Why We Love It
Roncesvalles feels like a small town in the big city. The main retail and dining strip along Roncesvalles Avenue has a trendy, European feel. Roncesvalles real estate is full of turn-of-the-century Edwardian and Victorian houses, mostly semi-detached and row homes. There are many loft options in the area, including the Baseball Factory Lofts, Feather Factory Lofts, and Robert Watson Lofts.
One thing we love about Roncesvalles is its proximity to some of the city’s best parks. High Park’s petting zoo, gardens, and playgrounds are just minutes away, as are Sorauren Park’s farmers’ markets.
The annual Roncesvalles Polish Festival and fall Pumpkin Day Parade are two of the most popular community events. It has great biking and walking trails and many activities for kids and families including hockey, yoga, and outdoor movie nights.
For those wanting to be close to the TTC and Go Transit, Roncesvalles real estate is a sensible choice. Motorists are a 15-minute drive to downtown and commuters can either take the bus to the Bloor-Danforth subway or the Queen streetcar to move across the city.
This neighbourhood’s charm, shops, restaurants and convenient location attract a variety of residents. Families, young professionals and couples make Roncesvalles real estate their choice.
