Unless you live in mid-town Toronto, you might not be aware that the city isn’t entirely pancake-flat. We recently headed up to Keele and Eglinton to check out the neighbourhood of Silverthorn Heights, a new enclaves of freehold houses, and were thoroughly charmed by the rolling hills, dips and twists that characterize the streetscape.

When you live at theĀ Icon Homes‘ project on Ypres Road, the city unfolds around you. On a clear day, you can even see the curves of the Marilyn Monroe towers on the western horizon. To the south, you’ll be able to spy the city centre, which will be just a quick commute away once the Eglinton LRT line is complete.

Here are a few pictures of the neighbourhood immediately surrounding Silverthorn Heights:

Eglinton West

When you call Silverthorn Heights home, you’ll live on a gently sloping street that connects right to Keele Street.

Eglinton and Keele

The project site has been cleared of the former school that once stood at the corner of Ypres Road and Kane Avenue. As you can tell, it’s a quiet, residential area.
