The neighbourhood of Chestnut Hills can be found in the city of Toronto, Ontario.


Chestnut Hills provides home buyers with the choice between a variety of methods of transportation. Travelling on foot is reasonably convenient for house buyers in this part of the city; running daily errands is easy by walking. However, this area is not especially bicycling-friendly because the bicycling network is sometimes poor, and bicycle riders are faced with quite a few elevation changes. Thanks to a few nearby bus lines, commuting by public transit is straightforward in Chestnut Hills. Travelling by car is also easy in this area. It is convenient to access a parking spot.


Both general and specialty grocery stores are typically accessible within a short walk from most houses for sale in Chestnut Hills. Likewise, this area is a fairly good place in which to go out to eat or go to a cafe. A decent selection of clothing stores is also located within a rather short walking distance.

The character of Chestnut Hills is exemplified by its relaxed environment. The noise levels in this neighbourhood are quite low, as the streets are generally reasonably calm - although there are still several noisier sections, especially near the railway line. Lastly, greenery is very prominent in this part of Toronto; there are approximately 10 green spaces close by for residents to discover, like Tom Riley Park, and they are very well-spread out, which makes them very easy to access. Furthermore, residents will find that the tree canopy coverage for most streets is excellent.


About two thirds of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners whereas renters occupy the remainder. Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing the majority of buildings in this area, and the rest of the properties are mainly large apartment buildings and small apartment buildings. This part of the city experienced its main construction boom pre-1960, so most of the available housing is from this era. This area has a good selection of unit sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
