Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: My husband and myself live in Sidney and have for most of our lives. My husband is a builder of 47 years, well known and respected in the community. We have another rental property that we do vacation rentals with as well.
Why the Owner Chose Sidney: We purchased this property in January of 2014 and completely re-built the interior and the exterior. We currently rent the basement suite full time but we felt that the it would be a great spot to offer to travellers considering how close it is to all the ferries, airport and the town. Sidney and the surrounding areas have a lot to offer to travellers and we enjoy being able to help with this.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The property is quite nice in the early evenings. You can sit out on the large deck and you will hear the local doves cooing near the trees in the back yard. There are many birds around the area and we have a resident brown rabbit that will come and sit in the yard. It is a nice street with clean and tidy yards and we liked the overall look of it.
