#1 on Toronto Life Magazine’s 'Ultimate Neighbourhood Rankings'

Based on housing, crime rate, transit, health, entertainment, people, and employment, Toronto Life Magazine puts Forest Hill at the top of their ‘Ultimate Neighbourhood Rankings.’ Forest Hill real estate captures the perfect combination of quiet luxury and stateliness. The extravagant houses and hustle and bustle of the main streets juxtapose the quaint shopping area in Forest Hill Village, which is full of unique specialty shops and boutiques, prominent coffee shops, cafes, and restaurants.

Residents of Forest Hill enjoy a beautiful and diverse topography of gently sloping hills, winding roads, and a variety of parks, parkettes, and trails, most notably Cedarvale Park and the picturesque Belt Line fitness and nature trail, which boasts 14.5 kilometers of opportunity for joggers, cyclists, and pedestrians alike. Anyone needing to leave the neighbourhood can do so easily via Allen Road and Highway 401, or on the busses that run through the area, the subway from Eglinton West and St. Clair West stations, the St. Clair streetcar, or, when it’s finished, the Eglinton Crosstown light rail line.

Luxury Real Estate in Forest Hill

Due to Forest Hill’s old building codes and bylaws, dating back to the 20’s and 30’s, that required all houses be designed by an architect and that a tree be planted on the front of each property, Forest Hill real estate is made up of beautiful brick and stone Toronto mansions that sit on streets lined with majestic, mature trees. The lot sizes are famously large, leaving lots of room for manicured lawns, welcoming patios, refreshing swimming pools, and the occasional private tennis court.

Forest Hill is also home to recently-built luxury condominiums in the western part of the neighbourhood, equipped with excellent amenities and designed for high-class living.
