Winnipeg’s ritziest area – the only street where the homes would be more expensive is right on Wellington Crescent – is studded with stately houses situated on even larger plots of land, all just 10 minutes from downtown. Tuxedo would lay top billing to these homes, particularly along Park Boulevard and in the blocks surrounding the iconic Assiniboine Park (often called old Tuxedo, where the original modest homes are continually being replaced by mansions). With so much money in the area, there’s no shortage of amenities including golf, tennis and the like, along with all the splendour of the aforementioned Assiniboine Park – with its summer and winter trails.
All that said, you don’t have to be a millionaire to live here, as the area also features high-rise apartments with sweeping views of the city, while just the east is Charleswood, one of the city’s original suburbs where housing prices are more modest (riverside houses being an exception) and often located in forested areas where deer and other wildlife are abundant. Charleswood also has a continually growing culinary scene, while just south of Tuxedo you’ll find the shopping mecca of Seasons of Tuxedo – featuring Outlet Collection Winnipeg, IKEA and so much more.
