Nature at Your Doorstep in High Park North, West-end Toronto
West-end Toronto’s leafy neighbourhood High Park North is one of the “Fave” hoods known for being walkable as well as bike and transit friendly. The closest Bloor-Danforth subway stations of Dundas St. West, Keele and High Park, offer easy access to both the downtown core as well as connecting west to Pearson Airport.
This mainly residential area is home to Victorian, Edwardian, and Tudor styles dating from the late 19th and early 20th century. Today we have an array of residents attracted to living here from students, artists, professionals and affluent owners of the original mansions that line the tree-lined streets surrounding High Park.
It’s a family oriented area which draws young and mature families alike to an
urban lifestyle that is defined by the many surrounding great schools, Annette Recreation Centre and High Park itself. Within it’s 400 acres are found off-leash dog areas, picnic spots, trails, tennis, skating rinks, pool, flower gardens, baseball diamonds, live outdoor theatre, famous Sakura cherry blossoms as well as Grenadier Restaurant.
This unique neighbourhood is also known as having an array of great eateries to choose from. High Park North offers food and drink choices from Indian at Bawara, Mexican at Aztec’s Mine, Whelan’s Pub and Sushi at Osaka Sushi, as well as being so close to other fab shops, deli’s, pubs, patios, artisanal boutiques, and cafes found near the Bloor West Village, the Junction and Roncesvalles communities.
High Park North is home to mostly residential properties being detached, semi’s, townhomes, condominiums, and rentals. Those looking for an entry to purchase often choose from the condos in the immediate area. Rental duplex’s also offer old-world charm found in the vintage buildings that have been refurbished and updated.
In the Greater Toronto area during the month of February, gains in both the detached and condo market were seen, compared with January of this year. As consumer confidence continues to rise and Spring approaches, we’re hoping for more inventory as we’ve been hit with ultra-low numbers of properties on the market. We’re already looking at a tight housing supply and going forward, buyers that might be holding off, could be faced with increased competition when they do finally return to the market. We’re expecting increased immigration and slower building starts that could build demand over the next few years.
