Swansea is a beautiful neighbourhood in Toronto’s west end. Located in a beautiful natural setting, it is surprisingly close to downtown Toronto and has amazing character and amenities of its own. Nestled between High Park and the Humber River, you would be hard pressed to find a nicer natural setting in the city of Toronto. Along with Swansea’s beautiful houses, it’s hard to beat!
Swansea is located in an amazing natural setting. It is bordered by High Park to the east, the Humber River to the west, the lake shore to the south and Bloor Street to the north. The main corridor through Swansea is the beautiful South Kingsway.
Swansea, for a neighbourhood that feels so tucked away from the bustle of Canada’s largest city boasts many transportation options. You can access the QEW where it meets with the South Kingsway to drive right downtown. Farther north on Bloor Street, there are many subway stations of the Bloor Danforth line which serve Swansea. You can also cycle down to the lake shore and ride the Martin Goodman trail, for fun or as your commute!
Houses in Swansea are largely early 20th century homes, meaning large layouts and stunning woodwork. The hilly, tree lined streets make for an absolutely breathtaking setting that’s hard not to fall in love with. The views of some of the best natural features in Toronto are a huge draw, and it only takes one look to know why! Closer to Bloor Street, there are condos which still boast large floor plans. Down by the lake shore, there are many new townhouses, offering quite a selection of homes to choose from.
As if being right next to High Park and the lake shore weren’t enough, Swansea is also home to Rennie Park, a beautiful park with a pond. There is also a community centre with gym and a library, located in what was once the town hall of this close knit community. Bloor Street west also offers a large selection of shops and services, and is the centre of Toronto’s Ukrainian community.
It would be hard not to fall in love with a neighbourhood as unique and full of character as Swansea. From a beautiful natural setting right here in the City of Toronto, to a full selection of amenities, Swansea is just the kind of place you’ll want to call home!
