Luxury Homes for Sale : Lawrence Park

Lawrence Park is one of Toronto, Canada's most affluent residential neighbourhoods. Bordered originally by Yonge Street to the west and Bayview Ave. to the east, and from Blythwood Ravine on the south to Lawrence Ave. on the north, this was one of Toronto's first planned garden suburbs. The development started in the early part of the century but did not fully develop until after the second world war. Centred on Mount Pleasant Road, the neighbourhood grew slowly with medium-sized houses on narrow but deep lots.

The Lawrence Park subdivision was incorporated in 1907. This neighbourhood was named after John Lawrence. This neighbourwood was deloped by Devoercourt Land Company.

The first advertisement for Lawrence Park trumpeted it as an aristocratic neighbourhoor, four hundred feet above Lake Ontario and far from the winter lake winds.

Homes for sale Bridle Path

Homes for sale : Bridle Path
Most of the houses in Bridle Bath neighbourhood sell for over million dollar to 16 million dollars. This exclusive enclave of homes is surrounded by the Don River Valley and lush parkland, which provide the perfect backdrop for The Bridle Path's stately homes.

The houses in the Bridle Path were built mostly in the 1930's, 1950's and 1960's which accounts for the eclectic mix of architectural styles found here. This mix of designs includes Georgian, Colonial, Greek and Tudor Revival, Italianate, Neo Gothic, California bungalows and futuristic modernist style houses. There is also a new luxury condominium apartment building scheduled to be built at number one Post Road, in the French Chateau style.

The typical Bridle Path estate offers a wide range of luxury features, ranging from pools, tennis courts, gazebos and cabanas, to greenhouses and waterfalls. Interior features range from gold fixtures and marble finishes to dance floors, saunas, personal gyms, and home theatres.

The Bridle Path could hardly have been envisioned by Alexander Milne, who settled on what is now Edwards Gardens in 1827. Milne operated woolen and saw mills on the banks of Wilket Creek until 1832 when a dwindling water supply forced Milne to move east to a mill site along the Don River.

The Bridle Path inconspicuously spent the rest of the 1800's and early 1900's as farmland. It wasn't until 1929, when the Bayview Bridge was built over the steep Don River Valley, that this area was considered for residential development.

Hubert Daniel Bull Page, a Toronto-based land developer was one of the founders of the present day neighbourhood. Page envisioned the Bridle Path as an exclusive enclave of estate homes. In 1929, Page built the Cape Cod Colonial style house at number 2 The Bridle Path, in an effort to spark interest in his subdivision.

Early plans for this neighbourhood called for an elaborate system of equestrian Bridle Paths. These Bridle Paths have long since been paved over, however their legacy remains in the Bridle Path's unusually wide streets and in the name of this neighbourhood.
