WINNIPEG – Know a Winnipegger in the market for an $11-million house?
Yeah, we didn’t think so.
A Wellington Crescent home built in 2006 after media magnate Israel Asper’s home was bulldozed has been listed for sale at $11 million.
“When you have nothing left to prove!” the MLS listing for 1063 Wellington blasts in all capital letters. “This is an art deco European gated estate that took six years to build! Live luxuriously, entertain impressively and relax unconditionally.”
It’s a record listing price for a 23,000-square-foot home that likely wasn’t built as an investment in a city known for working-class money-savers. The previous Winnipeg MLS listing record was a Tuxedo home listed over $7 million that was eventually taken off MLS and later sold for closer to $6 million, said Peter Squire of Winnipeg Realtors.
The closest most Winnipeggers will ever get to such a house is a stroll through our photo gallery – so enjoy and try not to think about what it would be like to live in a house with 24 rooms, including two dens, two offices, a recreation room, a games room, a hobby room, a wine cellar, a great room, a family room and five spacious rooms simply listed as “other.”
