Cliffcrest is a residential neighborhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located to the east of the central core, in the former suburb of Scarborough. The neighborhood runs along Lake Ontario to the south and is bordered by Midland Ave. to the west, the Canadian National Railway to the north, and Bellamy Rd. to the east.

Overview

The name Cliffcrest is in reference to the Scarborough Bluffs, which are sandy cliffs along the lake's edge. The neighborhood feels much more like being at a cottage than being in Canada's largest and most densely populated city.

For the smaller cottage-like homes, the average value is only middle of the pack, making it affordable by Toronto standards. Most homes are single, detached houses with a high ownership rate. There are fewer high or mid rise buildings
