Terrace Hill real estate guide & listings for sale
Terrace Hill is a fairly good neighbourhood to buy a house in for those who prefer a calm atmosphere. Parks are especially well-located and there are approximately 10 of them close by for residents to explore, which makes it easy to access them. This area is also reasonably quiet, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case around Highway 403 or the railway line.
The favoured method of transportation in this area is very often a car. Most houses for sale are a rather short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Highway 403, and it is very easy to access a parking spot. On the other hand, there aren't many pedestrians out on the streets of this part of Brantford, despite the fact that running common errands is convenient.
