Night life is lacking.  No one moves here for the nightlife.

REASON 2

The parks – there is so much to do and see in all of the parks in this area.

REASON 2

Property maintenance and pride of ownership.  If you are not accustomed to keeping a pristine property, it may seem like a lot of work to maintain the standards of the rest of the community.

REASON 3

The schools are some of the top rated in Toronto.  From smaller schools, to high performance to a highly rates Catholic school system and alternative, this neighbourhood has them all.

REASON 3

Airport is very close which is great for frequent flyers.  But flight paths can change due to stormy conditions so you may see flights some days.

REASON 4

Mix of types of houses. From bungalows, to side splits to newer builds on spacious lots, you can find a home to suit your lifestyle. 

REASON 4

Commuter corridors are very close.  You have no excuse to not zip downtown or head north when you want to relax in your own yard.

REASON 5

The condo’s here are large.  Many were built in the 70’s and are much more spacious than the newer builds.

REASON 5

The architecture.  If you are looking for brownstones or historical homes similar to downtown you will rarely find them here.

Home Styles In The Area

The majority of homes were built in the 1960’s.  From ranch bungalows to side splits and back splits you will find a good mix of early 1960’s styles here.  There has been a focus on tearing down rebuilding, particularly in the West Dean neighbourhood and along the ravine corridors, where you will find much larger, modern homes. In the 1980’s infill neighbourhoods were created that back onto Centennial Park, north of Rathburn and west of Renforth. This neighbourhood offers some detached and semi detached 2 story homes as well.

01.

Bungalows

Bungalows. Bungalows are a common theme in this neighbourhood.  They were built in a time where spacious lots were common and homes could spread out with room on either side for walkways between properties.  Driveways and garages are abundant.

02.

Splits

Similar to the bungalow, sidesplits and back splits are common here.  The back split can be deceiving as they appear to be small bunglaows.  But once inside, middle floors between the main floor and basements give way to bonus family rooms and offices, similar to side splits. There are many mid- century gems to be found throughout this neighbourhood (and the rest of Etobicoke). Many remain untouched and families work to preserve the mid century charm while adding modern touches.

03.

Recent Builds

In addition to some neighbourhood infills of the 80’s, the area is has many newer homes that have been built in place of the bungalows due to their generous lots.  With many styles fitting into these tree lines neighbourhoods, it is not uncommon to see farmhouse style 2 stories, and large extravagant homes with all of today’s modern conveniences built in.
