Nature Wants In – Milton, Ontario

A random find along the highway as we traveled from one destination to another. There wasn’t much of photogenic value to be found inside. The rear patio door was open and several leaves had blown inside the dining room, confirming to me that this was indeed a vacant property.There is a theory that the floor…


Watch for Ticks

This house was part of our itinerary for the day. I had no idea what to expect from it. As we approached, the driveway was overgrown and it was difficult to see the house. There were three, perhaps four buildings on the property. I drove up the driveway (thank you 4×4) and we approached the…


The Bull Monty

As fate would have it on this day of exploring, the two most sought locations were locked up. At the same time, fate also decided to hand us several random houses along the road. Several times throughout the day we found ourselves making a U-turn to investigate potential abandoned places.This particular four-bedroom, three-bathroom house is…

Toronto Bungalow

Like so many of Toronto’s aging homes, this property fell into the cross-hairs of a property developer and now awaits its day with the bulldozer. The property was built in 1966 and features a three car garage. The front door and fireplace are exceptionally wider than found in most homes today. The property is located…


The Hippy Camp

Stain Glass Farm House

This is a rural farm out in the country. The front entrance features yellow and blue stain glass. The staircase is the usual wooden newel post design that was so prevalent in these designs.An assistance walker in the front entrance along with the dated bed frame and overall design of the home, leads me to…


Sandra’s House

This location is named Sandra’s House for the young girl who once lived here. As of 2021, she would be approximately 29 years old. In her bedroom still hang the movie posters from Walt Disney’s Pocahontas (released in 1995). The house was a treasure trove of vintage children’s toys at one time. These items include…


Puslinch Highway House

This is a well documented house in the urban exploration hobby as the house is found alongside a well traveled highway near Hamilton. The house has been vacant for as long as I can remember. In recent years wooden beams have been added to the exterior of the house, presumably to reinforce the frame.Despite the…

The house is barely visible from the road.The house was constructed in 1967.It was last occupied by a family from Syria. The family came to Canada as refugees from the war torn country of Syria….
