One of the most impressive aspects of Toronto is its composition of many different communities as a result of the time of development & the patriarch settlers of different parts of the city.
Victorian and Edwardian-era residential buildings can be found in enclaves such as Rosedale, Cabbagetown, The Annex, and Yorkville.
Wychwood Park is historically significant for the architecture of its homes, and for being one of Toronto's earliest planned communities. The Wychwood Park neighbourhood was designated as an Ontario Heritage Conservation district in 1985.
The Casa Loma neighbourhood is named after Casa Loma, a storybook castle built in 1911 complete with gardens, turrets, stables, an elevator, secret passages, and a bowling alley. Spadina House is a 19th century manor that is now a museum.  And thats just a few of Toronto's historical foundation.
The many residential communities of Toronto express a character distinct from that of the skyscrapers in the commercial core.
Each area is unique its in own way. Home styles change from one area to the next, as does the overall feel of each community. Surrounding amenities, facilities, and environmental development are all aspects of a particular areas development.
