The Good News
Those same big old trees are incredible umbrellas on the curving streets, and you’re close to the crossroads of Toronto, Bloor and Yonge. We walk to Cabbagetown and the Danforth, are close to the subway lines, and have access to the DVP.
The Bad News
The houses are bigger (so too are the prices), so maintenance and repairs can be daunting. Nothing is a small expense. And if you want any free time, a gardener and a friendly carpenter are a must. The big old trees can cause havoc with your drains, and emergency plumbers should be on your speed dial.
Homes, Architecture, and Real Estate
North and South Rosedale both are part of the city’s heritage conservation districts due to the historical homes and defining characteristics of the area.
In the years around 1912, there was a boom of building in South Rosedale of brick homes in the Arts and Crafts style. Homes built in the 1920s have classical architecture surrounded by the beauty of the area’s greenery and ravines.
There are also key examples of modern period architecture in North Rosedale by architects like Ron Thom and Barton Myers. As we’ve seen, all the homes here are on the expensive side, so don’t expect to get into one of the larger centrally located homes in this area without millions under your belt.
