About the Property
Live in the enchantment of Alberta’s history with modern conveniences at 'The Brick House'; a century-old gem nestled in Fort Saskatchewan. A home rich with stories, now ready to be part of your family's next chapter.
The home's history begins in the early 1900s; Thomas and Harriett Carscadden set off to create a thriving life at 'Pine Square,' their new 300-acre homestead in Fort Saskatchewan. In the 1920s among the whispering winds of the prairies, Mrs. Carscadden built her dream home – 'The Brick House,' a haven of warmth and comfort she designed for her family. The Carscadden Family created a sanctuary, surrounded by trees they planted themselves, still standing guard today. Their sons eventually took over and turned it into a dairy farm, serving the Fort Saskatchewan community with milk delivery for many years.
The Bilou family began a new era when they purchased a 120-acre section with The Brick House in 1948. They made a living as farmers as well, and added their mark on the beautiful homestead; they enhanced the home with a larger master bedroom, an inviting front veranda, and an upstairs bedroom and bathroom - turning the home into an even more nurturing cocoon for family life.
Even when the farm was sold and subdivided in 1968, 'The Brick House' stood tall, retaining its distinct spirit. When Westland Park Townhomes was developed in 1973, Murray Hill Developments preserved the homestead, now a unique island of rustic charm nestled amidst urban conveniences. For the past 50 years, The Brick House has been home to the Caretakers of Westland Park.
And now, for the first time in its history, 'The Brick House' opens its doors to you as a rental home. In 2023; we breathed new life into this historic property with a thoughtful renovation that stays true to its roots, fusing modern farmhouse aesthetics with its rich, storied past.
