Rural Richmond Hill real estate guide & listings for sale
Rural Richmond Hill is reasonably quiet overall, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several louder areas, especially near the railway line or Highway 404. It is sometimes difficult to reach parks within the neighbourhood since they are spread out sporadically. Still, there are a few public green spaces close by for residents to unwind in.
Driving is very often the best transportation option in Rural Richmond Hill. The majority of houses for sale are a rather short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Highway 404, and it is very convenient to find a place to park. On the other hand, Rural Richmond Hill is not very transit friendly. Nevertheless, residents benefit from the Gormley Station with access to the Richmond Hill Line. There are around 20 bus lines, and the nearest bus stop is typically a short walk away. This area is not very suitable for those who travel by foot as carrying out daily needs is difficult by walking. Rural Richmond Hill is also not very cycling-friendly because bicycle riders encounter quite a few elevation changes, and the cycling network is fairly poor.
