Etobicoke is full of old wartime bungalows that at one time entire families lived in. Years ago families required less living space. More time was spent outside the home therefore, mega-McMansions weren’t necessary. Now we have more stuff, bigger stuff and everyone requires there own living space. Sharing bedrooms, TV’s etc is unheard of.



I recently came across a listing that completely reimagines old wartime bungalows. 86 UNO DR appears to have been gutted from its original layout. It is no longer anywhere near being a home for a family, which is fine because families these days require much more square footage. This is definitely a home for a single person or childless couple. 44 Treeview Dr. There were many different plans as you will see…

It should read 10 Closest in Proximity to Etobicoke as only 3 are actually in or close to the border. The Closest Hospital to Central Etobicoke is Etobicoke North General / William Osler Health. This location is in North Etobicoke across from Guelph-Humber College on Hwy 27 North. Across from Sherway Gardens is the Trillium Health Centre down in South Central Etobicoke. St. Joseph's is South East border of Etobicoke/Toronto on The Queensway at Roncesvalles. 

YELP offers up reviews of all sorts of businesses and I found it intriguing that some people have chosen to review a hospital. Some favourably, some not so. in an Inside Toronto article reporting on a recent Health Forum meeting of the following panel members and Public.…

Preparing large holiday meals can be overwhelming and time consuming unless of course you have a second oven to bake that pie and more fridge space to store those appetizers you made ahead of time.

Consider all the alternatives... if you have a dining area why do you need an eat-in kitchen? Use your space wisely. Turn the eat-in into a den or office space where working from home becomes a possibility.

Buying a home means having an open mind. You may not have considered what potential every room holds. Attic spaces can become cozy bedrooms, home offices or the…
