Leaside is perennially one of the top choices in Toronto for those seeking the best environs for raising a family. Quality and comprehensive amenities draw discerning home buyers seeking a safe, family-oriented community.
- Leaside is home to several highly sought after public schools, including Bessborough, Northlea, and Rolph
- Consistencies in landscapes, property sizes, craftsmanship, and built forms give the neighbourhood a well-established, harmonious flow, yet without feeling at all cookie-cutter
- Recreation and outdoor community abounds at the Leaside Memorial Gardens, Leaside Tennis Club
- Main-street style shopping and dining experiences on Bayview, and an increasing selection of large-format stores along Laird
- Faster access to downtown than you think via the Bayview Extension, the South Leaside bus to the St Clair subway station, and the imminent Eglinton Crosstown LRT
The iconic, traditional Leaside home is a two-story, brick, detached design dating from the 1930s and 1940s. Artisanship abounds in the masonry accents, arched and peaked entryways, broad wood trims, and leaded glass bay windows. North Leaside in particular has seen increasing numbers of grand, newly built custom homes, while extensive renovations and footprint expansions are increasingly common throughout the neighbourhood. Completing the real estate offerings are small swaths of semi-detached homes and bungalows, and even fewer townhomes and condos.
