Description of Historic Place
The Morine Farm Residence is a Municipal Heritage Property in the Rural Municipality of Estevan located approximately 11 km southeast of the City of Estevan. The property features a 2 1/2-storey brick farm house, built in 1925, and is surrounded by a non-contributing shelter belt.
The heritage value of the Morine Farm Residence lies in its status as a representation example of the large farm house's constructed in the 1920’s. The impressive proportions and presence of the house, combined with the sobriety of the detailing, suggests a mix of vernacular and Georgian architecture. The building features a square, symmetrical layout with a large hip roof accented by two large dormer windows. The building’s windows and doors are not evenly spaced in the façade and relate to the spatial arrangement of the interior, giving the building a casual flavour. The interior of the home boasts many original fixtures, including hardwood floors, oak trim, as well as bathroom fixtures. The residence was built with bricks from the local Estevan brick yard.
