I have listed a new property at 1745 Fairfield RD in VICTORIA.
What a location! It's just a short walk to Margaret Jenkins, Hollywood Park, and Thrifty Foods so put your car on Craigslist and buy some bikes. This wonderful old home needs some work, no doubt, but it has a four year old roof, oil tank and furnace so your work is half done. The fir floors abound so all you need is some sandpaper and elbow grease. This home has a GREAT layout and is perfect for a growing family with 3 small bedrooms up and the master on the main (the large main-floor laundry could easily be converted to another bedroom). The big back yard which faces southeast will be perfect for summertime BBQs and has a detached garage. Dont forget - this home has a full 6'4" undeveloped basement. OPEN HOUSE SAT 1-3pm. Bring your Offers.

Located in a great downtown location in the popular Savoy - walking distance to everything! This bright and sunny one bedroom + den condo has been beautifully (and incredibly tastefully) updated and is a roomy 885 ft. The renovation list is seemingly endless: the kitchen has been updated with stainless appliances, new fixtures and even a water filter; the bathroom has had a complete make over - ceramic tile floors, new tub, toilet and sink; Hunter Douglas Blinds off the TWO balconies, all new closet doors, room doors, trim and the piece de resistance - Ybyraro floors throughout (say that three times!).The building offers secure underground parking, lounge, workshop, common laundry, and separate storage. This is a real jewel - don't delay!
