Buying a Home in Alderwood

This family-friendly neighbourhood is noted for its excellent schools, recreational facilities and proximity to shopping, parks and the lake.


Living in Alderwood

Whether you know it as New Toronto Park, New Toronto Heights, or its Algonquian namesake “Etobicoke,” which translates to “the place where the alders grow,” Alderwood’s rich history and proximity to shopping, parks and recreational facilities are just a few of the reasons you’ll want to call it home. From the charming colonial- and bungalow-lined streets to the natural splendor of Etobicoke Valley Park, a home in Alderwood is ideal for anyone looking for a rich quality of life with easy access to it all.

This includes the Sir Adam Beck Centre – an impressive, multi-use recreational facility built on the former Sir Adam Beck School Grounds with a privately run daycare facility – and the newly renovated Alderwood Pool, which offers residents swim classes for every age.

When you own a home in Alderwood, you also have access to the paved recreational pathway along Etobicoke Creek, which connects to Marie Curtis Park on the shore of Lake Ontario and the Waterfront Trail into downtown Toronto. This nature trail was developed by the Alderwood Environmentalists in association with the city and is a tranquil getaway enjoyed by all.


Alderwood real estate

Alderwood real estate is largely comprised of homes built from the 1920s to ’50s, and are mostly bungalows and colonials with a smattering of more modern, semi-detached and detached housing. The properties in Alderwood are well maintained with nicely manicured lawns, private driveways and large garages. Entry level bungalows in the area sell in the $575,000 plus range, while newer builds top out at over $1 million. Located just west of central Etobicoke, the Alderwood neighbourhood is slightly more affordable than those neighborhoods closer to downtown Toronto, but still provides some of the same great benefits.


Alderwood: Well-established community close to everything

Alderwood is bordered on the west by the Etobicoke Creek Valley and to the east by light industry, which includes corporate giants such as Chrysler Canada Ltd. and Domtar Packaging. Browns Line has a community shopping district with stores and restaurants anchored by Alderwood Plaza. The power shoppers don't have far to go, with the Sherway Gardens Shopping Centre just northwest, via Evans Drive. And anyone heading for downtown Toronto can expect to make the trip in approximately 20 minutes via Lakeshore Boulevard and the Gardiner Expressway.
