Located just a block away from the cluster of highrise buildings centred around the Eglinton subway station on the Yonge Street line, this leafy residential community is definitely the best of all worlds for those who choose to call Chaplin Estates their home.
Named for the Chaplin family who originally owned the land, this small pocket of exclusively detached homes has always been a prestigious neighbourhood. Most homes were built in the 1920s and 30s on premium lots with private driveways, featuring Tudor, Georgian and English Cottage style architecture.
Take advantage of the beautiful pool and fitness facilities at the North Toronto Community Centre and Arena are just west of Yonge Street. Eglinton Park offers sports fields, a baseball diamond, wading pool, children's playground, and tennis courts that become an artificial ice rink in the wintertime. The Kay Gardner Belt Line Park, with 4.5km of walking and biking trails is on your doorstep.
Enjoy great shopping along Yonge Street as well as east and west along Eglinton Avenue. This trendy area is home to clothing boutiques carrying designer labels, sidewalk cafés, and specialty food shops. The area still hums into the evening as residents enjoy the many clubs, bars and restaurants which range from casual outdoor eateries to some of Toronto’s finest cuisine. This is a neighbourhood where people gather and socialize.
