One of my all time favourite ‘Mid Century Modest’ houses in Don Mills is for sale, at 9 Cottonwood. Not easy to see her fifities lines and structure in the photo because of the overgrown yews and Japanese Maples, but I hope my hastily snapped pic gives you the general idea. Yes, I’m pretty sure this house will need some TLC and repair before it sparkles again like the architectural gem it is, but it’s so atomic, so cool, and so Mid Century, I’d hate to see it fall to the wrecking ball for another bland McMansion… as the MLS listing suggests to do… literally saying “build the biggest sized home in your area!” OH THE HUMANITY!!! Cottonwood is a beautiful street with amazing neighbours, NO McMansions, and lots of kids, so won’t someone come and give this home a home?
Here is the listing. Sorry no inside pics!
UPDATE: This house has been torn down. Another gem bites the dust.
