Thorncrest Village Real Estate Overview

Surrounding communities might be of interest as well:

Architected and planned by Eugene Faludi, the entire area was once considered one of the first modern suburbs to have come up in Toronto.

Thorncrest Village gets its name after the erstwhile summer house of Sir William Pearce Howland, one of the first Lieutenant Governors to have served Ontario. The Thorncrest house, constructed in 1854, continues to stand on a site that is set back from the main street at 36 Rathburn Road.

Developer Marshall Foss bought the Thorncrest estate in 1944 and laid the foundation of the present-day Thorncrest Village neighbourhood. The community was shaped following the idea of the renowned Country Club subdivision of Kansas City in the United States.

Thorncrest Village is credited with introducing the idea of having an active homeowners association, restrictions on neighbourhood zoning and buildings, curvilinear and cul-de-sac street patterns, as well as a focus on the conservation of nature. Faludi garnered widespread accolades for his work in the neighbourhood and was subsequently called to design many other Torontonian communities.

The non-profit Architectural Conservancy of Ontario published an article in 1984 and claimed that the real appeal of the neighbourhood lies in its apparent randomness. The neighbourhood's streets follow the natural terrain, with varying setbacks, well-preserved wooded lots and new shade trees reaching substantial heights. The best part: the community has well-defined boundaries, and residents can always tell that they in a special place.

Thorncrest Village Homes Are Not So Perfect For

The Thorncrest Village neighbourhood is not the perfect neighbourhood for anyone who enjoys the nightlife of the city center. The community undoubtedly has a close-knit feel, but those concerned about personal space may find this slightly intrusive.
