Queen's Drive is located just north of Lawrence in the heart of picturesque Old Weston Village. The home is steps from the GO Train, with easy access to major arteries & bus routes on Lawrence Avenue West, Weston Road and Jane Street. This friendly, historic neighbourhood established in the 1790's, is home to many long time residents, creating a good sense of community highlighted by the local farmers' market, annual street sale and party and local Santa Claus parade. The influx of young families wishing to raise their children in a small town-like setting has made way for many good childcare options and schools.

Enjoy shopping along Weston Road, which brims with small shops, restaurants and convenience foods, and national chain retailers. Big box shopping, banking and professional services abound in the Crossroads Centre also on Weston Road. Motorists have direct access to highways 400 & 401 via Weston Rd and Jane St, both of which also connect commuters to major roadways such as Eglinton which leads to downtown Toronto. The airport is conveniently close.

For those who love the great outdoors, the area provides wonderful opportunities for hiking, biking, and blading along the beautiful Humber River, which leads south all the way to the Martin Goodman Trail on the waterfront. Parents and pet lovers will delight in the safe, abundant recreation opportunities afforded by the many parks in the area, like the nearby Cruickshank Park and Lions Park just five minutes walk from the house. Lions Park has four tennis courts, two baseball diamonds and two swimming pools and a playground for the ultimate in child's play, as well as the Weston Lions Recreation Arena offering ice rentals and banquet hall facilities. The nearby Weston Golf & Country Club also serves this well established community.
