This is life … on the Glen

Toronto is known as a city of neighbourhoods, each with its own unique charm, flavour and history. Among the most idyllic is Glen Agar, a hidden gem tucked away in a scenic natural location in Etobicoke. Steeped in history and surrounded by ravines and parks, this is the setting for Minto’s exclusive new community, Glen Agar, a spectacular enclave development featuring just 53 stunningly designed 30-foot single-family homes.

Located near the intersection of Kipling Avenue and Rathburn Road in an established, mature neighbourhood, these contemporary homes are embellished with luxurious, meticulously detailed features. A charming blend of traditional and modern, the homes are influenced by Tudor and Georgian styles with varied rooflines to create a dramatic streetscape. A second elevation option offers modern architecture for a fresh, clean facade. Brick and natural-looking stone, metal panels and wide expanses of glass add to the contemporary look.

Inside, the three-storey single-detached homes are distinguished by flowing, open-concept layouts, high ceilings, large gourmet kitchens with island counters, walk-in pantries, great rooms designed for living and entertaining, cozy family rooms, luxurious bedrooms and spa-inspired ensuites. Ranging from 3,500 to 4,200 square feet, these three-, four- and five-bedroom homes are designed for comfortable family living. Prices start at $1.4 million.

The community of Glen Agar has a rich and diverse history going back almost 150 years. The original Bigham Agar Farm can still be seen, high up on a hill on the north side of Rathburn Road, east of Martin Grove Road. The cottage was once the home of Irish pioneer Andrew Bigham and his wife Mary Cleveland. The home remained in the Bigham/Agar family for over 140 years. The land was then developed into the Glen Agar neighbourhood, yet the house still stands today, hidden away at the top of the hill.

Living at Glen Agar, you are just moments from all the things you love. Ideally located in the heart of Etobicoke, close to Highways 427 and 401, Glen Agar is just a short drive from Toronto Pearson Airport, many downtown destinations, and the designer shopping at Sherway Gardens Mall and Bloor West. TTC buses stop outside your door, providing quick connections in every direction. Walk to nearby schools, community centres, parks and nature trails. Libraries, arenas, shopping, dining and services are just a few of the great amenities you will find right in your own neighbourhood.

Glen Agar is a rare oasis tucked away in a spectacular scenic setting. The winding Mimico Creek ravine cuts through the community, a beautiful swathe of green connecting many neighbourhood parks, including Glen Agar Park, Ravenscrest Park, Hampshire Heights Park and Echo Valley Creek. The biggest of these, West Deane Park is a 54-hectare community park that features two baseball diamonds, four tennis courts, three children’s playgrounds, several walking and biking trails and a family picnic area.

Glen Agar is another signature community from Minto, one of the GTA’s leading, award-winning homebuilders. Bringing together the skills, energy and talents of over 1,400 employees, Minto has been instrumental in the design and construction of more than 70,000 residential and commercial properties in Toronto, Ottawa and South Florida.
