Bordered by Wentworth Street South to Sherman Ave South. Between Main Street East to the Escarpment. The St. Clair neighbourhood is a desirable and sought after area by young families, creatives, nature lovers and professionals. This mostly residential area showcases historic homes, unique architecture and mature trees. St. Clair’s appeal extends beyond its physical beauty, as it’s mostly quiet and has a friendly community feel. 

Each house seems to tell a story, reflecting the individuality and creativity of its inhabitants. This eclectic architecture creates a picturesque streetscape, where every corner offers a visual delight. 2 Storey, 2.5 Storey, Tudor and Victorian style homes, built in the early 1900’s, are the most common type of home found in this neighbourhood. The streets are broad, full of character and charm, making it a dream come true for those who value the harmony of nature, creativity, and urban convenience in their daily lives.
