Upper Lonsdale – A Locals Perspective:
Sought after for its big views and big lots, Upper Lonsdale is the more residential part of Lonsdale Avenue located in the Upper part of Lonsdale Ave (Duh). Its close proximity to the mountains lends its residents an idyllic, woodsy retreat right outside their front door (hiking, mountain biking trails, etc). Upper Lonsdale is family & pet approved with all the essentials covered such as Queensdale Market,
Queens Cross Pub & Liquor Store, Harmony Donuts, Starbucks plus a Tims drive-thru. Any additional needs are just a short roll down the hill.
With larger lots comes larger homes – great if your looking for more space and more privacy. Both house interior and lot size/backyard space is typically larger in this neighbourhood. You are likely to find homes with outdoor pools for entertaining or homes backing onto a green belt for privacy up here. Lane access is not common in this neighbourhood making its coach house potential levels low; however, there are plenty of homes with basement suites to help with the mortgage payments.

Harmony Donuts is a cute, little place hidden away along Upper Lonsdale Ave. but they make some of the best donuts around. The donuts are always fresh and have a crunchy outside with a soft cake-y texture on the inside. You can’t go wrong.
