Humewood

Overview of Humewood

Humewood is an established family oriented neighbourhood conveniently located approximately fifteen minutes from Toronto’s financial and entertainment districts. There are many amenities such as parks and schools located in the interior of this neighbourhood while shopping and public transit are easily accessed from St. Clair Avenue. Humewood’s intimate streetscape is enhanced by the many tree-lined streets and culs de sac found throughout the neighbourhood. Many of these streets are one-way, with very few through streets, which helps to minimize the traffic flow in this quiet tucked-away neighbourhood.

History of Humewood

The Humewood neighbourhood is named after “Humewood”, the country estate of William Hume Blake – a prominent lawyer and politician in early Toronto. Blake built Humewood in the 1850’s and named it after his ancestral home in Ireland.
The former twenty-five acre Humewood estate was carved into various plans of subdivision in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Humewood Park was part of the old estate grounds and Humewood Drive was originally a private laneway to the estate. The Humewood house was sold by the Blake family in the 1870’s. Shortly thereafter it burned down but was replaced by a similar house built on the foundation of the original home. In 1912 the Humewood house was purchased by the Anglican Diocese as a refuge for young women in distress. It has undergone many renovations and additions since this time however it remains a local landmark, standing proudly at number forty Humewood Drive.

Homes in Humewood

Humewood’s detached and semi-detached houses come in a variety of shapes and sizes. These houses were built mostly between 1910 and 1925 and feature a wide variety of architectural styles including Tudor, English Cottage, and Edwardian style homes. Front porches and expansive dormer windows are characteristic of many of the houses in this neighbourhood. Humewood Court, a culs-de-sac which runs off of Humewood Drive just north of St. Clair, is noteworthy for containing some of the finest Art Deco walk-up apartment buildings in Toronto.
