Summerhill is a very desirable neighbourhood that’s located next to some incredibly desirable neighbourhoods — which is basically the holy grail for neighbourhoods. Condos for sale in Summerhill come with the bonus of easy access to fine dining and boutique shopping in Yorkville, bars and cultural exhibits in The Annex, and all the exciting attractions of Yonge and Bloor.
This neighbourhood offers a great balance of quiet and convenience — being bounded to the east by Yonge Street and David A. Balfour Park, and to the west by Avenue Road, means that residents have dining, nightlife, and nature, all within their own neighbourhood; including Yellow Creek and the David Balfour Park Trial which extends through to the Rosedale Ravine Lands.
As Summerhill is a small neighbourhood, there are only a few schools within its borders; however, there many well-regarded schools in neighbouring areas. Businesses are clustered around Yonge and Avenue Rd — salons, wellness centres, corporate offices — and conveniently located shops make it easy to accomplish errands within the neighbourhood.
With over 10 condo buildings in the neighbourhood and more in development, buyers have plenty of choice in Summerhill; condos for sale in Summerhill can be found in mid-rises, low-rises, high-rise buildings, and some very swanky loft conversions — Macpherson Church Lofts is one of the most impressive conversions in the city, but these spacious suites come with intimidating price tags.
Buyers who want the most bang for their buck will find 423 Avenue Road Condos to be very appealing, as all suites are in excess of 1200 square feet. Although, regardless of the building, floor plans are often spacious here; particularly in condos such as The Oaklands Condos, where 2 bedrooms + den units are over 1700 square feet.
Toronto condos for sale in Summerhill are perfect for buyers who don’t need to have the kitchen sink thrown at them when it comes to flashy extras; amenities tend to be humble in Summerhill, but there are some buildings which offer the usual extras like party rooms and fitness centres.
