Don Mills Real Estate
Don Mills Homes
If you are looking for a quiet, family-oriented North York neighbourhood that offers lots of space and good value, Don Mills is a community you should consider. Some great highlights of Don Mills living include:
Established, Diverse Neighbourhood
Built mainly in the 1950s and 1960s, homes in Don Mills encompass the complete range of styles from the era, including townhomes, side splits, a plethora of bungalows, and wide two-storey homes. In addition, various condominiums and apartments are nicely integrated into the neighbourhood. I find that because the community was so carefully planned, and since there are not as many newer developments and stuccoed homes as in other parts of North York
, beauty emanates from its relatively seamless flow and mature diversity.
Work Close to Home
Celestica and Foresters are two of several significant employers with facilities right on Don Mills Road. The office towers close to York Mills, and a little further north on Lesmill, makes for an effortless commute for many Don Mills residents. For those that need to travel Downtown, the Don Valley Parkway and Bayview Extension are scenic and relatively easy drives.
Outdoor Family Recreation
Many Don Mills homes feature generous driveways situated on quiet, winding streets, both of which are highly conducive to games of street hockey, pickup basketball, and other activities that get kids (and adults) outside and playing. Bond Park (east of Leslie Street) is a major hub for North York baseball leagues. If golf, tennis, or curling are more to your liking, the beautiful Donalda Club at Don Mills and York Mills provides a family-friendly escape for these pursuits.
Oasis at the Edge of the Don Valley
Even if you do not live directly overlooking the Don Valley Ravine, the extensive canopy overtop of most of Don Mills instils a sense of being within an urban woodland. Mature trees gracing homes with large lots contribute to this feeling. Taking a stroll through the luscious Edwards Gardens confirms it. If you follow the path from Edwards Gardens right down to Lake Ontario, you will feel like you have journeyed through miles of rural country valleys, all right from your doorstep.
