Comfortable, progressive, and forward-thinking... wouldn't you love these words to describe your neighbourhood? Can you imagine embracing that 'village-within-a-city' feel, where you can genuinely engage your neighbours and feel invested in your community's well-being? This is the kind of elevated pedestrian lifestyle that exists in the family-friendly Danforth neighbourhood, where you're surrounded by life-improving amenities like parks, schools, and public transport!
Welcome to 79 Eaton Avenue!
Located in East York - which runs north from The Danforth east of Broadview to Victoria Park Avenue - has a deep connection to its history. First established in the 1920s, it was incorporated as a borough in 1967, amalgamating the former East York Township and Leaside. Today, the residents are mixed, with seniors comprising some of the original residents and - over the past 15 years - the arrival of young families drawn by the affordability and easy access to downtown Toronto. Given the extended time span over which much of the construction happened in East York, the housing stock is varied, made up mostly of two-storey detached and semi-detached homes, as well as numerous bungalows. In the 1960s through 1990s, the area has seen the arrival of mid and high-rise buildings and, more recently, an emerging trend which signal a new life cycle for this neighbourhood. Increasingly, East York is seeing the reconstruction of the original bungalows being topped up and expanded into larger single family homes, along with a movement to tear down the original obsolete small bungalows for newly constructed luxury executive custom homes. Unfortunately, this has strained the availability of rental housing stock.
A host of amenities lies just steps away on The Danforth, waiting to serve you and yours! Boutique shops, cafes, and purveyors of fresh produce dot the streets in full support of a pedestrian lifestyle. There is colour and conversation on every corner. Beyond several nearby grocers, there's a liquor store, Shoppers Drug Mart, and, of course, the organic Carrot Common! Plus with its origins as a Greek immigrant neighbourhood, there are plenty of amazing culinary destinations with an inspiring array of offerings. We love savoring brunch at Allen's On The Danforth or biting into perfectly cooked eggs at Mihali's Place. And when we need a java fix? Broadview Espresso hits the spot. Auto free? There's a Zip Car and AutoShare on Broadview just south of The Danforth, and the Chester and Pape subway stations are just steps away, offering easy public transport. Don't miss the cute parkettes or vast green spaces like Withrow and Riverdale Parks; they offer respite, relaxation, and and endless opportunities for outdoor recreation. For those with school-aged children, Eaton Avenue is equidistant between top-notch Jackman Avenue Junior Public School serving JK to Grade 6 and Wilkinson Junior Public School.
