LESLIEVILLE

MLS LISTINGS OF LESLIEVILLE HOUSES FOR SALE

Leslieville Neighbourhood of Toronto

Leslieville has the personality of a small village, with tree-lined lots, quiet streets, quaint stores and little shops. It is peaceful and serene, which is uncharacteristic of a Toronto neighbourhood in such close proximity to the downtown core. The main shopping district is located along Queen Street but there is also an area on Gerrard Street, named Little India, which has a prominent East-Indian community and offers a variety of culturally specific shops and restaurants. Among the Leslieville homes for sale is an array of recreational outlets and options, including The Jonathan Ashbridge Park, S.H Armstrong Community Centre, Ashdale/Gerrard Public Libraries, and Greenwood Park, all of which have excellent recreational facilities and offer a number of activities and programs for Leslieville residents.

Housing and Accommodations

Leslieville’s older houses along Queen Street and south to Eastern Avenue were built in the late 1800s and include Ontario cottages, Second Empire row houses and quaint, Victorian houses. The second generation of houses in Leslieville, built north of Queen Street in the early 1900’s mainly feature semi-detached homes, which account for the majority of the Leslieville homes for sale in this neighbourhood. However, there is still a good selection of detached homes and an increasing number of condos available and the area is an attractive option for singles and couples.

HISTORY

Originally a small village in the 1850’s, Leslieville was named after the owners of the Toronto Nurseries, George Leslie and Sons. Most of the first residents were either market gardeners at the Nurseries or were employed at one of several brick making companies that operated in the area. One of the first buildings was the Leslieville Public School, built in 1863.
