St. Andrew-Windfields real estate guide & listings for sale
St. Andrew-Windfields offers a relaxed environment and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time in green spaces. This part of the city is reasonably good for those who prefer quiet surroundings, as the streets tend to be tranquil - although that is not the case around the railway line or Highway 401. Finally, the greenery in this area is reasonably prominent as there are numerous tree-lined streets. Getting to green spaces in the neighbourhood, including Vyner Greenbelt and Donalda Club, is easy, since reaching the closest one from the majority of properties for sale is easy and there are approximately 30 parks nearby for residents to explore.
This part of Toronto benefits from a fairly good public transit system as a result of York Mills Station on the Yonge - University Line, and about 20 nearby bus lines. However, there are relatively few pedestrians out on the streets of this area, even though running daily errands is easy by walking. It is challenging to commute by bicycle in this area since the bicycling network is quite poor, and cyclists are faced with a significant amount of hills. In contrast, commuting by car is very easy in this part of Toronto. The majority of houses for sale are a short car ride from the closest highway, such as Highway 401, and it is straightforward to park.
