Hogg's Hollow

Nestled in the quietly pretty Don River Valley, just east of Yonge Street and south of York Mills Road, you'll find an idyllic neighbourhood filled with charming homes on winding, tree-lined streets and quiet cul de sacs.

The area is named for James Hogg, a Scottish miller and distillery operator who settled the area in 1824. In 1856, his sons John and William Hogg subdivided their father's estate, calling it Hogg's Hollow. A few houses went up (only four of which are still standing), but the neighbourhood as we know it today didn't start being built until the 1920s.

Homes were built in Hogg's Hollow over 40 years. As a result, you'll see a real variety of styles ranging from English Cottage, Tudor and Colonial to Modernist. More recently, luxury townhomes and condominiums have been added to the mix.

Get some fresh air in York Mills Park or on the Don Valley Golf Course. Or wander over to the mall - the York Mills Centre, with a variety of shops and services, is a walk away for most residents. So is the Loblaws Superstore on Yonge.

Every year, residents put on a community fair in Brookfield Park with rides, events, food and plenty of fun. Area events are regularly posted on signposts and the community bulletin board in Millstone Park.

York Mills subway station is also a short walk - if you need to drive, the 401 is a few minutes to the north, while Yonge Street offers a direct route to downtown.
