About the Property
This Five Bedroom Home Is Steps Away From Downtown Victoria With Free Parking!
The house boasts 3000 sq ft of comfortable west coast living over three storeys and five bedrooms.
The main floor has the two bedrooms (queen beds) and a sunny open-concept living space with a kitchen, sun room, dining room and living room with electric fireplace and a huge skylight. This floor is ideal for visiting, relaxing, watching TV and cooking big meals. Our kitchen is stocked with everything one would need and the dining room table has many leaves to seat up to ten people.
The top floor is the master bedroom with a king size bed plus ensuite with tub. It has two skylights and a calm and peaceful feel to it. There is a collapsible playpen available for use. It is very private from the rest of the house.
The lower floor is a 1.5 bedroom self-contained suite. It has a full kitchen and bathroom (standing shower), TV and laundry. There is a queen size bed in the main room and a double bed in the small bedroom. There is also a double pullout sofa in the living room.This small bedroom has an access door to the back patio, so perfect for smokers or someone coming and going late at night. This lower suite has 6’4” ceilings with 6" beams (guests should be under 5'10" staying down here) and laminate flooring. It sleeps four plus pullout sofa.
There is a wonderful sun room that catches afternoon and evening sun. There are two rocking chairs plus two twin beds. This is the best room for sleeping during fair-weather months, but it isn't insulated so there isn't any heat. There are also some kids toys. If we approve you bringing your dog, this is where they'd be sleeping.
The backyard is private and is equipped with a Webber BBQ, a fire pit and a patio plus chairs for lounging. This is ideal for large gatherings and has been very well-reviewed.
We accept most pets but he/she must stay outside or in the sun room. The backyard is fenced. We have a huge school field beside us, great for walking the pooch (or the kids!). Please let us know about your pet (size, temperament, shedding) if you would like to bring them and know it's an additional non-refundable pet fee.
Wireless internet, laundry, four car driveway (five in a pinch), very clean, ideal location for those wanting to be close to all the amenities. Private backyard for sunny afternoons and relaxing. Bus stop across the street.
It is not only a great vacation spot, it can also be a comfortable temporary home for those on the road. Perfect for longer stays and entertaining.
Great space for some music, BBQ, privacy and central location.
We have a bike for your use (sometimes two bikes - please inquire).
Two bedrooms have separate entrances.
Very close to downtown Victoria.
Lots of board games (Scrabble, Twister, crib, etc)
Great family reunion home.
Huge kitchen (actually two kitchens) and well-equipped for big meals.
School playground right around the corner.
Beautiful neighborhood for walking/sightseeing.
Perfect for special events (stags, bachelorette parties).
We will consider pets, but please understand they must stay in the yard/sun room.

We are also right beside a middle school. This school has the largest field in all of Victoria - great for dog walking and playing with kids The playground has a chess set and a huge play station for children.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I manage two vacation rental properties while studying at university. My parents own the house and they live up island with my sister and her family. I am in my thirties and have lived in Taiwan for eight years, Thailand for one year and here in beautiful Victoria for over fifteen years. I love this city and love recommending great day trips and more.
Why the Owner Chose Fernwood (Fernwood, Victoria, BC, Canada):
We decided to buy this house because of its convenient downtown location and absolute charm of the house. Once you get here, you will know what I mean...
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house, and I know from personal experience, is ideal for family gatherings. The open-concept kitchen and living areas make it fun to cook meals while still enjoying everyone's company. The sun room makes for a great location to either read the morning paper in the rocking chair, have an afternoon nap on the day bed or let the kids play in a safe room. This main floor is great for visiting yet the bedroom have very heavy doors that give privacy and block the noise. The master bedroom upstairs is also very private and a great get-away for the parents! It has an en-suite bathroom and great skylights that accent the attic-style ceiling. Great natural light and a super comfy king-size bed. The additional lower suite adds another two beds, full bathroom and kitchen.
