Rosedale is an oasis of tranquility located in the bustling Toronto metropolis. Owing its name to a profusion of roses growing in the area in the late nineteenth century, Rosedale has been in existance as a residential neighbourhood since the early 1900s. Today it is considered one of Toronto's most affluent and elite enclaves. The area is roughly bounded by the Canadian Pacific Railway tracks to the north, Rosedale Valley Road to the south, Yonge Street to the west, and Bayview Avenue to the east. An eclectic mix of architectural styles including Victorian, Edwardian, Georgian and Tudor define residences in the area. Rosedale is unique in that it is surrounded by beautiful ravines and parkland that make you feel as if you are far away from the city, while in reality it is just a few minutes from Toronto's major business, entertainment, and shopping districts.
