Where $17,095 buys you a detached 3 bedroom bungalow with garage. Yes, the price is right, no you are not dreaming, no it is not a misprint, but well you may just be 45 years too late!
Sorry didn't mean to trick you, but we did get your attention to take a look at one of the City of Brampton's renowned and sought after neighbourhoods, picturesque "Peel Village".
This beautiful neighbourhood finds friendly neighbours, beautiful manicured gardens, people comfortably walking their dogs, riding bikes or casually strolling the streets at night. Schools, churches, parks, shopping, golfing and transportation are all within a convenient distance.
We like to describe it as a "Beaver Cleaver" type neighbourhood from the hit t.v. series of yesteryear, "Leave It To Beaver".
Peel Village is a very friendly neighbourhood that is the perfect spot to settle, raise your family and enjoy life for years to come. In fact, that is what many have done already. We find that a number of the original Owner's children here in Peel Village, grew up, moved away, only to return and purchase a home here when it became their turn to settle down and raise a family!
Peel Village was a dream brought to reality by Brampton Builder Charlie Watson.
When Charlie Watson dreamed, he must have dreamed big and envisioned a self sufficient neighbourhood because that is how you would describe Peel Village. City transit routes tour the roads that border ‘Peel Village', which will take you anywhere you need to go, these roads also give easy connections to nearby major highways. There are convenient neighbourhood strip malls for picking up late night snacks and the major Shoppers World Plaza is also nearby. Public and Catholic schools, the beautiful Peel Village park that is a favourite for wedding photos, and even gas stations for gas or a quick oil change are found right within the neighbourhood.
When people seek out a home in "Peel Village", Brampton, what do they find? Well, a large array of styles and floor plans. There are bungalows, raised bungalows, sidesplits, backsplits and two storey models. Some of the homes have carports, some have single garages and some have double garages with most of them on 50 x 120 ft. lots. What people are sure to find is happiness.
Oh, what about that $17,095 for a detached raised bungalow with garage? Well that was the cost to become a happy homeowner in "Peel Village" in the City of Brampton, back in 1964 when they first started selling the area. These detached homes on 50 ft. Lots would set you back anywhere from $15,195.00 to $18,195.00. At that time your down payment would have ranged from $1,495.00 to a whopping $2,645.00 minus a government subsidy that was available at the time of $500.00! By the way property taxes on that 50 ft. Lot was approximately $20.00 to $31.00 per month.
They called them the good old days, now we know why. Today a detached home in the popular ‘Peel Village' neighbourhood, will range from $270,000 to $535,000 with taxes now approximately $3500 -$5000.00 range. Of course now a great number of the homes have been generously upgraded and modernized, pools and additions have been added and the landscaping has nicely matured.
Today "Peel Village" is even more desirable than it was back in the ‘60's. It is a wonderful place to live and play and a neighbourhood we confidently recommend.
