I just finished uploading this Oak Bay House for sale, 1530 York Place, Victoria, BC

Victoria's Oak Bay Location - The perfect Executive home and then some. You've done well in your life and now it is time to live like it. Find this home at the top of a rise on an easy care lot where lawns are replaced by rock and shrubbery gardens which combine with decks and patios to offer numerous meditation rests and views galore. Offered for sale for the first time by the original owners. This home has no half measures anywhere in its design, construction, maintenance or decor. Traditional in taste and quality but contemporary in the state of the art details and fixtures and systems. Pamela Charlesworth, the Architect, who herself resided in Oak Bay, was especially sensitive to the unique requirements necessary to make a new house fit into the ambiance of the area. David Chapman, the Builder, is an expert at building on rock and dealing with unique lots. Together, in 1996 they were commissioned to build this custom home situated at the end of a private cul-de-sac. In 2008, under the supervision of Interior Consultant, Dianne Kettner, the owners did a substantial update. The list of details is extensive and impressive and much too long to be fully included here but to whet your appetite here are a few examples: A marble entrance and fireplace surrounds. Beech hardwood floors on the main level. Berber upstairs. Extensive mill work and built-in's throughout. Wired for surround sound in the living and family rooms. Wainscot panels throughout. Every bedroom has its own updated bathroom (Clivia sink, glass sink and Trough sink with Hansgrohe faucets). Three gas fireplaces, one being in the master bedroom that is operated by remote control and is double sided into the gorgeous ensuite that flows into the dressing room. Notice the Coffer ceiling, cherry wood cabinets and Absolute Black Granite counter tops (10 yr.+ sealant applied) in the kitchen. All appliances remain including the DCS professional 30", 4 burner gas range with convection oven and warming shelf. Take a stroll through Oak Bay Village or walk to the Marina. Play tennis at Windsor Park or watch the waves along the beach. This is one of Oak Bay's most sought after addresses and a very rare offering.
