The Lowdown on St. Clair and Blakeley

Your Typical Neighbour

The St.Clair/Blakeley ‘hood is home to a diverse community, attracting both long-time residents and young families who have relocated from the GTA drawn to its High Park-like atmosphere. 

What We

We love this enclave of turn-of-the-century homes nestled at the base of the Niagara Escarpment. Home of the St. Clair Boulevard Historic District, there is some serious architectural eye-candy to admire. One of the biggest standout features is the proximity to Gage Park, a beautiful and well-maintained park that offers a wide range of activities, amenities, and events for all ages. 

What We Don't

The parks and green spaces are plentiful (there are multiple playgrounds in the neighbourhood) but it is not the most walkable area of the lower city. Newcomers like Rooney’s Coffee, Willard’s Ice Cream, and Coven Plant Based Market signal the neighbourhood is moving in the right direction but you’re going to be driving or taking the bus for most of your errands. 

Property Statistics in St. Clair and Blakeley

Source: TREB Statistics

The lot sizes throughout the area are generous.  The majority of the lots are around 80ft to 100ft deep with a few blocks offering lots in the 125ft  to 150+ft range. Homes on the Blakeley side (between Sherman Ave S and the park) tend to be a bit more modest in scale as compared to the St. Clair side (between Sherman Ave S and Westworth Ave S). 

The area has become a bit of a destination of sorts for Toronto transplants attracted to the mix of large, detached homes close to Gage Park at a more attractive price point than similar homes in Kirkendall and Westdale.
