Property description

This charming heritage home, on one third acre, is nestled among oak and arbutus trees at the end of a no-through road.

Centrally located in a quiet neighborhood on the treed slope of Mt. Tolmie, this home is situated close to the park-like setting of the University of Victoria, and within walking distance or a short drive to many trails, parks, beaches, cafes and bakeries. The Inner Harbour and the amenities of the city are 10 minutes away by car. Wilderness areas, nature parks, biking and hiking trails, and beaches are easily accessible.

Enjoy relaxing in the garden, on the covered front porch, or in the sun room adjacent to the master bedroom.
Take your book to a window seat, or sit beside a wood burning fireplace in the living room or den.
Cook in a lovely, modern kitchen surrounded by windows inviting the garden inside. Enjoy the access to the back yard and herb garden. Take your breakfast upstairs to the tiny secluded 'morning' porch.
Enjoy your meals beside the fireplace in the comfortable country dining room.
Surround yourself with original, local art and a large selection of books.
Make use of the private office space.
Find complete privacy from the world in the art studio/loft located in the out-building.

Victoria is a charming small city combining heritage character with a modern vibe: great restaurants, boutique shopping, farmer's markets, artisan bakeries and breweries, art galleries, live theatre and music and much more.

This home has a country sensibility. The neighbours value quietness and privacy. If, as well as enjoying the amenities of the city, your stay includes the desire to spend time in a tranquil west coast setting then this is the home is for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1977

About the owner: We are a couple who enjoy all that Victoria has to offer. We also spend time in the Kootenays with our children and on a nearby Gulf island. When we first moved to Victoria we wanted a home in the country, with room for animals and children. We fell in love with this property because it offered the feel of a rural area within the city with the charm of a heritage country style home. When we are away we enjoy sharing our home with visitors who wish to have a home away from home while they are visiting Victoria.
