Living on Toronto’s Very Desirable Riverdale Avenue
One of downtown Toronto’s most coveted neighbourhoods is the thriving family-friendly Riverdale. Bordered by Danforth Avenue to the north and Jones Avenue to the east, this wonderful residential neighbourhood is bursting with character, history and exploding real estate prices.
A large majority of house buyers in Toronto, whether first-time-buyers or seasoned pros, are urgently trying to find their dream home in this outstanding area of Toronto. This is not a neighbourhood for temporary homeowners or “flippers”. Folks who move to Riverdale are usually planning to stay for a long while. Many couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
Being within walking distance to Toronto’s city core and having very convenient access to wonderful parks, schools, restaurants, amenities, public transportation and major traffic routes are just a few of the perks of living in Riverdale.
Full of Victorian and Edwardian style homes that were built in the 1800s, Riverdale was once home to Toronto’s working class as many of the larger homes were used as boarding houses. In the 1850s the Grand Trunk Railway brought many opportunities to the area and the Prince Edward Viaduct, built in 1918, brought even further potential and change.
Now, Riverdale and South Riverdale have become a very popular choice in the burgeoning world of Toronto real estate. It’s home to many young professionals at various stages of careers and raising a family. And it’s where many clients of The Weir Team currently call home.
Named after the neighbourhood, the lucky residents of the well-heeled Riverdale Avenue are enjoying selling prices for houses topping $2 million in some cases. With real estate values rising so quickly and so high, it’s not often that real estate buyers in Toronto get a chance to dream at owning a home on this street. But The Weir Team’s latest listing may be the perfect fit for many buyers who are looking to buy an outstanding, move-in ready house in Riverdale.
Our latest listing at 109 Riverdale Avenue is one house that’s not to be missed. Impeccably updated with high-end finishes and timelessly stylish touches throughout, this home has it all. Traces of architectural history along with the modern delights of today, 109 Riverdale Avenue sets a high standard on this historic street.
An enviable address for sure, including a super deep and lushly landscaped 137 foot lot, this renovated home boasts a modern, open concept living/dining area plus an oversized eat-in kitchen that will be the heart of the house for many years to come. Plus 2 full bathrooms (beautifully renovated!), a dream laundry room and the leafy front and back yards are just a few of the endless upgrades and selling features of this home.
The Weir Team is thrilled to offer you high-resolution photography, floor plans and a virtual tour of this stellar property. Complete details are always on our website.
