    Buying a home in Newtonbrook

    Originally, Newtonbrook was a town that was bounded by rivers to the east and west; industry relied on the rivers, and because of this, Newtonbrook began as a mill town in the 1800s. By 1950, large swaths of farmland were being bought up and developed for residential housing, and this inevitably led to the demolition of much of the old community, in order to make way for the modern neighbourhood; a schoolhouse and a general store are all that remain of the town.

    In modern day, the mills are gone, and this North York neighbourhood has very different borders — Bayview Avenue to the east and Bathurst St to the west. Even with major thoroughfares for its borders, nature is still a big draw here, and residents have ample outdoor activities available to them; walking trails, playgrounds, soccer fields, baseball diamonds, basketball courts, and several other sports fields.

    Bathurst, Yonge and Bayview are the sites of most businesses in the area; pubs, cafes, restaurants, and retail stores. For shopping, residents can venture to Centerpoint Mall, which has a variety of stores for fashion and technology. Additionally, if you head west on Steeles Avenue you’ll encounter big box stores and car dealerships.

    Neighbourhoods like Newtonbrook have become more appealing in recent years, due in large part to affordable housing prices and quick access to major highways. When touring quiet residential streets, you’ll find a blend of large 2-storey houses, world war II homes, and bungalows. Newtonbrook condos can be found in high-rise and mid-rise buildings, and townhome complexes — providing buyers with plenty of options.

    It’s doubtful that Newtonbrook would be at the top of the list for condo buyers, but there are some excellent options in the neighbourhood; in fact, there are over 30 buildings to choose from, most of which are modern high-rises.

    Newtonbrook condos come in a variety of styles and there’s truly a property for every kind of buyer; budget minded buyers might be drawn to units at Posh Condominiums — don’t let the name fool you, these units are very affordable — buyers who want great value may choose Elm Kensington Residences for their 2000 square foot condos, and those who want modern and don’t mind less square footage, can go for a unit at Luxe II Condos.

    Newtonbrook condos have layouts and amenities that are consistent with most buildings in the GTA — modern buildings have smaller floor plans; 1 bedroom units vary between 500-650 square feet, and amenities include gyms, party rooms, and pools for some. Older buildings offer larger suite sizes, but finishes could be dated.

    Those looking for the most luxurious units in the neighbourhood — and don’t mind high prices tags — can check out 88 North Condos for a stunning townhome.


    Newtonbrook condos provide residents with a pedestrian friendly location; most residents can run errands on foot, although those in more residential areas might need a vehicle or public transit from time to time. While on the subject of public transit, the neighbourhood has great service with bus routes on all major roads, and Finch Station for subway lines.

    Drivers can get where they’re going in a hurry — with the 407 to the north, 404 to the east, 401 to the south, and 400 to the west, drivers have options regardless of where they’re heading.
