Description
I found this location while on my way to see "King Road Duck Man".

I spotted it from the road, but wasn't sure if it was abandoned because it wasn't boarded up. I approached cautiously and made my way around back. I peered through the sliding door window and saw that the place was completely empty. I tried all doors around the back and thought I was out of luck until I noticed the front door's window had been broken. The door was locked, but that was easily overcome with a reach and a twist of the lock.

This place was pristine. Absolutely no graffiti or vandalism (aside from that window of course). The decor looked old and I came across some gorgeous fixtures throughout the house. Other than that the place was pretty empty, but it was nice to come across a house that hasn't fallen victim to vandals. I don't know any history on the house. I'm still figuring out how to go about searching for stories of people who once lived in these types of places. Any feedback or suggestions would be appreciated.

This place along with 4 others will fall victim to Richmond Hill's plans for yet another subdivision.

Actually, now that I think about it...I need to go back to this location. I think there's a few other neighbouring houses that might be abandoned too to make way for the housing development Richmond Hill has planned. Any takers??? I need a partner in crime.

@superss, You saw a "Miche" license plate??? Lol, damnit, they beat me to the punch. I drive a greyish van that's horrible on gas. HORRIBLE! @f.o.s. Luckily I haven't encountered any of those yet, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time. That's part of the thrill, you never know what you'll encounter. So long as I'm there with someone else, I feel safe-ish.

@ Miche, a ticket is usually the last thing on my mind! I'm more worried about squatters, skunks, rotten floors with sealed flooded basements (shiver), uncovered wells, and of course, psycho serial killers with confinement rooms built into a house.

Ahhhh, when I saw a white car creeping down the road by some abandoned looking homes that peaked my interest & then the personalized license plate I thought hmm, just a co-incidence or Miche.

@ Superss, Haha, close-ish! I was in Richmond Hill/King but I must go back to Milton. So much to see!

I love being the first to see a place, but yeah, safety first! I"m almost 30 and I"ve come this far without a criminal record. I'd like to keep it that way :P

I think I saw her driving around Milton about an hour and a half ago.
