I have listed a new property at 718 SASKATCHEWAN CRES E in Saskatoon.
Welcome to 718 Saskatchewan Crescent East! Location is everything and this home has some of the best views of the city and river you can find. Right out the front door you are walking along the river and only a couple blocks to Broadway, downtown or the University. There is no other property like this you will find in Saskatoon. Truly unique in style and architecture, this 2.5 storey house was designed and built by renowned architect Frank P. Martin and given Heritage Status by the City of Saskatoon. Hardwood and tile throughout with granite countertops and custom quarter sawn white oak cabinetry in the kitchen, living room and bathroom. Major renovations were completed in 2007 in the Arts and Crafts style to pay homage to the heritage and history of the home. With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms there is plenty of room to raise a family and enjoy the incredible location along this prestigious street. The master bedroom is quite large with double closets and plenty of room for storage and of course incredible views of the river valley. A second bedroom on level two faces riverfront with the third bedroom on level 3 overlooking the city! You will love the 3rd level sitting area with such incredible views. The house itself is built to last and was far ahead of its time. Built with masonry construction instead of timber framing and using steel trusses for joists as well as integrating concrete flooring, this home is extremely soundproof and solid. Forms for pilings used in the construction of the University Bridge were used to build a sub-foundation consisting of 16 foot piles supporting thick fir beams underneath the home. An extremely private backyard contains a hottub, gas bbq, rear attached single garage, brick patio and has additional parking behind the garage inside a unique second garage door which closes its off from the alley. The character has been kept inside this lovely home and no doubt you will love the care and attention given to it throughout.
