Swansea NEIGHBOURHOOD GUIDE
43 Homes for sale | 9 Homes for rent
There are a variety of property types and price points available in Swansea–everything from grand Tudor mansions to modest semi’s and bungalows. There are also Toronto apartments for rent around the area as well as new condo developments along The Queensway and Windermere.
The wide variety of property in Swansea makes this area accessible on a variety of budgets but it’s most coveted for its large, luxury Toronto houses for sale. High-end Swansea homes for sale near High Park, overlooking the pond, or in the Brule Gardens area in the northwest of the neighbourhood sell well into the seven figures.
For buyers and renters dreaming of a life by the water, the new-build Windermere by the Lake condo and townhome developments are a great choice. They offer lots of amenities, stunning lakefront views and easy access to the waterfront bike and pedestrian trails as well as High Park.
Take a drive around Toronto’s Swansea neighbourhood and you’ll be hard pressed to believe you’re still in the city.
Located on the far western edge of Toronto, overlooking High Park’s Grenadier Pond to its east and the Humber River to its west, Swansea feels like a self-contained satellite town. Buyers interested in homes for sale in Toronto where you don’t actually feel like you’re in Toronto should give Swansea homes for sale a gander.
Swansea’s rolling hills, tree-lined winding streets and waterfront locations (it’s the only Toronto neighbourhood to boast a pond, a lake and a river) make Swansea an attractive option for buyers who want short commutes but don’t like the hustle and bustle of urban living.
It’s convenient for motorists with easy access to the Gardiner and Lakeshore although there are buses running along Windermere and Morningside. The Runnymede and Jane subway stations are also within walking distance for residents who live in the northern part of Swansea.
Why We Love Swansea
Its Town Hall is All About Community
Swansea Village is the only neighbourhood in Toronto with its own, community-run Town Hall that serves as the centre of neighbourhood-life for many local families.
Swansea Town Hall has tons of kids’ programs and classes including dance, music, martial arts, fencing, fitness and academic programs and more. It also houses the Swansea Nursery School, the Swansea Memorial Library, the Swansea Area Seniors’ Association and a Toronto Public Health Dental Clinic.
As well, there are a variety of public events held here throughout the year and you can rent space for clubs, business meetings or parties.
It’s Urban Living for City-Phobes
We often talk with buyers who want to live in Toronto-proper, in close proximity to downtown, but dislike the hustle and bustle of city life. For many, the suburbs are simply not desirable but they feel that without top-end budgets, they’re options for a family-sized home in a peaceful, Toronto neighbourhood are limited.
If this sounds like you, Swansea is well worth a look. It really feels like another world within its natural waterfront and parkland borders and the wide range of property options and prices means Swansea is within grasp for most buyers.
