Summerhill neighbourhood is located south of Deer Park (with Farnham Avenue as the boudary), between Avenue Road on the west end, Balfour Park on the east, and the railroad tracks on the south. The neighbourhood has excellent access to parkland and ravine nature trails.
Its Victorian and Edwardian original homes share the streets, shaded by mature trees, with many modern townhouses and several low rise luxury condo buildings. The property sizes are smaller here than in Rosedale or Moore Park, and many of the homes have only street parking. The neighbourhood is bi-sected by Yonge Street and the residents enjoy easy access to the subway going downtown, and fine shopping and dining at Yonge and St. Clair or in Yorkville.
The neighbourhood was developed in the 1880s, with the establishment of the North Toronto Railway Station on Yonge Street. That station is currently used as an LCBO store, but plans to return it to use as a train station are being considered. It would serve the planned GO Transit line.
Majority of homes are owner occupied. Most of the residents have university or post-graduate education and work in either in management, business, finance or administration. English is the predominant language (97% of households), and about 3/4 of the population is of Canadian, English, Scottish, Irish and British origin.
Average household income is approximately double the city average, and approximately 20% of residents are married over 15 years and have children.
With a walk score of 93, the neighbourhood is considered a 'Walker's Paradise'. The residents have an easy access to three subway stations: Summerhill, St. Clair and Rosedale. Two bus lines run along Yonge Street, streetcars and busses on St. Clair. Two zipcar locations are nearby: one at the Summerhill subway station, one between Jackes and Rosehill.
