Welcome to Summerhill
One of Toronto's most preferred neighbourhoods, Summerhill is close to downtown, stretching along Yonge street and nestled between Avenue Road and Mt Pleasant Road.
What it's like
Named after the 'Summer Hill' house that was built in 1842 by Canadian transportation baron Charles Thompson and was an entertainment mecca at the time. In 1866 it became a private residence. The original coach house is still standing today behind 36 Summerhill Gardens and can be seen from the The Rosehill Reservoir.
Although Summerhill is family friendly, it is more popular with singles and young professionals.
This community is rich with park life, excellent shopping and close to everything.
