Leslieville’s Got it All


.

As real estate agents specializing in Leslieville, we like to tell our clients that it is a pretty perfect investment for anyone with an eye to urban living. It has become an in-demand neighbourhood because, while it offers an amazing choice of housing options, it’s not a snooty, hoity-toity neighbourhood where people feel excluded.

Perfectly Situated


.

You’ll find people here from all walks of life, and everyone feels welcome and comfortable. There’s a huge mix of ethnicities and income levels. It’s inviting, well-established and safe.

.

Leslieville is perfectly situated between downtown and the Beach, which means quick and easy access to  the best of what the city has to offer. That includes all the shopping and restaurants of the Downtown Core – which is central to the district’s urban appeal – and is where many of the residents go to work everyday. It also means turning in the opposite direction (heading east) and finding yourself in a very cool, very walkable district with boutique shops, funky restaurants and one of Toronto’s most attractive features – the boardwalk and beach.

.

It balances proximity to the hustle and bustle of downtown with the trendiness of a very appealing destination. And in the middle, Leslieville is not ostentatious, but has a wonderfully diverse selection of quite attractive homes.

Inclusive Character


.

The interesting thing to us is that since it has taken off, Leslieville has developed a kind of character that’s very different from what you might find in the Beach. Much more inclusive. Much more comfortable.

.

The district features row houses, townhouses and beautiful detached homes. There’s such a wide assortment of opportunities, that it’s hard to completely predict what you’ll find here.

.

You can go up and down the streets throughout the neighbourhoods in Leslieville and discover that each street has its own character. Partly because the development has been so varied, and the houses are highly individual, you really get a sense of the individuality on every street. You’re certainly not going to have friends coming over for dinner and not being sure whether to knock on your door or your neighbour’s.

Enjoy the Amenities


.

The area’s main attraction in terms of amenities would be Queen Street, which features a really nice combination of boutique stores and restaurants and eateries. It’s easy to see how the appeal of the Beach district has influenced the development of businesses along the section of  Queen. As well, Gerrard Street offers a very appealing combination of stores and restaurants.

.

Because of the way Leslieville neighbourhoods have developed, the variety of businesses along the main thoroughfares is still pretty clear of the big names that you might expect downtown. It’s more about independent small businesses than branded coffee shops or restaurants. To us, the benefit of this is a real sense of character and variety.

.

You’ll see people from the neighbourhood out and enjoying the amenities every day. There are mothers with strollers, people browsing and enjoying themselves, dogs on leashes and a general sense that this is a thriving and active community.

.

Leslieville is well serviced by public transit, accessible to the Gardiner Expressway as the city’s major east-west thoroughfare, and to the Don Valley Parkway heading north.
