The name refers to the roses that were everywhere 200 years ago, and the reputation may be of an elite enclave, but heritage-rich Rosedale is refreshingly un-stuffy and real. It’s a family neighbourhood, they do public art fairs and Halloween big time — like we said, real. Mapped and built on a trio of ravines and an 1800’s golf course, Rosedale’s streets are a dipsy-doodle of twisty roads, keeping traffic slow and safe.
All the better for exploring the Rosedale homes for sale. Century-plus Victorians, Georgians and Tudors — each unique, no cookie-cutters here — are shielded by a massive, quietening canopy. But when you want a little action (not to worry, we said a little), the beloved Summerhill Avenue offers services, shops and tastes as unexpected as Rosedale’s cul-de-sacs, from brisket to a genuine Alsatian boulangerie.
