Property description

Enjoy the sweeping ocean views from this very tastefully decorated, three bedroom, ranch-style home. The home is an exquisite, jaw dropping gallery of art and collectables. Feed your soul on the garden or ocean vistas from every window. Relax on 1/3 acre of lovely gardens and 400 square foot deck with barbecue and comfy patio furniture. The gardens have interest, charm and garden art in every corner. Guests compare it to Butchart Gardens only not quite so big! Watch the weekend sailing regattas and marine traffic from the front rooms. Please see more of the home and extensive gardens at www.havensview.com.

Your home is located in charming Cadboro Bay, just minutes from downtown Victoria but far removed from the hustle and bustle. Stroll to parks, walking trails, beach, golf, tennis, university, and quaint village with all the amenities. Enjoy a 5 minute walk to the shallow, warm waters of the sandy, driftwood strewn Cadboro Bay Beach great for a romantic dinner picnic or perfect for the little ones. The newly renovated beach park boasts three 30 foot climbing animals, a pirate’s ship, zip line and many other entertaining amenities for the kids, just two blocks from your vacation home. The five kilometer scenic beach route to downtown Victoria’s many attractions offers stunning ocean and snow capped mountain vistas.

180 degree ocean views form the sun-soaked, large, comfortable living and dining rooms complete with wood burning fireplace, large screen TV, and excellent sound system. Convenient ocean view office area. Large, fully-equipped gourmet kitchen and breakfast area with views and walk-out to the unbelievable 1/3 acre perfectly manicured flower gardens and deck complete with barbecue, dining and lounging furniture.

Master bedroom enjoys panoramic views of gardens, queen bed, and small sitting area. Second bedroom enjoys panoramic ocean views and lovely art deco bedroom suite. Enjoy garden vistas from the third bedroom. This beautiful home is perfect for the extended family and is enjoyed by romantic couples as well.

Owner info

About the owner: I am a native of Santa Cruz California, fell in love with Victoria at first site so made it my home in which to start my family 34 years ago. I am still here and am so grateful to be a Canadian citizen now. Canada is very good to its people. As a life long artist and career graphic designer I have brought my creativity to this whole property from the uniquely decorated interior to every inch of the third acre yard.

Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
It was all about the view! I had a view growing up in California and one of my goals as an adult was to have a wonderful water view. I realized that goal when I purchased this piece of heaven 25 years ago. I walk the beach here most days and think I would perish if I did not have this fresh and clean Canadian ocean air to breath.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is a perfect example of vintage California Ranch style home. Altho it has been updated beautifully it retains all the charm and appointments of this wonderful style. It has always reminded me of a perfectly preserved vintage Chris Craft boat.
