Summerhill: an old-school residential neighbourhood that epitomizes urban life at its best and which today is highly regarded as one of Toronto’s most desirable places to live. With its village-like atmosphere, here’s a strollable community of specialty stores where an artisan loaf, and a rare vintage can be found along with those many cafés, bars, restos that make life in this neighbourhood a sensory and social delight.
An exceptionally elegant community of nineteen townhomes scaled to fit the surrounding neighbourhood and expressing, a distinguished and beautifully crafted design signature. On the inside: airy, naturally lit spaces that exalt the art of modern living while seamlessly bringing together form, function and every convenience (including something we now consider a luxury essential – a private elevator.)
When the word “exclusive” enters the design conversation three names invariably crop up: Richard Wengle (architect), Brian Gluckstein (interior design) and Ronald Holbrook (landscape design). At Charbonnel the combined sensibilities of this elite team create a comfortable, visually appealing home that resonates with today’s love of melding the traditionally classic with the coolly contemporary, comfort with convenience, all delivered with this team’s perfectionism.
A residential development company that stands behind its philosophy of quality, craftsmanship, and dedication to perfection, Treasure Hill takes its responsibilities as a community-builder seriously. First by finding locations that are unique and desirable, and then by ensuring the community is one that respects – and reflects – the neighbourhood. This is what Treasure Hill aims for, and what they, with consummate elegance and care, consistently achieve. Charbonnel is an excellent example of this.
One distinct asset of Charbonnel is its location adjacent to the Oaklands Campus of De La Salle College. Not only does this assure a lush wooded habitat with its majestic oaks next door, but it also served as an inspiration for Charbonnel being named after Francois-Marie de Charbonnel, Bishop of Toronto between 1847 and 1860. Bishop Charbonnel was also founder of the Lasallian Brothers in North America and in 1851 founded the De la Salle School as well as many other educational and important institutions in Toronto.
