Move over Yorkville — well, not quite.
As real estate prices continue to rise in Toronto, condos for sale in commuter friendly neighbourhoods like Centennial Scarborough and Port Union have become much more desirable. While this area can’t offer the urban conveniences of downtown Toronto, it does provide excellent access to green spaces and plenty of natural scenery.
Residents have dining options sprinkled throughout the neighbourhood — unique restaurants such as Fratelli Village Pizzeria and well known chains like KFC. Nightlife is limited to a few local watering holes, and shopping is limited as well, with only specialized retail stores in the area. The majority of businesses are located around Kingston Road; small businesses for auto repair, financial services, and salons.
If your hunt for a new home has led you to Scarborough, you’ll find 3 buildings to choose from in Centennial Scarborough and Port Union — 2 townhome complexes and one modern loft residence. Regardless of which complex you choose, you wont get any flashy amenities, especially in townhome complexes like Centennial Hill Condos. Condos for sale in Port Union are generally much less expensive than those found in downtown Toronto, so you’ll get great bang for your buck.
Port Union condos for sale are an excellent choice for families — there are schools in the public and Catholic boards, playgrounds, walking trails, and Port Union Community Recreation Centre houses athletic facilities and offers youth programs. All complexes are located on or near bus routes, so getting around will be easy.
The only thing you’ll be using your walking shoes for in this neighbourhood is exercise, as daily errands will require a vehicle or public transit. Most of the neighbourhood has decent access to bus routes, though are a few gaps in service. For longer trips, Rouge Hill GO is just east of the neighbourhood, and drivers can reach the 401 in mere minutes.
