Fly on over to Hillcrest Village, an established neighbourhood just minutes west of downtown. Lush tree-lined streets, older homes and a close-knit community make this enclave feel like a small and vibrant village. Residents love it because it allows them to escape the bustle of the city – without ever having to leave town.
Friendly people, wonderful restaurants, excellent shopping, big green spaces and a hopping (but not intrusive) nightlife make this the neighbourhood Torontonians are “discovering” in droves.
This neck of the woods is comfortably removed from the hectic pace of downtown – without being too far away from the places you love to play. It’s an easy walk or TTC ride to some of the city’s best neighbourhoods.
A mature neighbourhood that dates back to the 1800s, Hillcrest is populated with large turn-of-the-century homes with original character and plenty of charm. Originally a large estate known as Bracondale Village, the area was divided up into an exclusive subdivision called Bracondale Hill Park in 1909. These days, it’s an undiscovered gem filled withindependent shops, great restaurants and excellent green spaces. The St. Clair streetcar expansion has brought exciting new businesses to the area, and people are flocking to this urban village.
