Stunning Uplands Waterfront with all the Extras!
Stunning Uplands waterfront property offering spectacular views and luxurious living, just steps from the Royal Victoria Yacht Club and minutes from all amenities!
Completely re-imagined and re-built from the ground up in 2014 by an award-winning Victoria custom home builder, the house incorporates top-quality materials, workmanship and finishing throughout….
A 2 storey entrance foyer leads through to the expansive living and dining areas, where views are immediately showcased through floor-to-ceiling windows. Imported wood-grain tile flooring is featured on the main level, with custom woodwork, built-ins and French doors all in a neutral palette.
The beautifully designed kitchen area includes professional grade appliances, quartz countertops and top-quality cabinetry, a built-in breakfast nook overlooking the ocean, a bar area with recessed TV, beverage centre and a rounded copper sink designed for chilling champagne on ice!
The casual family room off the kitchen area includes wall-mounted TV, cozy gas fireplace and built-in display areas. Accordion doors off the breakfast nook open out to a tiled BBQ deck that overlooks Cadboro Bay…with automatic awnings, sitting area and outdoor fireplace.
Two beautifully appointed bedrooms are located on the main level, offering a second option for the Primary Bedroom, as well as a guest bedroom with ensuite bath and built-in TV.
A laundry/utility room on this level also offers a coffee area and beverage fridge, ideal for guests!
Upstairs, the primary bedroom boasts incredible panoramic views, with a beautifully appointed 6-piece ensuite bath, huge closet/dressing room and private office. A recessed movie screen and projector are also featured, as well as an integrated TV/mirror in the ensuite, and access to an expansive deck with ‘fire bowl’.
Two additional bedrooms with ensuite baths are also located on the upper level, and are nicely separated from the primary bedroom. A second deluxe laundry/utility room offers beverage fridge, and an open sitting or yoga area overlooks the ocean….
Downstairs, the walk-out lower level was designed for entertaining and fun! The full-sized swimming pool features custom light settings and is enhanced by a raised and built-in gas fireplace, and a large wall-mounted TV for watching the game! The deluxe kitchen offers full-sized fridge, gas range, dishwasher drawers and beverage fridge, with lots of room for food prep and storage. An expandable dining area can accommodate large groups with ease, and the massive wall-to-wall accordion doors open up to create a true indoor-outdoor living experience: the best of an outdoor pool without the headaches….with an oversized hot tub, and expansive outdoor terrace with pizza oven too!
An enclosed wine room with full-sized wine fridge and wet bar is located just off the pool area, and a large lounge/TV room and billiard area are open to the main bar which is fully equipped with 2 fridges, dishwasher drawer, custom cabinetry, glassware storage and lots of bar seating. Accordion doors in this area open fully to connect with the outdoor terrace….
An exercise room or office with ensuite bath, a 2-piece guest bath in the games area, a steam shower and dry sauna room complete the lower level of the home!
Outside, the fully fenced and professionally landscaped property was designed to be low-maintenance and attractive, with full irrigation system, mature gardens and year-round colour.
