Chartwell real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Chartwell is exemplified by its calm environment. This area is good for those who prefer a quiet atmosphere, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - however some parts can be quite noisy, especially closer to Trans-Canada Highway. Finally, accessing public green spaces is very easy from many locations in the neighbourhood since there are about 20 of them close by for residents to discover.
The preferred mode of transportation in this area is very often driving. It is very convenient to come across a parking spot, and nearby highways, such as Trans-Canada Highway, are very easy to reach from anywhere in Chartwell. However, travelling by public transit is challenging in this part of the municipality. Thankfully, there are a few bus lines, and most houses are very close to a bus stop. Chartwell is not very cycling-friendly as Chartwell has a quite poor bicycling infrastructure, and riding a bike is made difficult by the often sloping area. Walking is also not very convenient for residents in Chartwell as very few common errands can be run on foot.
