Port Hope real estate guide & listings for sale
Port Hope is fairly good for those who enjoy a quiet atmosphere, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case closer to one of the railway lines or Highway 401.
Cars are an excellent mode of transportation in Port Hope. Accessing a parking spot is easy. A majority of the homes for sale in this municipality are located in places that are not very suitable for those who travel by foot since almost no daily needs can be met by walking.
The substantial percentage of single detached homes in the housing stock of Port Hope is an important part of its character. This municipality offers mainly two bedroom and three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy roughly 80% of the properties in the municipality and 20% are rented. The homes in this municipality are quite old, since around 40% of its dwellings were built before the 1960s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1980s.
It can be very difficult to reach high schools and primary schools on foot from properties for sale in Port Hope. Residents benefit from public and private schools at both the elementary and secondary school level. Furthermore, there are only a very small number of daycares and therefore they can be a very long walk away. With respect to eating, it is very rarely possible for house buyers in Port Hope to shop for groceries in one of around 10 stores on foot.
