A Favourite Midtown Toronto Neighbourhood For Many Years, Summerhill Home Building Started Circa 1880, And Substantially Continued Until About 1915. The Prevalent Architecture Was Edwardian And Victorian. There Is Still Lots Of Greenery, And Today, Modern Townhomes And Low-Rise Luxury Condominiums Can Be Seen Here And There.

Probably The Number One Asset That Has Made This Area So Much In Demand, Is The Summerhill Subway Station Of The Yonge Street And University Lines. It Is An Easy Walk From Just About Every Home.

Shopping Is Another Major Plus. Shops, Most Notably Some That Have Been Nicknamed The 5 Thieves, Cafes, Restaurants, And An Original Railway Station That Has Been Renovated And Turned Into A Retail LCBO Outlet, All Add To The Charm Of The Summerhill Neighbourhood

There Are Several Public And Private Schools, Large Parks Such As The Rosehill Reservoir With Its Children's Playground, Connection To The Vale Of Avoca Ravine Nature Trails, And Reflecting Pools, And Small Parks Such As The One On Summerhill Avenue Near The Bend In The Road.

Real Estate in Summerhill:

Summerhill's average detached homes tend to cost over a million dollars but there are still many towns and semi’s that run under $900,000 in this area. What is so unique in this area is the old and the new. Being part of Rosedale you can find some nice heritage homes from the turn of the 2th century to newer towns just built over the past 20 years.
