Brenda Russell is proud to present a new listing this House for sale, 2361 Zela Street, South Oak Bay, Victoria, BC

On a quiet, South Oak Bay street, lined with magnificent London plane trees, sits a 1940 Cape Cod house with wonderful street appeal. Short stroll to beaches, Oak Bay Marina, the Village. Watch amazing sunrises or sunsets from nearby Anderson Hill Park, while being serenaded by the cries of bald eagles. The boxwood-framed front walk invites you into this four bedroom, two bath home, which boasts oak floors, coved ceilings, centre hall plan, south-facing deck, a fully-fenced, private yard, grape arbour, and detached garage. The main floor includes a granite and stainless steel kitchen with craftsman-built cupboards, living and dining rooms, and full bath, in addition to a bonus room--library/office. From the windows in each of the three charming upstairs bedrooms, you will look out into the towering trees and shrubbery, and at night hear owls calling each other. Also on the top floor are a second full bath and a walk-in closet. In the fully finished lower level you will find a fourth bedroom, separate mudroom, entrance, and a large open space for home theatre, hobbies, gym... Among the upgrades are a high-efficiency gas furnace, LEDs throughout the top two floors, R50 attic insulation, wired ethernet, Fibre Optic high-speed internet service and new sewer line in 2012. There are not many capital cities in the world where you can be just 10 minutes from the legislature and downtown, while living in an area so quiet that the dominant sounds are the ocean, the wind in the trees and the calls of birds.
