Galetta real estate guide & listings for sale
Galetta is quiet overall, as the streets are reasonably peaceful - although there are still several noisier areas, especially around one of the railway lines or Highway 417. Parks aren't well-situated, which makes it very difficult to access them. Still, there are a few green spaces close by for residents to visit.
This part of the city is especially car friendly. Parking is easy. This area is not very conducive to walking because meeting daily needs is very inconvenient by walking. Travelling by bicycle is also difficult in Galetta as there are very few bike lanes, and the topography is not particularly flat.
Around one third of properties in Galetta were constructed before the 1960s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1980s. The sizeable percentage of single detached homes in the housing stock of this neighbourhood is an important part of its character. Homeowners occupy nearly 90% of the properties in the neighbourhood and the rest are rented. This neighbourhood is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes.
There are no high schools and no primary schools in Galetta. In addition, parents may consider it very hard for their children to get to daycares as a pedestrian. As far as food is concerned, purchasing one's groceries usually demands the use of a car in Galetta.
