A&S Homes joins Winnipeg rental market with new luxury building

Submitted on

A&S Homes is moving into Winnipeg’s rental market for the first time, with the launch of its new luxury rental building, Ancaster Gate.

Ancaster Gate is a 69 unit building at 25 Ancaster Gate in Bridgwater Forest. This building, with one and two bedroom units has been designed as a condo. That means its structure and finishes offer hard-to-find levels of individualization and luxury.

We’ve chosen to join the rental market because we want to bring the experience we’ve gained from 40 years in the business to a new segment of Winnipeg’s population.

We pride ourselves on taking feedback and incorporating information into the design and layout of each of our buildings, and the experience at Ancaster Gate is no exception.

We’ve spent a lot of time and effort thinking about how someone would live in each of these suites, which has led us to develop a design that optimizes the space in every room.

“The rental experience at Ancaster Gate is like no other. Looking for your new home or next rental property can be difficult and exhausting, our team makes the transition simple and easy,” said Nina McCall, property manager at Stevenson Real Estate Services.

From the second you walk in the door, whether to tour the display suite, move into your new home, or even relocate out of our building, our team is here to help from the get-go.


Energy efficiency

Ancaster Gate has been designed with the newest energy efficient technologies.

All light fixtures in common areas are LED, while every suite has a combination of LED and compact fluorescent lighting.

Renters at Ancaster Gate have total control over the heating and cooling in their suite, and all utilities are included in the rent.

Plus, each unit is equipped with a washer and energy efficient dryer.


Above and beyond

Ancaster Gate’s soundproofing exceeds mandated requirements by 10x required levels.

“Our tenants will be able to enjoy a quiet and private living space, without having to worry about the neighbour above or beside them walking, listening to TV or music,” McCall said.  

“Our above and beyond sound-proofing provides our tenants with the luxurious and comfortable environment they want and need.”
