Welcome to “The House That Winks”! There is so much character and history to this stunning home… you could write a book on it. In fact, someone did! Featured in several publications over the years, including the “Rosedale Stories – A Community Remembers” by Kate Reeves (2000), “Dream Home” in Homemakers Magazine 25th Anniversary Tour (Jan 1992) and “Forward Thinking Kitchens” Western Living Magazine (March 2002). This property was even part of the 1991 Alberta Ballet House and Garden Tour as an “Historical Renovation Home”. The nickname for the house comes from Ira White who was the original builder in 1927 – referring to the asymmetrical gables on the front of the home making it uniquely memorable. Keeping tradition in mind while modernizing a time-honored design, the home was renovated in 1984 by Richard Lindseth Architects in collaboration with the current owner. Meticulous detailing echoing the original architecture, transformed the home from a 900 ft2 bungalow to a 2115 ft2 2 storey masterpiece. Period detailing on the interior architecture has been reproduced wherever possible. There have been numerous renovations over the years, culminating in a fresh new design and a rebuild of the entire home in 2000. The well thought out individual spaces, with the high ceilings and all of its heritage detailing, bring a sense of ease and fluidity that can be hard to find in many of today’s homes. There is so much more to say about this unique property. Please take a moment to view all of the photos, including the thoughtfully prepared list of 10 reasons the current owner will never forget the first home she ever loved.
