Welcome to Yorkville

Neighbourhood Description

Shopping anyone? If you are looking for high- end designer boutiques, Yorkville is the place to be. Holt Renfrew, Tiffanys, Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Calvin Klein are only a few of the many fabulous stores in the area.   Enjoy the food specialty stores, elegant restaurants, crowded patios, numerous spas, cozy bars, luxury hotels as well as excellent art galleries and antique shops.  

Proximity to luxury and convenience is a major appeal of Yorkville but its own interesting and attractive pedestrian environment, its small courtyards, alleyways and little parkettes, its closeness to the openness of the Queens Park and to the walking paths in the Don Valley ravine add to the pleasure of downtown living.

Although the neighbourhood itself offers every convenience, Yorkville’s location at the junction of Toronto’s two major subway lines, the Bloor – Danforth line and the Yonge – University – Spadina line provides access to the rest of the city and to the nearby private and public secondary schools. The Don Valley Parkway, a major route out of the city, is minutes away,

Real Estate

Living close to so many luxuries does carry a price tag. Selling prices of houses in the area generally exceed a million dollars. Yorkville’s 19th century buildings are recognized as historically and architecturally valuable and today are the jewels of the area.  Charming old row houses and semis with wrought iron fences around tiny meticulously kept gardens are interspersed with newer town houses. There are pockets of low to mid- rise condos throughout the area and high-end condominium developments along Avenue Road and Yorkville Avenue where three major luxury projects are under construction today.

If you wish to live near this neighbourhood contact Claire for information about The Annex, Rosedale or Downtown. See also Deer Park, Summerhill or Moore Park.
