Deer Park Neighbourhood
The upscale, midtown neighbourhood of Deer Park is a perfect blend of residential charm, lush greenery, and urban conveniences. Named by its original First Nations settlers, Deer Park was once a wide-open meadow where deer would come to graze.
By the 1850’s, modest residential development resulted in a few country homes, a general store, a school and a hotel right on the corner of Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue. Becoming part of the City of Toronto in 1908, the area quickly grew from relative farmland to a desirable residential family neighbourhood, much like it is today.
Deer Park Homes
Homes in Deer Park are a mix of detached and semi-detached, Tudor-style construction, in keeping with surrounding mid and uptown architecture of Toronto’s building boom. A bustling urban centre, Deer Park is also home to a large amount of new townhouses that blend beautifully with the older properties in the area. Boasting one of the largest selections of luxury condo buildings in the city, many Deer Park residents enjoy excellent views of surrounding parklands, ravines, and the downtown skyline from high-rise balconies.
