Parkdale West Toronto Real Estate:
Parkwood houses were built largely between 1890 and 1910. In the beginning there were beautiful mansions in the south end overlooking Lake Ontario but in the 1950's when the Garginer Expressway was built these homes were demolishes and apartment buildings went up. Today, many of the homes are beautiful semis that show great character. The lots tend to be more narrow and not as long but all properties do have ample backyards for entertaining or play area for kids. Many of the streets still boast the 100 year old trees.
We have seen major renovations in the semis and detached homes in Parkdale as we saw in the 90's and 2000's many young families and wite collar professionals move into the area as it was the closest neighbourhood affordable for the downtown business men and women.
