Atop the hill on Avenue Road Hill sits a beautiful castle for which this post Toronto neighbourhood is named. Castle Loma was built in 1911 by Sir William Henry Mill Pellatt, a prominent financier, industrialist and military man. Nestled on the brow of the Avenue Road Hill, and surrounded by ravines and parkland, this residential enclave looks and feels more like an enchanted forest filled with storybook homes, than the big city neighbourhood it really is. The homes are highly coveted by home-buyers looking for a neighbourhood with character and special features. Homes include an impressive mix of large Edwardian, Tudor, Georgian and English Cottage with stunning landscaping and shaded with lush trees. The area is family-friendly with many amenities close by including gourmet food shops, high end boutiques and all kinds of professional services.
