Yonge & St. Clair

True to its origins, Yonge & St. Clair (or Deer Park, officially) remains an upper-middle-class residential district. And, throughout the years, its eclectic mix of detached and semi-detached homes, showcasing a variety of architectural styles, have boasted notable residents such as pianist Glenn Gould, founding Group of Seven member J.E.H. MacDonald and writer Farley Mowat. Today, a growing number of luxury condos bring picturesque views of the surrounding green space, including the Belt Line trail and the ravine. In addition to its own thriving strip—one of Toronto’s busiest shopping, entertainment and business districts—the neighbourhood’s proximity to the likes of Forest Hill and Rosedale only adds to the charm.
