An interesting website to rate whether a property is located close to amenities is WalkScore (update: new link: https://www.redfin.com/how-walk-score-works. For each address, the site will give you a score between 1 and 100 as to walkability. Using the StreetSmart Walkscore feature, you can see what routes to take and what types of facilities are nearby. Here is an example for an apartment complex in Sherwood. A generalisation: The higher the walk score, the better the location of the property.
