Need more nature in your life than you can find in Toronto? If so, condos for sale in Eglinton East are bound to catch your eye.
Once known as Knob Hill — a name that’s become less appealing as the years have gone by — Eglinton East is a commuter friendly neighbourhood in Scarborough. Residents have reasonable access to dining on Eglinton Ave E, with a variety of well known chains like McDonald’s, Dairy Queen, and Swiss Chalet.
There are several service based businesses in the neighbourhood — financial services, salons, and automotive repair — as well as a small selection of big box stores and specialized shops. Parents have schools in both the Catholic and public boards for their children, and there are a few large green spaces with sports facilities such as McCowan District Park.
The condo scene in Eglinton East is a mix of old and new — older high-rise towers and newer townhouses. If you’ve been condo hunting in downtown Toronto and settling into the idea of paying over $900 a square foot, you’re in for some sticker shock; condos for sale in Eglinton East can go for a third of that price, and floor plans are generally larger; properties like 15 Torrance Road Condos and McCowan Place Condos have massive floor plans.
