    Buying a home in Don Mills

    As home buyers are pushed from the downtown core in search of affordable housing, neighbourhoods like Don Mills are becoming more desirable for growing families. The neighbourhood itself is balanced between residential and urban living — centered around the intersection of Lawrence Avenue E and Don Mills Rd, which is surrounded by cozy residential streets lined with mature trees.

    Don Mills Condos aren’t just great for families, they’re also an excellent choice for nature lovers; the Don River runs through this neighbourhood and is shadowed by scenic walking trails. Golf aficionados — and those who try really hard and hack balls into the woods — have Donalda Club in the neighbourhood for a day on the links, and there’s an assortment of parks in the area like Chipping Park and Moccasin Trail Park.

    The most appealing aspect of this neighbourhood is affordability — both for Toronto condos and detached homes in the area — as properties in this neighbourhood go for prices that are well below those in Toronto. Families will find several well-regarded schools in the area, so there’s no drawback when it comes to education. You won’t get all the convenience that comes with living downtown, but in exchange for sacrificing on trendy bars and streetcar lines, you’ll get more bang for bang for your buck.

    Most businesses in the area are clustered around the intersection of Lawrence and Don Mills — there you’ll encounter a diverse selection of restaurants from upscale eateries like Fabbrica for Italian, to more run of the mill spots for food on the run such as Pizza Pizza. And of course, you can’t go more than a kilometre in Canada without stumbling upon a Tim Horton’s, which you’ll also find here.

    Don Mills functions well as standalone community; nightlife options aren’t likely to wow anybody who’s been spending time in the Entertainment District, but there are a number of restaurants that double as pubs here — Bier Markt, Jack Astor's, Glow Fresh Grill & Wine Bar, and more.

    When it comes to entertainment, Don Mills isn’t a one trick pony — there are movie theatres, a few art galleries, and an abundance of health and fitness clubs. For Shopping, there’s a sizeable collection of retail stores in the neighbourhood, including high-end brands like Coach, Banana Republic, and more. Plus, residents have plenty of choices for grocery runs and essential purchases.

    Condo Life in Don Mills

    With over 2 dozen condo buildings in the neighbourhood, the condo scene here could best be described as robust; Don Mills condos can be found in large mid-rise complexes, modern and traditional high-rise towers, low-rise residences, and townhouse development. Making the area even more appealing, is the fact that there’s so much diversity in terms of style and price; this is where the neighbourhood really shows its versatility, because prices range from very affordable to luxurious and pricey.

    For budget minded buyers there are buildings like Concorde Park I Condos, which offers a decent list of extras and affordable units with generous floor plans. You’ll find more of the same at the 31-storey Highgate Condos, and the price per square foot is even lower — of course, as this building was completed in the 80s, there’s a possibility that some units will be dated.

    Don Mills condos are also well-suited to buyers with more financial freedom. Loft lovers will likely be drawn to units at Liv Lofts — these soft lofts feature minimalist design, and come with exposed concrete ceilings, track lighting, and open concept layouts. Or if lofts aren’t your style and you’d prefer to have more square footage, townhomes found at Camelot on the Ravine Townhomes are quite spacious, and offer a living experience that’s similar to what you’d find in a single family home.

    Most Don Mills condos are located on The Donway and Lawrence, providing a great location for condo owners who enjoy having convenient options close to home — with TTC access just around the corner. In fact, condo owner won’t feel like they’re scarifying much convenience at all with this location, as they can easily walk to high-end boutiques and tantalizing restaurants… eat your heart out Yorkville.
