Welcome to Forest Hill

Forest Hill falls into the district C03 as designated by the Toronto Real Estate Board, alongside Humewood-Cedarvale and Oakwood-Vaughan. It is located north of downtown Toronto and extends from Briar Hill Avenue in the north to Eglinton Avenue West in the south, and from Allen Road in the west to Avenue Road in the east.

Home styles in Forest Hill are characteristically unique, sitting upon oversized lots with soaring mature trees lining quiet streets. Most of the homes in the area were built between the 1930s and 1950s. It is renowned for its large, stately houses with a stunning variety of architectural styles alongside extensive parks and nature trails. There are also luxury condominium buildings that have been built fairly recently in the western part of the neighbourhood.

Forest Hill is one of Toronto’s wealthiest and most affluent neighbourhoods, being home to many prominent Toronto business people, doctors, and lawyers.

The combination of quiet luxury and stateliness to which most Torontonians aspire has attracted such well-known Canadians as Nelly Furtado, Drake, and Kurt Browning, as well as prominent Toronto families, including the Westons, the Rogers family, and the Rotmans.

Private schools in Forest Hill are highly regarded, and include two of the most well-respected in Canada: Upper Canada College for boys, and Bishop Strachan School for girls.

Shopping in Forest Hill is well-rounded; Forest Hill Village is a quaint area of the city boasting unique specialty shops and boutiques alongside prominent coffee shops and cafes.

Close to the Yonge and Eglinton area of the city, there is no shortage of excellent restaurants, shopping, spas, and entertainment. It has been described as a “city within a city” and topped Toronto Life Magazine’s ‘Ultimate Neighbourhood Rankings’ in the GTA based on measurements that include housing, crime rate, transit, health, entertainment, people and employment. A stroll along Eglinton Avenue West confirms this designation, with a variety of boutiques and various restaurants offering a delicious array of food from many different cuisines.
