    This quiet North York neighbourhood used to be a well-kept secret. Homeowners loved the generous lots and quiet, leafy-green streets, and snapped up post-war bungalows at bargain prices. The majority of residents are middle class, with a hodgepodge of Italian, Russian, Polish and Filipino families. Area landmarks include synagogues, strip malls and the sprawling 338-acre G. Ross Lord Park.

    HOUSING STOCK: The classic Bathurst Manor residence is a bungalow or a sidesplit  set on a wide lot on a quiet street, but there are small multi-family dwellings as well. While the majority of homes date back to the 1950s, many properties are being renovated and modernized, and developer interest has resulted in the occasional mansion. Some ’70s-era high-rises dot the landscape, though they tend to be rental units rather than condos.

    BARGAIN ZONES: The key is to look for an unrenovated bungalow, then put in some sweat equity. These untouched gems used to be found on most streets, but they are increasingly rare. Fixes can be as simple as kitchen and bathroom upgrades, but for the more ambitious, there’s plenty of room for additional living space, as the majority of residences sit on generous lots.

    THE VERDICT: House prices are still a steal in comparison to other central areas—particularly given the number of potential tear-downs. There’s plenty of green space and easy access to both the Allen and Highway 401. However, shopping is sparse and one of the principal strip malls—Wilmington Plaza, at the centre of the neighbourhood—is long overdue for a facelift and an injection of new stores. An overhaul is in the planning stages.
