Also known as Humewood–Cedarvale, the area is bordered by Bathurst Street, Eglinton Avenue to the north (Forest-Hill North), Winnett Avenue to the west (Oakwood Village) and St. Clair Avenue to the south (Bracondale Hill/Hillcrest). It comprises two neighbourhoods, the wealthy Cedarvale in the north and the upper middle class Humewood in the south. The latter is sometimes nicknamed as "The Woods" because of its many streets that have names ending with "-wood"
Humewood is a middle-class, very family-oriented neighbourhood. Humewood Park was once part of the estate of William Hume Blake, after whom the neighbourhood is named, and is now used as social housing. Cedarvale is a wealthy community, and includes multi-million-dollar homes facing the Cedarvale Ravine that is within the namesake park.
Cedarvale and Humewood are separated by Vaughan Road, however just slightly further east is the huge Cedarvale Ravine, which was once proposed for the route of an expressway, which would have been the extension to Allen Road.
Both areas are wonderful family neighbourhoods with great schools,parks and shopping.They are in high demand and prices have risen dramatically in the last 5 years.Prices range from the Early $600s to well over $3 million for ravine properties.
