Victoria house description

This unique, artistic, beautiful house is located on a quiet, tree lined street in JAMES BAY, half a block from the ocean and only a 10-15 min. walk to the inner harbor and downtown Victoria. You do not need a car to enjoy your holiday in Victoria in this location!. Cruise ships line the docks and miles of beaches are there for you to enjoy.

The house is 2300 sq feet (1150 sq feet on two levels) . It is very light, open concept, and a beautiful mixture of 'West Coast meets Urban living' (old fir beams and polished concrete floors, modern kitchen/bathroom and old fir floors). Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, all with queen sized beds, cozy down filled duvets, open concept kitchen and living room that stimulates your senses with its harmonious use of colors, textures, Art, and attention to detail. The owner is an artist/textile designer from Germany and her house is an expression of who she is. There is a bathroom with a claw foot bathtub upstairs and a second bathroom with a large shower stall downstairs.

Downstairs there is a large second living/TV/piano/reading room with heated flooring and lots of daytime light. There is another large room that leads into the courtyard that serves as the 4th bedroom with bunk beds and would make a great playroom for the kids/teenagers.

What else is there to say...the pictures will speak for themselves I think. This will feel like a home away from home and the location is perfect if you enjoy experiencing the cultural events, fine dining and city life of Victoria in combination with the ocean, kayaking, beaches etc. half a block away. Enjoy!

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              Why Victoria:
              When my daughter and her family moved to Victoria (from Toronto) in 2005, I wanted to be close to them and my little granddaughter. I fell in love with this unique house, previously owned by an artist also. Since I don't drive, the location was perfect. I now spend my time between Ontario (where my son lives)and Victoria and since recently, also some winter months in Arizona.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I enjoy being so close to the ocean and going for a morning walk. I often stop for coffee or lunch at the Ogden point cafe (on the ocean!) and enjoy watching the cruise ships dock at the pier. I can do all my shopping in James Bay village which is merely a 5 min walk away. I love walking to Beacon hill park (7 min walk) , the petting zoo, ponds and playgrounds (2) with my granddaughter and enjoy the beautiful peace and beauty of the West coast nature. The inner harbor with great restaurants, street performers , buzzing night life, parliament buildings, The Royal B.C museum and Imax theatre, and summer festivals is just a 10 min walk from my house. I appreciate beauty, harmony, simplicity and color and my house is an expression of my inner world. I enjoy the spaciousness of this house with many choices of rooms to sit, read, enjoy company, make art, play piano or watch a movie.
