    Bronte Neighbourhood

     

     

     

     

     

    Bronte Location:

    Bordered to the South by Lake Ontario, to the North by QEW, to the West by Burloak Drive, to the East by Bronte Road

    Bronte Area Information:

    The former village of Bronte joined the Town of Oakville in 1962.  Originally founded in 1834, Bronte Village’s early roots were as a commercial fishing village.  Over time, a sawmill and gristmill were built.  The village grew and eventually became a commercial harbour in the 1850’s.  Today, the village of Bronte runs along Lakeshore Road between Third Line and Bronte Road.  A fantastic job has been made of the harbour area along this stretch of land which is popular with sailing enthusiasts and tourists.  I highly encourage anyone near Oakville to check out this beautiful part of the town.  Scattered along Lakeshore just one block up from the harbour are a number of retail shops and restaurants.

    Bronte also has a great mixture of old and new with older homes first being developed in the 1950’s with the bulk of development happening in the 1960’s and 1970’s.  A beautiful new neighbourhood known as Lakeshore Woods boasts newer homes with development starting in the early 2000’s.

    The Bronte area has fantastic parkland areas to explore.  Perhaps most noteworthy is Shell Park, a large park with four soccer fields, baseball diamond and large off-leash dog park.  Also in Shell Park is one of Oakville’s two Skateboard Parks.  This 14,000 square foot park includes 26 cement ramps and is open year round (weather permitting).  Skateboard lessons are available in Shell Park through Oakville Parks and Recreation.  Just to the south of Shell Park, right along the shores of Lake Ontario is South Shell Park.  In 2008 the owner of these lands, Palm Place developments, donated land to comprise of the 3.3 hectare park.  The park will include lakefront viewing and seating areas, an extended waterfront trail and an extensive landscaping.   Future park development will add park shelters, washroom facilities, redevelopment of the playground areas and enhanced beach access.  This is sure to be a fantastic area spanning 800 metres of lakefront. Just outside of Bronte, east of Third Line is Coronation Park, another great waterfront area.  Coronation Park offers picnic areas, walking paths along the lake, a bandstand, children’s playground and splash park.  It is also home to Oakville’s annual Waterfront festival, a weekend long event featuring bands, rides, children’s entertainments, craft and wellness centres and food and drink.  

    Bronte Housing Information:

    As mentioned above, the majority of Bronte started development in the 1960’s and 1970’s with a newer development started in the early 2000’s at Lakeshore and Great Lakes Boulevard (known as Lakeshore Woods).  There are a number of condo apartment buildings and townhomes near the Bronte Harbour.  There is also a wide assortment of older bungalows and two storey detached homes in Bronte.  If you are looking for a newer home, Lakeshore Woods has the widest selection to choose from.

    The wide assortment of neighbourhoods, lot sizes, ages and home features lend to large price differences in this neighbourhood.  Condo apartments range from the mid-high $100,000’s all the way to the mid $600,000’s.  Townhomes range from the mid $200,000’s to close to $1,000,000 while detached homes range from around $300,000 all the way to the mid $1,000,000 mark. 

    NOTE: Housing information varies significantly from street to street and month to month in large part due to fluctuating market conditions, desirability and demand for each home.  When it comes to moving into a new home, generalities are not enough which is why I highly encourage anyone interested in finding out specifics about the area to contact a local real estate expert who will customize a home search to suit your needs.  To find out more about my services, follow this link to my website www.lindsaywalls.com
