                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: I am a retired, well travelled nurse, my husband, born in Germany still runs his Music studio and store. We are long term residents of Victoria, (my mother was born one block from our house). We have been married 40 years. We enjoy the wonderful amenities Victoria has to offer on a regular basis. We truly love animals and welcome your pets. We have a one legged Seagull we have named Heathcliff which we nursed back to health after finding him near death on the beach down the road. He is has adopted us and spends a lot fo time perched on our roof or sitting on the rock to sun himself.

                      Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
                      We loved the ambience of this historical neighborhood, as well the nearness to the city, transportation and walks. We found letters and postcards from 1907 when we renovated. A sense of history prevails in the house. My mother was born two blocks away in 1912.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The wonderfully warm weather allows one to use the wrap around deck and veranda for six months a year. The sense of history prevails in the house. Great location; close to town and waterfront, tourist attractions, recreation center, shopping, medical clinic.
