Welcome to Weston:

Discover one of the remaining hidden treasures of Toronto, tucked up in the northwestern corner of the city's edge. The neighbourhood of Weston rests on the eastern border of the Humber River and has become a quiet haven for those seeking a balance of city living with a small town feel. Although it was amalgamated with the City of Toronto in 1998, this area has held strong to its historic roots that date back to the late 1790s.Weston is situated northwest of the city, Weston rests south of highway 401 and stretches from the east band of the Humber River to just west of Jane Street, with Eglinton Avenue bordering it to the south. Walk through the streets here, past historic buildings and character houses, and there's a calm tranquility, reminiscent of simpler times. For those looking to escape the hectic pace of Toronto, but still remain in close proximity, this area can provide that ideal balance. Weston is priced more affordably than Toronto-proper and other surrounding neighbourhoods. For those looking to enter the housing market or looking to situate themselves closer to the downtown core, this area gives you the chance to have the best of both worlds.

Highlight:

There's plenty of character throughout this neighbourhood, rich in history and experience. From stately century homes to the cast iron lampposts bearing an iconic bicycle, harkening back to the days when Weston was known as the proud 'Home of the Bicycle,' every part of the neighbourhood has a story to tell.

Neighbours:

Predominantly working age couples and one-parent households with young children.

Prices:

Last year, the average home cost was approximately $659,000.

Life Style:

Close enough to downtown to enjoy the benefits of the city, yet far enough removed to experience that small town feeling. It's easy enough to access the downtown core when you want to, but Weston has got everything you'll need, from the small shops lining Weston Road specializing in cultural goods to the big box retailers at The Crossroads Centre off Highway 401, so you'll never need to go far to find what you want.

House Style:

Weston remains one of the most affordable neighbourhoods in the Toronto region, with housing prices still resting far below the average of the surrounding city. For those looking to enter the housing market, it's still possible to do so and actually make it an affordable venture.

History

What you'll fall in love with:

There's plenty of character everywhere you look. From the historic stone houses to the ornate lampposts lining the streets, everything has a story to tell. Even after merging to become a part of the City of Toronto on paper, the residents here hold fast to the history and uniqueness of their region. Street signs throughout the area still bear the words 'Town of Weston,' as a proud tribute to the neighbourhood's past. The Weston Public Library first opened its doors in 1914 and, today, still stands as a heritage site. Built as an art nouveau structure, it beautifully embodies the style and craftsmanship of its creators. The CCM bicycle factory remained a large entity in the economy of Weston until its closure in the 1980s. Images of old fashioned bicycles are still prevalent throughout the area, still nicknamed the 'Home of the Bicycle' and pay homage to the factory and the economic prosperity it offered residents. Downtown Toronto is close enough to reach by bicycle, following the Humber River until it reaches the Toronto waterfront and the Martin Goodman Trail. It's a scenic, 45-minute bike ride that winds through lush wooded areas and along the stunning shoreline of Lake Ontario. Weston offers a variety of shopping options, from big box stores for everyday needs, to niche shops for unique one-of-a-kind finds. The Crossroads Centre is home to The Brick, Canadian Tire and a large LCBO location, on top of several clothing retailers. Specialty shops, like Greenland Farm Supermarket and Squibb's Commercial Stationers cater to more specific shopping needs. Yorkdale Shopping Centre is a short trip by car or bus. The long history of the area is well reflected within the style and character of the houses, showing the varied styles and trends throughout the times, from Victorian-style century homes to 1960s bungalows and back-splits. The largest park in Weston, Lions Park, is the area's pride and joy. Whether your sport of choice is tennis, baseball, swimming or hockey, the facilities can accommodate your needs. Lace up your ice skates and take a lap around the rink that NHL legend Paul Coffey once called home ice.
