A diamond rink in the rough
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.
