Drive east along Bloor Street from downtown, make a quick left onto Sherbourne, and watch the city streets and tall buildings instantly disappear. You are now in Rosedale, Toronto’s most majestic neighbourhood. Tucked away and surrounded by two tranquil ravines, Rosedale’s meandering tree-lined streets will mesmerize you and make you quickly forget that the city centre is just moments away.
Homes in Rosedale are grand, noble dames, full of distinguished character. Though they may not be as large as estates found in more suburban Toronto area locales, Rosedale homes prevail in their exquisite details and traditional beauty. Dating from as far back as the mid 1800’s, Rosedale residences are mostly two and three storey detached designs, some of which feature carriage houses that are the size of a more typical single family Toronto home. An array of architectural styles can be found, including Victorian, Edwardian, Georgian, and Tudor. The occasional newly built contemporary house might catch your eye, but these tend to be constructed with carefully selected materials to blend in with the surroundings. Luxurious Rosedale condos and moderately priced co-ops complete the Rosedale real estate spectrum.
For the high net worth individual who keeps an office in downtown Toronto, Rosedale is a perfect residential address. The financial district is accessed within minutes either by automobile or via the Yonge and Bloor subway lines, which have multiple stations merely steps away. Shopping is plentiful in the fine establishments at Summerhill, at Yonge and Bloor, and in the decadent boutiques of nearby Yorkville. Delectable eateries also await along Yonge Street and in Yorkville. Rosedale is also home to Whitney Public School, a junior school with an excellent reputation for academics, arts, athletics, and community involvement.
