Timberlea sprung up in the 1980s and is bounded by Derry Rd – Main St E – Ontario St – Thompson Rd. Timberlea is one of Milton’s older neighbourhoods. It was developed in the late 1970s. The name likely originated with a forest that once thrived here. In the 1800s and early 1900s Milton was known for its huge tracts of forest and thriving saw mill industry.
With most of Timberlea being developed in the 1970s and 80s, it is one of the older neighborhoods in Milton. Don’t discount Timberlea just because it’s older, though, there are a lot of benefits to an older neighborhood. Modern development trends indicate shrinking lot sizes and houses that are closer and closer together. By choosing an older neighborhood, your chances of finding larger lot sizes and yards improve dramatically. Older neighborhoods have had time to mature, resulting in quieter streets and the privacy provided by larger trees. Not to mention that older neighborhoods are part of established school boundaries and rarely get swept up in the shuffle like newer neighborhoods tend to.
Timberlea is a mature neighborhood in the north central part of Milton’s urban core. Boundaries are Main Street to the North, Derry Road to the south, Ontario Street to the west, and Thompson Road to the east. Neighborhood landmarks include E.C. Drury School for the Deaf, Milton Mall, the railway tracks to the north, and the Milton Go Station. The houses are large and well suited to families. Timberlea has six neighborhood parks and four schools. Everything from shopping plazas to recreation centers is nearby. Commuters can access the 401 highway situated just a few minutes to the north.
Timberlea is a central neighborhood considered to be a part of Old Milton. It is so central, in fact, that Timberlea borders nearly every other neighborhood in Milton. It is known for mature, tree-lined streets, sizable lawns, and pool-worthy backyards. Timberlea is also included in the boundary for some of the best schools in the surrounding areas and is nearby to a lot of popular downtown restaurants and shopping. Timberlea’s northeastern neighbor, Dempsey was a serious contender for this category as well with its overall convenience, school reputation, and recreation options. In the end, Timberlea won out for its quiet spaciousness.
Timberlea housing stock dates from the late 1970s to the 1980s. The houses are mostly brick Neo-Colonial designs with garages out front and symmetrical roof lines with a sense of order to the houses. These houses are mostly larger homes on wide lots however there are also a fair number of smaller starter detached homes on narrow lots.
