ESTATE SALE

Just a few blocks from prestigious Churchill Drive & Churchill Drive Park, sits this longstanding family treasure in NEED of RESTORATION. Built in an era when quality & workmanship were commonplace, and especially so, in this esteemed, historic LOCATION. Solidly positioned, mid-block, on a wide, tranquil street under a canopy of mature trees. These rooms were often occupied by members of Winnipeg’s intellectual elite & artistic social class, as well as many of those professionals who appreciated the fine arts; often gathering over meals, coffee or tea to enjoy music, discuss books & authors, share ideas, debate social issues, philosophy, prose and political discourse!  In many ways, Riverview’s theater of dreams.

This distinct Two-Storey home was originally built in 1913, and continues its bold presence on this quiet, 
peaceful, over-sized 50 ft. x 128 ft. Riverview LOT.

The home provides 1479 square feet of living area above the full, high & never-flooded, partially-finished BASEMENT which includes 5 bright windows, a stone foundation, and a hot water, natural gas Boiler. It’s a full basement except under the Sunroom addition. It provides good height, and there’s a useful workshop area, plus lots of storage space.

Original materials & finishes on the Main Level include-

  • Original Brass Doorknobs/Hardware
  • Hardwood Floors (seem to be Maple)
  • Rare quarter-sawn Oak millwork
  • extraordinarily Tall 10″ Baseboards & wide Casings

Rare, imported detailed ‘LINCRUSTA’ embossed Wallcoverings adorn a formal DINING ROOM.

High Ceilings dominate through the DINING ROOM to a LARGE FOYER (with private Entry) and the adjacent ENORMOUS LIVING ROOM featuring a wood-burning BRICK-faced FIREPLACE.

The roomy KITCHEN with an array of Cabinets/Drawers, Hardwood Floor & Pot Lighting, provides direct DINING ROOM access, and is OPEN TO a bright CEDAR SUNROOM with several Windows that offer views to the beautiful perennial-filled, fenced BACKYARD!

OAK STAIRS to the UPPER LEVEL spacious BEDROOMS including a mid-floor OFFICE or STUDY (which can easily be converted back to a 3rd BEDROOM), and is equipped with a set of exterior Doors to a POTENTIAL Balcony or Porch (as in original build) that can be developed once again. Most of this entire upper level is graced by Fir Wood Flooring. Spacious Closets in each Bedroom and High Ceilings.

Bright 4-PC BATHROOM features a large Window, Oak Wall Panels and Laminate Flooring.

The large, FENCED BACKYARD can be revitalized to its former charm & utility. A plethora of Perennials include Hydrangeas & Peonies, plus prevalent trees including Ash & others.

Detached GARAGE in need of restoration + adjacent PAD provides vehicle parking.

This historic home is very well-placed.  An OUTSTANDING, sought-after LOCATION with tremendous intrinsic VALUE! This could be your ultimate restoration project. An opportunity to revive and rejuvenate in this prestigious, historic community. You’re within walking distance of many neighbourhood parks and playgrounds. There are several schools nearby including Riverview Montessori and Ecole Riverview School. Grocers, Dining establishments, Taverns, and Coffee Shops enrich the area and help bring this community together. It’s wonderful.
