In Manitoba’s quiet township of South Headingley, you wouldn’t expect to find a modern architectural marvel.

Located just south of Roblin Boulevard, 490 Seekings Street is a striking modernist abode that contrasts against the vast rural landscape that surrounds it. Built in 2006, this two-storey home is the work of Winnipeg architect, Sasa Radulovic of 5468796 Architecture. For those who desire a large, secluded property with a unique twist, this three-bedroom residence delivers an unparalleled living experience that architecture enthusiasts can appreciate.


The distinctive exterior of this home is certain to catch the attention of passersby. The modular structure features a textured metal and wood paneling façade, complemented by interlocking paving and manicured lawns throughout the grounds. A rock swale leads to 490 Seekings Street’s private pond – complete with a waterfall – which you can observe from the comfort of a covered floating dock. 

The front entryway extends into an expansive living and dining area, lit by large, picturesque windows from floor to ceiling. The open concept space provides ample room for hosting and entertaining, or inventing new dishes in the adjacent U-shaped kitchen which caters a handy prep sink, a gas cooktop and high-end appliances. An ethanol fireplace, ceiling fans and heated floors help to keep this space at optimal temperatures throughout all of the seasons. 

A flight of floating stairs takes you to a cozy loft den, an idyllic nook for reading or quiet study. The primary bedroom across the hallway showcases a unique open-concept bathroom, complete with a free-standing pedestal vanity and a soaker tub. A set of double doors open onto a secluded balcony, perfect for watching the sun rise or set over the fields of South Headingley. 

For tinkerers and hobbyists, this home features an expansive heated garage and generously-sized bedrooms where you can spend your free time indulging in your favourite pastimes. 

“No expense was spared in creating this lofty and sun-lit home. 490 Seekings Street breaks away from the conventional and delivers a stunning living space with all of the luxury fixtures one can anticipate from such a unique property.

This property is also a short distance from Beaudry Provincial Park, plus walking trails, schools and major thoroughfares.”
