Westlane real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Westlane is exemplified by its calm atmosphere. It is easy to access public green spaces from most locations within the neighbourhood, since there are about 10 of them nearby for residents to unwind in and reaching a park from the majority of properties for sale is occasionally challenging. This area is also quiet, as the streets are generally tranquil - although there are still several louder sections, especially near one of the railway lines, Queen Elizabeth Way or Highway 420.
Cars are a great transportation option in this part of the city. It is very easy to come across a parking spot, and the majority of homes for sale are a rather short drive from the nearest highway, such as Highway 420. However, residents using public transit may find very few options in Westlane as a result of the low service level. Thankfully, there are around 10 bus lines crossing the neighbourhood, and most residences are close to a bus stop. Westlane is not very suitable for walking as running daily errands is difficult on foot.
The housing stock of Westlane is composed predominantly of single detached homes and townhouses. Around 30% of properties in this part of the city were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while many of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s. This neighbourhood also has quite a good variety of housing sizes; there is a higher proportion of three bedroom homes in this neighbourhood. Roughly three quarters of the population of this neighbourhood own their home and renters make up the remainder.
Some, but not all, home buyers in Westlane will live within walking distance of the nearest grocery store. Residents benefit from over 50 restaurants and coffee shops as well. In terms of education, families may find it difficult to reach high schools and primary schools on foot. Likewise, daycares are not particularly abundant and thus tend to require a rather long walk to get to.
