Hogg's Hollow


Hogg's Hollow is named after James Hogg, an eccentric man who wore many hats. James was a successful mill operator, tavern owner and an ambitious entrepreneur. In the mid 1800's he bought up all the land at Yonge and York Mills, the area where he had been working and living for several years. Being such a prominent figure with a sincere love of the area, his name became synonymous with the terrain at Yonge and York Mills. In 1853 he built the James Hogg Tavern, a structure which still stands today. Formerly known as the Jolly Miller, it has a colourful past, including being a popular speak-easy during the prohibition era. Only a few of Hogg's Hollow's original log cabin style homes have been preserved. Two of which are incorporated into the renowned Auberge du Pommier restaurant, just two minutes from Hogg's Hollow.


Hogg's Hollow is an enchanted place set amongst the rustic beauty of the Don River Valley. Winding crescents and private cul de sacs are adorned by majestic trees with the Don River gently meandering through.
First class amenities are at its doorstep including grocery stores, clothing stores, professional and medical offices, along with excellent dining. Golf enthusiasts can walk to the scenic Don Valley Golf Course.
Hogg's Hollow hosts its own "Community Fair" once a year. Residents enjoy walking paths by the river, tennis courts and an outdoor skating rink in the wintertime.


With only about 300 homes, Hogg's Hollow is one of Toronto's most expensive neighbourhoods. The homes were built between the 1920's and the 1960's along with some recent redevelopment. They enjoy a variety of architectural styles including English Cottage, Colonial, Georgian, Tudor and Modern. Most are on expansive lots set amongst a lush landscape left in its original state and without the intrusion of sidewalks.
