    History Of Parkview Hills 

    Parkview Hills was once part of the vast Taylor family estate. The Taylors moved to the Don Valley in the 1820's and built up a business empire that included a complex of mills and the Don Valley Brick Work's



    The Taylors never settled on this part of their estate however they were involved in the subdivision of land in Parkview Hills. The Taylor family are said to have named Hackberry, White Pine, Alder and Aspen streets after trees that once grew in this area. Presteign Avenue, Presteign United Church, and Presteign School are all named after the Welsh hometown of William Pugh who, along with the Taylor family, subdivided the present day neighbourhood.

    When Parkview Hills first opened in 1947, three bedroom bungalows were sold for around $9,950. The foundations of these houses were dug using teams of horses and there were no paved roads until 1950. Local residents recall swimming and fishing in nearby Taylor Creek up until 1955 when it was deemed to be to polluted for recreational use.


    Overview

    Parkview Hills is a quiet, secluded neighbourhood consisting of a few hundred homes surrounded by lush ravine and park land. The entrance to this neighbourhood would be easy to miss if not for the Parkview Hills stone gates, set-in from St. Clair Avenue. The gold letter inscription on these gates reads 'Parkview Gardens', which is the name of the pretty little park at this entranceway.

    Parkview Hills has an excellent mix of professionals, young families, and retired couples. In particular, there is a large Greek community in this neighbourhood.

    Parkview Hills houses range in style from bungalows, to modest two-storey homes, English cottage style houses, and newer custom designed houses.

    The original Parkview Hills housing stock was built in the late 1940's and early 1950's. All the houses in Parkview Hills are detached with private drives. The lot sizes on average are among the most generous in the city and there are many spectacular ravine properties in this neighbourhood.

    If you're looking for a Real Estate Agent who's professional, courteous, and goes over and above the call of duty for his clients look no further than Mr. Alex Prasoulis. Alex was first recommended to me by a long time neighbor who was moving and selling their home. She praised his integrity and work ethic and it was for this reason that I chose him as my realtor, despite the fact that there was already one living in my own neighborhood. I sincerely appreciate Alex's patience and understanding. When I first spoke with him, I was still in the midst of a divorce, which ended up taking 3 years to complete. Alex stuck with me and maintained communication throughout the process, giving me the time I needed. When the house finally went up for sale, it took Alex less than two weeks to sell it at above asking price. I am extremely grateful to him for all his hard work, and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking an easy and positive experience in selling their home.

    Hi Alex,

    It was a real pleasure to work with you on this. As you can imagine after so long in the house and the parents finally making a decision to sell, it became a very anxious time for them as well as for us. However, you were very helpful, responsive, always kept us posted and helped to answer any questions we had. We were also very impressed that you had a strategy all figured out in which to sell the home. Thank you so much for all your help with this Alex. It has been a little over a week since we initially contacted you and I speak for all of us when I say that you have reaffirmed that we made the right decision to contact you and not someone else. Thank You!
