Long Branch is characterized by mostly single family homes built at the end of the second world war. There is a good mix of long standing residents and young professional families. This neighbourhood is in transition with many of the older homes being torn down and rebuilt along with new home developments. It’s a fantastic neighbourhood to invest in as there is so much room for growth.
Why we like it:
Long Branch is very much up and coming. The neighbourhood has been in transition for a long time and we are finally starting to see significant changes. The retail on Lake Shore Blvd is finally servicing the community. From the Starbuck’s to the indie coffee shops Long Branch has arrived. Living so close to the lake makes you feel like you are at the cottage with the fresh air breezes. There are lots of lakeside trails and many parks to go for walks in. The location works really well. 20 minutes to downtown by car, 20 minutes to the airport and there is a 24 hour streetcar that will take you into the downtown core. We’re looking forward to seeing what the next few years brings to this beautiful lakeside community.
