The neighbourhood of Thornhill is a mix of condominiums, condo townhownhomes, freehold townhouses and detached 2-storey & bungalows. The area encompasses the East side of what is known as Old Thornhill and has been established for many decades. The condominiums and condo townhouses are closest to Yonge Street and Bayview Avenue while the detached homes are on the inside in between. The condos are available in either one bedroom, two bedroom or three bedrooms, and all the buildings were built at least twenty years ago therefore they have larger interiors. This goes the same for townhouses and townhomes as they have existed for over twenty years as well and come with larger rooms. The caveat about these properties is that many are unrenovated, and many only had one full bathroom for three bedrooms which is not like the newer homes of today. There are many bungalows that still exist in the neighbourhood of Old Thornhill, but many of them have been demolished to make way for new custom homes on these larger premium sized lots that rarely exist today in the city. The bungalows are both older with three bedrooms and approximately 1,500 square feet while the newer ones on larger lots are four bedrooms and can have well over 2,000 square feet just on the main floor. The two storey homes are a mix of older renovated properties and newer luxury homes built on lots where once bungalows stood. The newer homes come with either four or five bedrooms, multiple bathrooms and ensuites on the second floor and many of today's modern features.

The Yonge Street area has an old downtown type feel but was never expanded on and therefore the stores and shops are independent and there has been high turnover. The area though is close to major retail spots including Centerpoint Mall to the South which is anchored by Target, The Bay, No Frills & Canadian Tire. There are also two other malls close by with Promenade Mall to the West and Hillcrest Mall to the North.
