John Silverthorn’s sawmill and gristmill, constructed on land he was granted in 1810, were the community’s focal point for 60 years. When the ebbing Etobicoke Creek could no longer power the mills, the resourceful family turned its attention to farming. In 1958, they sold their property to developer Mark Cavotti, whose associates honoured him by anointing the place they had nicknamed “Mark’s lands” Markland Woods. Today, the neighbourhood is populated with substantial homes, standing tall on wide, well-landscaped lots; private driveways and double garages are the rule. The shrubs out front are artfully lit; the gardens beyond show quality. There’s also an abundance of towering trees. The profusion of culs-de-sac makes this an obvious settlement for families. The houses in this area—most of which date back to the early ’60s—come in a variety of different styles: detached two-storey Georgian and Regency revivals, backsplits and modern bungalows; on the northern border, upscale condos abound.
Shopping at Sherway Gardens is just a stones throw away. Sherway Gardens enjoys a reputation as the safest, cleanest and most comfortable shopping centre in the region.
