Governor's Bridge Toronto - a peaceful community at the edge of Rosedale
Located east of the northern part of Rosedale, Governor's Bridge is a secluded triangular piece of land, bordered on the west by Moore Park ravine, on the east by Don Valley ravine, and on the north by the railway tracks. This exclusive neighbourhood was subdivided in 1912, and developement started in 1923, once the bridge over the Moore Park ravine connected it to Toronto.
Most of Governor's Bridge homes have been built between 1920s and 1940s, and the residences vary in style and size. One can still find some original small 2 and 3 bedroom bungalows, charming English Country homes and large 2-storey residences on ravine settings. Some of the original homes have been demolished, and replaced by new, custom designed residences.
60 homes were more recently built in the south-east part of the neighbourhood,between the railroad tracks and Bayview Extension. The construction of these luxury residences was finished by 2003. The homes are sitting on higher land looking over Bayview Avenue and Don Valley ravine on the east side. Residences on the west side of True Davidson Drive back onto the Moore Park ravine.
A 1920s Tudor building, originally an apartment complex, located on Douglas Crescent, has been converted into condominium townhouses and apartments in late 1990s.
