Located in Brampton sits a little house that has been abandoned for at least three years. The house is locked up tight and there was a beeping noise coming from inside. It sounded like the batteries in the smoke detector were low! From what I could see through the window, there was not much inside. Whoever owns this property has gone to great lengths to keep people out (including using a shovel to prop the door closed from the inside!) It looks as though the basement was flooded at some point as I could see puddles of water on the basement floor. Around back there is a barn that contained little inside and an old garage where someone appeared to have fixed cars. One unusual feature is a well at the front of the house! This house is located on a BUSY street and there is a good chance you WILL be noticed! I had two people come up to me in five minutes asking what I was doing. Once I told them my story about being interested and photographing abandoned houses, they went on their way. One of the passers-by told me the house had been empty for three years and that a strip mall was to be built on the property - however this never came to pass.

Update: 05JU15:
There is a new ZuM Transit bus stop being constructed just in front of the home. The house is boarded up and I doubt very much it will be standing for too much longer.

Sad to say that this place has been demolished.

Another one bites the dust. Nothing left now but an empty lot.

New boards on the house and garage now.
