Yorkville is one of Toronto's most prestigious neighbourhoods. It is a mixture of luxury condominium apartment buildings, commercial office towers, four star hotels, theatres, gourmet restaurants, a prestigious shopping area and picture postcard Victorian homes.
The commercial heart of Yorkville is located on both Yorkville Avenue and on Cumberland Street. The transition to Yorkville's quiet residential pocket is gradual, as Victorian houses shift from retail to residential uses in a seamless pattern that is uniquely Yorkville.
Yorkville's Victorian houses were built mainly between 1870 and 1895. These historical victorian homes exhibit many decorative features including ornamental brick patterns, gingerbread gables, cast iron fences, and richly landscaped gardens. Many of Yorkville's houses are listed on the Toronto Historical Board's Inventory of Heritage Properties
PRICE RANGE OF HOMES FROM $: 530,000 TO $: 2,000,000+++
