With its distinct location, surrounded by the Toronto Zoo on the north and the Rouge River Valley on the east, those who visit this neighbourhood will never forget the experience. The location, coupled with other benefits, has attracted many people to purchase property in the area.
To go along with affordable housing, residents of Rouge have access to shopping, schools, and parks – all within the community.
Like many neighbourhoods in north Toronto, in the early days Rouge was a farming community. However, this changed in the early 1950’s when Highway 401 was introduced to the area.
Soon enough, the 1960’s rolled round and homes were being constructed in the area.
While some homes were built during the 1960’s, most were completed during the 1970’s and 1980’s. The 1990’s saw even more growth, thanks to new subdivisions, schools, and a shopping centre.
Most of the properties built in the 1960’s are ranch style and two story homes.
Those built in the later years consist primary of two story semi-detached and detached homes.
There are also some townhome and condominium developments throughout the neighbourhood.
Affordable pricing attracts many new buyers to the area. Home prices start at roughly $200,000 and range to $600,000 on the high end.
