If we all think about it this is 100% correct, we have seen homes with a lot of the same features over the years.
When I initially meet with my Buyers, one of the first things they share is that they DO NOT WANT A COOKIE CUTTER HOME! (Which isn't so surprising as I do tend to list the more unique properties in the area)
This is defined as what was once called Tract Housing and has now expanded into the typical suburban developments that we see sprawling outside of most city centres. You would be hard pressed to find a major difference between your home and your neighbours other than the colour of your front door!
From Wikipedia, a photo of the typical cookie cutter development in Markham, Ontario:
What I've found is that regardless of when the home was built, it would have been 'cookie cutter' in its own day.
Look at these two photos and tell me if you think they're similar?
and this is a home coming on the market Monday the 27th July
Very similar aren't they!!
Even though these two homes were built in two different centuries and a brave journey of at least a full day by horse and carriage, they have very strong similarities throughout.
When the expert stone masons of yesteryear found something that worked, they stuck with it!
So, if you are looking for a unique home, it very well may have been "Cookie Cutter" in its own day. If you're looking for a unique home in the Kingston and 1000 Islands area, Susan Emo Sells Unique Homes
