The Allenby neighbourhood allows for convenient shopping access along Avenue Road and Eglinton Avenue, while there are also plenty of local parks and arenas in the area.
Like many neighbourhoods in North Toronto, Allenby real estate consists of mostly detached brick homes that are popular with families. Built in the 1930s and ‘40s, many of these character-rich Tudors are on large lots with big trees, and have shared or private driveways.
Allenby is known for its renowned schools, including private institutions such as Havergal College, St. Clements School, Upper Canada College, and Bishop Strachan School. Private schools in the neighbourhood include Allenby Junior Public School, Glenview Senior Public School, Lawrence Park Secondary School, North Toronto Collegiate Institute, and Marshall McLuhan Catholic Secondary School.
With so many shopping and dining options on Eglinton, it’s difficult to pick just one favourite. For a night out, 7 Numbers Restaurant serves some of the finest Italian dishes in the area. Follow up with some delicious gelato at Hotel Gelato, where you’ll find flavours such as margarita, spicy Mayan chocolate, and Ontario peach sorbet.
