Forest Hill is one of Toronto’s most prestigious and affluent neighbourhoods, rivalling Rosedale and the Bridle Path.
While most of Forest Hill was originally developed by the 1930s, the original village wasn’t annexed to the City of Toronto until 1967. The area’s original building codes and bylaws mandated that houses be designed by an architect and include a tree at the front of each property. Today, the original stately homes are extensively renovated and sit side-by-side with the best of contemporary luxury design, and the neighbourhood features stunning landscaping on generous lots.
The original Forest Hill Village at Lonsdale and Spadina features upscale boutiques and restaurants while retaining the charm of the original village. The area also features a number of other shopping and dining districts, including St. Clair Avenue and Bathurst, and Eglinton and Bathurst.
Toronto’s Belt Line recreational trail passes directly through Forest Hill, providing enjoyment for nature and fitness lovers. The area includes some of Toronto’s oldest churches and synagogues, and Forest Hill claims two of Canada’s most prestigious private schools: Upper Canada College and Bishop Strachan School.
St. Clair West subway station serves the area, and the Eglinton Crosstown LRT (currently under construction) promises to further enhance access. Highway 401 us just a quick drive up the Allen Expressway.
HOUSEHOLDS WITH CHILDREN
A very family friendly neighbourhood. This area is appealing to those who want the large homes and small community feeling with the uptown conveniences and close proximity to downtown Toronto. This area offers a mix of 2 storey, and 1 storey detached and semi-detached homes. Properties have a habit of selling over the asking price and not sit on the market for long. It is a beautiful neighbourhood with a lot to offer.
