A little bit about a Swansea neighborhood in the west end of Toronto.
Thursday Oct 05th, 2023
If you're not sure which neighborhood in Toronto to settle in, I think this post will be interesting to you.
Swansea is a neighborhood in Toronto that borders a pond, river, and lake.
This quiet neighborhood with elite houses is situated west of High Park, wrapping around the
Grenadier Pond. The more high-end residences are located in the Brule Gardens enclave in the
northwest pocket of Swansea.
Rennie Park is a perfect spot for a nice stroll or a picnic. Connected to it is Catfish Pond with a nice
trail alongside the stream connected to it. Surrounded by trees, you can hardly see evidence of the
buildings around you. Rennie Park also houses a skating rink and hockey rink where you can go out
and have fun in the winter months.
If you like to indulge in more fine foods, then make sure to stop by Cheese Boutique. It's more than just
a grocery store; Cheese Boutique is home to a wide selection of cheeses and other deluxe food
products. Their selection ranges from cheddar cheese to more exotic and unique cheeses, which are
very hard to find elsewhere! But they do not carry only cheese; they have an excellent selection of
other things. You can find handmade crackers, some wines, and even truffle oil to raise the level of
your culinary creations.
As a real estate agent, it is essential to inform you that this area is steps away from a TTC subway
station, about a 15-minute drive to the city's center, and directly connected to High Park. Humber River
is located on the west side of this neighborhood, with Lake Ontario situated to the south, where you can
go for a nice jog alongside the lake shore. Bloor West Village is directly to the north, hosting a plethora
of shops, cafes, and restaurants.
The median price for a detached house in this area is $2,300,000
The median price for a one-bedroom apartment is $600,000
