Greenwood Coxwell Toronto Real Estate
Before it was Greenwood-Coxwell, the Small family owned the 500 acres of lots 6, 7 and 8 of York Township which extended from the shore of Lake Ontario to Danforth Avenue. Peter Small built Coxwell and named it after his son, Charles Coxwell Small. Hugh Cochran was one of the earliest European settlers west of Coxwell and he built a house on the corner of what is known today as Walpole Avenue and Woodfield Road. Greenwood-Coxwell is a stretch in a great place to access most of the attractions in Toronto's west end: from the coffee-shops of Leslieville, to the vivacity and vibrancy of Little India. The relaxing pace of the Beach is a short distance away as well as some of the city of Toronto's best parks.
The area has many options for homes including semi-detached, simple brick row houses, small cottage-style homes and newer townhouses. Many of the larger and older buildings are starting to give way to more semi-detached and detached homes. The neighbourhood is becoming a popular alternative to people who can't decide between Leslieville and the Beach as it is conveniently located near the two.
There is no lack of park space in the area; Monarch Park, Greenwood Park, Woodbine Park and Ashbridges Bay are all nearby for recreational needs. Ashbridges bay is especially a favourite with its boardwalks and beach location, and it has an exercise path that extends for miles and spaces nearby for picnics, bbq's and all manner of sports.
Monarch Park, Riverdale Collegiate Institute and Danforth Collegiate and Technical Institute are the three high schools in the area and Duke Of Connaught and Roden Public School are both combined junior and senior schools. Finally, Greenwood-Coxwell is the place for prospective home-buyers who are interested in a neighbourhood with a prime location to take advantage of the East End of Toronto's best attractions.
