Homes in Moore Park
Moore Park includes primarily English Cottage, Georgian, and Tudor-style houses built between 1908 and 1930. There are also a fair number of townhomes built in the 1970s and 1980s and a growing number of new custom homes.
Moore Park lots vary in size but are generally quite large. Fifity foot frontages are the norm on the more exclusive streets. The streets are lined with a mature tree canopy and many of the houses back onto one of the ravines that skirt this neighbourhood.
The combibation of outstanding architecture and pretty greenspace make Moore Park one of Toronto's most beautiful neighbourhoods.
Moore Park also contains many newer townhouses as well as a fair number of duplex and multi-plex homes.
For such a high end neighbourhood it is somewhat surprising that many of the houses have shared rather than private driveways. However, the streets are so quiet and uncluttered that parking is not a problem.
