Baby Point Real Estate

The Baby Point neighbourhood is an exclusive residential enclave found in the west-end of Toronto. It’s on a point of land that borders the Humber River to the west, east to Jane Street, south to Raymond Avenue and St. Marks Road to the north.

Originally a Seneca Village, it was settled by a prominent Quebec fur trader named James Baby (pronounced “Babby”) in 1816 after he discovered the abandoned village that was covered with lush apple orchards and the Humber River was full of salmon. (*today salmon fishing is still popular in the river) The government later acquired this land and resold it to a local developer named Home Smith, who began developing this subdivision in 1912 and later gained notoriety by developing what is now known as “The Kingsway” across the river, along with the Old Mill Inn.

Historic stone gates at Jane St. showcase the entrance to Baby Point, leading to a wide leafy enclave that exudes exclusivity with its stately properties. Grand Georgians and detached Tudors with larger lots are found as you enter this treed and landscaped neighbourhood. Some of the most incredible properties are found in this area and are compared with being similar to smaller scaled Rosedale properties, but with larger lots. Most of these homes were built in the 1920’s – 1930’s and boast period quality details blending with modern restoration and renovations. The smaller and more modest properties are found on the side streets south of this area. These streets are also currently being redeveloped, with many of the smaller houses becoming rebuilt into new construction properties.

The Baby Point residents are also able to join and participate in the private Baby Point Club, with its log clubhouse, 2 tennis courts, lawn bowling and social activities.

Another draw to this neighbourhood is the surrounding parklands and bike trails along the Humber River. Whether walking the dog, running, biking or just strolling along the paths that meander amongst the canopy of trees, the Etienne Brule Park is always a popular place to visit along with the 4 tennis courts and picnic/BBQ areas. The landmark Stone Bridge and Mill were designated under the Ontario Heritage Act.
