Bloor West Village NEIGHBOURHOOD GUIDE
3 Homes for sale | 0 Homes for rent
Bloor West Village homes for sale were typically built in the late 19th century or within the first quarter of the 20th century and tend to be Edwardian or Tudor in style. There’s a certain heft to Bloor West Village properties–they feel sturdy and well-built but with an elegance in detail that’s hard to find at this price point in other parts of the city. They're usually good-sized, detached brick houses with deep front porches.
Lots here tend to be smaller than other Toronto neighbourhoods but this is made up for by the charm of its turn-of-the-century homes with character details such as real wood trim work, original hardwood floors and stunning oak staircases. These are some of the best value homes for sale in the City for the size and character that you're getting.
In terms of entry-level condominiums, buyers will find more options for condos and lofts west of here in High Park and Roncesvalles Village but there is one new condo development in the works for Bloor West Village at 2265 Bloor St W. by Durie St.
Families looking for houses for sale in Toronto in an area with a small village feel.

Known as a "small village within a big city", Bloor West Village was originally settled by Eastern European immigrants, whose influence is still strong today. It has become one of the best all-around family neighbourhoods in Toronto due to its affordable single-family Toronto homes for sale, good schools and proximity to shops, services and the TTC.
Why We Love Bloor West Village
Their BIA is BIG
The Bloor West Village Business Improvement Area is the oldest BIA in Canada. As the very first BIA, its members take pride in leading by example. It has grown to be one of the most active BIA’s in Toronto, working hard to improve the life of local residents and create a strong sense of community.
There are over 400 merchants in the area who work with the Bloor West Village BIA to organize many events throughout the year including the Halloween Festival, Cavalcade of Lights, Ukrainian Festival, kids’ programming, sidewalk sales and more.
Convenience is King
Bloor West has a great mix of big chain stores and smaller, independent retailers as well as a plethora of restaurants, cafes, bakeries, delis, butchers and all things food related. Everything you want is within walking distance and many of the restaurants are very affordable for families who like to dine out regularly.
There’s a strong eastern European influence in Bloor West Village, in particular a very active and civic-minded Ukrainian community, which is evidenced in the shops and restaurants along the Bloor commercial strip. This is the place to go for good varenyky (pierogis) and holubtsi (cabbage rolls), especially at the annual Ukrainian Festival in mid-September – the largest of its kind in Canada.
You Can Escape the City
Bloor West Village is conveniently located at the western edge of Toronto for a short drive to popular Etobicoke destinations such as The Queensway.
It’s also close to both High Park and the Humber Valley Ravine. All that green space is within walking distance so that Bloor West Village residents can enjoy the nature trails, biking trails and sporting fields that their neighbours benefit from, along with the annual events that High Park is famous for like Dream in High Park by the Canadian Stage Company and the Harvest Festival held there each fall.
