King’s Row Limited Edition

When: Built circa 1981-1982.

Where: Located on the outer ring of Lacewood Crescent.

Who: Built by Bramalea Limited

What I know: King’s Row Limited Edition houses were built on 36-foot wide lots. The semi-detached houses on the street (and in most of Bramalea) have lot widths as wide as these detached houses.

This development and the Heritage Series in the N-Section are some of the first instances in Bramalea where larger houses with luxurious features were built on narrow lot widths. All but one of these plans have a double-car garage, two plans have circular staircases, and all designs have a main floor family room and an ensuite bathroom off of the master bedroom.

As the advertisements show, the prices of the houses actually dropped in the second year that the houses were sold.

Kings Row in Bramalea Estates

When: Built circa 1978-1980

Where: Lascelles Boulevard, Leander Street (North of Lascelles Boulevard)

Who: Built by Bramalea Limited

What I know:  Begun in the 1970s, the area called Bramalea Estates is unique in that it includes parts of both the L-Section and the M-Section (including the portion that pops into the H-Section). Variations of these plans appear to also have been built in the J-Section.

I apologize that some parts of the plans are cut off, but these are the only versions of the plans that I have.

This design is an updated and expanded version of the Greenhouse plan built in the earlier Bramalea Estates in the M-Section.005

This plan is very similar to other designs Bramalea Limited built around the same time, including the Chianti model at the Connoisseur Collection also in the L-Section.004

This is one of the few overtly contemporary/modern style houses in Bramalea. It has a very interesting open-concept layout – with 2 staircases  – which is depicted in the second ad at the top of this post.
