I have sold a property at 3528 Plymouth RD in VICTORIA.
Family home on 18,000 ft. lot in North Oak Bay. Over 3100 square feet of living space - five bedrooms and three baths split over four levels. Walk to UVic. Perched up high with a lush private feeling, fresh woodsy outlooks. It's Country in the City. Backs onto to Mt. Tolmie with forested trails. A lovely feeling of nature here. 4 level split, circa 1960 has many solid features intact; original oak flooring. Big kitchen w/south and west windows. 2 fireplaces, one is wood burning. Huge Family Room. A unique solarium. Space galore. This is a very desirable setting for a home. It stirs the imagination for upgrading to 'your style'. Present owners since 1984. Recent mechanical improvements from roof to furnace. Nice opportunity. (Ocean glimpses)

I have sold a property at 2173 Fair ST in VICTORIA.
This is the quintessential Oak Bay Character Home located in a neighbourhood that is central to everything. Its close to Willows Beach, shopping, schools and Parks;what more could you ask for! This 1911 - 1300 sq ft home has been wonderfully updated yet retains the charm from decades past. On the main floor you will find a modern kitchen, a dining room, a living room (complete with gas fireplace) and a sun room (which is currently being used as a 3rd bedroom)looking over a beautiful back yard. Walk upstairs and enjoy the 2 bedrooms (the Master has a Juliet balcony waiting for some flower boxes). As well there is ample room for a study area and some significant storage. The basement is large with a 6'3" clearance in most places
