Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I am a Mortgage Broker in Victoria and own two Student rental houses and (now) one vacation rental. My hobbies include travel planning for friends who come to the island, and event planning for charity fundraisers. I love downhill skiing and travelling abroad in the winter and boating and hiking in the summer. I am a Proud Victorian and am excited to show off my beautiful city/island.

Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
It's a hidden gem - paradise, with a ton of convenience! Langford is a growing community VERY close to Victoria and lakefront property doesn't come up very often. I love that Glen Lake is an electric motor lake, as it adds to the peace and tranquility. It is only 5km to Bear Mountain Golf and Spa as well as 3 other Golf courses. Family activites are abundant now that City Centre Park has opened, right around the corner (2 min walk)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
My favorite thing to do is to sit on the patio and listen to the birds sing, watch the rabbits and deer jump across the field, the Canada Geese fly over and land in the lake at dawn and fly away at dusk. Blackbirds, bluebirds, chikadees, quail and robins are everywhere. Squirrels will come and stare at me through the patio door until they recieve thier daily dose of peanuts. This place makes me feel like Snow White!
