Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I manage two vacation rental properties while studying at university. My parents own the house and they live up island with my sister and her family. I am in my thirties and have lived in Taiwan for eight years, Thailand for one year and here in beautiful Victoria for over fifteen years. I love this city and love recommending great day trips and more.
Why the Owner Chose Victoria: We decided to buy this house because of its convenient downtown location and absolute charm of the house. Once you get here, you will know what I mean...
The Unique Benefits at this House: This house, and I know from personal experience, is ideal for family gatherings. The open-concept kitchen and living areas make it fun to cook meals while still enjoying everyone's company. The sun room makes for a great location to either read the morning paper in the rocking chair, have an afternoon nap on the day bed or let the kids play in a safe room. This main floor is great for visiting yet the bedroom have very heavy doors that give privacy and block the noise.
The master bedroom upstairs is also very private and a great get-away for the parents! It has an en-suite bathroom and great skylights that accent the attic-style ceiling. Great natural light and a super comfy king-size bed.
The additional lower suite adds another two beds, full bathroom and kitchen.
