More Information

John W. Graham, in his 1960 book "A Guide to the Architecture of Greater Winnipeg" said of 1103 Wellington Crescent: "This is one of the first large Winnipeg houses which did not follow one of the many previously adopted eclectic styles. The extensive use of wood and glass and the great depth of the property produce a house closely integrated with the outdoors with little loss of privacy."

Original owner David Slater was a property developer involved with the development of GBR-designed Polo Park.
