Homes in Long Branch
The oldest houses in Long Branch are located on Lake Promenade between Long branch Avenue and 38th Street. A handful of these houses date back to the days when Long branch was a resort community. These houses have undergone numerous renovations and additions over the years however they retain some of their original features including whimsical turrets and front porch verandas.Lake Promenade also features prime waterfront properties and a handful of low rise apartment building. The rest of the houses south of Lake Shore Boulevard were built in the 1920s,30s and 40s. These brick and frame houses include detached 2-storey homes, bungalows and semi-detached homes and duplexes. Some of the quaint Turdor and Edwardian style bungalows have been replaced with infill custom designed homes.
North of Lake Shore Boulevard the houses get smaller and the lots narrower. However, there is a pride of ownership stamped on every neatly manicured lawn. New townhouse developments are now a big part of the housing mix in this part of the neighbourhood
