Wellington real estate guide & listings for sale
Wellington is a very good neighbourhood to buy a home in for those who prefer a slower-paced ambience. Parks are especially well-distributed and there are a few of them nearby for residents to visit, which makes them easy to get to. Most areas in this neighbourhood are very quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour.
Driving is an excellent mode of transportation in Wellington. It is very easy to come across a place to park, and many homes for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the nearest highway. However, travelling by transit can be occasionally difficult in Wellington as a result of the low service level. Thankfully, the neighbourhood is linked by about 10 bus lines, and it is especially convenient to find a nearby bus stop from most houses. Bicycling is easy in Wellington as there are a large number of bike lanes, and there are a limited number of elevation changes to challenge cyclists. Walking is not particularly practical for property owners in Wellington because few daily errands can be run on foot.
