Sco­tia charmer

Class neigh­bour­hood, ren­o­vated home

Winnipeg Free Press - Section F - - HOMES - By Todd Lewys

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 brick ex­te­rior and two-car garage breaks the turn-of-the-cen­tury mould of the Sco­tia Street clas­sic.

The home at 307 Sco­tia Street was an­gled to take ad­van­tage of the river view.

One of three bed­rooms that are found on the

up­per level is warm and bright.
