This imposing, baronial house sits in an attractive area of Winnipeg called Armstrong Point, where many prominent early townspeople built their homes. They would probably do the same nowadays.....

.... The Assiniboine River caresses the gardens, there are parks, restaurants and historical buildings within easy reach and, for a big city, all is surprisingly peaceful. River Gate stands out with its large roof with dormer windows, brick-and-wood façade and tidy lawns. Barry and Leslie spent two years acquiring furniture before they found a house suitable for holding it, and the combination – after a lot of work - is an immaculate sequence of carefully considered, vibrant rooms. The early 20th-century house was built along the lines of a 17th-century Scottish country home and the new colours match those available at that period. The hallway is mustard, the sitting room a pale cranberry, and the dining room a grassy green – nothing wishy-washy about this! A solid oak staircase takes you up to the bedrooms, although not before you’ve checked out the playground of a lower level with its entertainment systems and billiards table. There are two large-windowed, wooden-floored suites, one wheat-coloured, one a brighter blue, while the other rooms are smaller, but very comfortable. The friendly Antoniuses (Antonii??) are keen to allow guests their own space and this is a great place to relax around the pool in summer or round a large natural fireplace in winter.
