Moving to Leaside

If the thought of living in Leaside real estate intrigues you, hire a great real estate agent and inform them of your wants and needs for your next home so they can narrow down the list of appropriate properties for you to consider. According to Zillow, the median price of homes in Leaside is around $1.9 million. Prices continue to rise and inventory continues to shrink, which is why the guidance of a savvy real estate agent is essential to get you into a residential unit. Buyers are advised to get into the market as soon as possible to avoid being priced out. Once you’ve settled into a great home in this wonderful neighborhood, it’s time to start looking for that perfect cup of java.

People who have purchased Leaside homes for sale rave about the unique latte art and the friendly service at the Himalayan Coffee House, which makes it one of the best of its kind in Leaside. Many people have become regulars at this cozy coffeehouse, which is located in a charming brick building, in large part because of the designs that the baristas make on top of the lattes. The latte art originated as a marketing strategy and it worked, with Instagram and word-of-mouth attracting many customers who want to see what all the fuss is about.

Customers never know what art they’re going to get on their delicious lattes. Sometimes it’s simple animals like dogs, bears, and bunnies, and sometimes it’s Hello Kitty or Super Mario. That’s the fun about coming to the Himalayan Coffee House, which also serves other coffee drinks as well as pastries and other light fare. It’s worth a visit to the coffee house’s Instagram page for a preview of both the lattes and the art.
