A 5-minute drive to the Commonwealth Place Rec. Centre for swimming, gym, and classes. Shopping is also a 5 minute drive. 18 hole, 9 hole, and mini-golf courses - 5 minutes away. Only 20 minutes to downtown. 10 Minutes to the Airport - 15-20 to the Ferries for crossings to Vancouver, the Islands, & U.S.A. You will see much wildlife close by - and many birds and butterflies on our property. World famous Butchart Gardens is 15 minutes away. Easy access to shopping, sight-seeing, downtown, and places to walk in Nature.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Peter & Jo-Ann Hopkins purchased this property, shortly after they were married - and have done substantial renovations since inception. It has been a Labor of Love! Peter was a Clearance Diver with the Navy for 20 years - and has done Bomb Disposal work throughout the World, and as close as Calgary - both in the River and on Military Land, during 1998 - 2005. He is also trained as a Millwright - what he works at now - with Victoria Shipyards - repairing and a Consultant on ferries and submarines. Jo-Ann started her career in Accounting, then moved to being the only Bonded and Licensed female Car Broker in Alberta, then 21 years as a successful Realtor - both in Calgary and here in Victoria. A little note - she used to Barrel Race too. Jo just happened on this house during her career!! The Main home was built in 1931 - so both home and property have much Heritage character. The Cottage - in the back yard - overlooks the huge Mulberry Tree - hence the name 'Mulberry Cottage'. We have completely renovated the Main home and added an Addition (for Jo-Ann's Reiki treatment studio), also added an Addition to the Cottage (which used to be a bird aviary at one point....!) new circular driveway and brick walkways, new outbuildings, - and Pete finally got his Shop! We love visiting with our guests - from around the World.... and hope when you come - you will experience R & R. Jo-Ann is also a Reiki Master - and offers treatments in her home studio.
Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
We are located in an exceptional area - close to shopping and grocery stores, Lakes, and the Ocean. Also the ferries and the Airport. We have been told by several guests - the property is 'magical'. It has that English Country Cottage feel. A very safe and quiet area, with much flora and fauna.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We have a 1/2 acre secluded property - but close to all amenties. The best of both worlds! We love the peace of the gardens, the country road out front - that people walk constantly. And the proximity to the lake and Ocean - is so close - you can walk to either. The trees on the property are very stately and beautiful. They attract many birds (and squirrels!). If you like Nature - you will love this.
