South Hill is a unique community located atop the Davenport Escarpment, just north of downtown Toronto, with the tiny Rathnelly district adding to its beauty. This magnificent area, nestled between the rich green spaces of the picturesque Roycroft and Sir Winston Churchill Parks, commands breathtaking views of the city.
South Hill is a prestigious residential neighbourhood recognized for its distinct blend of old-world charm and modern refinement. A balance that is impressively seen in its various architectural styles. South Hill and Rathnelly’s architectural diversity adds to their special attractiveness, ranging from vast Edwardian and Tudor-style palaces to Victorian semi-detached houses to newer townhouse complexes and ultra-modern condos.
The tiny ‘Republic of Rathnelly’ – a historically rich and dynamic enclave famed for its unique, community-driven spirit – is incorporated into the neighbourhood, which emanates character at every step. Rathnelly’s original mid-century middle-class homes have progressively converted into stunning multi-million dollar estates, attesting to the community’s appeal.
