Although there are many neighbourhoods located throughout Toronto, some stick out for one reason or the next. One such area is Summerhill.
With its 100+ year old homes, tree lined streets, and vast parkland, it has been known as one of the top neighborhoods in Toronto for many years.
In addition to being a great place to live, residents of Summerhill have easy access to the downtown entertainment and business districts.
The small town feel, coupled with its close proximity to downtown, make Summerhill the perfect location for individuals and families to settle down.
Named after the after ‘Summer Hill’ house, this neighborhood has been in existence since the mid 1800’s, making it one of the oldest in Toronto.
In the late 1800’s, the majority of people living in Summerhill worked at the North Toronto Railway station. This began to change over time, as the area developed and more jobs became available.
The majority of homes in Summerhill were built between the years of 1880 and 1915. From semi-detached Victorian homes to detached Edwardian style homes, there is a nice mix of properties throughout the neighborhood.
To go along with homes that are more than 100 years old, there are also modern townhouses and luxury condo apartment buildings in Summerhill. Most of these properties were constructed in the 1980’s and early 1990’s.
