Westwood real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Westwood is exemplified by its relaxed ambience. This area is especially quiet, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue. Finally, accessing parks is easy in the neighbourhood, since reaching the closest one from most properties is easy and there are around 10 green spaces close by for residents to discover.
The car is very often the favoured way to move around in Westwood. It is straightforward to come across a place to park, and nearby highways are easy to access from any location in this part of Winnipeg. In contrast, the public transit system in Westwood is not very practical. Thankfully, the neighbourhood is linked by a few bus lines, and bus stops are commonly nearby. Travelling on foot is not very feasible for home buyers in Westwood since very few daily errands can be run without having to use a vehicle.
The predominant housing types in Westwood are single detached homes and townhouses. This part of the city is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Around 90% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home and the remainder are renters. Many of the properties in this part of Winnipeg were built in the 1960s and 1970s, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960.
House buyers in Westwood will value that a grocery store is always only a reasonably short walk away. There are also a few opportunities for those who care about nearby restaurants and cafes. In terms of education, both primary and secondary schools are easy to get to on foot from anywhere in Westwood. At the primary level, there are both public and private schools. On the other hand, daycares are not especially abundant and thus not always within walking distance.
