              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: Welcome to my slice of paradise, I moved to Sidney by the sea on Vancouver Island just over 4 years ago after having a wonderful vacation here. I really enjoy the friendly seaside community and slower pace of life and the way it reminds me of my childhood growing up in England on seaside excursions. Everyday living here feels like a vacation, with the beach only steps away and always something fun to do. I love to explore this beautiful island and all the secret gems it has to offer.

              Why the Owner Chose Sidney:
              I chose this property for its location and its cottage style look. We are steps away from the main Beacon avenue in Sidney which offers everything and anything from fine dining, summer markets, grocery stores, endless book stores, whale tours, live theatre, movies and lots of little boutiques.Beautiful parks and beaches and marinas and a pier where you can try your hand at crab fishing.

              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
              The cottage is built from ICF blocks which makes the property toasty warm in the winter months and cool in the summer. It is south facing with a covered patio, fully upgraded throughout, hardwood floors and wheel chair accessible. Close to all amenities and use of private garage as well as off road parking. As well as a brand new queen bed in master bedroom there is also a queen size murphy bed in dining area.
