Living East St. Paul

The municipality of East St. Paul offers much to those looking to bridge urban amenities with country lifestyle. Lying just outside the city of Winnipeg to the northeast, the community was once the domain of market gardeners, grain growers and ranchers. Today, East St. Paul is home to some of the most prestigious housing developments in Manitoba with residents enjoying large sized lots amid pastoral settings that give onto stunning river, forest and grassland views.

“I’ve lived in the municipality for  many years and have seen a lot of positive changes,” says local resident and Developer Johnathan Fahr, of The Fahr Group.  He comments that life in East St. Paul is one that has lower taxes than near-by Winnipeg, but offers most, if not all, the same amenities. Indeed, these attributes include good schools, recreational facilities and sport teams, not to mention shopping with major grocery retail close at hand. As well, the fact that the municipality is being built up with ‘A’ list developments means basic infrastructure like roads, water and sewer are all in top shape, a fact that lessens worry for home owners who don’t have to think about big expenses for civic improvements. “East St. Paul is also very close to places like the floodway, a spot that is great for recreation action, and is minutes away from 2 of Manitoba’s most prestigious golf courses Elmhurst and Pine Ridge.  Also a short ride and you are in Birds Hill Provincial Park. As well, there is easy entry to the Red River at a variety of points, for those who like to spend weekends in cottage country, expect to have at least half and hour taken off your travel time thanks to East St. Paul’s close proximity to major highways and routes that don’t include heavy city traffic.”

One thing that tends to amaze Fahr is that East St. Paul is not larger in terms of its population. “There are simply so many good qualities to this community. I find it surprising that there has not been a flood of people making the move for the lifestyle options,” he says, noting that the municipality is an area with low population density, and where people are not living on top of one another. “Its all here - the closeness to the city and its open air of country living all in a setting with lower taxes, lower crime and a lower cost per square foot. In East St. Paul this is living as life should be.”

Fahr remarks that the newest community in East St. Paul is Prairie Ridge that will allow new residents into the community with the living large lifestyle with 1 and 2 acre estate lots.
