Right in the centre of Saskatoon lies Nutana, a largely residential area that neighbours the city’s central business district. The neighbourhood traces its origins back to the first permanent settlement of the Temperance Colonization Society, in 1883, and remnants of that old age include Trounce House and the Marr Residence.

Due to its age, many of the residences in Nutana are historical buildings with a good portion of the development (approximately 40%) dating back to before 1945. Many of the houses here are large and rich in character, mostly because the area was once heavily inhabited by the wealthy. Keeping up with tradition, the above average price tags for real estate in this area make it a popular neighbourhood for high-income earners.
