If you’re yearning for the country but work in the GTA, condos for rent in West Hill could be the next best thing.
Almost entirely surrounded by green spaces — West Hill has natural scenery around every corner. Its beachfront location doesn’t garner the same attention as neighbourhoods like The Beaches, but residents enjoy scenic walking trails, sports fields, and playgrounds with lakeside views. And with schools, daycares, and youth centres within its borders, condos for rent in West Hill are great for families.
Kingston Rd runs through the neighbourhood and is lined with businesses — restaurants, cafes, specialized retail stores, car dealerships, and financial institutions. Morningside Crossing is a small shopping mall in the neighbourhood, providing residents with conveniently located stores for errands or essential purchases. As well, there’s industrial and commercial space in the south-east portion of the neighbourhood.
West Hill has over a dozen condo residences, most of which can be found near Lawrence Ave E or Kingston Rd. For those who are seeking a great deal, units in traditional high-rises like Morningside Estates Condos often rent for prices that are below that of downtown Toronto condos.
Families who are interested in condos for rent in West Hill have several townhouse complexes to choose from — and suites found here can have the square footage of a small house. Townhouses don’t come with amenities, and even condos in this neighbourhood have only modest extras.
West Hill won’t be setting the world ablaze with pedestrian traffic, and if you plan to run errands on foot here, you’d better have some great walking shoes. There are only a few bus routes servicing the neighbourhood, but residents do have Guildwood Station for trains.
Car owners have a great starting point for their commute, and can quickly reach the 401 via Kingston Rd.
