City Milton, Ontario
Location # 6521

These are 5 homes that are on Ontario St. South in Milton. The home I have used for the marker is # 405, there are 4 other homes just south, 415, 425, 435 & 445. I have heard there is a proposal for town-homes or duplexes to be developed.

The homes seem to be pretty secure & are on an open & busy street. The back yards are less open to the public & the lots are deep, probably about 400', but they do not have a great amount of coverage. They back onto a small ravine & trail so no backing on to neighbours. The homes appear to be in very good shape, a few of the homes have swimming pools & one of the homes has their own private tennis court. They would probably be pristine for an exploration, but none of the homes were inviting me in. Hurry up & wait.

I am just getting my information on future plans, but I don't anticipate anything happening too quickly. If what I heard is true the developer would probably like to add another 6 homes. There may be another 2 or 3 already bought up, but the homes abutting the original 5 still are occupied.

I'll make updates as I get them.

superss Drove by this group of homes today. Two fire trucks parked in driveways & fire fighters casually checking out the properties. Probably checking to see if they are sealed properly. I assume the owners will be getting an order soon to reseal everything up.

superss I had similar thoughts RNRF, I generally like older homes, then when the boarding went up I thought it's time to put it on the site. Re: Yard sizes, The developers are looking out for the residents, they don't want people to have to work so hard cutting grass.

timekeeper I've been considering visiting and posting these places for over a year, I even got inside one of them last year but the one I went in was so plain and boring that I didn't bother even shooting. Hopefully they'll start to peel off a bit and make for some good shots

Golson Moldon Too much green space for 5 family's. Might as well pave it over and build high density housing!!!
