7 Reasons You’ll Love Living In Chaplin Estates
I am the third generation in my family to live in Chaplin Estates, and I have become your local go-to Realtor for all family and housing matters here. Thinking about moving here? Below are quite a few reasons I think you would love this family community.
1 Live like you’re in Europe.
Chaplin Estates lies west of Yonge Street and south of Eglinton and is filled with Tudor, Georgian, and English Cottage style homes. Built in the 20’s and 30’s, these houses are rich in history and beauty.
2 You’re all set when it comes to gourmet food.
There are more than 20 restaurants in close range for a quick lunch or a hearty dinner, including Grano, The Twisted Kilt pub, and Sushi Supreme. Plus, there are lots of shops if you’re in the mood to cook, such as Sobey’s, Urban Fresh, La Salumeria Delicatessen, Yonge Seafood Gourmet Market, and many more.
3 The perfect neighbourhood for families
A popular spot for families with kids is the Neshama Playgound with a water play area and a merry-go-round. If you’re interested in fitness for your family, the Community Center at Eglinton Park has indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a fitness centre, and a variety of programming for all ages.
4 Need to be close to shopping?
You’ll have access to two nearby drugstores, Global Pet Foods, Paper Moon for stationary and many more. And with a 15 minutes walk, you can explore the Yonge and Eglinton area for a variety of shops, restaurants and services. For entertainment, there are 2 multiplex movie theatres available to see the newest blockbuster or indie.

This area boasts 7 public and private schools, including private schools for girls and Upper Canada College, one of the most prestigious private schools for boys in Canada.
I truly love where I live. Shouldn’t you?
