Additional Information:
Leaside has a reputation as an outstanding residential community to raise a family. Beautiful spacious houses on lovely tree lined streets adorn Leaside, along with vibrant shopping streets, schools, churches. It is made up predominantly of single-family homes housing upper-middle class families. The 22nd and current Prime Minister Stephen Harper was also born and raised in Leaside.

Community
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.
