Baby Point is a beautiful area of York near the Humber River is known for its stately homes by developer Robert Home Smith, the businessman and real estate entrepreneur behind the development of The Kingsway and The Old Mill. The area is sometimes referred to as Lambton Baby Point but is not to be confused with the Lambton neighbourhood to its north.
Baby Point is pronounced bobby point after James Baby, a government official who settled in the area in 1816 where it became his family’s legacy until a descendant sold the land in 1910-12. A gate at the Jane and Baby Point access point marks the entry to the exclusive residential enclave of west Toronto. The gateway is a fitting entryway to enclaves of grand and charming homes for sale in Toronto Baby Point.
Baby Point residents enjoy easy access to the commercial shopping and dining districts of Bloor West Village, Annette and Jane Streets. Baby Point is located west of Jane to the Humber River, wrapping around Baby Point Road and Humberview Avenue.
Why We Love Baby Point
You can Move on Up
If you’re into traditional architecture and like living in the west-end of Toronto, Baby Point should be at the top of your Toronto property search list. One of the best things about the area is that you can progress through the various property ladder steps all within its borders. Which means that if you love the area, you never have to leave.
You can still find lovely homes around $800,000 that make great homes for young families. Property values then go all the way up to $2M for the more stately English Manor Houses along Baby Point Road with a range of options in between.
It’s Surrounded by Green Space
Toronto’s Baby Point neighbourhood curves into three green spaces – Magwood Park, Etienne Brulé Park and the ravine overlooking the Humber Rive. Home Smith Park is on the west bank of the Humber River so the views of the natural landscapes are maintained. This is truly one of the most picturesque neighbourhoods in the City. This tranquil vibe translates to the properties in Toronto Baby Point where residents enjoy good-sized lots and quiet, leafy streetscapes.
It’s an Outdoor Fitness Enthusiast’s Dream
Lambton Baby Point is the perfect neighborhood for joggers, walkers, cyclists and dog owners who love to get outside. You can spend hours traversing the beautiful, winding streets and the paved path through Etienne Park that follows the Humber River.
