Named after the Summerhill House built in 1842 by Canadian transportation baron Charles Thompson, Summerhill has become one of Toronto’s most preferred neighbourhoods. Conveniently located along the major arterial route Yonge Street, its residents are just a few minutes’ drive away from downtown Toronto’s business and entertainment districts.

Summerhill is bounded by Ramsden Park, Yonge Street and the Yonge-University-Spadina Subway line to the south, David A. Balfour Park and Rosehill Reservoir to the east, Farnham Avenue to the north, and Avenue Road to the west.
