Rosedale: Where 'Old Money' Lives





















Rosedale is a beautiful neighborhood and one of the oldest in Toronto. With massive estates and regal tree lined streets, it is hard to believe it is located within walking distance to downtown Toronto and the city's hippest shopping at Yonge & Bloor. For over one hundred years Rosedale has held the distinction of being the city's most fashionable address, and many of Toronto's wealthiest and most prominent citizens reside there. It is said 'Old Money Lives in Rosedale'. Built between 1860 and 1930, many of Rosedale's large and stately homes are Heritage Properties constructed in Victorian, Georgian, Tudor and Edwardian styles. Po Ku is one of Rosedale's preeminent classicist/builder.
