Class neighbourhood, renovated home
ONE word tends to come to mind when you think of homes on Scotia Street: classic. Drive down the street any day (or walk, jog or bike it on Sundays when it’s closed to vehicles) and there are vintage homes on either side.
One home — comprised of a brick exterior, with a two-car garage fronting it — breaks that turn-ofthe-century mould, said Coldwell Banker Preferred Real Estate’s Garry Loewen.
“It was built in 1987 by custom builder Victor Doerksen,” he said. “Unlike most homes in the area, it was built on piles — there’s even a section of basement (suitable for storage) under the garage. It’s an exceptionally well-constructed home; the piling makes the home extremely stable. That’s rare in this area.”

The home at 307 Scotia Street was angled to take advantage of the river view.
One of three bedrooms that are found on the
