It’s common knowledge Winnipeg lacks affordable housing options, especially for first-time homebuyers and seniors looking to downsize. Safety and convenience are always a consideration as is the amount of upkeep and operating costs. Until now, an energy efficiency home in an established neighbourhood for people just starting out or on a fixed income was nearly impossible to find.
What if you could have it all? A maintenance-free home, in a beautiful neighbourhood with sensible monthly costs. And, what if the community was nestled on the Red River and within walking distance to major amenities?
Rivergrove Estates is especially attractive for seniors and young families. Set on the banks of the Red River and backing onto Shooter’s Golf Course, the area is unmatched. Accessible to all major bus routes and schools, there is no shortage of conveniences close by in this quiet yet approachable community.
According to Guido Cerasani, developer/ president of Rivergrove Mobile Home Estates, this is the first development of its kind in the City of Winnipeg in more than forty years. Homes range in size from under 1000 to over 1500 square feet; with pricing starting under $200,000 and maxing out in the $250,000 range, this development is the opportunity of a lifetime, says Tom Creighton, Director of Marketing for Sunridge Homes and Marketing Manager for Rivergrove Estates. While not only eye-catching and modern, these homes by Sunridge Homes and Prairie Mobile Homes are also energy efficient, available in two, three and four-bedroom options with slate stainless-steel kitchen appliances.
At the forefront of innovation, most structures feature R60 ceiling insulation, R40 floor insulation and R22 insulation in the 2x6 exterior walls. Windows are all argon gas filled and manufacturer guaranteed to not leak for ten years.
Creighton adds, "The community connects with a maintained river trail, is pet friendly and enclosed, which means no through traffic." With common ownership, homeowners also receive a discount at the golf course restaurant adjacent to the property – yet another feature that contributes to a fluid and flexible way of life.
Rivergrove Estates has all city services in place and the monthly lot rental fee includes garbage pick-up, snow removal and park maintenance. Each lot comes with a two-car parking pad and fully sodded with available room on most lots for a garage, deck and storage shed. "We’ve tried to make this as easy as possible for our homebuyers. With everything thought of, our residents can just move in, unpack and get busy living their lives," says Creighton.
"Possession dates are flexible and mortgage financing up to 95% has been arranged with three different financial institutions. In fact, we have several show homes available for viewing and some homes that are ready for immediate possession."
With eighty-one spacious lots in the project and unique design options, these homes are a great alternative to apartment or condo living. Affordable living that offers the freedom to travel, spend summers at the cottage or just enjoy life is fully ready for you to unpack and enjoy today.
