Winnipeg Homes for Sale: 5 Favourite Listings from Winnipeg Realtors

MLS listings fly in and out of our realty office, we learn and value each house for sale, but with ever-changing inventory, it’s easy to let a gem slip your mind. We’ve come across stunning architecture, dreamlike outdoor spaces, luxurious pools, and neighbourhoods with unbeatable charm.

With so many homes for sale in Winnipeg and new MLS listings going live daily, our realty team reflected on some of our past-favourite houses for sale in Winnipeg.

178 YALE AVENUE - CRESCENTWOOD, WINNIPEG

First up is this rarely available 2.5-storey home in Crescentwood, Winnipeg. Situated on Yale Avenue, it’s minutes from the lively Corydon area and River Heights amenities, making it a prime Winnipeg location.

The original home was stripped to its bones and then revitalized with premium renovations. Some of our favourite features of this home include the built-in gas fireplace, the Thermador appliances, its rooftop patio, and the natural flow of the layout. 

Also, who could overlook the incredible landscaping with a lush $120,000 outdoor pool? Not our team of realtors.

It will be hard to find another house for sale in Winnipeg of this magnitude.

42 CYPRESS RIDGE - SOUTH POINTE, WINNIPEG

Another favourite among our realty team is 42 Cypress Ridge in South Pointe. 

We were excited to list this home for sale because we knew we could capture the upscale features effortlessly. People who weren't looking to buy a house were even gushing over this MLS listing. 

The former Artista show home has stunning qualities like the quartz counters, brick accents, spa-like bathrooms, and the grand decorating throughout the 2,531 sq. ft. home. 

With ample property space, the backyard was fully designed and finished. It includes a huge patio space with a waterfall feature, hot tub, fireplace, and pool. The garage is even triple tandem with high ceilings. 

Best yet? The entire home (including the pool) utilizes home automation and can be run from your phone.

Any realtor would love to have an MLS listing like this one. We’re grateful to have had the chance to list this home for sale.

33 BAYGROVE POINT - BRIDGWATER LAKES, WINNIPEG

With a custom-built home, realtors always worry about “will another buyer love this property” or “can a buyer visualize owning this home through an MLS listing”. 

Custom-built homes tend to have personalization that might not suit all homeowners. In-person, these features are easier to sell and reinvent to potential buyers. Although, prospects have to be won over by the MLS listing, or they won't consider the property at all. So, marketing them can be a challenge. 

Our 2,068 sq. ft., 2-storey Bridgwater Lake home was the exception. This over-the-top custom-built and designed home for sale had such a grand foundation that potential buyers had no problem visualizing their personalizations. 

No expense was spared in the making of this home: massive double fridge, 2-tone maple cabinetry, a huge island with quartz counters, a grand front entrance with sliding barn doors, a centrepiece staircase, a built-in entertainment center with a fireplace, speakers + big windows, and a soaker tub in the main bedroom. When you step into the backyard, it feels like it stretches forever; there are endless opportunities for activities and development. 

Listing a house for sale of this grandeur is a gold mine for realtors. 


505 139 MARKET AVENUE - EXCHANGE DISTRICT, WINNIPEG

A penthouse in the Exchange District isn’t a standard real estate listing for our realty team, but we couldn’t refuse this remarkable home for sale. The Southend of Winnipeg is where we specialize, but any Winnipegger knows how spectacular and lovable the Exchange District is. 

Steps from your home, you have local cafes and restaurants, unique brick-and-mortar stores, and gorgeous waterfront pathways, plus you always have a secure parking spot for summer festivals. 

Aside from its ideal Winnipeg location, the industrial touches and condominium amenities make it a prime listing for millennials and young professionals. You have access to the fitness facility, rec-room with a lounge area, and a private rooftop patio. 

You can transform this home for sale into a cozy winter pad or whimsical summer spot.

81023 ROAD 7E ROAD - RM OF ROCKWOOD 

Our friends at our brokerage, RE/MAX Professionals, are listing this country-dream-home. 

It’s one of our favourites because the house’s structure is in mint condition, and you have loads of space to play with (6.46 acres total and 1,140 sq. ft of floor space). 

Sure, there are personalizations like a Bob Marley-themed room, a living room mural, and a bathroom that includes dark green appliances, but the architecture provides an extraordinary canvas. 

With curved and unique layouts, it’s ideal for a creative mind. The open concept living room/kitchen area brings airiness to the home. Plus, you have six bedrooms and two bathrooms–it’s the perfect place to host family gatherings or functions. 

Our personal favourite feature is the extraordinary outdoor space: you have a wooden wrap-around deck, a massive outdoor pool, a hot tub, patio space, and still room to add a trampoline, play structure, or other features to the landscape. 

Finding a house for sale with this much opportunity is rare; we can’t wait to see who the perfect buyer is.
