Islington Heights / Islington Village Toronto Real Estate

Islington Village is a truly great, family friendly neighbourhood in Central Etobicoke part of west Toronto that doesn't seem to have received the acclaim or profile of its better known surrounding neighbourhoods of the Kingsway, Humber Valley Village, Humbertown, and Princess Margaret. Islington Heights - Islington Village falls into the Toronto Real Estate Board MLS Listing district as Princess-Rosethorn.

Islington Heights has as much, if not more, to offer it's home owners and real estate investors. Islington Height is home to sought after schools including Rosethorn Junior Public School, St. Gregory's Catholic Junior School, and Etobicoke C.I. Public High School, it is also home to a private golf club, Islington Golf Club, which offers both golf and social memberships  There are also two well organized and friendly tennis clubs, Rosethorn Tennis Club and Central Tennis Club in the area.

For incredible convenience, Thorncrest Shopping Plaza is located at the north end of Islington Village and provides a major grocery store, great coffee shop, hardware store, gift store, picture framing establishment, flower shop, as well as two national banks and several other unique stores.  At the south end, between Islington and Kipling, on Dundas Street, is an historic shopping area, which has been rejuvenated and is a pleasure to walk along with its diverse array of interesting stores and great restaurants and pubs, including a world class cooking school.  You will also notice that end walls and other spaces have been painted with gorgeous murals to engage the imagination and enhance the village and family friendly feel.

Homes in this neighbourhood are diverse, from 50+ year old bungalows to brand new custom built multi-million dollar homes, and at the south end, there are several extremely well located, highly sought after condominium buildings. And don't forget the excellent access to transportation this area offers - frequent buses troll Islington and Kipling Avenues and Islington Subway Station is a walk away for many living in the area.

If you are looking for a great Etobicoke neighborhood to purchase your next home, condo or town house then Islington Village is a great choice.
