The residents want the court to overturn a city council decision that stripped the historic designation from Dennistoun House, the former residence of a justice of the Manitoba Court of Appeal.
The house is one of four on Roslyn Road slated for demolition to make way for a 74-unit condominium complex.
The residents are asking for a judicial review of council's June 24 decision to remove Dennistoun House, at 166 Roslyn Rd., from the Building Conservation List.
Also named in the action are the executors to the estate of the woman who owns the Roslyn Road home.
The issue is set for court Oct. 6.
In documents filed at Court of Queen's Bench, the residents -- Judith Lehn, David Wilken, Leonard Chackowsky and Jennifer Lukovich -- want the court to make a ruling that demolition of Dennistoun House would violate the area's neighbourhood plan.
The documents state that council made its decision without any proof that the house could not be repaired and did not have an independent structural engineering report.
A spokesman for the City of Winnipeg was not available to comment.
