When searching for a new place to live, house hunters usually have a list of significant features they hope to find in a property. Regardless of the set that you might have in mind, we reckon that curb appeal increases both a house’s charm and its memorability. That being said, a place in move-in ready condition with a good outside appearance can be quite hard to come by. Thankfully, the Saskatoon real estate market boasts some homes currently up for sale which come with visually attractive aspects.
Here are 3 examples of Saskatoon properties which we think have notable curb appeal:
#1 118 Perehudoff Crescent, Saskatoon, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, $459,900
We’re kicking off our list with the most affordable property of the bunch, this lovely 4-bedroom home in the Erindale real estate market. Located near the north-eastern edge of the city, it boasts proximity to good schools, exciting hiking trails and fun playgrounds.
At first glance, this home seems more than welcoming, thanks to its white-coloured, horizontal siding walls, charming dormer windows and double attached garage. The generous driveway provides an air of spaciousness, being able to accommodate multiple vehicles at the same time. The tastefully placed pot-plants and greenery which line the paved driveway combine well with the neutral-coloured building, adding to the smart frontal aspect.
#2 730 7th Avenue North, Saskatoon, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, $699,900
Second on our list is a freshly upgraded character home and an interesting example of City Park real estate. The excellent and highly sought-after location ensures ease of access to some of the most important amenities, including Kinsmen Park, the university, shops, public transport and even the mighty South Saskatchewan River.
The home itself has been recently renovated throughout and contains elements from the Georgian style. The multi-paned windows, the 2+ level design, the dormer window atop the roof and the portico entrance all hint at this particular architectural form. The nicely maintained front lawn, dotted with mature shrubs and a large tree provide not only plenty of shade, but also additional interest to this already characterful property.
#3 1502 Pohorecky Court, Saskatoon, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, $883,000
Last but not least, we present the priciest home in our list of three, in the form of this modern 4-bedroom designer home in the Evergreen real estate market. Situated at the city’s north-eastern periphery, this home offers a quiet, peaceful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Downtown Saskatoon.
The entire home is built from natural elements, including wood and stone, combining them with neutral-coloured stucco. Even at first glance the house is architecturally compelling, with multi-level roofs, decorative stone, and a variety of types of window. If you want a home with a completely unique appearance, maybe you won’t need to look any further. And with the interesting use of building materials combined with such a distinctive façade, you won’t have to worry about anyone else having a house with the same curb appeal.
All in all, it definitely doesn’t hurt a property to have notable curb appeal—a positive impression which stays in people’s minds. Whether we’re talking about humble, budget-friendly homes or fancy designer houses, we think this a big bonus. Which property of the three listed above do you think looks the nicest?
