Southwood real estate guide & listings for sale
Southwood is especially quiet, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic. Green spaces aren't well-located, making them very hard to reach.
The favoured method to navigate Southwood is usually a car. Parking is generally easy, and it is a reasonably short drive to the closest highway from anywhere in Southwood. On the other hand, Southwood is not an especially convenient part of Ajax for travelling by public transit. Nonetheless, there are a few bus lines passing through the neighbourhood, and bus stops are generally nearby. Biking is difficult in Southwood as the bicycling network is rather poor, and there are a fair number of slopes to challenge cyclists. Travelling on foot is also not very practical for property owners in this part of the town as very few common errands can be run without the use of a vehicle.
Roughly 90% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and the remainder are rented. Single detached homes and row houses are the main housing type in this neighbourhood. A majority of the housing growth in this part of the town occurred between 1960 and 1980. Notably, this neighbourhood is good for those looking for three bedroom homes.
In this part of Ajax, parents and their kids will usually be able to get to primary schools by walking. In contrast, there are no high schools in this neighbourhood. Regarding eating, a car is commonly needed in this area to access the nearest grocery store. Nevertheless, it is generally a reasonably short walk to the nearest pharmacy, which can provide some basic food items. A limited variety of coffee shops is available as well.
