Yonge and St. Clair is one of the city’s most desirable areas in which to live work and entertain. It is an affluent area of sophisticated homes on lovely, upscale streets such as Roxborough, Woodlawn and Farnham Ave. There are also luxury condos in Scrivener Square, Balmoral, Rosehill, Delisle and Avoca. In addition there are elegant co-ops at ‘Granite Place’ and sophisticated townhomes on Balmoral, Oriole Road, Lonsdale Ave and Pleasant Blvd.

The residents are monied Torontonians who enjoy the convenience of living at Yonge & St. Clair. They like to frequent the fabulous array of great restaurants in the area, perhaps play tennis at one of the two private tennis clubs and head for the cottage or ski country on the weekends. They shop at ‘The Five Thieves’ and buy their wine at the LCBO Summerhill. And Yorkville is just steps away!
History: It was the arrival of Mrs. Agnes Heath and her children in 1839 that signalled the birth of ‘Deer Park’ that is bounded by today’s Yonge St., St. Clair west, Oriole Road and Lonsdale Avenue. And once the streetcar line up Yonge Street arrived in 1890, this area started to boom. Yonge and St. Clair became a busy shopping district. The Timothy Eaton Memorial church was built and elegant new apartments started to spring up on St. Clair Avenue West. Today St. Clair & Yonge is a rich neighbourhood of chic boutiques, restaurants and luxury condominiums.
