Forest Hill is one of the city's most prestigious neighbourhoods, featuring gracious detached homes on large lots, tree-lined roads and crescents, and gently sloping hills. The focal point is still known as "The Village" on Spadina Road where residents gather for coffee and shopping at the gourmet food, hardware, and specialty stores. The area is also noted for its private schools, Bishop Strachan School for girls and Upper Canada College for boys, and its numerous churches and synagogues.
Bounded by Eglinton on the north, St. Clair to the south, Oriole Parkway to the east, and Bathurst Street to the west, the area is known for its Forest Hill mansions. Styles range from traditional Tudor and Georgian to the ultra-modern homes with indoor pools and underground 5-car garages. Prices start about $1.5 million.
