Malvern real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Malvern is exemplified by its relaxed ambience. This neighbourhood features a small amount of greenery; more specifically, residents will find that most streets have sub-par tree coverage. However, it is very easy to reach public green spaces from a large number of locations in the neighbourhood since there are around 40 of them close by for residents to enjoy. This part of Toronto is also quiet, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although there are still several noisier sections, especially closer to the railway line or Highway 401.
No matter the medium of transportation, it is simple to get around in Malvern. Malvern is reasonably transit friendly. For example, there are around 10 bus lines passing through the neighbourhood, and bus stops are not very far away from most residences. It is also convenient for pedestrians to navigate this neighbourhood, although running daily errands is at times challenging without a vehicle. Malvern is not especially conducive to cycling since the bicycling infrastructure is not very comprehensive, and there are a good number of hills for cyclists to brave.
In Malvern, around one third of dwellings are townhouses, whereas the remainder are mainly large apartment buildings and single detached homes. This area also has a good selection of unit sizes - properties range from lofts to four or more bedrooms. About 70% of the dwellings in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and 30% are rented. About 40% of properties in this neighbourhood were built between 1960 and 1980, while many of the remaining buildings were built in the 1980s and the 1990s.
A supermarket is ordinarily accessible within a short walk from most houses for sale in Malvern. In addition, Malvern is a fairly good place in which to go out to eat, and home buyers can enjoy a few cafes as well. A reasonable selection of clothing stores is also available within a rather short walking distance. Regarding education, both primary and secondary schools are convenient to reach on foot from anywhere in this neighbourhood. In addition to public schools, Malvern offers private schools at both the elementary and high school level. On the other hand, daycares are not especially plentiful and therefore not always within walking distance.
