As one of the smallest neighbourhoods in Toronto, Humber Summit is the perfect fit for those who are interested in a close knit community with a variety of real estate options.
Despite the fact that this middle class neighbourhood is small, it is home to people of many backgrounds including Italian, Asian, and East Indian.
The first settlers made their way to Humber Summit in the 1840’s, during which time the community was based largely on the many saw mills in the area.
When the early 1900’s rolled around, Humber Summit was more of a farming community. This was the case until the 1940’s when the area transitioned into a summer resort known as Riverbank Park.
Most of the homes in Humber Summit were constructed during the 1940’s and 1950’s, however, the area is home to some newer custom properties as well.
Some of the most desirable houses are located east of Islington Avenue. With front porches, built in garages, and detailed architecture, the character of these homes is attractive to many buyers.
The majority of these properties were built in the 1960’s.
