This property blends modern with character in a perfect way.
March 8, 2017
Where it is
10027 89 Ave.
This two-storey property is situated in the Strathcona neighbourhood, which was named after Lord Strathcona, Hudson Bay Company Governor (1889 to 1914) and the man chosen to drive the “last spike” of the CPR transcontinental railway.
What to love
Exposed brick and a cedar roof make up the exterior and interior of this 1954 home, giving you all the charm of a character home, but with modern upgrades. There is also plenty of space, so you won’t have to worry about being cramped.
What to consider
Being within blocks of Whyte Avenue, you might get a noisy passerby every now and then. But, you’ll be walking distance to festivals and events that take place each summer on the Ave—and you won’t have to worry about parking.
