The neighbourhood

Carefully blending past and present, historic Bronte is transforming itself into a vibrant residential community. Older houses and small cottages surrounding Bronte Harbour are gradually giving way to custom-built estate homes, many on premium waterfront lots. New subdivisions of single and semi-detached homes, condos and townhomes offer affordable choices to buyers looking to trade big city living for views of the lake, close proximity to quaint shops and boutiques, and peaceful walking trails along Lake Ontario.

The amenities

The rich history of Bronte Village and waterfront appeal of Bronte Harbour and Marina make this community a popular tourist destination and go-to place for boaters and nature lovers. Seniors are well accommodated by a variety of choice retirement residences, and excellent schools and other essentials satisfy young families. Centrally located Shell Park offers residents rambling green space as well as first class facilities for soccer, baseball, and BMX/Skateboarding.
