Situated in one of the best neighbourhoods on Vancouver Island, this 1.5 acre estate is just steps to the waterfront. Entering through the iron gate, you'll discover an appealing 1930's English-style " cottage, " which was extensively upgraded and enlarged in a renovation designed and overseen by the late Victoria architect Pamela Charlesworth. With 3311 square feet of finished living area, and with 3 bedrooms on the main level, this home is ideal for a family. The living and dining rooms each have a fireplace. There is also a family room on this level which opens onto a large deck. The lower level contains a fourth bedroom, home office space, storage space, and a large recreation room, plus a workshop. The fully-fenced property has been nurtured by long-term owners who are serious gardeners. The showpiece garden features countless varieties of exotic plants from around the world. This is one of the most private and attractive properties currently offered for sale in Greater Victoria.
