Home sales in High Park
High Park neighbourhood consists of two parts: the area north of Bloor Street, which was once part of West Toronto Junction, was incorporated into the City of Toronto in 1909. The area south of Bloor Street belonged to the first surveyor of Toronto, John Howard, who has named it High Park because of the magnificent views of Lake Ontario. John Howard donated his estate to the City of Toronto in 1873. His former residence, Colborne Lodge, situated in the park, became a museum.
The part of High Park neighbourhood between High Park Avenue and Runnymede, north of Bloor and south of Annette, is one of only few areas in older Toronto without the typical, regular street grid. Hilly terrain, winding streets and towering trees provide beautiful setting for its homes.
Majority of High Park homes were built during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Many of these homes have been divided into multiple-family residences. Excellent neighbourhoods schools, proximity to great shopping, public transportation, beautiful park and easy access to Gardiner Expressway contribute to High Park popularity.
Besides single family residences and multi-family dwellings, High Park is home to several condominium buildings and rental apartments. North of Bloor, the older condo buildings are located on Quebec Avenue and on the corner of Keele and Bloor. There is a co-operative building at 2000 Bloor. Recently built 70 High Park Avenue is a very attractive condominium building with high quality finishes. A small loft building is located at 1 St. Johns, and another small loft conversion was recently completed at 235 Medland Street. A beautiful century church on the corner of Annette and Medland is being converted into 38 lofts, and new condos have been built at 20 Gothic Avenue. A heritage residence was converted to several units at 32 Gothic, and a rental property at 199 - 201 High Park Avenue has been converted to four co-ownership apartments. In High Park south of Bloor there is one condo loft conversion in an old church building on Sunnyside.
