About the Neighbourhood:

Sunnylea/Sunnylea Avenue - Grenview Boulevard
Sunnylea/Sunnylea Avenue - Grenview Boulevard

Sunnylea is a desirable Etobicoke community especially popular among young families with small children. The history of the Sunnylea neighbourhood begins in 1803, when Alexander Thompson purchased 200 acres of land in the area. His son Archibald's country Georgian farmhouse near Royal York Road and Bloor Street West, "Spring Bank Cottage, is still standing today at 7 Meadowcrest Road.

The Thompson property was renowned for its fruit orchards. In the latter part of the 1800's families flocked to Sunnylea to cultivate thriving market gardens filled with fruits and vegetables. A handful of these old Sunnylea farmhouses are still standing both on Prince Edward Drive and on Islington Avenue.

Sunnylea's old farms were subdivided in the 1930's and 40's, when the present day neighbourhood was developed. The bungalows, split-level, storey-and- a-half, and two-storey houses were built mostly in the 1940's and 1950's. These detached homes include a wide frontage and a private drive. The Tudor style houses closer to Bloor Street are the older houses in this neighbourhood, often featuring handsome Riverstone exteriors, bay windows, stone chimneys, wrought iron railings and decorative front porches.

Six schools serve the area, including the 3 public schools: Norseman, Park Lawn, and Sunnylea; 2 public high schools – Etobicoke C.I., and Etobicoke School of the Arts, and the separate school Sainte-Margueritte-d'Youville.

Sunnylea residents have been progressive in forming the Kingsway Sunnylea Residents Association. This association has been successful in getting the city to pass site specific zoning by-laws designed to protect the residential character of this neighbourhood.

Sunnylea residents enjoy convenient access to the Kingsway Village shopping district on Bloor Street West. This well-planned retail corridor has a festive, pedestrian friendly atmosphere and features comfortable park benches, evergreen trees, and cast iron street lamps. Even the garbage bins are wrapped in ornate cast-iron frames. There is plenty of meter parking along Bloor Street and many of the side streets which make it easy to explore this vibrant shopping district.

One comment on “Sunnylea, Etobicoke Real Estate

  1. My husband and I are looking to buy a house exactly like the one that you sold at 163 Prince Edward Drive. We are interested in a house with light, street appeal and a nice backyard .
    We would like to make an appointment to visit you. We are presently getting our home ready to be put on the market on Ellis Avenue.
    Thank you,
    Louise Levett
