Rosedale, Toronto Real Estate

Walk/Bike/Transit Score             2nd Quarter 2015 Reports 

Rosedale is one of Toronto’s most affluent neighbourhoods. Sitting just north of Bloor Street and east of Yonge Street, Rosedale has distinguished itself as one of the most sought after neighbourhoods in Toronto. Being one of the oldest suburbs in early Toronto you will find large lots and homes, some in wooded settings backing onto a ravine or green space. Rosedale is also known as one of the wealthiest neighbourhoods in the city.

Rosedale’s boundaries run from the railway tracks in the north, Yonge Street to the west, Rosedale Valley Road to the south and Bayview Avenue to the east.


Rosedale Real Estate:

Due to the windy roads throughout the neighbourhood Rosedale is a very quiet area of the city even just being minutes from the hustle and bustle of Downtown Toronto. Made up of primarily detached and luxury homes it is hard to find a house for less than 1.5 million. Over the years we have seen the growth of condos but all are tastefully built, many in park-like settings. There are a few townhouse areas but most are luxury properties. Semi’s and bungalows are rare in this area. Most properties in Rosedale were built in the late 1800’s and north Rosedale in the early 1900’s.

Rosedale has been able to maintain the old-school charm as a neighbourhood. Unlike Forest Hill and The Bridle Path “The area is notoriously resistant to change and proud of its understated elegance, especially compared with the flashier Forest Hill and the blinged-out Bridle Path.” As quoted by Toronto Life. You will find that all properties have the most up to date modern touches with the turn of the century charm.

Just blocks from Yorkville, you can stroll Toronto’s fine galaries and exclusive shops and restaurants.

Weekends any time of the year you will see families out walking with strollers and bikes. There is a real Rosedale community area feel to this part of Yonge with some very fine eateries to draw Torontonians from across the city. Nestled in the heart of Rosedale/Moore Park is Summerhill Avenue with small shops and banking within a short walk. The Summerhill Market is Rosedales hidden gem. Here you will find quality fresh vegetables and fruit and excellent dairy, meat and homemade foods ready to be taken home to impress your guests. Their desserts are to die for and of course they offer all supplies you would find at any well stocked grocery store. For your convenience, here is the Rosedale Business Directory.
