Car: Not Necessary

As you leave the main road and approach our home, traffic sounds recede and you begin to notice the sounds of birds. Maplewood home is a quiet respite in a central Victoria location close to Uptown and Hillside shopping areas, Cedar Hill Recreation Centre that includes: a gym, tennis courts, art gallery, and an 18 Hole Municipal Golf Course. The course is a five minute walk from the suite and surrounded by a 3.6k walking/running trail. We are 5 to 10 minutes from many hiking and biking trails, and steps from local transit to the downtown attractions.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Robin, a local shipwright and sailor, Fran, counsellor and gardener and our lovely springer spaniel, Ella, have lived in this original Victoria neighbourhood for the past 10 years. We are music lovers and interested in pastel painting, hockey, and walking. We have traveled and lived abroad staying in vacation homes in Cuba and the British Virgin Islands.

Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
Maplewood home is located in a protected Garry Oak Forest on a no through street, that backs onto the beautiful municipal Cedar Hill Golf course and trail. We were attracted to the area because of the quiet, safe and natural environment, easy access to major highway routes, walking trails and downtown Victoria.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
When we return from work, and drive over the hill off the main road, the traffic sounds begin to disappear and we immediately relax from our busy day into the peaceful calm surroundings with the calls of many birds. Owls, Coopers Hawks, Red wing Black Birds and many more species of song birds inhabit this area. Many people use the trails to walk their dogs, pick blackberries in the summer, get to the golf course, sled in the winter months, and train for the annual Victoria Times Colonist 10 k run that occurs in April. Most of our neighbors are original owners in this area and we have an active Block Watch program. Along with the songs of birds, in the summer months, we are mostly out in the yard, walking the dogs, playing with the grandchildren, tending the lawns and shooing the deer out of the tulip beds.
