Buying a condo in West Hill

If you favour peace and quiet and don’t mind commuting, condos for sale in West Hill should be at the top of your list. Nestled in Scarborough along the shores of Lake Ontario, West Hill is a neighbourhood with a sleepy, country feel. On winding residential streets with wide sidewalks, you’ll find bungalows and world war II homes, shrouded by tall trees.

The neighbourhood is practically surrounded by green spaces, and there are several expansive parks with walking trails and woodlands. As a family neighbourhood, there are schools in both the Catholic and private boards, and also the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus. Athletic facilities and sports fields are plentiful, ideal for parents who wish to raise their children with a more traditional outdoor lifestyle.

Kingston Road passes through the neighbourhood, and it's there you’ll find a collection of restaurants, big box stores, service based businesses, and grocery stores.

Condo Life in West Hill

West Hill is home to over a dozen condo buildings — townhouses, older high-rise towers, low-rise condos, and a few modern mid-rises. The biggest draw for West Hill condos for sale are the prices, which in many cases are half of what you’d pay in downtown Toronto. So, if you don’t mind the slower pace, condos for sale in West Hill will give you great bang for your buck.

Most developments are located near the intersection of Lawrence Ave W and Kingston Road, which places residents within walking distance of dining and retail options. Amenities are mostly in line with what you’ll get throughout the GTA, although buildings like Scarborough Wood Condos have pools.

Transportation

Let’s get this out of the way — to accomplish all your errands on foot in West Hill you’d need triathlon levels of endurance. Public transit doesn’t fare much better, with only a limited number of bus routes in the area. Drivers have the easiest commute by far, and can reach the 401 in a hurry via Kingston Road.
