 NOTES ON Scotswood Meadows


Scotswood Meadows is a micro-subdivision of infill housing, with development starting in 2015 and fully selling out of lots by 2022 (last of the construction is slated to end in 2023).  It was a smaller development, spearheaded by Seekville Incorporated, and had some of the most exacting standards and offered larger-than-average lots for construction.  Great, if you want a custom masterpiece, but for those wanting more affordable new-construction options, the price point may have been a touch out of reach.  Scotswood can be found within the larger area of Charleswood, in Southwestern Winnipeg.  Its borders are Community Row to the West, Rannock Avenue to the North, Scotswood Drive to the East, and the gorgeous Harte Trail to the South. When completed, this small community will host 80 custom-built homes, most worth well over $500,000. Scotswood Meadows is approximately 13 kilometers from the downtown core and 13 kilometers from the Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport.


Real Estate Trends

These homes were all custom-built, so there really is no standard or “track” type of home for the area, however the bulk of the floor plans have been bungalows as well as two-storey home options, all built between 2015 and 2023.  The price point for these homes ranges anywhere from $650,000 to well over $1 million depending on the lot and specifications of the home.  There are no condominium options within the area.
