Toronto’s “small village in a big city” – Bloor West Village is a cozy enclave with a distinct residential feel and strong local pride.
Bloor West Village encompasses a unique stretch of Bloor filled with trendy shops, European butchers, cafes, and a palpable sense of civic pride. The area itself extends from the corner of Bloor and Jane Streets to Runnymede Road and Annette Street.
One of the best parts about living in Bloor West Village is being able to get around the city quite quickly. Both Runnymede and Jane subway stations provide access to the downtown core, while drivers can find relatively easy access to the Gardiner (and its access to other major area highways).
The Local Homes
Most of the homes that make up Bloor West Village are Victorian-era buildings, with some being renovated to accommodate larger families (and others converted into apartments). Mainly featuring detached and semi-detached homes, this area is great for move-up buyers looking for distinct neighbourhood charm.
Bloor West Village is best known for its proximity to one of Toronto’s most iconic green spaces: High Park. This helps cement the incredibly strong sense of local pride throughout this area – during any day of the week, Bloor comes to life with locals ambling between the local bakeries, butchers, and specialty shops.
