Where: Streets starting with an “H” in the L-Section
When: built circa 1967-1970
Who: Builder unknown (possibly Campbell Construction), The Chatelaine Design Home, and other custom plans: Bramalea Construction (Peel) Limited
What I know: Thanks to the insights from a reader, I now know that Bramalea Woods was originally built as the H-Section (thus the street names beginning with an “H”). The surrounding area later built as the L-Section was originally planned as a golf course. In the early 1970s the innovative zero lot-line houses built east of Dixie Road became the H-Section.
I only have 4 plans, but there are others in the area that I am missing. There are also custom-designed houses in the area.

It is interesting to note that the top right house shown at the bottom of this ad is the 1964 Chatelaine Design Home, which was built in the Crescent Hill area on the other side of Dixie Road. At the time, though, they would have been the only other houses in this part of Bramalea. The 1965 Chatelaine Design Home, however, was built in Bramalea Woods, and is shown at the bottom of this post.

The 1965 Chatelaine Design Home was built at the end of Heather Place in Bramalea Woods. It was only one of two built that year – the other in Ste-Therese, a suburb of Montreal. Below is an article from the August 1965 issue of Canadian Builder.
