$ 5,250,000

About the Neighbourhood:

Moore Park is surrounded by nature on all sides – a rare claim that few Toronto neighbourhoods can make. With Mount Pleasant Cemetery to the north, Park Drive Ravine and the CP Railway tracks to the south, Moore Park Ravine to the east and the Vale of Avoca to the west, Moore Park’s tranquil setting is rivalled by no other in the city. Settled in the late 1880s by John Thomas Moore, this city suburb was envisioned as an excellent locale or the affluent. Moore was instrumental in building the first commuter train system, the Belt LineRailway, which is now the Beltline Trail, providing today’s residents with a 14.5 km walking/running/biking trail throughout the city. This quintessential midtown neighbourhood has it all–quiet avenues, tree-lined streets, a sense of community–as well as proximity to excellent schools and other family-friendly amenities.
