Stamford real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Stamford is exemplified by its relaxed ambience. This area is reasonably good for those who prefer quiet surroundings, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case around the railway line, Highway 405 or Queen Elizabeth Way. Finally, public green spaces are very well-distributed and there are about 30 of them close by for residents to check out, making them easy to get to from many locations within the neighbourhood.
The favoured approach to navigate Stamford is usually driving. The majority of properties for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Highway 420, and it is very convenient to find a place to park. On the other hand, commuting by transit can be very hard in Stamford due to the low service level. Thankfully, homeowners are served by about 20 bus lines, and bus stops are typically close by. It is difficult for pedestrians to navigate Stamford because very few daily needs can be carried out on foot.
Homeowners occupy roughly 80% of the units in Stamford while the remainder are rented. In this neighbourhood, most dwellings are single detached homes, whereas the remainder are mainly townhouses. A majority of the housing growth in this part of Niagara Falls occurred between 1960 and 1980. This neighbourhood also has quite a good variety of unit sizes; there is a higher proportion of three bedroom homes in this neighbourhood.
Some residents in Stamford may have the option to buy groceries by walking in one of around 10 stores, while others will need another means of transportation. There are also a few options for those who appreciate close by restaurants and cafes. As far as education is concerned, it is a reasonably short walk to reach primary schools from anywhere in Stamford. However, families may consider it difficult for their kids to access high schools as a pedestrian.
