Families looking for Toronto homes for sale in an area with a small village feel, reminiscent of bygone eras - if you're willing to go just a little further north, you'll find it here.
Henry Farm is a small, residential enclave north of Highway 401 but what this tiny neighbourhood lacks in footprint it makes up for in charm.
Henry Park is big on community. Buyers looking for houses for sale in Toronto in an area that feels like a small village in the big city will love Henry Farm. Yet for all its small-town feel, it’s just minutes to major arteries in and out of the city and great amenities like Fairview Mall. We dare even the most "North York adverse" not to fall in love with this neighbourhood.
As its name suggests, Henry Farm was once farmland owned by a man named Henry – Henry Mulholland, an Irish immigrant who settled the land in the early 1800’s. The land changed hands over the years but was reacquired by Henry’s great grandson George Henry in the late 1800’s. He then sold it to developers in 1958 at the age of seventy-seven when he was no longer able to care for the land.
George Henry tragically died just days after the transaction at his farmhouse Oriole Lodge which still stands as a private residence. The land was then developed into the quaint residential neighbourhood it is today.
