Lawrence Park is an idyllic neighbourhood situated in the geographic centre of Toronto. Its exquisite, luxurious homes tend to be well constructed and very tastefully renovated.
Because the homes in Lawrence Park were built gradually over the first half of the 1900s, there is a lot of unique character to the individual architectural designs. Despite this, the neighbourhood is far from disjointed; perhaps because of the maturity of the area, I find that homes in Lawrence Park have a harmonious flow.
Besides its elegant homes and park-like setting, affluent buyers are attracted to Lawrence Park for the following:
Being right in the middle of the city means Lawrence Park residents can reach downtown quickly via the Bayview extension or the Yonge subway line, and cut across the top of the city on Highway 401, merely minutes away.
Some of Toronto's best private schools are in the area, including Saint Clements, Crescent School, and The Toronto French School. Lawrence Park's public schools, including North Toronto and Northern Secondary, are also quite highly regarded. York University's Glendon Campus is also nearby at the corner of Lawrence and Bayview. Glendon is unique in that it offers its liberal arts studies in both French and English, on an estate-like campus nestled on the edge of the Don River ravine.
So many fine stores and restaurants are to be found near Lawrence Park. This stretch of Yonge Street is a hub of athletic shops (e.g. lululemon, Sporting Life, Puma), fine restaurants (Grazie, North 44, and Centro), stores with fine furnishings, clothing, and everything else. South of Eglinton on both Bayview and Mount Pleasant is home to lots more trendy eateries, antique stores, specialty shops, and other fine establishments to depart with money.
