Welcome to another in my series of posts called ‘Model Homes’, where we look at the photos and floor plans of our Don Mills homes as they were when they were built! This unusual model – one of my favourites – has a courtyard feature that isn’t found on most other homes in the area. You can see several of these models still around today, in the southeast quadrant of the Donway, on Waxwing Place, Deepwood Crescent, and Plateau Crescent. I really like the wood partition wall seen in the photo, which seems to be a feature that most modern owners have removed. The architect was James Murray, and this baby would set you back a cool 16 grand in 1955.
Bonus round: Go to my November 27, 2012 post to see how one of these looks now… or at least… looked in November!
