In 1824 William Botsford Jarvis bought a parcel of land east of Yonge Street and north of Bloor Street.  On it, he built a house near what is now Rosedale Road.  Jarvis’ wife, Mary, gave the homestead the name “Rosedale” from the wild roses that grew there.  In the 1850’s William’s nephew, Edgar John Jarvis, acquired more land and began to develop Rosedale.  His wife, Charlotte, was quoted years later in a newspaper interview: “It was difficult to sell Rosedale properties because Toronto women thought it was so far out of the city they could not get maids and were afraid of roughing it.”

Today, with its tree-lined streets and trademark Victorian and Edwardian mansions, Rosedale is synonymous with classic luxury.  To buy a house in Rosedale means making a serious financial commitment.  In 2014, the average sale price was $2.3 million, with a range of below $1 million to above $10 million.

One of the most distinctive architectural features in Rosedale is the former North Toronto Railway Station, located on the east side of Yonge Street at Scrivener Square.  Its 140 foot tall clock tower has served as a landmark since it was built in 1916.  Today the station houses a liquor store.  It is at the heart of a lively shopping district that offers everything from imported foods to designer clothing to that perfect piece of antique furniture.

Rosedale feels like a quiet, leafy suburb, yet is minutes from the city centre.  The grand houses are not museums, but vibrant homes in a family-friendly community.  It is easy to see why Rosedale remains a neighbourhood of choice in Toronto.
