Description
Accessed from behind, this house is on a busy road. The picture of the front didn't turn out, but it's very plain and quite hard to notice from the road, as it's shrouded by trees. No apparent way in, but I guess you could try!

The cultural heritage value is related to its design or
physical value as a good example of a vernacular pioneer farmstead. The house is
believed to have been built in 1834 and covered with vinyl siding in the 1920s. It is
distinguished by a side-gable roof, a three-bay front facade, a distinct chimney, and
simple door surrounds.
In the 1830s, the property was associated with the Elliot family, one of Brampton?s
most prominent early settlement families. John Elliot is credited as being the
founder of Brampton, as he endorsed the naming of the Township after his
hometown in England. The farmhouse was connected to the Elliot family for six
generations, from 1834 to 2005.

The cultural heritage value is also supported by its
contextual value, as the rural lot contributes to the significance of the property. As
a pioneer farmstead, it presents a considerably important cultural heritage
landscape.

The long laneway and orchard that were pictured in the 1877 Historical Atlas of Peel remain in the same location. The mature trees, shrubs and hedgerows further enhance rural character of the lot.
