The Park Collection

When: Built circa 1986-1987

Where: Jeremy Place, Jayfield Road (1 house)

Who: Bramalea Limited

What I Know: During the 1980s, Bramalea Limited began to fill in parcels of land in established areas which were often set aside for an elementary school (but which was never actually built). This is the case for this pocket neighbourhood of 32 houses on a cul-de-sac in the J-Section.

As is typical with these in-fill enclaves, the lot sizes are fairly narrow in comparison to those in the surrounding area. In this case they lots are 38-feet wide, yet all of the houses have an oversize 1-car garage or 2-car garage. The houses are fairly large and all have a main-floor family room and an ensuite bathroom off of the master bedroom. Interestingly, the Uxbridge plan is the only design without completely separate living and dining rooms, and it is the most open-concept design offered in the area.

The one house in this area built on Jayfield Road (which is 58-feet wide at the front) appears to be the same as the Ashley plan from the Master’s Series in Deerchase – shown below.

The two corner houses in the area appear to be a variation of typical corner designs built by Bramalea Limited in the late 1980s – particularly in the N-Section. Below is one of the versions of the plans – although in The Park Collection the garage doors are to the side. The house on the left side of the entry to Jeremy Place has been enlarged beyond the original footprint, and is almost unrecognizable compared to what it used to look like.
