Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Bruce & Barbara Scott are long time Victoria residents. Bruce is a real estate agent and Barbara is a professional artist. The suite is adorned with her original works on canvas.

Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
We are only the 2nd owners of this 50's house that we completely renovated and added to. The property is private and feels like an acreage, yet is only minutes to downtown Victoria. We have created lush beautiful gardens, and beautiful seaside sanctuary. We love the peace & quiet here. This is a magical place and has its own spirit about it. Everyone who comes here is captivated by it.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This is usable waterfront. At the bottom of the garden, there is a private dock to launch a boat or kayak or to float on an inflatable mattress. This property while so private and feels like you are in a different world is only minutes to downtown Victoria and all it has to offer. Many bike trails, golf courses, shopping & restaurants are very nearby
