York Mills Condos
York Mills Neighbourhood
This neighbourhood is located in the southern part of North York, and it is commonly regarded as one of the most affluent sections of the entire GTA. Being one of the most posh regions in the city, it should be no surprise that homes here are priced well above Toronto’s average. It is surrounded by great transportation options as well, including the busiest highway in North America.
It’s unsurprising that the majority of the homes in this area are detached houses, which accounted for 72% of total homes sales last year. There are condos in the regions too as they accounted for 14% of sales, with condo townhouses rounding out the sales at 11%. The average home price in this neighbourhood was $2,931,389, which can be divided into an average price of $3,626,312 for a detached house, and an average price of $901,123 for a condo.
The area has got fantastic transit options, largely thanks to the 401 Ontario Expressway, which is the busiest highway in North America. This highway connects the entirety of Southern Ontario together, linking up all of the GTA in the process.
It is also close to the Don Valley Parkway, one of the most common gateways into Downtown Toronto.The DVP also reaches up to Markham, Vaughan, and Richmond Hill.
It’s also got its own subway station with York Mills Station. From here, riders can travel on Line 1, which takes you down to the heart of downtown, or up to North York and beyond to the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre.
You only have to take a short northward trip on Yonge to reach North York Centre. This isn’t just a major employment centre in the GTA, it’s also becoming a hip urban hub with some great restaurant and shopping choices. There are mainstays here like A Firkin Pub, McDonald’s and Pizza Pizza, but there are lesser known choices too like Union Social Eatery and Kinka Izakaya.
There’s another commercial district if you head east on York Mills Road. This is the location of York Mills Gardens, which is outfitted with stores that are ideal if you’re just picking up odds and ends. It’s got a Longo’s supermarket, a Shoppers Drug Mart, and an LCBO. It’s also got restaurants that range from McDonald’s for something quick, to The Keg for a nice sit down meal.
If these two shopping options weren’t enough, there’s also the Bayview Village Shopping Centre. This is the best place in the area to shop for clothes due to its wealth of different clothing stores. It has a wide variety of stores including a GAP, Banana Republic, and a Roots. This is also the location for the region’s Toronto Public Library.
This neighbourhood is also adjacent to North York’s IKEA. This famous Swedish furniture store is a major trendsetter, and they’re masters at helping you to get your home just right. There’s nothing out of reach when you live here.
Being one of the most affluent areas in the GTA, it makes sense that this neighbourhood is literally encircled by golf courses. The lush green courses are able to be sustained by the rich Don River, which is striped throughout the region. The courses are Don Valley Golf Course in the northwest, the Donalda Club in the north east, and Rosedale Golf Club in the southwest. Better start working on that swing!
Golf courses aren’t the only green spaces in the area, there’s also plenty of parks! The York Mills Park has a river running through it, and it’s also equipped with trails and five outdoor tennis courts.
It’s clear to see why this is one of the most prestigious neighbourhoods in the city. It is outfitted with amazing local amenities that include everything from shopping, to dining and beyond. The area’s landscape is beautiful as the Don River feeds into the surroundings, making sure everything is lush and green. There are great transit option here too whether you’re driving or taking public transit. There’s no doubt about it, this is one of the GTA’s best places to live, so what are you waiting for?
