Best For

Middle- to high-income families looking for houses for sale in Toronto in an ideal neighbourhood to raise children. As well, empty nesters with strong roots in Leaside have great downsizing opportunities with the area’s spectacular new Toronto condos and townhomes.


Leaside started to gain in popularity about a decade ago and is now arguably Toronto’s most coveted, prime family neighbourhood. It has great schools, large family homes, plenty of green space, excellent amenities, public transit and a friendly neighbourhood feel. Leaside scores top marks in each of these categories.

Leaside is divided into two areas: South Leaside, south of Eglinton, is the older area with character-filled Toronto homes for sale and a smaller, village-like feel with shops and restaurants all within walking distance. North Leaside is a newer area with more spacious Toronto houses for sale on larger lots, giving it a slightly suburban feel (in all the best ways).

Why We Love Leaside

It’s a Community for Life
Although Leaside has become synonymous with young families, it’s a multi-generational neighbourhood that allows you to scale up or scale down your lifestyle as you age, without having to pack up and move to a different area.

Young families can start small in one of Leaside’s swanky new townhomes and save up for a detached gem to call home for decades to come. Older residents can sell their family homes and downsize to one of Leaside’s well-appointed condominiums, many of which offer fantastic amenities for active seniors. There are also a number of assisted-living retirement homes.

It’s not unusual to see two or even three generations of families sticking close by one another within Leaside’s familiar borders.

You Won’t Need a Rec Room
Leaside is one of Toronto’s best neighbourhoods for recreational activities. Whether you and your family are interested in sports, nature, fitness or even horseback riding, there are so many options for how to spend your leisure time in Leaside it’s almost overwhelming.

Our top picks include Leaside Memorial Community Gardens–a recreational complex including an arena for hockey, skating and curling and an indoor swimming pool–and Sunnybrook Park with sports fields, riding stables and a great running trail.

Its’ Schools Deserve an A
Leaside has a variety of public and private elementary schools that all receive strong scores from the Fraser Institute. Leaside High School (where Margaret Atwood attended) is considered to be one of the best in the city.
