Bridle Path 

One of the city’s most coveted enclaves, The Bridle Path is revered internationally for its expansive and lavish properties. With a high volume of homes boasting multi-acre lot sizes, long frontages and gated driveways, The Bridle Path is well-suited to affluent buyers seeking total seclusion. Developed with privacy in mind, very few roadways pass through the neighbourhood, contributing to The Bridle Path’s quiet, tranquil atmosphere and exclusive status. 

Bennington Heights

One of Toronto’s most secluded upscale neighbourhoods, Bennington Heights is home to some of the city’s most affluent residents. A neighbourhood carved from the original shoreline of Lake Iroquois, Bennington Heights is bordered by the Don River Bluffs and Moore Park Ravine. These naturally-gorgeous landmarks nicely separate Bennington Heights from the surrounding urban landscape, offering residents a remarkable degree of privacy. Within the neighbourhood itself, wide streets, mature trees, and large frontages create a quaint yet close-knit community ambience. 

Alongside their stunning homes and distinctive residents, many of the city’s most exceptional neighbourhoods also boast storied pasts. For a unique glimpse into the heritage of Toronto’s upscale communities, explore these blog posts. 


Considered one of the most revered neighbourhoods in Canada, the historic and elegant Rosedale represents the epitome of upper-echelon living in Toronto. Although the community lies not far from the bustling downtown core, Rosedale’s winding streets, exceptional homes, and tall, mature foliage create an air of seclusion and privacy. While proximal to a wide range of upscale urban amenities, the neighbourhood’s remarkable degree of privacy has made real estate in the area some of the most sought-after in the country. Over the past several decades, residents’ long-term commitment to the community has allowed Rosedale to preserve and nurture its distinct atmosphere. 

Moore Park

Moore Park is a historic and prestigious neighbourhood that combines natural beauty with upscale suburban-style living. Located directly north of Rosedale in midtown Toronto, Moore Park is surrounded by beautiful parks and green spaces, putting the community in the heart of an immersive natural paradise. The low-density neighbourhood is abundant with stately Georgian and Tudor-style homes, most of which are nestled on secluded and spacious lots. Residents take full advantage of Moore Park’s organic privacy, frequenting nearby outdoor spaces such as the Park Drive Reservation Lands, Moore Park Ravine, and Vale of Avoca.
