Roncesvalles Real Estate Overview

Roncesvalles sits to the east of High Park, north of the pristine Lake Ontario. Its boundaries are Bloor Street West to the north, Lake Ontario/Queen Street West to the south, Lansdowne Avenue/rail corridor to the east, and High Park to the west. It provides residents with a wide variety of real estate options to fit any budget.

The area was initially known as "Howard Park." Much of this community was officially within the Parkdale and Brockton (former) villages and was amalgamated with Toronto in the 1880s.

Roncevalles, as we see today, started showing signs of development after the street-car came to this neighbourhood in the early 1900s. As it is today, the community has been family-centred from the very beginning. The industries in the vicinity provided employment opportunities to the many British immigrants who settled here. The St.Vincent de Paul Roman Catholic Church is a crucial landmark of the Roncesvalles as it was the spiritual centre of the original residents.

After the Second World War, the neighbourhood saw an influx of Eastern Europeans, predominantly from Poland. They built St.Casimir's, which served as a private church for the Polish community.

Today, Roncesvalles is a charming community with a young professional character and boasts a culture that nurtures families.
