Duffin Heights real estate guide & listings for sale
Duffin Heights is very quiet overall, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour. Green spaces aren't well-spread out, which results in them being very hard to get to from a large number of locations within this area.
Travelling by car is very easy in Duffin Heights. It is very convenient to park. On the other hand, this neighbourhood is not an especially pleasant part of Pickering for moving around by public transit. Nevertheless, there are a few bus lines, and it is easy to get to a nearby bus stop from most houses. Travelling on foot is not very convenient for property owners in this neighbourhood as meeting daily needs is inconvenient. It is also difficult to get around by bike in this area since there are quite a few hills, and Duffin Heights is home to a rather poor bicycling infrastructure.
Homeowners occupy roughly 90% of the units in the neighbourhood whereas the remainder are rented. The housing stock of this area is composed primarily of single detached homes and townhouses. This part of the city experienced its largest building boom following the year 2000, so most of the available homes are from this era. This area offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes.
Duffin Heights does not contain any high schools or primary schools. In addition, there are only a very small number of daycares and thus they can be a very long walk away. With respect to food, shopping for one's groceries very often necessitates the use of a car in this part of Pickering.
