Pick of the Day ™ goes to Earl Crescent. If you drive through that area, it feels so much different than the new sections. Most builders are maxing their lot size at 40-43 feet, and some of the streets like Earl in the Beaty neighbourhood were almost all 56-foot lots. The streets felt less cluttered, and the floor plans really opened up with more horizontal space to work with.
We get a lot of questions from people about the “best” place to live in town… and it really depends on what they’re looking for. For a detailed analysis of the neighbourhoods and places to live, download a copy of the Guide to Milton Prices.
People like the Escarpment views and modern homes of the west end, and they like the larger lots and stable school zones on the east. In the mature neighbourhoods, it’s all about lot size and mature trees. Different strokes for different folks.
Other standouts are the townhouse on Duncan – even though I would never personally live across from train tracks, it doesn’t seem to affect their ability to sell – and the double garage for $599k on McDougall. The corner townhouse on Cartwright and the home on Laundon also look like good choices, with Cartwright making good use of the “double bracket” strategy we’ve talked about many times.
