West Humber-Clairville real estate guide & listings for sale
One of the highlights of West Humber-Clairville is its broad selection of green spaces. To be more precise, it is very easy to access public green spaces from the majority of locations within the neighbourhood, since there are over 50 of them nearby for residents to enjoy, like Claireville Conservation Area and Disco Yard. However, a lot of streets have sub-par tree coverage. Lastly, this neighbourhood is relatively calm, due to the presence of very few people out and about on the streets.
The favoured method to navigate West Humber-Clairville is usually driving. The majority of properties for sale are a short car ride from the closest highway, such as Highway 407, and it is especially convenient to park. This neighbourhood is also transit friendly owing to Etobicoke North Station on the Kitchener Line, and approximately 30 nearby bus lines. Walking is not very practical for residents in West Humber-Clairville because few common errands can be run on foot. It is also difficult to commute by bicycle in West Humber-Clairville since the cycling infrastructure is not very extensive, and bike riders encounter a significant amount of hills.

It is a reasonably short walk to access primary schools from most properties for sale in this part of Toronto. However, high schools are not very abundant and thus tend to require an extended walk to get to. In addition to public schools, there are private primary and high schools. When it comes to eating, it is convenient to access the closest supermarket by walking from most houses for sale in West Humber-Clairville. Likewise, a restaurant is commonly just around the corner, and a limited number of cafes can be found as well.
