Widely referred to as Humber Valley Village, this affluent Etobicoke neighbourhood is home to large detached houses on winding residential streets. As a predominantly residential area, Edenbridge and Humber Valley is very popular with families and established professionals who want a little more space than found in downtown Toronto, but also a location that’s not so far removed from urban centres.
When driving down residential streets you’ll find a mix of bungalows on medium sized lots, and large 2-storey homes that border on being considered estates — Humber Valley Village condos are a bit of a departure in that regard, as they are generally quite affordable.
The area has many green spaces, with mature trees, playgrounds, and walking paths. Parents have several schools to choose from in the neighbourhood and surrounding area, and also some daycares as well. Residents have their pick of golf courses; St. George's Golf and Country Club, Lambton Golf & Country Club, and Scarlett Woods Golf Course. Whether you’re an avid golfer or a player who uses the word “mulligan” on every hole, you’re bound to feel exclusive on these pristine greens.
Business isn’t bustling in this neighbourhood, but there are some convenient restaurants and retail spaces to be found on Dundas and Royal York Road; Humbertown Shopping Centre houses a variety of boutiques and outlets, plus a grocery store, bakeries and cafes. There are more restaurants on Dundas and several service based businesses — salons, cleaners, and financial services.
Humber Valley Village condos are surprisingly affordable, and value is off the charts — The Kingsway Regent Condos for example, has floor plans that range from 1400 square feet to over 3300, and the price per square foot is half of what you’d pay for a downtown condo. In fact, it’s entirely possible to get a 2000 square foot condo here for the price of an 800 square foot condo in downtown Toronto. Those who want something more modern, could check out Perspective Condominiums.
Amenities are fairly competitive for Humber Valley Village condos — buyers can count on the usual extras. With most buildings being clustered around the southern border of the neighbourhood, you can expect to have some convenient dining and shopping options on Dundas St W.
Humber Valley Village condos in the east end of the neighbourhood come with the bonus of scenic views, but regardless of where you are located, you can count on plenty of natural scenery.
Humber Valley Village condos will feel like a let down for those who love to run errands on foot, as this neighbourhood has a walk score of 49 — if you got that on a test in school, you probably wouldn’t bring it home to mom.
While the community gets a failing grade for pedestrians, it does much better on public transit; there are bus stops on all major roads, and routes which criss-cross the neighbourhood. And for those needing subway service, Royal York Station is just a few minutes south of the neighbourhood.
Drivers have it easy here — with the 401 to the north, 427 to the west, and Gardiner Expressway to the south, you shouldn’t need to spend much time in city traffic.
