Leaside

Welcome to Leaside

A charming neighbourhood dotted with lush greenery and stately homes

Located in Midtown, Leaside is one of Toronto’s favorite neighbourhoods. Rolling with abundant greenery, gorgeous homes, and an elegant, luxurious atmosphere, Leaside appeals to anyone seeking a reprieve from bustling downtown while still keeping access to amenities like great restaurants, boutiques, and community engagements.
 
First founded in the 1800s by farmer John Lea, the name Leaside grew out of an impressive octagonal home his son constructed, called Leaside. Since the 1800s, Leaside has transformed into a destination complete with top-tier public planning and luxuries, particularly in terms of child-friendly recreation and fitness-oriented activity.
 
Between the excellent community and location, Leaside has more than enough to offer. Its homes are no exception. Here, you’ll find a myriad of pleasing home architecture styles. Largely, they are 2-story detached or semi-detached single-family homes, in addition to a newer crop of attractive, renovated bungalows that have been outfitted with more stories. Beyond that, a selection of condominiums and townhouses are also available in the area, giving residents a plethora of options to choose from.

The abundance of street pubs, antique shops, cafes, and more along Bayview Avenue provides a non-stop location for anyone to spend some time with loved ones. Locals are just as likely to unwind in nature as they are to catch up over a delicious brunch. Leaside is one of the best neighbourhoods in Toronto for its ample recreation opportunities.

Bayview Avenue is full of great restaurants, shops, and eateries. Reserve a table at Kintako Japanese Restaurant for authentic, fresh sushi to celebrate any one of life’s best occasions.
