This spectacular country-style estate on a gorgeous 5 acre property is a true oasis: yet less than 15 minutes from downtown Victoria!
Nestled in an area of upscale estate properties and custom homes, the property is completely private, fully fenced and gated, and accessed from a quiet cul-de-sac just across from Elk Lake.
The spacious 5-6 bedroom home of nearly 6000sqft features a sunny, open and flexible design with oversized living, dining, family, and recreation areas; perfect for family living and for entertaining! Enjoy gorgeous views across Elk Lake to the snow-capped Olympic Mountains and non-stop sunshine….
The current owners have spent over $250,000 on recent upgrades and renovations and both the house and property have been impeccably maintained inside and out….
The gourmet kitchen boasts top quality appliances, granite countertops, central island/eating bar, and a large pantry; and an oversized breakfast area that is perfect for family dining! The adjacent family room is the heart of the home with high, vaulted ceilings, cozy wood stove and beautiful views. French doors open out to the massive 1345 sqft deck; the perfect place for summer dining, BBQs and entertaining on a grand scale!
The oversized formal living room also features high, vaulted ceilings, feature fireplace, and an adjacent, formal dining area that shares the stunning views!
The main floor master suite is an elegant and relaxing space with lovely 5-piece ensuite bath and ‘his and hers’ walk-in closets…..
Two additional bedrooms, two 4-piece bathrooms, a bright den/office, spacious laundry room, and 2-piece guest bath complete the main level of the home.
On the lower level of the house, a lovely new 1 bedroom suite is bright and inviting, fully self-contained, and accessible from inside or by a private outside entry; the perfect option for guests, in-laws, or your University-aged child!
An additional bedroom is also located on this level, plus a 3-piece bath and oversized recreation room or home office…. The massive covered patio area includes multiple sitting areas and hot tub too!
Tons of storage is available, and garage parking is offered for 5 vehicles! Additional driveway parking allows for numerous cars and lots of extra parking when you are entertaining…..
A totally private, south-facing swimming pool is perfect for family fun, with non-stop sunshine and an expansive deck to enjoy.
Outside, the gorgeous 5 acre property includes expansive lawns and meadows, beautifully landscaped feature gardens retained by large granite boulders, water features and more…..with a spring-fed pond that can be used for irrigation!
Enjoy significant property tax savings with the option of ‘farm status’, which the current owners achieve by having a grove of fig trees; these trees have blossomed in the sunny and sheltered location and are virtually maintenance-free!
Just steps from Elk Lake, parks and trails, and close to shopping and all amenities, the location is exceptional! Great schools, the University of Victoria, and downtown Victoria are all within 20 minutes from your door…..and the Victoria International Airport can also be reached in approximately 15 minutes!
This is truly a unique and very special opportunity, combining the peaceful, private, and relaxing lifestyle of country-living, with all the options of vibrant Victoria at your fingertips: the best of both worlds!
