4 Bed Single Family Detached in Saanich West


4055 Zinnia Rd


This grand, turn of the century home (1916) retains the charm of a bygone era with its high ceilings and spacious well-appointed rooms. The front of the house faces west, privacy is ensured with it's high hedge and decorative cast iron gate way. The covered porch with it's pretty flowerpots is a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or tea. The living room with it's natural wood wainscoting invites you to socialize with family and friends, in the winter you'll be kept cozy by the heat of airtight wood burning stove (WETT-Certified) and pocket doors. The kitchen was recently upgraded with new cupboards and drawer fronts, granite counter tops and range hood. You'll love the pantry! There is a cushioned window box in the kitchen to sit and read or to keep the cook company. If you wish to entertain, there is a formal dining room which can double as a very pleasant bedroom. Two east-facing covered decks run the length of the house providing pastoral views of the garden below and the green space of Panama Flats beyond which floods in the winter giving the illusion of a lake. The grounds are fully fenced. The wide main floor staircase leads you upstairs to two bedrooms under the eves and a blue and white tiled bathroom complete with a clawfoot tub. On the lower level are two more bright bedrooms, a 3-piece bathroom and laundry. There is definitely potential to develop a secondary suite. The lower veranda leads to the garden with established fruit trees. This house, one of the original of the area, is in a semi-rural setting. Located on the bus route to Camosun College, it is minutes from Victoria General Hospital. Elementary and high schools are within walking distance. This is an ideal family home!
