Clairlea is well known for being a private, middle-class neighbourhood with plenty of shopping, restaurants, and other amenities. In addition to a family atmosphere, it is the perfect community for those who commute to work thanks to public transit in the area and its close proximity to the Don Valley Parkway.
In the 18060’s, Clairlea was part of what was once known as Moffat’s Corners. Over the years, the area went through many changes and the present day community was first developed in the 1950’s.
At this time, much of the farm land that made up the area was replaced by houses.
Clairlea is named after the Clairlea Public School, which opened its doors to students in 1951.
The majority of homes in Clairlea were built during the 1940’s and 1950’s. Most of the homes in the area are bungalows and one and a half story, and two story detached properties.
Those who are more interested in a modern home may find what they are looking for in the Warden Woods Ravine subdivision. This area offers a variety of homes, ranging from townhouses to semi-detached and detached properties.
Home prices in Clairlea are among the lowest in Toronto, starting at roughly $100,000. However, there are homes in the community that have sold for $500,000 or more.
