How is the real estate market in Eatonville Etobicoke?

Posted on: January 28th, 2020

Remember Eaton’s department stores?  They were once the largest retailer in Canada.  In the 1890s, they opened a 400-acre farm west of Toronto to provide a reliable supply of milk, eggs, poultry, and vegetables for their stores.  They also donated a little parcel of that farm to the local community on which to build a school.  The school was named “Eatonville School” in their honor and the name stuck on the neighbourhood of Etobicoke.

Here is the sold activity for this past December in Eatonville Etobicoke to give you an idea of price ranges.
