The Heart Lake Mystery

I have a bit of a mystery that perhaps my readers can help me solve. As far as I know Bramalea Limited never built in the Villages of Heart Lake area of Brampton during the 1970s. Yet, there is one semi-detached paring in that area that is a carbon-copy of Bramalea Limited’s plans built in the L-Section of Bramalea (specifically, in the Moore Park and Bramalea Estates Semis neighbourhoods).

So, did a builder completely copy the design…or did Bramalea Limited just built this one pair for some reason?

Below is the pair in the Villages of Heart Lake:

Here are two images of the same design in Bramalea (with updated windows):Laurelcrest leacrest

Bramalea Limited also built the same design inĀ Amberlea, Pickering, as shown below.

Below is a portion of an article from 1977 showing the model homes for Bramalea Estates Semis showing the design on the left.

I would love to read any insights or theories from my blog readers.
