Built in the 1920s, Chaplin Estates is one of the most popular family neighbourhoods, with quiet tree-lined residential streets, just minutes from downtown Toronto. Ideally situated between Eglinton Avenue on the north, Yonge Street on the east, Avenue Road to the west, and Chaplin Crescent to the south, this high demand area attracts a healthy demographic mix, ranging from young families to empty nesters. Turn restrictions off major streets have virtually eliminated all traffic during the morning and evening rush hours. Good restaurants, shopping, the subway and the North Toronto Memorial Community Centre are all within walking distance. Many homes in the neighbourhood have been extensively renovated in recent years or replaced with newly constructed homes.
In Chaplin Estates, stately Tudor and Georgian homes can fetch up to $1.5 million, but they don't remain on the market for long. Young professional parents are drawn by the coveted school district and short subway ride to and from work. The broad range of houses allows homeowners to move up without leaving the neighbourhood.
The proposed development along Duplex and Berwick Avenues has recently been approved by the city, for a 17-storey condominium building and three-storey townhouses on the former TTC bus terminal.
