Rural real estate guide & listings for sale
The noise levels in Rural are low, as the streets tend to be quite peaceful - although that is not the case closer to the airport (ZBA), Highway 407 or the railway line. Green spaces are rather challenging to reach since they are spread out sporadically. Still, there are a few parks close by for residents to enjoy.
The best method of transportation in Rural is usually driving. It is very easy to park. This area is not very appropriate for cycling as bicycle riders are faced with a considerable amount of elevation changes, and there are very few bike lanes. Travelling on foot is also not very feasible for home buyers in this area because almost no common errands can be run without having to resort to a car.
The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of Rural is an important part of its character. This neighbourhood is primarily composed of three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy nearly 90% of the dwellings in Rural while the rest are rented. Around half of properties in this neighbourhood were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while many of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s.
There are only a very small number of primary schools in this neighbourhood and therefore they can be a very long walk away. Likewise, Rural does not have any high schools. Additionally, daycares are not plentiful and consequently tend to require a very long walk to get to. As far as food is concerned, a vehicle is almost always needed in this neighbourhood to reach the closest grocery store.
