Residences of High Park South in Toronto
High Park South neighbourhood
This part of High Park neighbourhood is conveniently wedged between the tranquility of High Park grounds and lively Roncesvalles Avenue with its many specialized shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Serviced by a bus route on Parkside Drive and streetcar line on Roncesvalles it has an easy access downtown, whether by public transport or by car.
Homes of High Park are shaded by towering trees, and a short walk takes the residents to one of the most beautiful Toronto parks. An ornate wrought iron gate provides the main entry from the east, at the west end of High Park Boulevard.
In the area between High Park Boulevard and Bloor residences tend to be large, on larger lots, and majority of them are detached, two and a half or three storey in height. But even the semi-detached houses are large. Mansions of High Part Boulevard are truly impressive. Many of them have been divided into units, but a number of extraordinarily elegant residences still exist, and some of these were beautifully restored. South part of the area has also smaller homes, many of them semi-detached.
A beautiful church on Sunnyside Avenue at the corner of Marmaduke has been converted into lofts. Some of these lofts are multi-level, with one of them having the church tower as part of its space - very interesting, with fantastic views over the rooftops and trees.
East-west running streets have one-way traffic, with only a few exceptions, one of them being High Park Boulevard. Recently renovated Public Library is located on Roncesvalles Avenue at the corner of Wright.
Some of the streets in the south portion of this neighbourhood have soil stability problems, and many of the homes there have settled, some considerably. Even these are popular with home buyers, being located in this lovely residential neighbourhood.
