THE TORONTO EAST AREAS
The neighbourhoods located in the Toronto East area of the GTA along the Lake each offer unique lifestyles and settings. Some of these areas are my personal roots (The Bluffs) and all of them are my professional roots. It’s always a pleasure being of help to folks wanting to buy and/or sell a home here!
|The Rouge is a neighbourhood in the northeastern area of Toronto, Ontario, within the former city of Scarborough. It is Toronto’s largest neighbourhood by surface area, however unlike other neighbourhoods, most of its area remains undeveloped due to the presence of Rouge Park.||West Hill is also a neighbourhood located in the eastern end of the city, in the former suburb of Scarborough. It is roughly bounded by Scarborough Golf Club Road and a branch of Highland Creek on the west, the CNR railway tracks and Lake Ontario on the south, and Highland Creek on the north-east. The name comes from its elevated position on the west side of Highland Creek, a deep glacial ravine.|
|The Scarborough Bluffs, also known as The Bluffs, are an escarpment in the Scarborough district of Toronto East forming much of the eastern portion of Toronto’s waterfront along the shoreline of Lake Ontario. At its highest point, the escarpment rises 90 metres (300 ft) above the coastline and spans a length of 15 kilometres (9.3 mi). It was first named in 1793.
The Bluffs have been described as a “geological wonder” and a unique feature in North America.
|The Beaches (also known as “The Beach”) is a neighbourhood so named because of its three beaches situated on Lake Ontario. It is located east of downtown within the “Old” City of Toronto. The approximate boundaries of the Upper Beach north of Kingston Road and the Lower Beach south of Kingston Road neighbourhoods are from Victoria Park Avenue on the east to Coxwell Avenue on the west, north to Gerard St. E. and south to Lake Ontario. The Beaches is part of the central-east district of Toronto.|
|Leslieville a neighbourhood in Toronto east of the Don River bounded by the Canadian National railway line and Gerrard Street to the north, Empire Avenue to the west, Eastern Avenue to south, and Coxwell Avenue to the east. This east-end of the neighbourhood forms part of the broader neighbourhood of South Riverdale.||Riverdale is a large neighbourhood enclosed by the Don River Valley to the west, the GO Train tracks and Greenwood Avenue to the east, Lake Shore Boulevard to the south, and Danforth Avenue on the north. But Riverdale is known to cover a wider area and include smaller communities within it — like Riverside, marketed as “Toronto’s food and culture hot spot.” Riverdale is considered the east side of the downtown core, and by locals, it’s frequently just called “The Danforth.”|
|Danforth Village is a neighbourhood located on the eastern part of Danforth Avenue in the old city of Toronto. It stretches from the eastern edge of Greektown by Greenwood Avenue to the boundary of Scarborough at Victoria Park Avenue. To the north of the neighbourhood is Old East York, once a separate municipality, but today closely integrated into the area. The southern border is the railway tracks, beyond which are Leslieville and the Upper Beaches.||East York is separated by the Don River from the former City of Toronto. Traditional East York is southeast of the river, and the neighbourhoods of Leaside, Bennington Heights and densely populated Thorncliffe Park are northwest of the river. The heart of East York is filled with middle-class and working-class homes, with extensive high-rise developments along peripheral major streets and in Crescent Town and Thorncliffe Park.|
