Decided that you would never move farther east than the Beach(es)?! After seeing the Birch Cliff area you might rethink that decision. Birch Cliff is an amazing place to raise a family and one of the city’s best-kept secrets. After all, who wouldn’t want to own a house close to the water and the bluffs?
Located in the southwestern part of the old city of Scarborough, Birch Cliff borders the shores of lake Ontario and sits on the western part of the Scarborough bluffs. Its bounded by Victoria Park Avenue to the west, Danforth Road to the north, and Lake Ontario to the east and south.
Birch Cliff gains its name from one of the first cottages built in the region – just outside of the Toronto Hunt Club. The neighbourhood exists in the state it does today because of the Toronto Hunt Club – built in 1895. The natural ravines, forests, streams, and wide open green space, running along the shores of lake Ontario, made for the perfect golf club setting. But, after World War 1 the golf club had to sell off a large chunk of its land. This created a prime real estate opportunity, not to mention an idyllic setting to raise a family. Today, residents appreciate the area’s scenic views, prime location not far from the Scarborough bluffs, and tree-lined streets.
Two distinct areas within Birch Cliff include the “Fallingbrook” community, located west of the Toronto Hunt Club and to the south of Kingston Road, and the “Birch Cliff Heights” community, situated on the north side of Kingston Road, between Birchmount and Kennedy Roads.The ‘Fallingbrook’ pocket of Birch Cliff has some of the most sought-after homes in the eastern side of the city. Homes in the Fallingbrook pocket often back onto a lush ravine landscape and catch scenic window views of Toronto Hunt Club.
Homes in the Birch Cliff neighbourhood are mainly bungalows (often referred to as “Birch Cliff bungalows”) and new builds. But there are still character homes, such as original cottage builds, that become available. Evidence of increasing affluence can also be seen in many bungalows that have been topped-up, to make 2 story homes.
Winding tree-lined streets and perfectly manicured lawns make Birch Cliff the perfect place for children to run, play, and explore, in this family-oriented area.
