Investors looking for tear-downs or build-ups on large lots along with affluent families looking for a large, new build family home near one of Toronto’s best public schools – Glen Park Public School.
Lawrence Bathurst is not a traditional neighbourhood if you look at most Toronto maps – it’s technically part of both Glen Park in the west and Caribou Park in the east, with Bathurst as the dividing line – but for those interested in houses for sale in North York around this intersection, there are some differences in this pocket. And so it’s worth looking at this as an individual neighbourhood to research its unique draws and drawbacks.
Sharing many similarities with the larger Glen Park area, this is a culturally diverse community with large Italian and Jewish populations, great amenities, an excellent public school and great value real estate in comparison to the exclusive neighbourhoods further south like Forest Hill North. Not surprising, young families have been flocking here to get more property bang for their buck.
Where Lawrence Bathurst differs from its neighbours is in its proximity to the main arteries and shopping areas, giving parts of this area a more lively feel. If you’re a public transit user or like to walk to amenities, there are some great Lawrence Bathurst homes down quiet side streets that are just a short walk to the commercial district.
There are also more condominium and townhome options here along the main streets of both Lawrence and Bathurst, along with reasonably-priced options for renters.
