Welcome to Casa Loma
Elegant and exclusive, this stunning community offers an escape from the ongoing hustle and bustle
Named after the striking medieval castle built by Sir William Henry Mill Pellatt in 1911, this beautiful community is one of Toronto’s most prestigious and expensive neighbourhoods. Home of some of Toronto’s wealthiest families for decades, walking through Casa Loma feels more like stepping into a fairytale village than a part of Toronto. However, the community’s ideal location allows homeowners to quickly make their way into the city center at any time. As a result, residents enjoy the best of both worlds; a quiet suburban lifestyle and the ease and convenience of big city living.
Homes in Casa Loma live up to the grandeur and splendor of the namesake castle. Tudor, Colonial, and Georgian-style homes can be found throughout, each and every one finished with the highest quality touches. Of course, the landscaping in this neighbourhood is pristine, with homeowners taking great pride in their perfectly manicured lawns and tended gardens.
What to Love
- Upscale community filled with considerate neighbors
- Ideal location just outside central Toronto
- Stunning single-family homes
Casa Loma is strictly a residential area, with homeowners making sure the rural splendor they’ve come to enjoy is maintained year after year. As a result, the community itself is especially quiet, with very little going on other than friendly neighborly conversations and walks around the neighbourhood.
For this reason, the nearby lively and upscale community of Forest Hill is often frequented by Casa Loma residents who enjoy the high-end restaurants and trendy cafés lining its streets. Here, residents enjoy a plethora of recreational activities such as parks, green spaces, and walking trails.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
While the surrounding communities such as Forest Hill and Rosedale offer a number of dining destinations and shopping opportunities, residents of Casa Loma happen to have some of the most exceptional and highly rated restaurants right in town.
The castle of Casa Loma offers a variety of dining options right within its beautiful stone walls. When residents feel like dining al-fresco, they can stop by The Gardens at Casa Loma. Sitting right in the middle of the award-winning estate gardens, guests can enjoy exquisite dishes like yellowtail snapper ceviche, grilled lamb chop Nicoise, steak frites, and lobster ravioli. The Liberty Caffé is a fantastic place to grab a morning coffee or an afternoon pasta. One of the more laid-back eateries in the castle, their menu includes Canadian bacon BLTs, poutine, and home-baked cookies.
When residents are in the mood for a truly refined dining experience, Blueblood Steakhouse exceeds all expectations. Widely considered the top steakhouse in Toronto, this award-winning restaurant astounds guests with every visit.
A culinary experience like no other, Michelin Star-rated Don Alfonso is not to be missed. Located in the castle’s conservatory, guests dine underneath a stunning stained glass ceiling. The restaurant offers both a tasting menu and ala carte service, and their ever-changing menu consists of delights like an ice-creamed eel with sturgeon caviar, seared duck breast with mashed gala apples, and a mouthwatering risotto with langoustine.
Things to Do
Casa Loma residents can enjoy a number of beautiful parks and recreational areas right within the community in their free time. Sir Winston Churchill Park is a wonderful place to spend the day. They offer ten fully lit outdoor tennis courts, a state-of-the-art children’s playground, and a pristine walking path for those evening strolls. Wrapping around the park is the Nordheimer Ravine, a stunning natural oasis with paths running through some of the oldest oak groves in the area. Wells Hill Park is another fantastic place to visit, especially with children who will love the beautiful playground with sandboxes and a wading pool.
