Known as Toronto’s most fashionable address for over a century, Rosedale is a City of Toronto Heritage District bordered by the CPR railway tracks, Yonge Street, Bloor Street, and Bayview Avenue, and split in half by the Park Drive Ravine. The neighbourhood is famous for housing many of the city’s wealthiest and most prominent citizens in breathtaking Toronto mansions.

Rosedale Real Estate: Rich in Value and Community

Rosedale real estate is some of the highest valued in the city, and it’s easy to see why. Rosedale residents are surrounded by beautiful ravines and parkland, giving that relaxing feeling of being far away from the city. In reality, this large garden ‘suburb’ is only a few minutes away from Toronto’s major business, entertainment, and shopping districts. Walking distance from upscale shops and restaurants on a thriving stretch of Yonge Street, residents of Rosedale have easy access to fashion, art, décor and more.

Rosedale is located just north of downtown Toronto and has several busses that run through the neighbourhood and connect with Rosedale and Sherbourne subway stations. Much of the neighbourhood is also within walking distance from Bloor Street and the various stations along it going east and west, and the bus stops heading north and south. Motorists are minutes away from the Don Valley Parkway.

Luxurious Rosedale Homes

A stroll through Rosedale reveals gorgeous architecture on display with large and stately Victoria, Georgian, Tudor, and Edwardian-style Toronto mansions built between 1860 and 1930. High quality renovations and reconstructions have helped these estates maintain their structural integrity to this day. Many of the older houses are listed on the Toronto Historical Board’s Inventory of Heritage Properties, so you could live a luxurious lifestyle while really feeling like part of Toronto’s history. Those who prefer a modern aesthetic will find a variety of more recently-built custom Toronto mansions, and it’s not uncommon to purchase a home just to use the lot to create something new.

You’ll find a series of old and new luxury Rosedale condominiums in the southern district. Many of the taller buildings offer brilliant views of the ravines as well as the Toronto skyline. There are also new condos being built all the time, and you can expect each one to be a high-end building with big, beautiful units.

Rosedale homes are also special because they are rarely bothered by loud city sounds. The trees in the area muffle the noise, allowing time at home to be peaceful and relaxing.

Bright Futures

Rosedale is home to a great community. Rosedale and Ramsden Park have gathering spots among their tennis courts, sports fields, ice rinks, and wading pools, and members of Mooredale House, a community centre, have access to children and adult sports, fitness, arts, and music programs. Community also forms on the beautiful trails along the three ravines where nature and fitness enthusiasts alike meet to hike, jog, or stroll.
