Tanglewood real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Tanglewood is exemplified by its calm atmosphere. It is easy to get to public green spaces from many locations within the neighbourhood since there are a few of them nearby for residents to enjoy. This area is also fairly good for those who need quiet surroundings, as noise from the streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although that is not the case close to the railway line.
Commuting by car is very convenient in this area. Accessing a parking spot is easy. On the other hand, commuting by transit can be sometimes challenging in Tanglewood due to the infrequent service. Thankfully, the neighbourhood is served by around 10 bus lines, and most residences are very close to a bus stop. Tanglewood is conducive to biking because the cycling network is very comprehensive, and bicycling is made easier by the generally flat terrain. It is sometimes challenging for people travelling on foot to navigate this area since many daily needs are difficult to meet by walking.
Homeowners occupy roughly two thirds of the dwellings in the neighbourhood whereas the remainder are rented. The predominant housing types in this area are single detached homes and townhouses. Most housing in this part of the city was built in the 1960s and 1970s, during its largest construction boom. This part of Ottawa is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes.
House buyers in Tanglewood will appreciate that a grocery store is always only a reasonably short walk away. A small number of restaurants and cafes can be found as well. When it comes to education, it is a rather short walk to get to both primary and secondary schools from any location in Tanglewood. However, families may consider it very difficult to access daycares as a pedestrian.
