Southgate Village

When: Built circa 1965-1967.

Where: Various parts of the D-Section.

Who: Built by Bramalea Construction (Peel) Limited

What I Know: Some of the plans are carry-overs from earlier parts of Bramalea, such as the Journey’s End and Country Regent, also built in the B-Section.

Some of the semi-detached plans from Twingate in the C-Section were also built in this area. In particular the: Vanity Flair, Autumn Grove, Galleon Beau, Galleon Belle, King’s Mill and Rainbows End. (https://bramaleablog.wordpress.com/2013/11/18/twingate/). In particular these houses were built on: Danesbury Crescent, Doncaster Crescent, Dartford Road, Dorchester Drive (North End), Dalton Place, Dalraith Crescent, Darlington Crescent, Dunwich Place, and Dorset Drive (south end). *A special thanks to blog reader Graham for all of this information!*

Other parts of the D-Section were built under the Ontario Government’s H.O.M.E. (Home Ownership Made Easy) Plan.

I apologize for the quality of some of these plans, but they are the only copies I have.
