Midland Park is a gorgeous neighbourhood of mid-century modern homes built in the late 50s-early 60s. Many existing trees were left intact, and the housing was designed and built to fit the landscape. Today, it’s a quiet, leafy community of wide, winding streets, tall trees and classy homes whose design style has stood the test of time.
Number four Brookridge Dr, just off Midland Ave, sits on the western edge of the development. It’s on a huge lot (50ft by 150ft) that allows for a nice setback from the street, a large private drive, and a fabulous backyard. The interior features three bedrooms, a separate dining room, and a large living/family room at the back of the house that opens onto the deck, patio and yard. There’s hardwood throughout the main floor, a bright skylight in the main hallway, and a side door off the kitchen. Overall, the design and layout are interesting and functional.
The basement is divided into two main rooms: a huge rec room – great for kids or entertaining – and an office/study that has a separate entrance. There are loads of options there!
The local schools are Donwood Park P.S. (St Victor Catholic), David & Mary Thomson C.I. and Bendale Business and Tech Institute (Jean Vanier Catholic). There’s plenty of amenities nearby – shopping, banks, restaurants, etc., and the bus stop is right around the corner. In addition to the school grounds, there’s the West Highland Creek on the eastern side of the development, and Thomson Memorial Park (home of the Scarborough Museum) just on the other side of Brimley, so there’s no shortage of outdoor activity options.
This home has been in the same family for over 50 years. It has been lovingly maintained, and is in move-in condition. If you would like to see this great little house please contact me to book a private viewing.
It took a while (summer is usually a slow time of year), but this great little house is now sold. If you are looking in the area, please drop me a line!
