In 1998 Scarborough amalgamated with East York, North York and Etobicoke to form the city of Toronto. So, why do we still refer to it as Scarborough?
With the fight on drug control bringing about positive change and lower crime rates, Scarborough has gone through a huge revitalization. From modernizing the Scarborough Town Centre to the expansion of the Eglinton LRT into Kennedy Station, new shops, new restaurants and a new real estate scene are also on the way! There are over 30 stunning, colourful neighbourhoods that can be found here!
Here are 3 Scarborough Neighbourhoods to Consider:
What was once home to the Toronto Hunt Club and cottages, is now a mecca for great cafes, trendy decor and modern real estate! Birch Cliff falls to the east of the Beach . it even has its own waterfront trails and some homes with jaw dropping lake views! The western portion of Birch Cliff was the beginning of the Kingston Road revitalization which brought new businesses, restaurants and condominiums to the community.
Home to the Scarborough Bluffs, this neighborhood was once full of cottagers who would dock their boats at Bluffers Marina! Cliffcrest is now full of new builds spanning from 5,000-8,000sqf in a variety of styles. Whether you’re into modern or traditional, Cliffcrest has you covered.
The Scarborough bluffs are some of the calmest bays in Lake Ontario. They’re the perfect spot for Paddle Boarding, Kayaking or just enjoying the private beaches.
Cliffcrest really feels like country living in the city!
It’s hard to mention Guildwood and not think of the Guild Inn. Young buyers are drawn to this area as they see how far their dollar goes. Built in 1932 by Rosa and Spencer Clark, the Inn was a retreat for artists and craftsmen alike. The inn is now home to a brand new event space and restaurant! The homes of Guildwood were built from the 1950’s to the 1960’s and resemble a strong Mid-Century Modern vibe.
Change Has Begun!
Scarborough has been home to notable residents such as Marilyn Dennis, Jim Carey and Mike Myers to name a few!Massive growth is expected as the food scene develops, new condos are developed and more people work from home! It’s no longer the land of bungalows and strip malls!
