Purchasing a Home in The Beach, Toronto

By in Articles with 0 Comments

Life isn’t always a day at the beach, but when you live your life in the beaches area of Toronto, it’s pretty close.

The Beaches offers you a more laid back lifestyle, a community feeling away from the hustle of downtown Toronto that allows you to get a vacation-vibe right in your backyard.

It’s more of a “Staycation” town that’s only 15 minutes east from Toronto’s core.

There are many perks to living in the Toronto Beaches area.

First, this is a small community inside a large city where people know mostly everyone, especially on their street. Everyone looks out for each other and is proud to keep it clean, safe and tourist friendly.

We feel as if this is our tourist town by Lake Ontario and we love to share it with the world.

It’s a rare place within Canada.

It’s located in the most well-known Canadian city, yet has all the perks of small town life. It’s easy to get involved in the community events and be a part of all the local attractions from the cute parks and shops to the beach activities and neighborliness.

Our local Community Centre 55 is the backbone of the Beaches community as it creates an environment that is friendly and collaborative. Just recently their volunteers painted the flower pots on Queen street in beautiful summer colours and patterns. Just one of the highlights of being a part of the community here.

A stroll along Queen Street East is all you need to clear your mind and get acquainted with the Beaches culture. There is a vibrant cafe culture with yoga and Pilates studios, a variety of restaurants and bars, as well as locally owned markets and shops.

We also have the Beaches International Jazz Festival in the summer — a neighbourhood tradition for almost 30 years.

Living in the pocket of the Beaches can make for a more laid back lifestyle, but that doesn’t mean you are cut off from the downtown core. You can ride the Gerrard streetcar to Main and you’re just a short walk from the Bloor subway line.

The Beaches and Upper Beaches area has everything you need right outside your door to have more of an active lifestyle. From cycling along the waterfront, playing beach volleyball, paddle boarding, kite boarding, wind surfing or relaxing by the lake — you can have it all. Right here in the heart of the Beaches.

So what’s stopping you from moving here?
