Over the past 20 years, Leslieville has gone through a transformation that has attracted a new group of residents to the community.
This east end neighbourhood is close enough to the city for convenience, but far enough away to give it a small town feel while ensuring privacy.
Due to its close proximity to downtown Toronto, it is easy to believe that Leslieville would be heavily congested and full of noise at all times of the day. Fortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. The tree lined streets make for a relaxing, cozy environment that is shared by many.
In the 1850’s, Leslieville was nothing more than a small village with a few residents. At that time, most of the people living in the area were employed by one of the local brick making companies.
Named after George Leslie, this neighbourhood has come a long way in the last 150+ years.
Leslieville is home to some of the oldest properties in Toronto, with many houses on Queen Street constructed in the late 1800’s. From large Victorian homes to Ontario cottages, you will find a variety of styles in this community.
There is another group of homes north of Queen Street. These properties were constructed in the early 1900’s and include both detached and semi-detached homes to go along with an abundance of bungalows.
Home prices in Leslieville are among the cheapest in Toronto, ranging from $200,000 on the low end to roughly $500,000 on the high end.
