A di­a­mond rink in the rough

Richmond Hill Post - - News -

The Beaches is one of the city’s most pic­turesque neigh­bour­hoods with the lake at its south­ern bound­ary and the gor­geous Glen Ste­wart Ravine snaking its way through the cen­tre. Although there are a num­ber of streets with se­ri­ous tro­phy homes, such as Bal­sam Av­enue, lo­cals have long ad­mired the homes along the ravine, es­pe­cially on GLEN MANOR DRIVE East and West. In win­ter, there’s al­ways a mas­sive ice rink con­structed by neigh­bours for neigh­bours in the grassy cen­tre of the ravine, with an area for skat­ing and one for a seem­ingly un­end­ing game of shinny hockey. On a week­end af­ter­noon, with a throng of to­bog­gan­ers also us­ing the ravine, sur­rounded by tall trees piled high with fluffy white snow, the hub of ac­tiv­ity is like a Nor­man Rock­well paint­ing. It’s that per­fect. Glen Manor is a short walk to lo­cal schools and of­fers a range of homes with su­pe­rior value to those found on streets such as Bal­sam. Here, one could still snag a fam­ily home for less than $2 mil­lion.
