Kingsway South real estate guide & listings for sale
Kingsway South offers a relaxed atmosphere and will appeal to those who enjoy spending time outdoors. This part of Toronto features a very large amount of greenery as there are many tree-lined streets. Access to green spaces, such as Home Smith Park and King's Mill Park, is very easy from most locations within the neighbourhood since there are a few of them close by for residents to relax in. Most areas in this neighbourhood are reasonably quiet, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several louder sections, especially closer to the railway line.
This area offers property owners several alternative means of transportation. The public transit system in this part of Toronto is very convenient. It is convenient to come across a nearby rapid transit station, such as Royal York Station and Old Mill Station on the Bloor - Danforth Line, from the bulk of homes in the neighbourhood. The neighbourhood is connected by about 10 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far away from most residences. Kingsway South will also draw active house buyers as it is suitable for those who travel by foot; meeting daily needs is convenient on foot. Even though this part of Toronto is home to a reasonably good cycling infrastructure, the bike is a somewhat poor means of transportation in this neighbourhood because bicycling is rendered difficult by the typically steep area.
Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing about two thirds of dwellings in Kingsway South, and the remaining houses are mainly large apartment buildings. This part of Toronto is primarily composed of three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy about 80% of the properties in Kingsway South and 20% are rented. Most housing in this part of the city was built pre-1960, during its biggest building boom.
House buyers in this area will be pleased to learn that a general and a specialty grocery store is always only a rather short walk away. Additionally, there are a fair number of options for those who appreciate nearby restaurants and cafes. A decent choice of clothing stores can also be found within a reasonably short walking distance. In terms of education, parents and their children will find that no matter where their home is located in this part of Toronto, schools and daycares are nearby.
