Attributed to its quiet, unassuming nature, Brockton Village is quickly becoming a coveted neighbourhood for both urban trendsetters and young families looking for a charming, yet affordable, first home. The area’s Victorian row houses create a convivial atmosphere when combined with the influences of the large Portuguese community presence in Brockton’s shopping districts and brightly painted homes.
Residents of this swiftly transforming neighbourhood have plenty of shops to frequent along Dundas West, while Portuguese and Brazilian businesses, sprinkled in between trendy new bars and welcoming brunch spots, offer the perfect combination of adventure and promise.
Much of the original architecture survives so it’s possible to get a historic Victorian gem for significantly less than an equivalent home on the other side of Dufferin.
The influence of the large Portuguese community can be seen in the multi-coloured row houses, semi-detached Victorians, and bungalows nestled up close to each other.
Tree lined streets with modest, well-worn homes offer the perfect opportunity for homeowners who want to evolve their own properties alongside the neighbourhood that surrounds them.
