Roncesvalles Village, known fondly as “Roncy,” is a family-friendly, west-end neighbourhood that combines European ambience with a small-town feel. The wide side walks are lined with unique bookstores, boutique clothing shops, independent restaurants, and vestiges of the once-dominate Polish community.
Daily shopping is easy with fruit and flower markets populating the corners, while the 101-year-old Revue Cinema creates a nostalgic feel – all within in short distance of the bustling downtown scene and the city’s largest public park.
The charm and character of these well-kept Victorian and Edwardian century homes are enjoying revitalization, however the short supply has fuelled a number of passionate bidding wars.
A lush and mature tree canopy compliments the spacious front porches, well-tended gardens, and attractive neighbourhood homes. Garages are typically tucked away out of sight at the rear of the house.
Spanning over 150 years, the eclectic mix of architecture covers everything from Late 19th Century Victorian homes, to Early to Mid-20th Century houses, to 21st Century townhomes, to loft conversions and low-rise condo developments.
