The Springbrook Gardens/Norseman Heights neighbourhood runs south of Bloor to The Queensway and from the Mimico Creek to just west of Islington.

The area is serviced by the Islington subway station and is easily accessible to the Gardiner Expressway.

It is a very small, exclusive enclave of homes with most of the homes being very distinctive in their style.  The neighbourhood was designed with deliberate attention to detail to ensure large lots, southern exposure, green space and traffic & speed control.  There is a Thorncrest Homes Association which continues to support the country-like setting and architectural integrity of the neighbourhood.  Resident members of the association have access to the recreation centre, which includes a clubhouse, swimming pool, tennis courts and playground.

Chestnut Hills runs east of Islington to Royal York and north of Dundas to Edenbridge.

The streets in the area are windy and the homes beautifully situated away from the streets.  There are quite a few new builds in the Chestnut Hills area, but there are just as many original homes, many of which have gone through major renovation.

Humbertown Shopping Centre has received final approval for re-development, which will include a new mall, green space and multiple townhome and condominium complexes.

Public Schools:  Humber Valley Village Jr. Middle School

Recreation:  Chestnut Hills Park, Humber Valley Park & Rink, Humbertown Park

  • Lincoln Woods

Lincoln Woods runs east of Royal York to the Humber River, but north of Edenbridge, it also includes the area just west of Royal York.  It runs north of Dundas and south of Eglinton.

Again there are an equal number of new builds and original homes in this area, but the homes in this area tend to be larger and more sprawling and situated on beautiful big lots.  There are many multi-million dollar homes located in this area, particularly those backing onto the Humber Valley ravine and St. George’s Golf Course.

The homes in Princess Anne Manor tend to be ranch-style bungalows or side and back-splits, located on wide lots with attached double garages and private drives.  The width of the lots is conducive to swimming pools so you will find plenty of pools in this neighbourhood.  The homes in Princess Gardens are of a similar style to the ones in the Manor, but the lots are generally a bit smaller and the homes slightly less expensive.
