THE PERFECT NEIGHBOURHOOD
An established, historic neighbourhood filled with traditional Arts and Crafts homes, The Kingsway / Old Mill has been one of the city’s most prestigious addresses for almost a century.
Originally planned by lawyer Robert Home Smith as a utopian “garden city” community, the area was deliberately developed to feel like a woodland retreat – tasteful, traditional homes on winding streets offer a sense of seclusion, in a setting that’s central yet comfortably removed from the chaos of the city. That serene atmosphere remains to this day, making the neighbourhood an ideal place for a walk along the river, a morning run down quiet, leafy streets, or an afternoon coffee on a sunlit terrace.
EXCELLENT SHOPPING ABOUNDS
You’ve got two of Toronto’s best neighbourhood shopping streets nearby. Bloor West Village is a short walk east, and has everything you need, from excellent fruit markets and Eastern European delis to clothing boutiques, shoe stores and a wide selection of professional services. It’s the perfect place to grab a coffee and a pastry on a Saturday morning and people watch, or stock up on naturally raised meats and fresh, ripe fruit at one of the many busy produce shops.
Kingsway Village is a short walk west, and it offers an excellent selection of great restaurants, coffee shops, specialty food shops, clothing boutiques, spas and doctors, dentists & other professional services.
