Hoggs Hollow Neighbourhood
A picturesque and relatively untouched neighbourhood, Hoggs Hollow reflects the rustic beauty of the Don River, which flows through the area en route to Lake Ontario. Winding avenues, quiet crescents and cul-de-sacs define the neighbourhood, providing a sort of country charm in the heart of uptown Toronto.
Hoggs Hollow was named for the area’s first settler, James Hogg who was a successful miller and whiskey distiller in the 1820’s. Since those days, when the area north of Yonge Street and Yonge Boulevard was nothing but farmland, this quiet enclave nestled between Lawrence Park and York Mills has become a favourite of those desiring a suburban feel with urban proximity.
Hoggs Hollow Homes
Set in a lush landscape, relatively close to its natural state, the hills and dales of Hoggs Hollow provide detached two and three-storey properties with private lots and breathtaking ravine and downtown skyline views. Built up slowly between the 1920’s and 1960’s, the home styles have resulted in a mix of English Cottage, Tudor, Colonial, Georgian, and Modernist architecture. Blending seamlessly with the quiet charm of the area’s natural foliage, picket fences and painted windows are popular on the sidewalk-free avenues of Hoggs Hollow. In addition to these sprawling detached offerings, a small number of luxury condos and townhomes are available at the top of Yonge Street’s hill.
In a nod to its long history of farmland north of the city, four original Hoggs Hollow homes have been preserved; two of which are former mill worker cottages that have been moved to the west side of Yonge Street and serve as the entrance to upscale restaurant and neighbourhood institution, Auberge du Pommier.
