Hoggs Hollow was named after Joseph Hoggs, a Scotsman who settled in the area in 1824. Hoggs was a successful miller and whiskey distiller in the 1820’s. The area completed its development in the 1960’s and remained nestled between Lawrence Park and York Mills, and continues to live up to its reputation as an elite and affluent neighbourhood in Toronto. It is a favourite of those desiring a country feel with urban proximity.
Gorgeous cul-de-sacs with no through ways provide a safe place for children and tucked away homes. Many of the homes were built between the 1920’and 1960’s, and a variety of styles accent the private cul-de-sacs. You’ll come across English Cottage, Colonial, Georgian, Tudor and Modernist. Luxurious homes are positioned on their properties in a way that encourages privacy. Homes are well maintained and new-builds are carefully designed encompassing luxurious extras and amenities.
Foreign investors covet Hoggs Hollow, as its location is appealing and convenient. Just slightly south of the 401, it’s an easy and enjoyable walk to Yonge Street and York Mills Station for commuters. It’s also home to top local schools, including Hillcrest Progressive School.
