A Charming Retreat in the Desirable Leslieville ‘hoodSend This Listing To A Friend
At 65 Leslie, you have the power to create your dream life. This 3-bedroom, row townhome is rich in functionality, easy to maintain, and has the ability to match your lifestyle at any stage.
Tucked off the main strip, you are nestled into a spacious and less hectic stretch of Leslieville, on a family-friendly street. The little details have been taken care of with updated front steps and railings, to the newly poured cement pad off to the side of the home. The perfect place to neatly tuck away your garbage collection bins.
Walk up the front steps into the sunny and spacious mudroom. Organize your jacket and shoes before heading into the cozy abode. A true shoe lover’s heaven – with this additional storage space, you can justify buying that extra pair of shoes to add to your collection.
Head into the open-concept living and dining room. Whether you’re hosting friends for a drink before heading out to the local breweries, or having family over for Maker’s pizza, this space comfortably accommodates all.
On nights you wish to cook in (trust us, it’s hard when you’re in this ‘hood), the kitchen is equipped with tons of counter space. All of the appliances have been upgraded to stainless steel.
The renovated hardwood staircase leads you to the upper level of the home. Here, you find a four-piece bathroom, and three comfortably sized bedrooms. Whether it’s a room for your office, children, guests, or Peloton, the space is yours to customize.
Downstairs, the basement is partially finished and features an additional bedroom/workout room/office, a bar area and bathroom with a stand up shower.
Experience privacy in your fully fenced-in, spacious backyard. The large wooden deck is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee, or host a summer BBQ. You also have access to your very own parking pad off the back.
Leslieville gives you a neighbourhood feel that you just can’t beat. Enjoy one-of-a-kind restaurants like Gare De L’Est, NutBar, Barrio Cerveceria, Core Korean Kitchen and more. With local bakeries like Brick Street, and cafés like Purple Penguin or Pilot Coffee Roasters, supporting small businesses is the way of life here. Got a sweet tooth? Be sure to check out Craig’s Cookies or Ed’s Real Scoop! And if you’re craving a cold one, breweries like Eastbound, Saulter St. and Avling are all a short walk away.

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.
