London real estate guide & listings for sale
London offers a slower-paced atmosphere and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time in green spaces. There are over 400 parks close by for residents to unwind in, like Medway Valley Heritage Forest and Westminster Ponds, which makes it easy to access them. This city is also reasonably quiet, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although that is not the case closer to Highway 402, Highway 401, the airport (YXU) or one of the railway lines.
Driving is a very good mode of transportation in London. It is very convenient to park. In contrast, getting around by transit can be challenging in this city by reason of the service's low frequency. Nevertheless, house owners have access to approximately 30 bus lines, and most homes are close to a bus stop. London is not very well-suited for walking because running daily errands is impractical on foot.
In London, about half of dwellings are single detached homes, but large apartment buildings, small apartment buildings, and townhouses are also present in the housing stock. Around 30% of homes in this city were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s. This city also has a good variety of housing size options; it is quite easy to find houses ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Roughly 60% of the population of this city own their home and renters make up the remainder.
In this city, parents and their schoolchildren will often be able to access primary schools on foot. However, it can be challenging to reach high schools as a pedestrian. Besides public schools, there are private elementary and high schools. When it comes to food, reaching one of over 200 grocery stores on foot is practical for some, but not all, house buyers in this city. There are also a few opportunities for those who care about restaurants and cafes within walking distance.
