Danforth Village has a long history, named after Asa Danforth, an American man who was responsible for building Kingston Road in the late 1790’s.
By the early 1900’s, Danforth Village was subdivided and homes began to sprout up throughout the area. The growth of the area was aided by the construction of the Prince Edward Viaduct in 1918 as well as the Bloor-Danforth subway in the 1960’s.
The majority of the homes in Danforth Village were constructed in the 1920’s and 1930’s, many of which still retain the original charm.
In the northern part of Danforth Village is full of semi-detached homes, while those in the southern region are single family properties including bungalows and newer townhouse developments.
Home prices in Danforth Village range from $300,000 to $700,000, making the community one of the most affordable in Toronto.
