Another in our series of model homes posts – where we look at various styles of Don Mills homes – as they appeared when they were built.
‘Modern Semi-Detached: Semi-detached houses were a gamble in 1954 when single-family homes were in demand. But their compact plan and attractive exterior made them good buys, especially at 13,500. They were carefully sited to avoid the gap-tooth look ofthen found in streets of semi-detacheds. Main door is at front of one house, at the side of its twin, to give greater privacy.’ – Canadian Homes and Gardens, February 1959.
