With a premium location in the popular Bloor West Village, this home was built in the early 1920's and offers great character. The village was first populated by Eastern European immigrants who were responsible for creating one of the first Business Improvement Areas in the country. Evidence of their work is visible in today's extensive collection of shops along Bloor Street West. Thanks to its numerous schools and parks, this community is currently popular with young families and couples looking to put down some roots.

Transportation access is a highlight – Jane Subway station along the Bloor/Danforth line is within walking distance or only minutes in the winter on the Jane bus! The Annette bus also connects to the Dupont station on the Spadina line. For those travelling by car, the Gardiner and Lakeshore Blvd. are only ten minutes away and the city core can be reached in 15 minutes!

In addition to exceptional shopping and dining opportunities along Bloor, residents have especially good access to City park space. There are parketttes for children with jungle jim's and little leagues, as well the Humber Valley offers lovely paths for walking and blading. High Park, the city's largest green space, is a short bike ride away. In addition to trails and tennis, High Park has a large outdoor pool, café open year round and a great organic market.
