Moore Park is perhaps the only Toronto neighbourhood that can claim to be surrounded by nature on all sides. 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 setting is rivaled by no other in the city.
Settled in the late 1880’s by John Thomas Moore, this city suburb was envisioned as an excellent locale for the wealthy. Moore was instrumental in building the first commuter train system, the Belt Line Railway, which is now the Belt Line Trail, providing residents with a 14.5km walking/running/biking trail throughout the city. This quintessential midtown neighbourhood has it all; quiet avenues, tree-lined streets, proximity to excellent schools and other family-friendly amenities.
Moore Park Homes
The charming homes of Moore Park are primarily of English Cottage, Georgian and Tudor style, built between 1900 and 1930. Large lots provide plenty of space for growing families, with many homes backing on to the area’s many ravines. Interestingly enough, despite being a high-end neighbourhood, many homes have shared driveways. However, the quiet residential avenues provide ample street parking. A selection of newer townhouses, duplex and multi-plex homes are also available within Moore Park’s boundaries.
Moore Park Real Estate Market
Moore Park is a highly sought-after neighbourhood providing a slightly quiet alternative to other high-end areas such as Deer Park and Summerhill. The natural surroundings result in relatively private and unique lots, and its location within midtown Toronto, close to transit and commuter routes all account for the high-end price tag.
