The Allenby Neighbourhood
Established in the early 1930’s, the uptown Toronto neighbourhood of Allenby is centred on its namesake, the reputable Allenby Junior Public School. Popular with young families, the tree-lined avenues of Allenby provide a residential environment while offering excellent access to uptown Toronto shops, schools, parks and services.
The majority of Allenby homes are built in the Tudor style of the 1930’s and 1940’s, with a typical side hall design and solid brick construction. A mix of detached one and two-storey homes with slightly larger than average lot sizes (25-30 ft frontage) make them a popular choice for growing families. Many Allenby homes have undergone extensive renovation in recent decades, with most maintaining their original style and character. Most homes in Allenby have utilitarian cellar basements, and offer either mutual or private driveways.
Allenby Real Estate Market
The Allenby neighbourhood is no stranger to competitive real estate transactions. Thanks to the excellent reputation of Allenby Junior Public School, sales of homes within the school district are consistently strong, and commonly see bidding wars in heated markets.
Allenby is renowned for being an excellent school district, encompassing one of the city’s best public schools and offering close proximity to uptown and midtown private schools such as Havergal College, St. Clements School, Upper Canada College, and Bishop Strachan School.
