As a family oriented community with a small town feel, a growing number of people are moving to Cliffcrest. Despite the close proximity to the city, the natural beauty of the area has not been lost.
Although Cliffcrest did not receive its name until the 1960’s, the community itself has been around since the early 1900’s.
Early on, the neighbourhood was best known for being home to Scarborough Heights Park. However, it closed in 1929 which led to a period of decline.
By the 1940’s and 1950’s the area began to pick back up, and it was during this time that residential development began.
There are a variety of home styles located throughout Cliffcrest, including bungalows, semi-detached and detached homes. The majority of the properties were constructed during the 1940’s and 1950’s, however, there are more modern custom built homes scattered throughout the neighbourhood.
Some of the homes south of Kingston Road offer view of Lake Ontario, making them among the most valuable in the area.
Home prices in Cliffcrest range from $200,000 on the low end to approximately $1 million at the top of the local market.
