I have listed a new property at 945 WELLINGTON in WINNIPEG.
Rare 4900 sq ft bungalow on a 1.1 acre riverfront lot on one of the most prestigious streets in Winnipeg.In 1950,this special home was blt for a lumber merchant using exotic woods,local tyndal stone & Frank Lloyd Wright's prairie hse design principle.The current owners were told that it was engineered so that 6 additional stories could be built on 2 sections of the home.The special 43'x35'familyroom is the most incredible and uniquely designed room with views to the river,tyndall stone floor,aquarium and wet bar.I would design a new kitchen in this room. A 1500 sq ft indoor pool and hottub area also overlooks the rear yard.You are going to redevelop this home because in 1950, it was not about bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms, it was about entertaining. You will work with the original structure, possibly go up to develop bedrooms with views. You will be a person that likes contemporary and uniqueness. You want a home like no other. You will be on one of the best stretches of the crescent.
