Leaside Toronto Real Estate
There is a strong sense of community and real estate here is highly valued particularly with younger families who appreciate the abundance of good schools and recreational facilities.
Leaside Real Estate
Leaside is among the most popular and high-priced districts in Toronto to buy and live. The typical Leaside house is situated on a generous lot with a private drive and a garage. Many of the houses contain beautiful wood trim, hardwood floors and a working fireplace.
Leaside's Tudor-style houses were built largely in the 1930's and 1940's. There is a good mix of two-storey detached homes, bungalows, semi-detached houses, and new custom designed homes.
Today it is in high demand with upper middle income families who regard this neighbourhood as an ideal place to raise children, due to the quiet streets, the fine schools, a great shopping district on Bayview Avenue, and its central location.

The Leaside Centre
The Leaside Centre is a collection of large national retailers located at the south-east corner of Laird Drive and Eglinton Avenue. Next to this Centre is the Leaside Business Park which combines light industrial businesses mixed with specialty retail stores.
The Leaside Branch of the Toronto Public Library at 165 McRae Drive, as well as the Mount Pleasant Branch at 599 Mount Pleasant Road, serve resident bibliophiles.
Much of the recreation in Leaside is suited to children and physical activity. The Leaside Memorial Community Gardens at Millwood Road and Laird Drive is a multi-recreational complex that includes an indoor ice arena, an indoor swimming pool, a curling rink and an auditorium.
