The Beach Homes
Oft likened to a lakeside resort town, The Beach offers a unique connection to the outdoors, combined with everything you'd expect of a top urban neighbourhood. Under eight minutes from Yonge St downtown, but a world apart; it's the only hood in Toronto where you might witness surfers carrying fishtail shortboards along bustling Queen Street, elusive coyotes howling in the Glen Stewart ravine, or a classical guitarist strumming on a boardwalk bench beside the lakefront lawn bowling.
Why The Beach?
Whether young or old, it's a place to lay roots for the long term. Neighbours are friendly and look out for each other. Kew Beach, Balmy Beach, and Glen Ames are just a few of the great schools. Community groups are active in the arts, charitable initiatives, and all sorts of social and recreational activities.
For the outdoors inclined, it's the best neighbourhood in Toronto. Besides beach sports like kiteboarding, beach volleyball, and paddling, there's amazing hill running, a huge skateboard park, organized lacrosse, rugby, beachside clay court tennis, and even golf at The Toronto Hunt.
From big name events like the Jazz Fest and Winter Stations to smaller happenings like the Beach Studio Tour and movie nights in Kew Gardens, the frequent community happenings will keep you entertained.
Homes in the Beach are extremely diverse in architectural style, size, and vintage. Victorian semis, Arts and Crafts bungalows, turreted Queen Anne residences, unique fourplex walk-ups, contemporary homes, and outright modern dwellings are all in the mix, sometimes in the same block! A few small pockets of townhomes and a variety of low-rise condos completes The Beach real estate offerings, and contribute to the eclectic charm of this unique neighbourhood.
