Forest Hill Toronto Real Estate

The Forest Hill neighbourhood is one of Toronto's most prestigious and beautiful communities. The mansions in Lower Forest Hill are rivalled only by those found in Rosedale. Forest Hill also contains a fair number of luxury condominium apartment buildings. See what else makes Forest Hill real estate so special below.

Forest Hill is home to two of Canada’s acclaimed private schools, Upper Canada College for boys and Bishop Strachan for girls; making the area a sought after location to raise a family. Its topography is very diverse with gently sloping hills, winding roads and numerous little parkettes all adding charm to the neighbourhood.

The Forest Hill Village shopping district is centred around the intersection of Spadina Road and Lonsdale Road. The ambience of this private enclave of stores is that of a small village rather than a big city. The Village's boutiques and shops cater to the specific needs of Forest Hill's affluent residents.

The History Behind Forest Hill's Beautiful Homes and Ambience

Forest Hill, a neighborhood in Toronto, bears a unique charm rooted in its historical bylaws established in the 1920s. These regulations mandated that each residence be meticulously designed by an architect, resulting in an exquisite collection of brick and stone mansions that exude architectural elegance. This deliberate attention to design has contributed to the neighborhood's timeless appeal, preserving a legacy of stately homes, each a testament to craftsmanship and individuality. Furthermore, the requirement to plant a tree at the front of each property was an extraordinary foresight that has gifted the neighborhood with a canopy of majestic trees, adorning the streets of Lower Forest Hill with a natural grandeur that complements the beauty of the homes.

The result of these early urban planning decisions is a neighborhood that not only boasts architectural splendor but also a harmonious integration with nature. The trees that were mandated to be planted have flourished over the decades, creating a leafy canopy that not only provides shade and natural beauty but also contributes to the overall aesthetic appeal of the area. This commitment to greenery has led to a picturesque streetscape, offering residents and visitors alike a tranquil, inviting environment. The foresight embedded in these bylaws has, over time, crafted a neighborhood renowned not only for its architectural heritage but also for its lush, tree-lined streets that stand as a testament to thoughtful urban planning and a reverence for natural beauty.

The Belt Line fitness and nature trail passes through Forest Hill on its way down to Rosedale. This trail follows the route of the former Belt Line railway, which was Toronto's first commuter train.
