Beginning as Moffat’s Corner, this neighbourhood functioned as its own standalone community until 1873 when it became part of Scarborough. In modern day, this neighbourhood is a picture of suburban living — with tree shrouded residential streets lined with world war II homes and bungalows, and a large cluster of big box stores in the centre of the neighbourhood.
While technically one neighbourhood, Clairlea and Golden Mile are 2 distinct areas — Clairlea is more residential and Golden Mile is predominantly commercial, aside from condo buildings which are found in the area. The neighbourhood is quite appealing to families, with multiple schools close-by, as well as green spaces and walking trails along Massey creek to the south.
Golden Mile condos for sale aren’t nearly as expensive as they sound, and are ideal for growing families.
Clairlea and Golden Mile are home to 10 condo buildings, mostly made up of modern townhouse complexes. The price per square foot of condos for sale in Golden Mile, is well below that of units found in downtown Toronto — so if you’re looking for a 3 bedroom, you’ll save a lot of money in this neighbourhood.
Because most complexes are townhouses, amenities are often modest — for buyers who want all the flashy extras, Wilshire on the Green Condos provides the usual amenities: Gym, party room, media room, etc.
While not the most pedestrian friendly neighbourhood, residents can run some daily errands on foot. Public transit users will find it easy to get around, because condos for sale in Clairlea and Golden Mile are found directly on bus routes, many of which connect to Warden Station - Eastbound Platform for subway service. Car owners can reach the nearest highway in a hurry, by heading west on Eglinton to the Don Valley Parkway.
