Victoria Village real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Victoria Village is exemplified by its relaxed environment. The greenery in this area is quite prominent as the tree canopy coverage for a large number of streets is reasonably good. There are around 10 parks nearby for residents to check out, such as Bermondsey Yard and North York Hydro Green Space, and they are very well-spread out, which results in them being very easy to access from many locations in the neighbourhood. This area is quiet overall, as noise from the streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - however some parts can be quite noisy, especially around one of the railway lines or Don Valley Parkway.
No matter the means of transportation, it is straightforward to get around in this part of the city. Victoria Village is transit friendly. For example, homeowners have access to a few bus lines, and the closest bus stop is generally very close. Physically active property owners will also be pleased with the quite walk-friendly nature of Victoria Village; many daily needs can be met on foot. It is challenging to travel by bike in this area as cyclists are faced with quite a few elevation changes, and the cycling network is rather poor.
In Victoria Village, around 45% of dwellings are large apartment buildings, while small apartment buildings and single detached homes make up most of the remaining housing stock. This part of Toronto is primarily composed of two bedroom and one bedroom homes. Renters occupy roughly 60% of the dwellings in Victoria Village and owners occupy the remainder. Around 45% of homes in this part of Toronto were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while most of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 2000s.
A supermarket is ordinarily accessible within a short walk from anywhere in this part of Toronto. In addition, those who appreciate dining in restaurants or cafes will have a fair number of options in this area. It is also easy to reach a number of clothing stores on foot. With respect to education, families will value that wherever their home is located in Victoria Village, primary schools and daycares are close by. In contrast, high schools are not very plentiful and accordingly tend to require a rather long walk to get to. Parents benefit from public and private elementary schools.
