With notable Toronto Maple Leafs’ alumni like Doug Gilmour and Darcy Tucker calling this area home, it’s safe to say that Leaside and Thorncliffe is a very desirable neighbourhood — and the price of a single family home here reflects that desirability.
Often referred to simply as Leaside, families of all sizes have set their sights on this neighbourhood for its expansive green spaces, respected schools, and commercial amenities, but for some, single family homes are out of reach; fortunately, Leaside condos for sale aren’t nearly as expensive.
The Bayview Avenue strip is where most action takes place here — host to cafes, restaurants, pubs, boutiques, and service based businesses. Big box stores are clustered in the eastern portion of the neighbourhood, as well as a number of specialized stores. There’s also an abundance of natural scenery to see and explore at Crothers Woods and along the Don River.
Prospective buyers have over a dozen buildings to choose from in the neighbourhood, most of which are low-rise and mid-rise structures. Those who are hunting Leaside condos for sale on a budget, will likely find Leaside Park appealing due to its low price per square foot and great location.
On the other hand, buyers with more financial freedom will love the high-end finishes and luxurious amenities at The Upper House Condos, where prices are mostly on par with downtown Toronto condos. Leaside condos for sale at The Randolph are ideal for anyone who needs a little extra space, as these suites range from 819 square feet to 1586.
Public transit users have excellent bus service in the neighbourhood, with easy connections to Eglinton Station to the west or Donlands Station to the south. Car owners can go south on Bayview for the Don Valley Parkway.
