Toronto homes in Roncesvalles Village are typically character-filled, detached Victorians and Edwardians or larger-than-average semi-detached properties that are spacious enough to feel like detached homes. These are some of the most coveted west-end Toronto houses for sale south of Bloor. There are also row-houses to be found which tend to be a little more budget-friendly.
Roncesvalles homes for sale tend to have large, welcoming front porches and the extra-wide semi’s feel sturdy and more stately than semi-detached houses in most west-end neighbourhoods. Many have garage parking accessed through back laneways.
Homes here tend to sell quickly and typically get asking price or higher. There are rarely deals to be found, even with original-condition homes, due to the popularity of this neighbourhood. However, the value for money is actually quite high in Roncesvalles considering the size and character of the property that you're getting.
There are also a number of fantastic Toronto condos and lofts in Roncesvalles including the Roncesvalles Lofts, a five storey boutique building in the heart of the neighbourhood, the Robert Watson Lofts, a well-designed conversion of a 19th century candy factory, the Sourauren Lofts, which have seen above average value appreciations in recent years, and Howard Park, a new condo development with two phases.
Why We Love Roncesvalles Village
Their Community Events Rock
From the annual Polish Festival to Roncy Rocks!, an annual music and art festival, the Roncesvalles BIA works with the community to schedule a number of engaging public events throughout the year.
These festivals are so popular they attract visitors from around the city and are a great way for locals to get to know local business owners.
Sorauren Park is a favourite for dog-owners with its off-leash park, and families with its children’s soccer and baseball programs and natural ice-rink.
One of the more popular community events held here each year is the Pumpkin Parade held after Halloween. Local residents bring their carved jack-o-lanterns to the park to add to the display of over a thousand for the whole neighbourhood to enjoy. There’s also a great Farmer’s Market in the park each Monday in the summer and fall.
It’s Walkable and Talkable
Heralded by the New York Times as one of Toronto’s “most engaging strolls,” Roncesvalles feels more like a small town than a big city.
Its host of indie book and record stores, eccentric cafés and boutique shopping along Roncesvalles set this area apart from the chain-laden commercial districts of many other Toronto neighbourhoods. The best part is that the main strip is fairly condensed that you can walk from one end to the other and back.
You’ll find that locals tend to leave their cars at home when not commuting and enjoy this picturesque neighbourhood by foot.
