Owner info

Year Purchased: 1981

About the owner: I was born in Burnaby, B.C., of Icelandic and Scottish descent. Settled in rural North Saanich to raise a family, grew a pressed flower business and ran our garden centre in downtown Sidney. I continue to design our product line selling to fine gift galleries, garden centres, museums, art galleries and gift shops in North America.

Why the Owner Chose North Saanich, BC, Canada:
Our family has grown and gardern centre sold wishing to continue the laughter, love and life that make this home such a wonderful place to be. Victoria Garden Estate became a vacation house in 2004, our spring and summer months booked solid with family reunions and vacation rentals.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Victoria Garden Estate was built around a passion for antiques and the love of gardening. Built in 1981 the architectural design gives this stately home an air of antiquity. With features such as the grand staircase replica of the one found in the Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, B.C The house was designed to facilitate 2 beautiful floor to ceiling antique fireplaces which are the reason for the high ceilings and large rooms.
