With breathtaking views of the Humber River, along with expansive parkland, those who live in Baby Point can enjoy the outdoors year round.
The history of Baby Point dates back to the 1600’s, when the area was a Seneca Nation Village.
During the early 1800’s, after the original inhabitants had moved on, James Baby settled in the area. The neighborhood as it is known today was named after Baby, a successful fur trader.
In 1910, the government acquired Baby Point with the hopes of building a military complex on the grounds. However, these plans were quickly abandoned and the land was sold to developer Robert Home Smith. By 1912, Smith had started to develop Baby Point as it stands today.
Thanks to the location, views, and exclusivity, the homes of Baby Point are among the most desirable in Toronto.
Many of the properties in the area were constructed roughly 100 years ago, however, most have been renovated.
