Southdown real estate guide & listings for sale
There are a lot of green spaces to enjoy in Southdown. There are a few green spaces close by for residents to unwind in, including Meadowwood Park and Harding Waterfront Estate, making them easy to access. It is relatively calm in this area, since there are very few people out and about on the streets.
The car is usually the favoured way to get around in Southdown. It is very easy to find a parking spot. In contrast, the public transit service in Southdown is not especially frequent. Nonetheless, there is the Clarkson Station on the Lakeshore West Line. The neighbourhood is connected by about 10 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far from most houses. Even though a few bicycling-friendly sectors exist, this neighbourhood is not especially suited for cycling because the bicycling infrastructure is not particularly comprehensive, and there are a good number of hills. It is also impractical for pedestrians to move around in Southdown because very few common errands can be run without the use of a car.
Roughly 95% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and 5% are rented. In this area, around half of dwellings are townhouses, and the rest are mainly small apartment buildings and single detached homes. A majority of the housing growth in this area happened between 1960 and 1980. This part of Mississauga offers mainly three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes.
It is a reasonably short walk to access primary schools from most properties for sale in this part of the city. On the other hand, Southdown does not contain any high schools. In terms of food, reaching the closest grocery store by walking is an option for some, but not all, house buyers in this area. Residents are served by around 30 restaurants and cafes as well.
