BLOOR WEST VILLAGE
Some may view Bloor-West Village as a suburb - the final frontier before Etobicoke - but this vibrant neighbourhood is closer than you think. Stretching from South Kingsway to Runnymede, it is a dynamic neighbourhood with great restaurants, bakeries, cafes and shops. The homes in this area are close to 100 years old and vary in terms of condition and state of repair. Many of the homes welcome you with front porches that make you want to rock in a chair with a lemonade in your hand (or a laptop in your lap). Despite the typically narrow 25 foot lots, many homes have been renovated to include popular modern amenities such as main floor powder rooms and central air. Parking is limited with a second car often needing to find a spot on the street. In addition to the great vibe this area offers, young families flock here for its proximity to the subway and the great schools. Bidding wars are common place for properties in this area. For canine and nature lovers, Bloor-West is home to one of Toronto’s most popular and largest parks, High Park, a vast open green space braiding recreation and nature. There you will find an off leash dog park, Grenadier Cafe Restaurant, playground and a zoo. High Park is also home to one of Toronto’s summer favourites— a pay-what-you-can outdoor amphitheater. For a unique and educational date night or something fun to do as a family, enjoy their seasonal Shakespeare play, picnic style!
