Homes in Lansing
Lansing streetscapes feature gently swaying pine trees and grand old maple trees that compliment the whimsical mix of Edwardian, Tudor, English Cottage and Craftsman style houses that were originally built in this neighbourhood. These houses were built between the 1920s and 1940s. Many of the bungalows have been bought by developers and replaced with luxurious new custom built homes.
Historical houses in this neighbourhood include the Joseph Shepard house, circa 1835, located at 90 Bundle Avenue, The Michael Shepard house, circa 1859 which now serves as the York Cemetery office; the Joseph Shepard House/Dempsey Brothers Store, circa 1860 at 250 Beecroft Road; and the former house of Canadian artist and Group of Seven member Frank Carmichael, circa 1918, located at 21 Cameron Avenue.
