Leslieville was once a sleepy little neighbourhood that finds itself sandwiched between The Beach to the east and Riverdale to the north and west. Technically speaking, Leslieville is actually part of South Riverdale, but in recent years has undergone somewhat of a renaissance and deserves an identity unto itself. Leslieville is bordered by the Canadian National Railway Line and Gerrard Street to the north, Empire Avenue to the west, Coxwell Avenue to the east and Eastern Avenue to the south.
The popularity of Leslieville real estate has exploded in the last decade. What was once a forgotten neighbourhood that one drove through on their way to The Beach or Riverdale – is now a major destination for its restaurants, bars and shops. Many first-time home buyers and young families have flocked to purchase Leslieville real estate because of its relative value in terms of house prices, as well as its proximity to downtown and major highways. Real estate in Leslieville is typically smaller and semi-detached, but with so many gorgeous Victorian style homes on quiet tree-lined streets, it’s not hard to see why Leslieville has become such a popular neighbourhood for affluent young buyers. Leslieville has also been witness to much condominium development. The area was full of old factory and warehouse buildings that have since been converted into high-end loft/live/work spaces.
