Richmond Hill Homes
Are you in the market for a fantastic detached home in a city filled with charm and excellence? You're in luck, as the Richmond Hill detached homes for sale strive to ensure that, no matter what, you will be given the full benefit of the city's urban lifestyle. Detached homes come in a wide variety of structures, ranging from ranchers and bungalows and mobile homes to cottages, sidesplits, backsplits, single-story homes, multi-story homes, and even larger farmhouses out in the country. To live in one of the detached homes in Richmond Hill means accessibility to all of the amenities that the city offers to you, as well as being able to use the major roadways of the city to reach virtually any part of it and even beyond. The major roadways are what puts every detached home in Richmond Hill within a short distance of the best shopping of the city, as well as the best recreational activities. You're also within range of the Richmond Hill and Langstaff GO stations, which will enable an even greater distance of travel from your detached home to almost any town or city in extreme southern Ontario (even as far away as Niagara Falls or Hamilton).
You will find that, while there are amenities all over Richmond Hill that can be reached from any of the Richmond Hill detached homes for sale, the biggest density of these amenities are located at the intersection of Yonge Street and Carrville Road/16th Avenue. Besides the presence of a good-sized shopping mall called Hillcrest Mall, and in and around it, you will find such amenities as an inordinate number of restaurants/fast food places, a couple of banks, a couple of pharmacies, a couple of coffee shops, a post office, a few different boutiques, along with several other wonderful stores that are sure to be of benefit and enjoyment to you. While the amenities are here in Richmond Hill to provide lots of entertainment, shopping, and overall appeal to you, it's inevitable that sooner or later, you're probably going to want to take a trip into the capital city of Toronto itself to do what some might call the "real" shopping thanks to all of the city's malls and high-end stores. Well, you can take solace from the knowledge that, when you're done having your day in the big city, you can come rest back at your detached home in Richmond Hill, the little city with a lot.
Transportation throughout Richmond Hill is made easy thanks to the aforementioned GO trains and the public transit service. However, if neither of these are for you, and you'd rather use your own vehicle to head out from whichever of the Richmond Hill detached homes for sale you chose, then you're in luck, for the major roadways of the city intersect with each other in such a way that it is immensely easy to get where you're going quick. Yonge Street (which happens to be the longest single street on Earth when all of its extensions are factored in) is the road to everywhere; be it the shores of Lake Ontario in the south, or the city of Barrie in the north and beyond, Yonge Street can get you wherever you need to go. Major Mackenzie Drive can take you through Vaughan, Richmond Hill, and northern Markham (allowing for access between these cities rapidly), and in Vaughan, Major Mackenzie Drive literally passes right by Canada's Wonderland (a fantastic amusement park that serves as one of the ultimate attractions for this region). You also have the Highway 404, which not only gives you access to Toronto's downtown, but thanks to the Don Valley Parkway, Gardiner Expressway and the Queen Elizabeth Way (its extensions), you could even get all the way to Niagara Falls if you wanted to.
