    Buying a home in Long Branch

    The neighbourhood of Long Branch — not to be confused with its neighbours Short Twig, and Medium Stick… no, those aren’t real places — is nestled against the shores of Lake Ontario in the area of Etobicoke. Once a village all its own, Long Branch was incorporated in 1930, and by 1950 most of the modern day neighbourhood was formed.

    For nature lovers, this neighbourhood is reprieve from busy city life. Home to ample green spaces, lakeside parks, and the Waterfront Trail — the natural beauty of Long Branch is on full display no matter where you are in the neighbourhood. There are nearby playgrounds, a dog park, and a hockey arena too.

    On winding residential streets lined with mature trees, you’ll find a mix of world war II homes, backsplits, 2-storey houses, and some Long Branch condos as well. One of the best aspects for families, is that Toronto condos for sale here go for reasonable prices, and this is an area where children can experience the type of childhood that’s been lost for most — running around outdoors, hiking, and enjoying nature.

    Parents have a few schools to choose from for their children, and more in nearby neighbourhoods. Lake Shore Boulevard runs through the area, which is where you’ll find most businesses — salons, fitness centres, retail stores, financial services, and restaurants.

    Condo Life in Long Branch

    The condo scene in Long Branch has grown in recent years, and buyers have a range of options for townhomes, mid-rise and high-rise condos. Long Branch condos are very affordable and floor plans are generous; there are many 1 bedroom + den and 2 bedroom units which are over 800 square feet and sell for the price of a 1 bedroom in downtown Toronto. Properties like Lakeshore Park Estates I Condos and Lakeshore Park Estates II Condos have great value and are well below the price per square foot of units in downtown Toronto.

    You’ll get all the usual amenities with Long Branch condos— gym, sauna, party room, and in some cases a pool — townhomes offer less but provide a more private living experience. All buildings are located on Lake Shore Boulevard, and due to low density residential areas, most south facing units have views of the lake.


    Long Branch condos come with a Walk Score of 72, meaning that most residents can run errands on foot. Most of the neighbourhood has reasonable access to public transit; there are buses and streetcars on Lake Shore Boulevard, and Long Branch Station is on the north-western edge of the neighbourhood for GO Transit.

    Car owners have options here as well — a trip east on Lake Shore will lead you to the Gardiner Expressway, and a trip north on Brown’s Line will have you on the Gardiner Expressway or Highway 427 in mere minutes.
