The homes in Lisgar are mostly all brick, and are very simple in design with few character details. The community dominated by homes built mostly in the 90’s to early 2000’s, however you can find older homes from the 1980’s & early 1990’s in Trelawny Estates and the streets located off of Osprey Blvd close to Britannia. In general, the backyards are smaller than more mature areas such as Meadowvale or Streetsville, and the trees and landscaping is still developing on many streets. Though the homes are solid, there’s a certain character that is lacking from the overall impression on many streets.
Lisgar is full of young to medium aged families due to the relative affordability of homes and easy commuting via highway or GO train. The schools and interwoven green spaces make family life easy.
For the size and population of Lisgar, there isn’t much diversity in housing styles. Lisgar is predominantly made up of detached and semi detached family homes with a small number of townhouses scattered through the neighbourhood. One exception is Trewlany estates, which is a unique subdivision of large detached homes built on small courts. There are dozens of the courts where the street is only shared with a few houses making them feel like they are on a private road.
