A neighbourhood that continues to rise in terms of desire and price tag is middle-class eastside neighbourhood of Leslieville. Bordered by the Don River, Leslieville sits south of Gerrard between Broadview and Coxwell.
The housing options in this area are quite diverse and offer something to everyone! From row houses, town homes, semi and detached houses; buyers will find a unique blend of old Victorian and Edwardian homes bursting with character to new builds and condos with every modern upgrade.
Who Lives Here?

What's There To Do?
