No. 19: Eglinton East

Average sale price: $546,766

Deep in ­Scarborough, Eglinton Avenue is a six-lane highway with big-box retail on both sides. But behind the scrim of strip malls is a hidden treasure trove of detached homes. The neighbourhood’s mid-century bungalows and split-levels sit on massive 40- to 50-foot lots—a premium of space that’s nearly impossible to find elsewhere in Toronto. There’s a suburban vibe, but the stunning Scarborough Bluffs are a 10-minute drive away, and there’s easy access to downtown via the well-placed Kennedy TTC station and Eglinton GO. The craze for rebuilding single-storey homes into multi-storey mini-mansions hasn’t swept the area yet, but, with so much land (and so many bungalows), it’s only a matter of time.
