Forest Glade real estate guide & listings for sale
Forest Glade offers a slower-paced ambience and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. Public green spaces, like Twin Oaks and Derwent Park, are very well-spread out and there are approximately 10 of them close by for residents to unwind in, which makes it easy to get to them from a large number of locations within this neighbourhood. Most areas in this part of Windsor are quiet, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several noisier sections, especially closer to E.C. Row Expressway or one of the railway lines.
The preferred method to get around in this neighbourhood is usually driving. Parking is easy, and most homes for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the nearest highway, such as E.C. Row Expressway. In contrast, Forest Glade is not very transit friendly. Thankfully, there are a few bus lines passing through the neighbourhood, and bus stops are not very far away from most properties. This part of Windsor is not very suitable for walking since very few common errands can be run without the use of a car.
The majority of the housing stock of Forest Glade is composed of townhouses and single detached homes, while the remainder are mainly small apartment buildings. This area is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Around two thirds of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and one third are rented. Roughly 60% of the homes in this part of Windsor were built between 1960 and 1980, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1980s and the 1990s.
A fraction of home buyers in this part of Windsor may be able to purchase their groceries on foot in one of about 10 stores, while others will need another means of transportation. A limited selection of restaurants and coffee shops is available as well. With respect to education, primary schools are easy to reach on foot from most homes for sale in Forest Glade. On the other hand, there are only a limited number of high schools and consequently they can be an extended walk away.
