Bayview and York Mills
Amongst one of the most well-known and prestigious neighbourhoods in Toronto are those located in Toronto Real Estate Board’s district of C12, consisting of Bridle Path – Sunnybrook – York Mills and St. Andrews – Windfields. The area is bordered by the 401 to the north, Eglinton Avenue East to the south, Yonge Street to the west and Leslie Street to the east.
The Bridle Path, known for its magnificent mansions and prestigious address, has been home to well-known Torontonians such as Robert Herjavec of Dragon’s Den, Conrad Black, and the late Prince. One of the most highly anticipated mansions in Toronto is currently being built for Toronto’s own Drake, which will be approximately 35,000 square feet of customized opulence, including a rumoured 10-car garage and 914 square foot master bedroom. This area is often (and appropriately) referred to as “Millonaires’ Row”.
Homes in this area are the epitome of opulence and magnitude. Most homes sit on sprawling lots of between 2 to 4 acres, with century-old trees and lush landscaping. It is the most affluent neighbourhood in Toronto with an average household income of $936K. The original homes in C12 were built between the 1920s and 1960s. There are pockets of Tudor-inspired manors, English cottage-style, and contemporary designs. The exclusive enclave of homes in the neighbourhood is surrounded by the Don River Valley and lush parkland, which are the perfect backdrop for the Bridle Path’s stately homes.
The Bayview Mills Condominium Townhouses are located at the north-east corner of Bayview Avenue and York Mills Road and provide entry-level prices for those looking to live in this prestigious neighbourhood in Toronto.
Upscale shopping is the norm in this neighbourhood, with landmarks including York Mills Shopping Plaza, Bayview Village, The Shops at Don Mills and high-end boutiques along Bayview Avenue. It is also in close proximity to Sunnybrook Park and Sunnybrook Stables.
The largely residential neighbourhood of Sunnybrook located south of York Mills has an abundance of schools and parks. Many residential streets in this area are quiet crescents and cul-de-sacs.
