Mill Pond, due to its rural nature, tends to attract development of large homes that have features such as multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, and modern renovations within the kitchen and living room areas to reflect a 21st century style of living.
Heritage Estates has an overwhelmingly abundance of townhouse units due to recent developments in the neighbourhood. There are also a few detached homes within this area for those who would prefer an added amount of privacy in their lives. Many of the homes reflect a Georgian-style look that was popular in the 1800s. Many of these homes offer multi-car garages along with bonus features that include recreational rooms and fully installed bars.
Bayview Hill and Jefferson’s recent household developments contain a balanced mix of detached and semi-attached homes. With that said, these homes tend to be smaller in size compared to those that are seen in the Mill Pond and Heritage Estates neighbourhoods. They also happen to be closer in proximity to the busier areas of the city.
Yonge Street and East Beaver tend to be similar in that they are the only areas to contain a relatively high density of apartments and condos that are available for rental or purchase. This falls in line with the presence of many businesses and stores in this area, which allows professionals a relatively easy commute to their place of employment.
Richmond Hill also features top ranking schools such as Bayview Secondary School (IB), Christ The King Catholic Elementary School, Silver Stream Public School. As per elementary education (K-8), there are a total of 25 elementary schools that exist within Richmond Hill. The city has consistently beaten provincial averages for testing in reading, writing, and mathematics.
