Affluent young families looking for houses for sale in Toronto in a well-appointed neighbourhood with a strong French immersion program for their kids.
Allenby is a small, tree-lined family community in Uptown Toronto, named one of Toronto’s prime real-estate pockets by the Globe and Mail in 2013. Allenby is an all-around good family neighbourhood with an excellent French immersion public school and large single-family Toronto homes for sale. It doesn’t get the buzz that some other Toronto neighbourhoods enjoy but it’s just as family-friendly and well-appointed as trendy areas like Leaside.
Why We Love Allenby
Vive le Français
Allenby Junior Public School is consistently highly rated by the Fraser Institute and its French immersion program is considered amongst the best in the city.
Many parents move to Allenby specifically because of this school’s reputation. In fact, the neighbourhood itself was originally built because of the school and you still get that sense today. Some people still refer to the whole neighbourhood as Allenby School.
Family Activities are all a Short Drive or Stroll Away
Because of the compact nature of Allenby, residents enjoy many of the recreational hotspots of neighbouring communities. The Belt Line Trail popular with walkers, joggers and cyclists is located just south off Allenby, off of Chaplin Estates. Eglinton Park is also a favourite of families with its baseball diamond and wading pool.
Allenby is also minutes away from one of the best recreation complexes in the city–North Toronto Memorial Community Recreation Centre on Eglinton between Yonge and Avenue. The complex includes both an indoor and outdoor pool, gym, ice rinks, tennis courts, a walking track and more. The Centre also has tons of kids’ activities throughout the year including sports, art programs and camps.
