Looking for a Toronto luxury home in the West end?
The Kingsway is an upscale residential neighbourhood with a green and tranquil feel. It is located just east of the Humber River parklands, with Bloor St W. to the south, Dundas St .W to the north and Montgomery Road to the West.Traditional stately homes are set back on sizeable leafy lots, the winding streets have no sidewalks and are shaded by majestic oaks & maple trees. The area truly feels like a rural English village-yet it is within the city! Schools, parkland, Kingsway shopping, churches & the subway system are all within walking distance. The Kingsway neighbourhood was originally developed by Robert Home Smith - with the majority of the development being completed between 1924 and 1947. The completion of the Bloor Street bridge over the Humber River in 1924 was a large factor in the success of the developing neighbourhood -at that time! Home Smith loved everything English and his lofty ideal was to establish an English style garden city of the highest quality with homes in “Kingsway Park” to resemble English country residences in the 19th century British style.
