Hillcrest Village in North York was developed through the 1960s. The western part includes a beautiful development of mostly bungalows and backsplits built on 50×120 lots, which are now spotted with mature trees ranging from pines to cedars to maples. Winding roads, crescents and cul-de-sacs make for a picturesque tour of a family-friendly neighbourhood. In recent years, the trend has been to renovate/expand (or completely re-build) the original homes, slowing turning the area into a neighbourhood of million-dollar homes.
This house on Drysdale Crescent is one of those classic three bedroom back-splits. Set on the northern part of the street, and featuring a cedar-lined back yard, it has been freshly painted and prepped throughout. The home features two newer baths, hardwood floors, a large rec room, and loads of storage. This one truly is move-in ready. Live in it as-is, or take advantage of the large, beautiful lot and do that expansion – build your dream home! This house gives you all the options.
Beyond the house itself, the area offers a fantastic lifestyle. Loads of amenities are within easy walking distance, including schools (elementary Cresthaven PS, intermediate Zion Heights JHS, secondary AY Jackson), shopping, parks, a couple of TTC bus options and the Old Cummer GO station – which will have you downtown in 40 minutes. If you are an outdoors type you can easily access the Don Valley trail system. If you want to drive downtown or escape the city, the DVP/404 is five minutes away.
