By Elli Davis, June 18, 2009
We are delighted to announce that we have just completed and published a full historical and living guide for The Bridle Path neighbourhood in Toronto. There are photos and neighbourhood recommendations that you can really use. Please have a look to see if your favorite is there and leave us a comment if you feel we've missed anything out.
Also known as "Millionaire's Row", the Bridle Path originated as an ultra exclusive neighbourhood in the early 1930's. Despite its status as one of Toronto's three wealthiest neighbourhoods, rich Torontonians who reside in more established bastions of wealth such as Rosedale and Forest Hill sometimes see the Bridle Path as an enclave for the 'nouveau riche' to enjoy ostentatious and tasteless displays of their affluence.
The Bridle Path does indeed contain a spectacular display of fine homes, mostly built from the 1930's to the 1960's in every style from Georgian, Colonial, Greek and Tudor Revival, Italianate and Neo Gothic to California bungalows and futuristic modernist houses; what most of the properties have in common is multi-million dollar price tags and huge, two to four acre lot sizes. There are also luxury condominium buildings with stunning details and opulent features that rival those in the surrounding mansions.
