Located East of the Don Valley, Playter Estates is an exclusive neighbourhood that features many of the most desirable homes in Toronto. Along with the high quality homes that line the streets of the community, residents enjoy the Danforth Avenue shopping district along with the close proximity to the city’s transit system.
Playter Estates gets its name from the Playter family, the first inhabitants of the area in the 1790’s. The land was handed down from generation to generation, used as farmland until 1912.
At this point, the neighbourhood as you see it today was developed and a growing number of residents began to make their home here.
The majority of the homes located in Playter Estates were built between 1912 and 1930, and consist of both detached and semi detached properties in Victorian and Edwardian styles.
While each home is unique in its own way, many share some distinguishing features such as stone gates and decorative shingles.
As one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in Toronto, Playter Estates homes range in price from $600,000 to $1 million or more.
