When: Built circa 2006
Where: New Hampshire Court
Who: Century Gove Homes
What I Know: This in-fill development was built on land that appears to have been set aside for a school.
The layouts of the houses are very much a product of the time. The lot widths are narrow, but the garages are set in to the massing of the houses, as opposed to sticking out in front common with the houses built more than a decade before just one street to the north. With the inset garage and rooms above them the second levels of these plans are larger than the main floors, allowing room for large ensuite bathrooms and walk-in closets. Two of the designs have a one-car garage and thus have large front-facing windows on the main floor. This mixing of one-car and two-car garage houses is something that Bramalea Limited did in other parts of Bramalea many years earlier.
There are a handful of other in-fill sites in Bramalea that were built on some time after the surrounding area was developed. These sites remained vacant as they were originally set aside in the master plan for schools, places of worship or shopping, that were never built. A few such sites that come to mind include the southwest corner of Howden Boulevard and Dixie Road, the townhouses on Vodden Street East between Laurelcrest Street and Lone Oak Avenue, and the extension of Locksley Place at Hillside Drive. I am missing the plans for the latter two mentioned, so if anyone has them I would love to share on the blog.
The Site Plan below has a different name for the street. I am glad that they changed the name to New Hampshire Court to fit in with the N-Section.
