I have listed a new property at 655 Island RD in VICTORIA.
One of South Oak Bay's most majestic properties. This architecturally designed 4000 ft home, built in 1929, oozes history and charm throughout. As you walk into the large formal foyer your eye will be drawn to its grand tiled fireplace, peaked door frames, leaded glass and stately staircase. In keeping with the era, the main floor boasts a generous living room (with FP), dining room (looking east over the expansive & mature property), oversized kitchen & den. The exquisite winding staircase leads you upstairs to the family bedrooms, most looking east over the gardens. The master has a 4 piece ensuite and the children's rooms share a 4 piece bathroom (1 br has its own private deck). Downstairs there is large family room (leading to the back yard), laundry facilities, a separate suite and plenty of storage. This wonderful home unbelievably plays understudy to amazing gardens and yard - perennials and privacy. After 50 years, this charmer needs refreshing and cant wait for its new owners.
