This somnolent part of town sits atop Eglinton West, close to the 401 and the subway on its eastern front. Its affordability and proximity to public transit make it a popular choice for young families. Although the area is now fairly diverse, it retains an Italian feel—for example, many homes sport basement kitchens. Eglinton provides some shopping, but to get most of what you need, a car is a must. If you’re looking to tweak a house to your liking, the northwestern corner of the neighbourhood is littered with enough renovation and fixture stores to have been christened by the city as the Castlefield Caledonia Design & Décor District.
