Victoria house description

The perfect location for a stay in Victoria; quiet yet in the heart of it all. Located in historical James Bay, within 2 blocks of the Royal BC Museum, the Inner Harbour, Parliament Buildings, and Pacific Undersea Gardens. Chinatown and the Maritime Museum of British Columbia are a short 10 minute walk. Enjoy Beacon Hill Park just one block away or the ocean front of Dallas Rd a quick 6 minute walk. Hop on a boat to see the whales or grab a kayak and explore on your own; its all within a short walk. An easy find from the Inner Harbour Ferries or Float Planes; easy location for airport shuttle drops/pickups.

This lovely 2009 built 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom strata duplex is located in the heart of the James Bay neighborhood. The interior of this spacious home is finished with the highest quality granite countertops, hardwood floors, stone tiles, bright and beautiful with all the comforts to make your Victoria stay most relaxing.

Formal living on the main with a contemporary open floor concept; watch the horse drawn carriages go by from the living room windows.

The kitchen is modern and efficient and includes granite counter tops, gas stove with convection oven, and KitchenAid appliances.

Before retreating to your main floor master bedroom, enjoy the 5 foot double head rain show in the spa inspired ensuite which hosts heated tile floor, elegant stone tile surround, and a marble countertop.

An open stairwell with glass banister takes you to your lower level where you will find another private bedroom, three piece bathroom, and laundry.

Enjoy the gardens and read a book in the sunshine; this area is great to be outdoors.

          Year Purchased: 2009

          About the owner: Love the outdoors and most activities that go along with that. Have enjoyed building this home and take pride in the work completed to make it comfortable and elegant.

          Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
          Just the perfect location; nicely furnished comfortable and new. It doesn't get any better if you wish to explore Victoria by foot or bike. Exceptionally clean; lovely yard. This is my home which I welcome others enjoying as much as I do; its just a really special area of Victoria.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Walking distance to so many of the wonderful locations in Victoria. Quiet charming neighborhood yet so close to absolutely everything. Buses are just a few blocks away and can take you anywhere on the island public transit goes. Be in the heart of it all and yet away at the same time.
