Alderwood has a good mix of long standing residents who have lived there for up to 50 years and young professionals starting families. Alderwood itself is characterized by single family homes on large lots, most of which were constructed at the end of the Second World War. The streets are lined with mature trees and pride of ownership is evident. You’ll also notice that there are many homes being “topped up” as well as homes being torn down and rebuilt which makes it a really great neighbourhood to invest in.
Why we like it:
Alderwood has come a long way quickly and we think that it’s one of Toronto’s best kept secrets. You have all of the amenities of city living but it feels like you’re living in nature with Etobicoke Creek running alongside it on the west border. There have been some significant improvements with respect to amenities. If you make your way down to Lake Shore Blvd you’ll find some very cool restaurants and there is a new Starbucks as well as an indie coffee shop. Sherway Gardens is minutes away (some of the best shopping in Toronto).
