A Notable Infill A Look Inside In the Spring 2014 issue of Saskatoon HOME magazine there was a story titled Dream Home For a Dollar. This article told the story of how a home won in a Kinsmen lottery in 1956 was moved from the exhibition to Spadina Drive, and remains a very noticeable home today. Back to present day, whether you bike, run or walk the winding riverbank trails that follow Spadina Crescent, or

drive along the idyllic treecanopied street, you’ve likely noticed two new modern homes with striking red brick and grey stucco façades, just past Duchess Street across from the weir. The one on the left is the 2014 Kinsmen lottery home (an interesting coincidence). We thought Saskatoon HOME would take you on a tour as it is Saskatoon’s first infill lottery home, the first to be built in a

core neighbourhood and the first one to overlook the South Saskatchewan River. Built by Lexis Homes, this riverfront showstopper can also lay claim to being the first ever Mike Holmes Approved lottery home in Saskatchewan. A Nod to Detail Every room of this threebedroom home is beautifully furnished with contemporary furniture and stylish accents.

A home office and fitness studio complement the space, creating a successful hybrid of high style and functionality. Interior features echo the exterior finishes with a vertical band of floor-to-ceiling red brick flanking one side of the gas fireplace. The brick was reclaimed from an old Chicago warehouse, giving the space an industrial feel with a vintage appeal. A richly veined wood dining table
