Built in traditional Georgian, Victorian, and Tudor styles between 1890 and 1930, houses in Lytton Park Toronto feature generous size lots and beautiful tree-canopied streets providing shade in the summer and snowy wonderland vistas in the winter.

Lytton Park Toronto has many well-regarded schools including John Ross Robertson Public School, with one of the province’s highest ratings, and Havergal College, a private school for young women, being the most notable.

Both the Eglinton and Lawrence subway stations on the Yonge line are a short walk to many Lytton Park Toronto homes and regular bus routes also reach the area.
