One thing that we may take for granted in Winnipeg is the selection of neighbourhoods we have to choose from. Unlike most other major cities, where very few neighbourhoods offer such selection and affordability, Winnipeg has numerous communities for the average home seeker to choose from (a staggering 236).
Not only are we fortunate to have the option to select an area near things we love and appreciate, be that friends, family, work, nature, or amenities, but we can also choose the type and style of community suited to our lifestyle.
Whether you’re looking for a character home on a tree-lined street, a converted warehouse loft downtown, or a new home in the suburbs – Winnipeg has it all.
The Sage Creek neighbourhood
Home to an abundance of conveniences including a growing Village Centre, an upcoming school, and plenty of walking trails and wetlands, Sage Creek is a warm and vibrant community located off of Lagimodiere Boulevard in southeast Winnipeg.
Sage Creek offers close proximity to the Perimeter Highway providing easy access for cottage country-goers. Other major routes provide a short drive to both the St. Vital and Regent shopping areas, and about 15 minutes to downtown and post-secondary institutions.
Although the list of reasons Sage Creek is a popular choice among homebuyers is ever-growing, the residents of Sage Creek love it for one main reason: it feels more like a small town than a city suburb.
Here, residents walk, bike, or rollerblade to pick up fresh bread and dinner staples, while visiting with neighbours along the way. At the Village Centre, friends gather over coffee and shopkeepers know their “regulars.” It’s a peaceful and community-centric lifestyle that has proven to be extremely popular.
Just a short walk from the Village Centre, you’ll find StreetSide’s Bluestem townhomes, featuring modern, livable floor plans perfect for every buyer.
It offers a unique lifestyle that provides the comforts of a detached house, including garages, private patios, and spacious multi-level living, with the ease of maintenance and affordability of a condominium. You can spend more time living, and less time keeping up your home, without sacrificing room to grow.
“Each townhome comes with a generous front wood porch and a spacious sun balcony, so residents get to enjoy entertaining outdoors without the work or hassle that comes with maintaining a yard or shoveling the driveway,” explains StreetSide’s Sales and Marketing Manager, Jessica Willis.
“From our Cedar plan at 1,046 square feet, to our Tamarack at 1,552 square feet, we’ve made sure to build floor plans that are suited to a variety of buyers. We have young, first-time homebuyers who love the space and value they get with the Cedar, including a single attached garage.
“Professionals, families and downsizers appreciate the extra features of the Tamarack, like the 12-foot kitchen island and double attached garage. In between, we have other sizes and layouts that offer the same great living experience, but allow buyers to choose a floor plan that feels right for them,” adds Willis.
Interiors are classically stylish, with a variety of designer-selected finishing packages showcased in quick-possession homes.
“Our buyers just love the townhome lifestyle,” says Willis. “Within the last year, we have sold out of two similar townhome projects at Bridgwater Forest, and StreetSide was very excited to bring such a successful design to Sage Creek.”
With move-in-ready townhomes starting at $279,900 including GST, appliances and upgrades, it might be time to start thinking about a new place to call home.
