Bronte Neighbourhood

A pleasant mix of older homes, petite bungalows, newer mixed residential subdivisions and luxury condominiums. 

The Vibe

The commercial fishing Village of Bronte was established in 1834 where the Twelve Mile Creek flows out to Lake Ontario. Today, Bronte pays tribute to its early maritime roots by preserving the feel of a lakeside resort town. Residents and tourists can enjoy waterfront access, a stroll along the pier, unique boutique shopping, and an exquisite meal in one of the many charming restaurants.

A great neighbourhood for retirees, young professionals and families. Downsizers and snowbirds enjoy the convenience of carefree condominium or retirement residence living. Lakefront condo and townhouse views appeal to young professionals seeking great shopping and restaurants at their doorstep. Families can enjoy abundant green space and a choice of house styles on ample lots.

What’s the Bronte Neighbourhood all About

The neighbourhood is a pleasant mix of older homes, petite bungalows, newer mixed residential subdivisions and luxury condominiums. The harbour and surrounding streets showcase executive condominiums and townhomes, often with a premium price, but smaller living space. Older detached, or attached properties radiating out from the harbour are more affordable options for many families. Interesting infill, renovated homes and newer subdivisions along the Lake, with differing price points and house styles cater to modern requirements and aesthetics.

During the warmer months of the year, the main streets of Bronte Road and Ontario Street are abuzz with activity and people. If you prefer a quieter experience, a home in the more residential areas would be your best choice. The waterfront provides everything expected from a lakeside village; dining, shopping, and art and music festivals in the park. Walk along the pier as seagulls glide above the channel and sailboats pass by almost within arms reach, photograph the lighthouse, or take a seat at a picnic table under the shade of towering trees.

Major trails and scenic parks, including skateboard and leash free areas in Shell Park, an outdoor pool, beach, and historical attractions all lie within Bronte’s boundaries.

During the colder months, the lake vistas may arguably be more dramatic than those of summer. It’s the time when local residents get their village back mostly to themselves. The Remembrance Day Parade and Christmas In The Village are highlights of the winter activities in Bronte.

On the practical side, everything needed for daily life can be found along Lakeshore Road. Interspaced between the recognized grocery, retail, banking, professional offices and fast food restaurants, you will discover quaint boutiques, delicatessens and family owned eateries.

Life in Bronte is a mixture of opposites: old and new, vibrant and calming, quaint and convenient … and always a great place to live.

Local Attractions

The Sovereigns, along with other notable families in the area, were instrumental in the shaping of Bronte as a town in Oakville. Sovereign House, completed in 1846 was saved from demolition in 1988 by the Town and the Bronte Historical Society and relocated to where it stands today. Society volunteers manage the house and display centre. In summer, visitors can tour restored rooms filled with artifacts, photographs and historical documents. Of note, Charles Sovereign kept a daily journal recording everything from daily events, finances, local news and gossip. A duplicate copy of this fascinating journal is on display.
