Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Douglas works for local government in Victoria and loves mountaineering and long distance thru-walking. He runs on Willows beach every morning and cycles to work. You'll find him the gym after work or tending his garden. His interests are ancient Rome, the Vikings and the history channel. He is also a science buff so lets discuss dark matter and energy. Karen is an Educational Assistant with the local school board and assists children in the classroom with learning disabilities. She loves travel, theatre, music, movies, reading, cycling and walking.

Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
We moved from the UK to Canada in 2004 with our children. When we saw our beautiful tudor style house it reminded us of home. So we just had to buy it. It has been a great family home and now that the boys have left for University we really don't want to leave the area. We have spare room and that is why we converted part of the house for visitor accommodation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peace and quiet. We are near enough to downtown for evening enertainment and close enough to shopping malls when needed but we live in a wonderful community with great neighbours and beautiful walks straight from our door. Willows beach and Beach Drive are only 5 minutes walk away and the Marina Restaurant is one of our favourite places to have a cocktail and watch the boats in the marina bob around. If you like golf then Upland Golf course is only 10 minutes walk away and we have an excellent bus service to the university and downtown a few minutes away.
