Westmount real estate guide & listings for sale
Westmount offers a slower-paced environment and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. This area is very quiet, as the streets are very calm. Lastly, there are around 10 public green spaces nearby for residents to unwind in, such as Jesse Davidson Park and Cresthaven Woods, and they are very well-distributed, which makes it easy to reach them from the majority of locations in the neighbourhood.
Moving around by car is very convenient in Westmount. It is straightforward to park. However, the public transit network in this area is rather limited. Thankfully, house owners have access to a few bus lines, and most properties are very close to a bus stop. Travelling on foot is not very convenient for home buyers in Westmount since very few common errands can be run without the use of a vehicle.
Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing around half of buildings in Westmount, while large apartment buildings and townhouses make up most of the remaining housing stock. This part of the city also has a good choice of housing size options; homes range from lofts to four or more bedrooms. About two thirds of the population of this neighbourhood own their home and renters make up the remainder. About 45% of properties in this part of London were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while many of the remaining buildings were built in the 1980s and the 1990s.
Parents and their children will value that no matter where their home is located in Westmount, primary schools are nearby. On the other hand, high schools are not particularly abundant and consequently may require a long walk to get to. In terms of food, home buyers in this area will value that a grocery store is always only a rather short walk away. A small selection of restaurants and cafes is available as well.
