Located in the east end of Toronto (actually the old city of Toronto), Danforth Village has become a recent hot spot for young professionals, many of whom are noted artists. It would not be surprising if your neighbour was a member of the Toronto Symphony, Canadian Opera, or film and television performers; a far cry from the blue collar families that once proliferated in this neighbourhood. Original homes were built around 1920-1930, with Danforth Avenue being the dividing line between styles of homes. North you’ll find the streets lined with semi-detached houses with distinctive front porches., and South the homes range in size and style from Victorian semi-detached to bungalows and newer townhouses. Well known for it’s authentic Greek restaurants, fresh fruit and vegetable markets and a full range of shops and services. The relative affordability of the houses in Danforth Village, together with the convenience of the Bloor-Danforth subway line make this neighbourhood an excellent choice for first time home buyers.
