West Shore real estate guide & listings for sale
Home buyers who prefer a relaxed ambience will enjoy West Shore. Although the neighbourhood does not contain any parks, public green spaces are especially well-spread out in nearby neighbourhoods, making them easy to reach. This area is also reasonably quiet, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - however some areas can be quite noisy, especially near one of the railway lines or Highway 401.
West Shore is an extremely good part of Pickering for moving around by car. Coming across a place to park is generally easy, and many houses for sale are a short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Highway 401. However, the public transit service in this neighbourhood is sometimes poor. Thankfully, there are a few bus lines, and most properties are close to a bus stop. Walking is not very feasible for house buyers in this neighbourhood as many daily needs are inconvenient to carry out without the use of a vehicle. It is also difficult to move around by bicycle in West Shore because the cycling network is not very extensive, and cyclists are faced with quite a few elevation changes.
Single detached homes and townhouses are the predominant housing type in West Shore. This part of the city offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Nearly 90% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home and 10% are renters. Most of the housing growth in this area occurred in the 1960s and 1970s.
Primary schools and daycares are easy to reach on foot from most properties for sale in West Shore. However, this part of Pickering does not contain any high schools. Regarding eating, some, but not all, house buyers in this area will reside within walking distance of the nearest grocery store. Residents of West Shore can enjoy a few restaurants as well.
