Observatory real estate guide & listings for sale

Observatory offers a calm ambience and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. Green spaces are very easy to get to, since there are a few of them nearby for residents to check out and the majority of properties for sale have a park very close by. Most areas in this neighbourhood are quiet, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although that is not the case closer to the railway line.

Transportation

Travelling on foot is practical for property owners in Observatory; most daily needs are easy to meet by walking. In contrast, it is challenging to move around by bike in this part of Richmond Hill as the bicycling network is not very comprehensive, and the topography is not especially flat. Cars are a very good transportation option in Observatory. It is convenient to access a place to park. On the other hand, residents using public transit may find limited choices in this neighbourhood by reason of the service's low frequency. Thankfully, property owners are served by about 10 bus lines, and the nearest bus stop is generally just around the corner.

Housing

About two thirds of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners whereas the remainder are rented. In this part of Richmond Hill, around 45% of buildings are large apartment buildings, while single detached homes and townhouses are also present in the housing stock. The homes in this area are quite new, since about 40% of its dwellings were constructed between 1990 and 2000, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built in the 1980s and the 2000s. This neighbourhood has a good choice of housing sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.

Services

The closest grocery store in Observatory is typically only a reasonably short walk away. In addition, a restaurant is often just around the corner, and residents can enjoy a few cafes as well. It is also a reasonably short walk to a decent variety of clothing stores. Concerning education, parents and their children will welcome the proximity to daycares and schools, which are within walking distance from the majority of houses for sale in this part of Richmond Hill. At the elementary level, both public and private schools can be found.
