This charming and functional three-bedroom, two-bathroom end-of-row home is the perfect balance of Victorian character and modern functionality. Plus, with its unbeatable location just one block away from Queen St E, you’ll have access to some of the best restaurants, bars, and boutique stores in the city, all within walking distance.
As you step inside this inviting space, you’ll be greeted by a sun-filled living room that boasts a south-facing orientation, ensuring that natural light streams in throughout the day. The primary bedroom also features a south-facing window that allows ample natural light, or change to shade with the attractive white shutters. The other two spacious bedrooms are perfect for guests, a home office, growing family, or furry friends.
One of the best features of this home is the ample basement storage space, perfect for keeping your home organized and tidy. The basement with generous ceiling height has been converted into individual usable spaces that can be used as a rec room to watch the game, an extra bedroom, home gym, office, or a spot to showcase your creativity. There’s even a built-in storage area under the stairs (with a kitty door to do their private business), and the furnace room is easily accessible from two sides.
The adorable shutters in the living room and primary bedroom add to the home’s charm and character. The front yard is the perfect spot to sip your morning coffee before a busy work day, while taking in the warm rays of the sun. Don’t worry if you’re not the green-fingered type, because this low-maintenance private, fenced in, backyard is perfect for those who prefer to spend their weekends relaxing rather than gardening. It also features a pull-out privacy screen to keep your bins or bikes out of sight.
But what truly sets this home apart is its unbeatable Leslieville location. Just one block away from Queen St E, you’ll have access to some of the best pubs, restaurants, and boutique stores in the city. Imagine hosting friends for Friday night pre-drinks before heading out for a pub crawl only minutes away from your home! Plus if you get hungry the dining options are endless. From Middle Eastern cuisine at Tabule to tacos at La Carnita or drinks at the Broadview Hotel, the area has something to offer for every taste. And a bonus, Jimmie Simpson Park is just next door, perfect for hungover Sunday walks with your furry friend, a game of tennis with your buddies, or an early morning swim at the Rec Centre.
The neighbourhood is perfect for those who love to walk, bike, swim or run, with everything you could ever need right at your doorstep. And for families, the area offers some of the best schools in the city, including Morse St Jr PS, Queen Alexandra MS, Riverdale CI, and Danforth Tech. Plus a playground steps away.
So, if you’re looking for a functional, charming, and hip home in the heart of one of Toronto’s coolest neighbourhoods, this property is the perfect fit for you.

It’s no wonder people dream of life in Leslieville. Restaurants, bars, breweries, cafes, venues and shops line the main streets (and some of the side streets), all within easy walking distance.
Trees galore, close to Lake Ontario with bike paths, playgrounds, splash pads and off-leash dog areas, this neighbourhood takes family-friendly to a whole new level. The growing condo market has brought a greater mix of people to the area, which was the turning point that took Leslieville from up-and-coming to established.
Once a haven for artists and craftspeople, and before that home to boarded-up shops, working-class families, metal and factory workers and mom-and-pop shops, Leslieville has become one of Toronto’s hippest neighbourhoods. Where once stood abandoned buildings and run-down homes now stand destination-worthy restaurants, European-inspired cafes, upscale clothing stores, revitalized factory-turned-loft buildings, yoga and fitness studios. There is still a laid-back vibe here, compared to the fast pace of downtown life. But don’t be fooled. Leslievillians take their love of the environment, local food, farmer’s market fare and kale very seriously.
