A small farming community until the early 1900's Ledbury Park's first houses were built along Bedford Park and Woburn Avenues, on the site of the old Lawrence farm.
The Ledbury area north of Woburn Avenue had been the former hobby farm of Alfred St.Germain. The St. Germain property was subdivided in 1922 by the Melrose Realty Company under the name Melrose Park.
Ledbury's residential development was not fully complete until the 1950's when Ledbury school and Ledbury Park were added to this neighbourhood.
Ledbury Park has an artificial Ice Rink. The first generation of Ledbury families are moving out of the neighbourhood and young professional families are moving in. This change in demographics can be seen in the flurry of building activity currently taking place in the Ledbury Park neighbourhood as the original housing stock is gradually being replaced with expensive custom built homes. The local parks have also undergone recent improvements and Avenue Road has emerged as one of Toronto's finest shopping districts.
Ledbury's original homes date from the 1910's to the 1950's. These houses include Tudor Style Bungalows on thirty to fifty foot wide lots. Ledbury's bungalows are rapidly being replaced by custom built homes. The original Ledbury houses also include small pockets of two-storey detached and semi-detached homes.
The custom built homes in this neighbourhood range in size from approximately two thousand to four thousand square feet. These homes are built with custom finishes and designer interiors. The exteriors are brick, stone or stucco and feature many decorative accents. Large bay windows, juliet balconies, professional landscaping, interlock driveways and elaborate front porches decorated by doric columns, and fanciful wrought iron railings.
Avenue Road is one of Toronto's most popular shopping districts. There is a large variety of shopping here including gourmet food shops, video stores, gift shops, fashion stores, home design and furnishing shops, as well as professional offices and a large variety of restaurants.
The Bathurst Street shopping district is much different in tone than Avenue Road. This shopping district includes Jewish food and gift shops, delicatessens, restaurants, and a handful of popular bakeries that serve up freshly baked Montreal style bagels.
