Birchcliff-Cliffside

birchcliff Public School

This is a great family neighbourhood and if you are in the area, park your car at the Rosetta McClain Gardens and walk westward south of Kingston road-you will think you are in a small town and not Toronto.  House values in this community have risen steadily over the last 10 years and 2013 saw an increase of 0ver 17% over 2012…this puts Birchcliff in one of the highest value groups across Toronto.

Most homes in the area are detached and being within the proximity of the Scarborough Bluffs and The Beaches it has attracted the attention of many renovators and builders. This says a lot about this neighbourhood as the newer construction is certainly adding to homeowners property values.  The majority of homes are detached, with private driveways and large lots (compared to surrounding Toronto communities).   In terms of housing styles: bungalows, 1 1/2 storey, two storey and some semi detached homes adjacent to Victoria Park Avenue.   The most expensive and coveted area are homes south of Kingston road and those overlooking Lake Ontario on the Scarborough Bluffs.

Who you see in this neighbourhood are working families, as they make up almost 60% of the almost 22,000 residents (2011 census) who call Birchcliff/Cliffside home.  Check out the most recent sold statistics for the year including July 2015:

Here are some of Birchcliff’s and Cliffside’s schools as well as some best kept secrets:

Birchcliff Public School and Birchmount Park Collegiate Institute

* Explore beautiful botanical Rosetta McClain Gardens

* Stay active at well known athletic facility Variety Village

* Birchmount Community Centre

This is one of the best neighbourhoods in Scarborough and it’s one to watch.  Birchcliff-Cliffside borders The Beaches and here you will find many Beach homeowners move here to get larger detached homes at a fraction of the price they would pay in the Beach.  (Here’s a tip, you will find many Beach realtors live in this area as they understand the community’s value).

A question that is always asked by buyers and sellers is what is the crime rate like.    Check out this link which will provide you a snap shot of types of crimes occurring and the location.  Spot Crime Map
