Rosedale & Moore Park

For over 100 years, this neighborhood has held the distinction of being one of Toronto’s most desired addresses. Many of Toronto’s most prominent citizens reside in this picturesque and upscale neighborhood.

This community is unique in that it is surrounded by beautiful ravines and parklands that make you feel as though you are far away from the city and yet, you are only minutes from downtown Toronto, Bay Street, entertainment, restaurants and, of course, the shopping district of Bloor-Yorkville. Recognized internationally as one of the top ten shopping destinations, it is Canada’s fashion mecca. The Victorian, Georgian, Tudor and Edwardian style mansions were built between 1860 and 1930 and many of these homes are listed on the Toronto Historical Board’s Inventory of Heritage Properties.
