Sterling Ridge

When: Built circa 1980-1981

Who: Bramalea Limited/Bramalea Homes

Where: Nantucket Crescent, Newcastle Crescent, Normandy Place, Northampton Street, some houses on the north side of Mansion Street.

What I know: Many of the designs in this collection are based on previous plans – particularly in Sunrise Estates and Bramalea Estates in the M-Section. The plans for the Connoisseur Collection in the L-Section are also close relatives to those in this neighbourhood.

The large studio over the garage can be found on a series of designs in the J, L, M and N-Sections built in the 1980s.

It is interesting to see the escalating interest rates and prices of the homes in the advertising for this neighborhood over the period of 2 years.

A handful of houses from this area were built across Dixie Road on the north side of Mansion Street. In the middle are 5 houses from the 1970s community Bramalea Estates. I believe that the 5 houses were the model homes for Bramalea Estates and the Sterling Ridge houses were in-fills built after that community was completed.
