Description

This is a renovated 1912 Character house on the Oak Bay border. Whether you call it Arts and Crafts, Craftsman or Character this style of architecture is virtually a signature piece for anywhere along the West Coast but especially here in Victoria. Combine that with the convenience of being within walking distance of anything you need including the Royal Jubilee Hospital and you have yourself a great home. Updates include roof, gutters, windows, paint, gas, refinished floors, restored fireplace and hearth with antique Mahogany mantle, fixtures and appliances included. Large attic space could also be useful by adding some windows and maybe dormers (confirm with Victoria Municipality). Outside, a great deck perfect for entertaining over looks the back garden.
