Richmond Hill Condo Townhomes
With so much to do and so much to experience, Richmond Hill is the gift that just keeps on giving, and investing in one of the Richmond Hill condo townhomes for sale enables you to just keep on receiving. Condo townhomes are highly desirable urban housing that come in "rows" of attached structures that often have a single-vehicle garage built into their lower levels. While you will become the proud owner of a condo townhome, you do not end up acquiring the land it sits on, as that is owned by a condo corporation. You also cannot make alterations to the interior or exterior of the structure or the land without approval from the condo corporation. However, that being said...in purchasing a condo townhome in Richmond Hill, you will find that you will be joined with fellow condo townhome owners in the neighborhood to form a strong community in which you can make new friends and engage in lots of social activities. From your condo townhome, you'll be able to step outside and know that, regardless of where in Richmond Hill you are, you will be considerably close to the major roadways of the city and by extension, the amenities and recreational activities as well.
The amenities of Richmond Hill are plentiful, and while there are lots of places throughout the city that you can find them, you will find the biggest congregation of them at the intersection of 16th Avenue/Carrville Road and Yonge Street. On one corner of the intersection, you have the decent-sized shopping mall called Hillcrest Mall, and on the other corners, you have plenty of other amenities, such as a grocery store, a post office, several restaurants/fast food places, a couple of coffee shops, a couple of big box stores, a few boutiques, and plenty of other excellent stores. The major roadways ensure that, no matter where you are in Richmond Hill, you will have the innate ability to get to these amenities and more. The amenities of nearby cities like Toronto are also very accessible to you thanks to the fact many of these roadways reach far beyond Richmond Hill's boundaries. For example, Yonge Street (the longest street in the world) extends quite a distance southward and can literally bring you within a stone's throw distance from the shores of Lake Ontario in downtown Toronto; this enables you to take advantage of having access to the insane volume of amenities there, as well as what's here in Richmond Hill.
If you want to be able to live in one of the Richmond Hill condo townhomes for sale, but still wish to have access to a lot more than just what the city has to offer, it's VERY easy to get to the other nearby cities. Besides Yonge Street (which is obvious for its incredible length), the Highway 404 divides Richmond Hill's eastern half from northern Markham, and it gives prime access to the northern part of the region (right by the shores of Lake Simcoe, where watersports can be found), and proceeds straight down to the shores of Lake Ontario before curving west and turning into the Gardiner Expressway that services all of downtown Toronto. If you want even more accessibility, you have Bayview Avenue and Leslie Street, both of which service Toronto (in the case of Leslie Street, it also technically services Scarborough). By utilizing these roads in a clever fashion, you can even get beyond Toronto and Scarborough, and a day-long or weekend trip could see you heading out into the countryside towards Barrie or even way farther out, such as Orillia or somewhere else...then coming back to Richmond Hill when it was all said and done to be able to fully relax inside your condo townhome.
