ESTABLISHED AND PRESTIGIOUS
For clients looking for the appeal of an older, well established and prestige neighbourhood, Lawrence Park is a good place consider. The area has a reputation in the city that means a lot to the professionals who live here. And there is no denying a certain level of “breaking factor” to living here.
The homes in the area are mainly older, with long, large lots that lead to front yard appeal and backyard activities. As well, it is not uncommon to see a mix of rebuilds and new builds between more stately and established neighbours.
As with other neighbourhoods in the north Toronto area, the schools here (both public and private) enjoy strong reputations – making this very much a kid-friendly environment. It’s not uncommon to be slowed down by games of street hockey when driving through its streets.
As well, the neighbourhood’s access to the city is excellent. The TTC subway offers a quick connection to the downtown core, or uptown to the city’s other urban centre at Yonge and Eglinton. Access to shopping on Yonge Street, the village on Avenue Road and the shops and restaurants of Mount Pleasant all add up to impressive array of neighbourhood attractions. The people that live here never find themselves lacking a place to eat, a place to shop or a place to enjoy a cup of local coffee. In Lawrence Park, all of that is within short walking distance of your front door.
