellings in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and 15% are rented.
There are only a very small number of primary schools in this part of the city and accordingly they can be a very long walk away. Furthermore, Rural Markham does not have any high schools. Additionally, it can be very hard to access daycares as a pedestrian. As far as eating is concerned, in all but a very small number of cases, a vehicle is needed to buy groceries.
