I have sold a property at 1791 Feltham RD in VICTORIA.
This Home will appeal to investors and families alike. Almost 2800 ft of finished space on .26 of an acre. Upstairs you will find a wonderful 3BR/1BA home complete with a large living room, dining area and a great kitchen. The downstairs suites provide $1770 of monthly income and the great tenants would love to stay! The massive south facing backyard is bathed in sun all day long and the owners have just finished the landscaping. Fresh paint upstairs and outside have given this wonderful home great street appeal. In the last few years this house has had a new roof, new carpet up, attic insulation, windows and driveway. Talk to Saanich about rezoning for Duplex. Great family home and a great investment property.
