This spacious and elegant McClure home is nestled on a completely private & park-like property on the border of Oak Bay and Fairfield; a superb location close to absolutely everything!
An oversized foyer with soaring high ceilings welcomes you into the home, with massive stained glass windows providing an abundance of natural light. Beautiful hardwood floors and woodwork are featured throughout the home, and complemented by custom trim and mouldings, French doors, built-ins and leaded glass windows. The formal living and dining rooms are dramatic and oversized….perfect for large family gatherings and parties. The warm and inviting kitchen boasts antique-finish granite countertops, lovely custom cabinetry, fabulous Aga stove, large pantry area with second fridge and sink, and a delightful built-in breakfast nook overlooking the gardens!
Adjacent to the kitchen, an incredible conservatory/family room is currently used as an artist’s studio, boasting high ceilings with clerestory windows, wall-to-wall windows and double French doors opening out to the sunny back gardens and patio. A den/office on the northwest side of the home, a 2-piece guest bath, and a lovely sunroom that opens out to the garden, complete the main level of the home.
Upstairs, the master suite includes a huge dressing room or study, access to a private porch, and a bright & airy ensuite bath with separate soaker tub and shower. Three additional bedrooms are also located on this level, each with access to a private bathroom, and one with its own private balcony….

The lower level of the home features a large, open laundry area, a dedicated workshop with lots of built-in storage, and convenient access to additional huge storage areas.
Outside, the beautiful grounds are spectacular, with charming duck pond, expansive back lawns and patio, gorgeous and colourful flower beds and gardens and an abundant variety of plants, bushes and trees: this is a truly peaceful and private oasis with a real ‘English Country’ feel, yet it is just 7 minutes from vibrant downtown Victoria!
