Hogg’s Hollow is an affluent Toronto neighbourhood spread along the Don River. It is bounded by Yonge Street, York Mills Road, and Rosedale Golf Club. The neighbourhood takes its name from the Hogg family who were the original owners of the land. Joseph Hogg settled and established one of the most successful grist mills in the area together with a whisky distillery in the 1820s.
The Hogg’s sons later subdivided the land in the 1850s, but there was little development till the 1920s. Since then the neighbourhood has grown in phases up to the 1960s. And this has seen the establishment of schools, shopping and recreation facilities.
Don Valley offers the neighbourhood a rustic beauty that is further enhanced by the winding crescents, and majestic trees. The natural lush landscape and dale topography add calmness and beauty to the neighbourhood. Homes in Hogg’s Hollow have been constructed over some time and hence vary in design and size. The diverse homes on the beautiful landscape occupy large lots and are among the most expensive in Toronto. These include Tudor, Colonial, and English Cottage, Modernist, Georgian, apartment buildings, townhouses and luxury condominiums.
