Observatory Hill marketing summary

An Inspired Community in Richmond Hill, Ready to be Explored

Living here will mean living in the immediate vicinity of the David Dunlap Observatory – one of the area’s most treasured historical sites and attractions. It’s a spot that must be seen to believe. It’s absolutely striking in appearance, but perhaps its most important feature is its ability to instil a passion for knowledge in anyone who is lucky enough to experience it.

Tucked away in South Richmond Hill’s last remaining pocket of beautiful, buildable land lies Observatory Hill; a place with an astonishing, inspiring history steeped in astronomy, education, and a simpler more neighbourly era.

Observatory Hill is a community that is part of the Orange Carpet Estates Collection of luxury homes, located in the most desired neighbourhoods across the Greater Toronto Area.
