Average Price: $1,301,554
Situated north of Bloor, south of Dupont, and sandwiched east-west between Bathurst and Avenue road comes the traditional Toronto neighbourhood known as the Annex. Home to students and faculty of the University of Toronto along with other affluent members of the city, the annex offers residents a beautiful and mature tree-lined stretch with Victorian and Edwardian style homes with an average price tag of about $1,301,554.
The Annex actually has its own architectural design, coined as the Annex Style house which took elements of the American Richardson Romanesque and British Queen Anne style and combined them to result in large Romanesque arches and Queen Anne turrets, rich in colour and culture, with an overall appeal to the masses. These homes are often furnished exteriorly in brick and sandstone and are coveted by those who desire style, comfort, and proximity to campus and the convenience of the city. It is not uncommon to see a blend of residents here in the annex, from young families to students, the business class, artists and more!
Enjoy lush green spaces including Christie Pits which offers outdoor picnic venues, sports fields, an outdoor pool, splash pad, and come winter, tobogganing and an outdoor ice rink. For a quieter stay, Queen’s Park filled with picnic benches and an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Athletes will find solace in U of T’s rec centre, and the proximity of RCYC (the most prestigious sailing club in the city) and the courts at Sir Winston Churchill Park Tennis Club.
With countless libraries, schools, and entertainment hot spots in the area, families will be happy to call the Annex home.
Locals and visitors to the area must be sure to check out the yearly festivals, landmarks like Casa Loma, Spadina House, and the ROM and—take in some shopping along in the designer shops on Bloor, the eclectic Mirvish Village, take in show at one of the many local theatres and stop to eat just about anywhere!
Commuters will find this area appealing as it offers multiple TTC station including Bathurst, Dupont, St. George and Spadina along with many bus routes and streetcars lines that make intercity travel a breeze.Back to Hoods
