I have listed a new property at 206 2717 Peatt RD in VICTORIA.
This 2BR/2BA 855 ft condo is in pristine condition and ready for you to move in. As you look through the home you will realize no expense was spared - quality workmanship and finishings are throughout. The honey oak floor complements perfectly the dark wood cabinetry and granite counters. The kitchen boasts 4 Stainless appliances with the deluxe washer and dryer only steps away. Other beautifully nuanced design touches include vessel sinks in the bathroom (His and Hers in the Master ensuite!), Illusion window coverings, tiled floor and a lovely Dimplex electric fireplace. But stop right there - I have saved the best for last - a huge terrace await you and your friends for those summer BBQs. The location is near perfect with a 90 WalkScore!

I have listed a new property at 110 1975 Lee AVE in VICTORIA.
This is a spiffy one bedroom/one bathroom condo. It has recently been renovated and it still sparkles. The building is situated in a near perfect location - proximity to shopping (SaveOn Foods), schools, transit, the hospital and is less than 2 km to Willows Beach! The condo is on the NW corner of the main floor with incredibly easy and level access from the back door (which is as close as can be to the currently assigned parking spot). Even though it's a ground floor unit, it's high off the ground and has privacy screening. The updating includes flooring, a tastefully remodeled kitchen (with DW) with back splash, paint and window covering. It gets better - the $180 monthly fee includes heat and hot water! Pets welcome. Age 18+. Don't Delay
