Vaudreuil-Dorion real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Vaudreuil-Dorion is exemplified by its calm environment. The greenery in this city is not particularly prominent; more specifically, residents will find that there are few tree-lined streets. Nonetheless, there are over 50 green spaces close by for residents to enjoy, which makes them easy to get to from the majority of locations within the city. Most areas in this city are reasonably quiet, as the streets are usually peaceful - although there are still several noisier sections, especially closer to Autoroute de l'Acier, Autoroute du Souvenir or one of the railway lines.
Vaudreuil-Dorion is very car friendly. Parking is easy, and most real estate listings are a reasonably short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Autoroute du Souvenir. On the other hand, this part of the Greater Montréal metropolitan area is not very transit friendly. Thankfully, homeowners profit from the Vaudreuil Station and Dorion Station on the Vaudreuil-Hudson Line. The city is linked by about 10 bus lines, and bus stops are generally a short walk away. A majority of the houses for sale in this city are located in places that are not very suitable for those who travel by foot since very few common errands can be run without having to use a car.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing most dwellings in Vaudreuil-Dorion, and the rest are mainly small apartment buildings. Roughly 45% of properties in this city were constructed following the year 2000, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1980s. This city is primarily composed of two bedroom and three bedroom homes. About 80% of the dwellings in the city are occupied by homeowners while renters occupy the remainder.
A fraction of residents in Vaudreuil-Dorion may be able to do their grocery shopping by walking in one of approximately 20 stores, while others will have to rely on another means of transportation. There are also a few choices for those who value nearby restaurants and cafes. When it comes to education, parents and their schoolchildren may find it difficult to reach high schools and primary schools as pedestrians. In addition to public schools, there are private primary and secondary schools. Furthermore, there are only a few daycares and thus they can be an extended walk away.
