Windsor real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Windsor is exemplified by its slower-paced ambience. This city is good for those who need a quiet atmosphere, as the streets are generally quite tranquil - however noise can be problematic around Highway 401, Dougall Parkway, the airport (YQG) or one of the railway lines. Finally, there are over 250 green spaces close by for residents to unwind in, like East Riverside and Ojibway Prarie Provincial Nature Reserve, which makes them easy to access from a lot of locations in Windsor.
The preferred way to get around in this city is very often driving. Many homes for sale are a reasonably short drive from the nearest highway, such as Dougall Parkway, and finding a parking spot is generally easy. However, travelling by transit can be difficult in this city due to the low service level. Thankfully, homeowners are served by around 10 bus lines, and it is very easy to get to a nearby bus stop from most homes. This city is not especially convenient for walking because many daily needs are occasionally challenging to meet without having to resort to a car.
Around one third of homes in Windsor were constructed before the 1960s, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1990s. Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing most dwellings in this city, whereas the rest are mainly large apartment buildings and townhouses. Homeowners occupy roughly 70% of the units in Windsor while the rest are rented. This city has a good selection of housing sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
It is often feasible for property owners in this city to do their groceries by walking. Residents benefit from over 800 restaurants and coffee shops as well. As far as education is concerned, primary schools are convenient to walk to from most houses for sale in Windsor. In contrast, high schools are not particularly abundant and thus tend to require an extended walk to get to. Besides public schools, there are private elementary and high schools.
