8 Reasons You’ll Love Living In Forest Hill!
1 Live in Luxury!
Forest Hill is one of Toronto’s most prestigious districts. From its earliest years, the architectural focus in the community has been on creating Tudor, Georgian, French Colonial and Old English style mansions along its leafy green and “tony” streets. In vogue are mult-car garages, elevators, great rooms, home offices, nanny suites, home gyms and spas, basement recording studios and wine cellars.
2 Eat. Pray. Live.
Forest Hill Village shopping district is centered around the intersection of Spadina Road and Lonsdale. The ambience of this private enclave of stores, is that of a small town rather than a big city. The Village’s boutiques and shops cater to the specific needs of Forest Hill’s affluent Residents. The new and formidable Forest Hill Jewish Centre will be a magnet for many of the community’s religious and family activities.
3 Education is a top Priority
Forest Hill’s public and private schools are among the best in the country. They include 2 of Canada’s most revered private schools: Upper Canada College for boys and Bishop Strachan School for girls.
4 Is fitness important to you?
While there are yoga spots and spas, there are also outside venues to explore! The Belt Line fitness and nature trail follows the route of the former Belt Line railway, which was Toronto’s first commuter train. This 14.5 KM track passes through Forest Hill on its way down to Rosedale. The Belt Line Path is enjoyed by both nature and fitness enthusiasts…year round!
5 Want to join in Community Activities?
Forest Hill Library is not just for taking out your favourite books. It sponsors a myriad of programs for adults, children and pre-schoolers. As well, local synagogues offer extensive programs to the Forest Hill community.
6 Commuting to the office or airport? Not a problem!
Forest Hill is conveniently located within walking distance of numerous bus routes that connect passengers to the TTC subway lines. For motorists commuting in and out of the city, the Allen Expressway is easily accessed from Eglinton Avenue.
7 Shop till you Drop!
Not only can you shop for vintage wines, gourmet food, and fine art in the Village, but you are minutes from the Eglinton strip where you will also find some of the finest childrens’ and women’s fine clothing stores, floral shops and the famous Yitz’s Deli and Phipp’s desserts!
8 I hope you like Gardening/Gardens!
You will see from the pics I’ve posted below that Forest Hill citizens are VERY proud of their gardens. These are just a FEW of the pics I’ve taken while strolling/working in the area. I look forward to my photo safaris every season in Forest Hill.
I love where I live….shouldn’t you?
