Hoggs Hollow was named after Scotsman Joseph Hoggs, a successful miller and whiskey distiller in the 1820s. The area completed its development in the 1960s and remained nestled between Lawrence Park and York Mills, where it continues to live up to its reputation as an elite, urban Toronto neighbourhood, with a country feel.
In this unique and historically rich area of Toronto, immaculate lawns meet quiet, tree-lined streets. Gorgeous cul-de-sacs with no through-ways provide a safe place for children to play. Many of the homes were built between the 1920s and 1960s, and a variety of styles accent the private cul-de-sacs, including English Cottage, Colonial, Georgian, Tudor and Modernist. Luxury homes are positioned on properties to maximize privacy. Homes in the neighbourhood are well maintained and new-builds are carefully designed. Here there are numerous parks for children to play in and the soothing sound of the Don River, which meanders through the neighbourhood. Hogg’s Hollow is truly country living in the city.
Foreign investors covet Hoggs Hollow, as its location is appealing and convenient. Just slightly south of the 401, it’s an easy walk to Yonge Street and York Mills Station for commuters. It’s also home to top local schools, including Hillcrest Progressive School.
