The Rosedale neighbourhood is south of the CPR railroad tracks, north of the Rosedale Ravine, east of Yonge Street, and west of the Don Valley.
In 1824, Sheriff William Botsford Jarvis and his wife Mary became some of the first residents of Rosedale. Mrs. Jarvis loved the profusion of roses surrounding their estate, which is how the neighbourhood got its name. The wife of the sheriff played another historical role in this area. Thanks to Mary Jarvis’ daily walks and horseback rides, Rosedale’s meandering streets emerged. They still define the area today.
The 110 acre Jarvis estate was sold 40 years after the sheriff and his wife moved in. This sale paved the way for the subdivision and residential development of the southern part of the neighbourhood.
Today, the northern and southern parts of the wealthy neighbourhood are on the city’s list of conservation districts. That means that Toronto must actively preserve Rosedale’s Garden Suburb pattern of streets, its ravine topography, and the classic architectural style of its homes.
When many people think of Rosedale, they think of stately mansions from the turn of the 20th century. But if you want to buy property in this neighbourhood, a large single family home isn’t the only option. There are a number of condo buildings in the southern part of Rosedale.
