Considered Toronto’s “original suburb”, Rosedale is one of the most historic and luxurious neighbourhoods in the city, filled with century-old mansions, sprawling lawns, and private schools.
Rosedale was settled in 1826 by Sheriff William Jarvis, and has since been occupied by Toronto’s wealthiest residents. Home to roughly 5,235 families, the neighbourhood meanders around three ravines, which have been preserved as parkland. It is a very green community, boasting over 200 acres of parks, mature trees, and foliage.
The neighbourhood is located in the heart of Toronto, bordered to the north by the CPR Railway tracks, Yonge Street to the west, Bayview Avenue to the east, and Bloor Street to the south. It is split into north and south sections by the Park Drive Ravine, and east and west by Mount Pleasant Road.

Many of the families in the area have lived there for generations, tracing back to development after the second world war, and have predominately Scottish, Irish, and English backgrounds.

Century homes built in the Victorian and Edwardian style
Rosedale is known for its tree-lined streets and collection of stately mansions, many of which are between 100 – 200 years old. Homes are predominately detached houses made from brick and limestone, built in the Edwardian, Tudor, Victorian and Georgian styles.
It should be noted that Rosedale houses must adhere to strict design regulations; newly-built homes must conform to the neighbourhood aesthetic, and many hold heritage status. As a result, many homeowners focus on renovating their existing homes, rather than building new.
Residential luxury with walkable amenities

Rosedale is a 10-minute walk from the designer flagship stores located along Yonge St at Bloor as well as the vibrant Yorkville neighbourhood.
