Winnipeg For Sale / Sold September 2010

My semi-regular look at what's on offer around Winnipeg.

The most expensive pile I came across was this doozy on River Road in St. Andrews for a cool $1.9 million. What ? Only four bedrooms ?! I'll have to think about that !

Just a few doors down, a piece of Manitoba history appears to have sold. The circa 1850s girls school Twin Oaks. For more on the site's history. Asking price was a mere $1.15m.

A little closer to home...do you like cheese ? Then this is your dream come true ! La Grotta del Formaggio (the Cheese Cave, I believe that translates into) on Sargent is for sale ! Cool store, cool street.

With all the recent buzz about Central Park and the great African influx to the area I wonder if the place will ever get back to being a decent place to live ? The building at 411 Cumberland, right across from the park, has a few units for sale. I found one, complete with rental tenant in place, for just $49.5k. Here's a top floor suite for $79k. Seriously, for the paltry mortgage I'd put up with a heck of a lot and go on a couple of nice vacations every year !

This Osborne Village building is for sale at $1.9m. It notes 'sitting retail tenants' but if you've been following the recent saga of American Apparel you might want to have an idea for an alternate anchor.

Feeling like going underground ? The tailor shop in the Concourse is for sale ! It's a tiny place but, as the ad points out, the Monday to Friday, 8 am to 4 pm hours would be nice.

Here's the most interesting building for sale this month: 229 Pritchard Ave. (I love these little industrial looking gems in the midst of a residential street !). I'm not sure what the last business was but a quick check of the Free Press Archives shows that back in the 30s it was the Hebrew Friends Temple.
