This classic Arts & Crafts family home is situated on a beautifully landscaped ocean view lot just steps from the new Oak Bay Beach Hotel.

The main floor features gracious living and entertaining spaces including a gourmet Urbana kitchen with wood and glass cabinets, stainless appliances, Brazilian cherry wood floors and dining banquette. A grand living room features a wood burning fireplace, inlaid hardwood floors and period details. It adjoins a large formal dining room through French doors – the perfect place for entertaining guests or celebrating family occasions. The cosy family room with a gas fireplace and ocean views will make you want to relax and stay for hours. Also on this floor is a private bedroom and fully updated bathroom.

Upstairs offers that much sought after, super functional floor plan of 3 bedrooms together with a beautifully updated bathroom featuring a double vanity and claw foot tub. The front bedroom offers fabulous ocean & mountain views and is being used by the current owners for aperitifs. The spacious master bedroom will easily accommodate all your furniture.

Also on this floor is completely separate accommodation to help with the growing and ever changing needs of a family. This space was beautifully designed and finished – nice enough to accommodate the most important family member.

This home has been thoughtfully updated while honouring its Arts & Crafts pedigree. Character details throughout unify the home, including leaded glass, inlaid oak floors, deep baseboards, wood mouldings, reproduction electrical switches and built-in cabinets. Improvements include designer paint colours inside and out, updated electrical work and fixtures, gourmet kitchen, new hot water tank, all newer appliances and bathrooms.

Outside there is an inspired, low maintenance landscape that takes it cues from contemporary West Coast plantings fused with more classic English gardens including a peaceful, West facing backyard oasis with water feature. There is also a great detached garage and back lane access & parking.

You can easily walk from this beautiful home to the new Hotel, Victoria Golf Club, nearby parks, Oak Bay Marina and the Waterfront.
