The first advertisement for Lawrence Park in 1907, trumpeted it as an 'aristocratic neighbourhood', 'four hundred feet above Lake Ontario', and 'Far from the Lake Winds in Winter'. Lawrence Park has certainly lived up to its reputation as an exclusive neighbourhood in terms of Toronto luxury real estate, with a 2014 average sale price of $2,843,000, and houses for sale in Lawrence Park, Toronto today have arguably raised the high bar.
