Leaside, Toronto

More Neighbourhoods

Leaside is a neighbourhood in Toronto. The area takes its name from William Lea and the Lea family, who settled there in the early years of the nineteenth century.

The typical Leaside home is situated on a generous size lot with a private drive and a garage. Leaside real estate was built largely in the 1930's and 1940's. There is a good mix of two-storey detached homes, bungalows and semi-detached houses. A growing number of Leaside bungalows have had second storey additions, while others have been replaced by new custom designed homes.

During the 1990's a handful of exclusive condominium and townhouse projects have been built on the periphery of the neighbourhood. Leaside real estate also contains some of Toronto's nicest rental apartment buildings, located on the east side of Bayview Avenue and on Leacrest Road overlooking the Don Valley Ravine.
