What are the best neighborhoods in Toronto for buying a detached house

I think your best bets would be in the three old large boroughs of the City of Toronto – Scarborough, North York and Etobicoke.You probably want a house built between 1950 and 1970.During that period of time, sewer infrastructure was just slowly being built so a lot of houses still had septic systems.

That meant big lots – usually about 6,000 square feet.Before 1950, cars still weren’t common and houses were generally built with only small alleyways between them.After 1970s, growing sewer systems allowed sub-divisions to be built with houses much closer together.

So, we’re looking at places like Don Mills, Lawrence Avenue out to about Manse, Highland Creek, Agincourt, Port Union, Willowdale, Newtonbrook, Downsview, Scarborough Junction, Scarborough Village and Sunnylea.

The best neighbourhoods are also the most expensive ones, for that very reason.Leaside, Moore Park, Bennington Heights, South Eglinton, Bayview Village, Rosedale, Forest Hill, The Annex, Guildwood, Ledbury Park are just some of the fabulous neighbourhoods that would be great to live in, if you could afford to buy there.
