This is what a $3.5 million mansion looks like in Winnipeg
A historic building in Winnipeg has officially hit the real estate market and it doubles as a truly unique residence.
Built 116 years ago, the 8,360-square-foot building, at 234 Portage Ave., Winnipeg, is currently for sale for a whopping $3.5 million and is proof that everything is not always what it seems.
The building's main floor is being rented by a laser-eye surgery clinic while the second floor has three spacious offices with a reception area, washroom and kitchen.
However, it's behind the offices where things get really interesting, as the owners have created an unusual but extremely elegant residence.
Tucked away in the residence is an indoor garage with all the tools you'll need to keep your car in perfect condition while never having to step outside.
Designed in a neoclassical style with Greek accents, the residence features a marble fireplace and a chimney that seemingly disappears into a stained glass ceiling with Greek statues that mimic those at the Heritage Museum in St. Petersburg.
The property's rooftop deck includes huge skylights, a hot tub, and an outdoor shower and was even featured in the movie Siberia starring Keanu Reeves.
Unsurprisingly, the kitchen includes high-end appliances with a lovely lookout into the dining area.
The absolutely stunning bedrooms will also make you feel like you've entered another era.
Perhaps the enormous laundry room will motivate you to actually to get all your laundry done.
Let's just say working from home wouldn't be all that bad if you lived here.
