The Gates of Bramalea

When: Built circa 1970-1971

Where: 475 Bramalea Road

Who: Consolidated Building Corporation and Ontario House Corporation

What I Know: I am missing the floor plans for the houses in this area, so if anyone has them, I would love to share them!

The two-story units have a carport, instead of a garage, but this allows for front-facing windows on the main floor (in the kitchen, I believe), something that would not be possible if there was a garage out front.

As with most of the townhouse complexes built in Bramalea at the time, there is an outdoor pool and play areas as part of the common elements.

Interestingly, the advertisements for the houses indicate that they came with a refrigerator, stove, hood fan and clothes dryer…but not a washing machine.
