Fantastic Gordon Head Opportunity. Five bedroom 2250 sq ft home on 8100 ft lot at the end of a very quiet cul de sac. Very close to bus lines, Tuscany Village and Uvic! Upstairs is a well-loved 3 bedroom/ 1 bath home with living room, dining room and a kitchen with eating area. The kitchen leads to an expansive deck which runs along the south side of the house. Downstairs is a huge 2 bedroom suite with a large living/dining room and even some office space. It needs work, no doubt, but with modest investment it could give you great returns. East facing back yard has a few fruit trees, privacy to the east and north and lots of space for your landscaping ideas. Exterior metal blinds on main windows. Oak floors under carpets.
