Sutherland said the home hasn’t been designated a historical site but any new owners could look at getting that recognition or look to redevelop it. She said the price of the home is appropriate given the area and size of the house.

Sutherland said she hopes the new homeowners love the home as much as the old ones.

According to the City of Edmonton, the three-storey brick home is designed after the Italian Renaissance style with its pyramidal roof and wide overhanging eaves. Construction is estimated to have cost between $3,000 to $5,000 at the time, which would be around $134,000 when adjusted for inflation.
