For over a century, the neighbourhood of Rosedale has been considered Toronto’s most affluent area
Rosedale boasts some of the largest and most architecturally decorative homes in the entire city. Surrounded by fabulous greenery, the feeling in Rosedale is more like a holiday resort than a busy city, yet this community is only a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Toronto’s downtown core.
Built between the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, many of Rosedale’s homes feature Georgian, Tudor, Victorian and Edwardian style architecture. Many of these properties are considered Heritage properties. In South Rosedale, home buyers can find a variety of condominium, co-operative, and co-ownership buildings, offering home buyers a good entry point into this affluent community.
In the Summerhill section of Rosedale on Yonge St are a number of upscale stores and restaurants, within walking distance of those located west of Mount Pleasant Rd. Those living on the east side of Mount Pleasant can reach all of their day-to-day needs along the small commercial block along Summerhill Ave at the north end of Rosedale.
Rosedale is a nature-lover’s delight, boasting a labyrinth of ancient ravines and scenic trails. There are a number of access points to these ravine trails scattered throughout the neighbourhood.
Rosedale and Ramsden Parks feature tennis courts, ice rinks, and wading pools for locals wishing to enjoy the outdoors both in summer and winter. And of course, with a short bus or subway ride, locals can quickly and easily reach the financial and entertainment districts of downtown Toronto.
While most errands can be done by foot, Rosedale is well-serviced by public transit. Rosedale buses run along many of the area’s main drags, connecting commuters to the Rosedale subway station along the Yonge-University-Spadina line, as well as the Sherbourne subway station along the Bloor-Danforth line.
Commuters travelling by car can get to the Don Valley Parkway within minutes.
