I am back in action!

It has been a long and grueling few months of battling cancer and having a stem-cell transplant, but I am on the mend and I feel great! A special thank you for all of the thoughts, prayers and encouraging messages!

It is time to start blogging again and I have more great postings to share.

As my readers know, I am always on the lookout for missing floor plans and information on Bramalea. Over the past little while I have been delighted to receive a handful of plans that I am missing, so I wanted to share them below. Interestingly, it turns out that they are all from the L-Section. For those of you who might be new to my blog, I have a post dedicated to plans I am missing from my collection: Missing floor plans needed! Please keep them coming!

This plan is from Nortonville Estates West – Broles:

From Moore Park (the area where I grew up) in the L-Section. This is the only plan that I have for the houses in that area!

This plan is from the Laura Court and Lime Ridge Drive area. For some reason it would only upload sideways… As I suspected, it is one of the same plans from the Master’s Series in Deerchase. It appears that the other houses in the area were also built from the same plans as those in the N-Section.lime ridge and laura 2

 More blog posts to come…stay tuned!

Nortonville Estates West – Broles

When: Built circa 1988

Where: Leeward Crescent, Laidlaw Avenue, Lightwood Place

Who: Broles Building Corporation

What I Know: The master bedroom suites in these houses are very luxurious with walk-in-closets, very large ensuite bathrooms and some even have sitting areas. The Belwood has a very large master bedroom retreat over the garage reminiscent of some Bramalea Limited designs built in the early 1980s.

Some of the designs are unique including the Rosseau raised bungalow and the Joseph with the master bedroom on its own level above the garage. The Simcoe is an interesting design as it looks like the second garage could be removed and the house built on a narrower lot.

Windows are a key feature of many of the designs, many having multiple bay windows. This aspect of the designs is mentioned in the newspaper article reproduced below.

On Leward Drive at Laidlaw Avenue are two alternate versions of the Haliburton, as the houses have been raised above the garage with an extra room added in its place.

I am missing the floor plans for 30-foot lots in this development.
