EAST BAYFIELD / BAYFIELD LINKS
Showing 10 properties out of 10 currently available on the market.
East Bayfield or Bayfield Links is a large neighbourhood of newer homes bounded by the major arteries of Livingstone Street East and Hanmer Street East, Bayfield Street North, and St. Vincent Street. The major north/south artery through this neighbourhood is Stanley Street which starts at the Barrie/Springwater boundary north of Hanmer Street and continues south past Georgian Mall and the East Bayfield Community Centre to Livingstone Street, the southern boundary of the Bayfield Links community.
Around 1824, the Crown granted land typically a 200 acre parcel to individuals who were found to be worthy and capable of clearing and settling the property. The land on which the Bayfield Links neighbourhood has been developed was previously described using traditional Lot & Concession definitions. For example, Lot 18, Concession 4 of Vespra Township was one of these 200 acre properties, as shown on historical County Of Simcoe maps. It fronted onto what is Bayfield Street today and extended half way to St. Vincent Street, backing onto a similar 200 acre property that fronted onto St. Vincent Street.
Commercial development of the narrow strip along each side of Bayfield Street, north of Livingstone Street East dates to the 1940s and earlier. The land behind this strip of commercial businesses fronting on Bayfield Street remained primarily agricultural until it was developed in the late 1990s. New home builders such as Firstview, Morra, Gregor and Pratt as well as smaller home builders including Karvon, Deer Creek, Helicon, Harmony, Fumo, Marcelli, Witty, and DreamLink started to construct the first houses in the Bayfield Links neighbourhood around 1999.

Home to three indoor Shopping Centres (Bayfield Mall, Kozlov Centre, and the recently expanded Georgian Mall) as well as many of the major "big box" retailers, major grocery chains, a full-service Home Lumber Building Centre, and boutiques, virtually every amenity is right at your fingertips.

The clubhouse is an easy walking distance from any point in the Bayfield Links neighbourhood with its attractive selection of downsizer bungalows. Whatever your home buying budget this has been a popular destination for those shifting gears and choosing an "in-town lifestyle".
