Christian Matthews : Toronto, Leslieville and East York Real Estate Agent

Summerhill is a convenient and aesthetically pleasing community situated along the popular Yonge Street corridor. Its pretty houses, low crime rate, and central location make it one of Toronto's premier neighbourhoods. These features, combined with the low turnover in its real estate stock, make homes in Summerhill highly sought after.

Summerhill homes provide many gorgeous examples of both Edwardian and Victorian exterior architecture from a century ago. The mix of detached and semi-detached houses range from two to three stories and are predominately brick constructed. The charming and history-laden exteriors are frequently matched with stunning modern renos on the insides, often following serene and chic minimalist interior design themes. Rounding out the Summerhill real estate spectrum is a sprinkling of newer townhomes and upscale boutique condominium buildings.

Part of Summerhill's appeal is its close proximity to downtown, access to the Yonge subway line, and nearby shopping and fine dining. Yorkville's dizzying array of upscale merchants are located just to the south, while the stretch of Yonge Street at Summerhill Avenue provides excellent dining and retail options right in the neighbourhood. Also on Yonge Street is Summerhill's most identifiable landmark, the old North Toronto Railway Station, which is now home to the LCBO's flagship retail outlet. The fine selection of wines and spirits at the Summerhill LCBO are sure to impress even the fussiest of palettes.
