Sunnylea

 

South of the Kingsway lies the cozy little community of Sunnylea. Bloor St. West becomes the dividing line for two very different neighbourhoods. Sunnylea has a cottagey feel to it with homes surrounded by mature trees, lush gardens and green space tucked away all over. Residents can stroll through the neighbourhoods and eventually end up in the Kingsway Village for a selection of coffee shops, restaurants, pubs, fruits and vegetable markets and other popular local amenities such as the Crooked Cue, the Running Room and the Kingsway Theatre. Spend one day in Sunnylea and you’ll understand why once people move in, they never seem to move out.

Houses in Sunnylea

Houses in Sunnylea are quite the mixture. There are bungalows, back splits. Side splits, two storey, one and a half storey and Tudor homes. Most of the homes were built between the 1940’s and 1950’s although some of the original homes date back to the early 1900’s and even the late 1800’s.
Houses in Sunnylea are detached with private driveways and with parks, rivers, and other green space dotting the real estate landscape in Sunnylea, many homes can be found with a backyard that overlooks some form of nature.
Recent condo developments have begun to expand the residential base of Sunnylea but the area still attracts predominantly families looking for more real estate elbow room.
