Homes in prestigious Rosedale are the rarest of offerings
Rosedale is an affluent heritage neighbourhood in Toronto which was formerly the estate of William Botsford Jarvis, and so named by his wife, granddaughter of William Dummer Powell, for the wild roses that grew there in abundance. It is located north of Downtown Toronto and is one of its oldest suburbs. Rosedale's boundaries consist of Moore Park to the north, Yonge Street to the west, Bloor Street to the south, and Bayview Avenue to the east.
Rosedale is traversed by a network of ancient ravines, including the Vale of Avoca, Moore Park, Park Drive and Rosedale Valley ravines. The beautiful trails in these ravines are enjoyed by nature and fitness enthusiasts alike. Because of its proximity to such fantastic trails and greenery, this neighbourhood makes you feel like you are far away from the city, when in fact you are within just a few minutes from Toronto’s major business, entertainment and shopping districts.
The area has some of the best private, public and catholic schools in downtown Toronto. It’s no wonder that Rosedale is known the world over as one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in Canada, and a fantastic place to raise a family within the city limits!
