Roncy

Average Price: $804,084

Nestled between Roncesvalles and Lansdown Avenues, south of Dundas West and Howard Park, is the family-friendly neighbourhood with European flare—Roncesvalles Village. “Roncy”, as the neighbourhood is fondly called by the locals, offers buyers stunning turn-of-the-century homes with picturesque porches in the front and garages out back, set along mature tree-lined streets. The houses are primarily semi-detached and detached homes in the charming Victorian and Edwardian styles. The average price tag on single family home runs around $800,000 with the modern condo priced just below $500,000. The current residents are a blend of European immigrants with Polish and Eastern European roots, and young Canadian families looking for a safe neighbourhood with great proximity to the city centre.

Parents of school age children can appreciate the wide range of public and catholic school options, along with private institution Westminster Classical Christian Academy located on Hewitt right in the neighbourhood.  A bonus feature to living here is the short walk that takes residents to High Park where locals can enjoy fishing in Grenadier Pond, picnics throughout the grounds, sports along the fields and tennis courts, and play among the wading pool and playground. Additional community facilities include the parks of Sorauren and Charles G. Williams on Wabash, the Keele Community Centre on Glenlake Avenue (complete with indoor pool), and the public library on Roncesvalles featuring programming for children and adults alike.

Local residents don’t have to travel far for groceries, baked goods, or fresh food as Roncy has a number of street level shops, delis, bakeries, and restaurants available within walking distance. The Mercantile is a specialty food and gift shop featuring gourmet jams, oils, and more, while Lit Espresso Bar keeps the locals caffeinated and the Wi-Fi free for community use! Chocoholics can indulge their sweet tooth at Chocolateria, while fashionistas can check out Frock or Imelda Shoes!

While this neighbourhood is pedestrian and cyclist friendly, it is also well-serviced by streetcars along Queen, Dundas and Roncesvalles with connection along the Yonge-University-Spadina and Bloor-Danforth lines. The bus service on Lansdowne takes commuters to the Lansdowne station, and Go Train service is easily accessible from the Crossways. Motorists are just minutes away from the Queensway and Gardiner Expressway to make transit in and out of the city a breeze.
