Nestled between two golf clubs—St. George’s in the northwest and Lambton just across the Humber River—this is a country club–like area, with large lots, spacious homes and tree-lined streets, many of them still without sidewalks. The prices match the surroundings. The houses on Edenbridge Drive, which skirts the Humber River parklands, average around $2.5 to $3 million, though some ravine-lot mansions can climb as high as $7 million. Thanks to half-acre yards and nearby James Gardens and Lambton Woods, many of the leafy streets are decked out in deer crossing signs. The region’s many affluent families love the area for its shops (Humbertown Shopping Centre), one-stop schooling (junior kindergarten to Grade 8 at Humber Valley Village Junior Middle School) and tranquility.
