StageCoach Toronto East - in Davisville Village & Leaside
Our two locations are located virtually walking distance to one another in the adjourning Toronto neighborhoods of Davisville Village and Leaside. Both areas are made up predominantly of single-family homes housing upper-middle-class families.
Davisville Village is named after John Davis, who immigrated to Canada from Staffordshire, England in 1840. John Davis served as Davisville's first postmaster and helped found the Davisville Public School. He also operated the Davis Pottery, which became the Village's largest employer.
Leaside first developed as farmland along with Toronto through the nineteenth century. It was incorporated as a town in 1913. In 1967 it was amalgamated with the township of East York to form the borough of East York. In 1998 it became part of the city of Toronto. Our 22nd and current Prime Minister Stephen Harper was raised in the neighborhood.
Central to both locations is Mount Pleasant Road. This shopping district is known as Mount Pleasant Village where you will find some of Toronto's best restaurants and cafes as well as specialty food shops. This stretch of stores is also highlighted by a large group of antique and collectable shops that attract people from all over the city. Home decorating stores, children's clothing and toy stores, a neighbourhood library and an old fashioned movie theatre all add to the ambience of this street. The communities in both Davisville and Leaside are heavily family oriented with several schools, community centres, libraries and sporting venues easily accessible. The average housing prices are between a half a million and one million Canadian dollars.
