Did you know this about Bedford Park?

Bedford Park began as a farming hamlet north of Toronto. The hamlet was a popular stopover for farmers making their way to market in the city. The neighbourhood was likely named after the Bedford Park Hotel, which opened in 1873 at the southwest corner of Yonge Street and Fairlawn Avenue, just north of Lawrence Avenue

Bounded by Highway 401 to the north, a zigzag pattern featuring Hillhurst Boulevard, Coldstream/Glenview Avenues and Brooke Avenue to the south, Bathurst Street to the west and Proudfoot Avenue, Elm Road and Yonge Street to the east, it is largely residential.

Cheryl and Samantha know it extremely well and therefore understand why you are interested in this area.

The Graff Girls explain that the transition of Bedford Park from original semis and detached homes to new builds has been in demand since 1995.  Land is worth more than the homes themselves if they lend themselves to a new build or even more so a lot that can be severed for 2 homes.  Many young families as well as couples looking to downsize before going to a condominium find Bedford Park a desirable neighbourhood as it is easily accessible for transit via the 401 and south on Avenue Road takes you right to Yorkville and Downtown Toronto.  Many shops, fitness facilities, restaurants and services are located along Yonge street and Avenue Road which surround the Bedford park area.

So The Graff Girls understand why you are thinking of buying a house here.
