For more than 100 years, Rosedale has been home to some of Toronto’s wealthiest and most popular citizens.
Despite the fact that this neighbourhood is only a few minutes away from the city’s major business and entertainment districts, it does not feel this way. This is due in large part to the parkland that surrounds the area.
Rosedale is a great place to raise a family, thanks to its private and peaceful setting, without having to move too far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Rosedale first came about in the 1820’s, named by the wife of the local Sherriff, Mary Jarvis.
While South Rosedale first underwent development in the 1860’s it was not until 1909 that residential properties in North Rosedale began to sprout.
North Rosedale is well known for being hope to Rosedale Golf Club as well as the original location of St. Andrews College.
The majority of the homes in Rosedale were constructed in one of the following styles: Edwardian, Georgian, Tudor, or Victorian. While not true across the entire community, most of the homes were constructed between 1860 and 1930.
Rosedale is home to some of the biggest and most unique properties in Toronto, leading to many being listed on the Toronto Historical Board’s Inventory of Heritage Properties.
In addition to single family homes, there are multiple apartment buildings and condo developments in the neighbourhood. These provide those who cannot afford a single family home with a way to move into this coveted community.
