Weston real estate guide & listings for sale
Weston is a good neighbourhood to buy a home in for those who prefer a calm environment. This area is quiet overall, as there are usually low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several louder sections, especially closer to one of the railway lines. Finally, greenery is quite present in this area; parks, like Weston Lions Park and Canadian Ukrainian Memorial Park, are very well-situated and there are about 10 of them nearby for residents to discover, making it very easy to get to them. In addition, residents will find that the tree canopy coverage for most streets is good.
Weston will please homeowners that appreciate a diversity of means of transportation. The very good public transit access allows people to get to many destinations without needing a vehicle as a result of 2 train stations (e.g., Weston GO Station and Weston Station) on the Kitchener Line and Union Pearson Express Line, and a few nearby bus lines. It is also easy for pedestrians to navigate Weston; many day-to-day needs can be met by walking. Commuting by bicycle is at times challenging in Weston as cyclists encounter quite a few hills, and there are a limited number of bike lanes.
Large apartment buildings are the most common housing type, representing around 55% of buildings in Weston, while the rest are mainly small apartment buildings and single detached homes. About one third of properties in this part of the city were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1990s. This neighbourhood is primarily composed of two bedroom and one bedroom homes. Roughly two thirds of the dwellings in the neighbourhood are occupied by renters and the rest are occupied by owners.
It is especially convenient to get to the closest grocery store by walking in Weston. Additionally, this area is a good place in which to eat out or go to a cafe. Property owners have access to a fair number of nearby clothing stores. When it comes to education, parents and their children will appreciate that no matter where their home is located in Weston, daycares and schools are close by. In addition to public schools, there are private elementary and high schools.
