A Magical 10 Mile Point Property
Nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac in upscale 10 Mile Point, this private .93 acre property is simply magical!
Originally built in 1928, the house was completely renovated and upgraded in 2000 using the combined talents of architect Brian Morris and award-winning builder Mike Griffin.
Featured in Fine Homebuilding Magazine, the house was thoughtfully re-designed to create an elegant yet casual design with an abundance of natural light and generous, flexible spaces for family living and for entertaining in style!
Quality construction and exceptional finishing are evident throughout the home, successfully combining modern high-end amenities with some of the exquisite original features.
The main level is warm and inviting with gorgeous fir floors, solid fir doors, beautiful leaded glass windows, and custom woodwork and built-ins.
A gourmet kitchen is the heart of the home: airy and bright with high end appliances, huge skylight, large pantry, and spacious breakfast area. An expansive dining area opens off the kitchen, with double French doors leading out to a private balcony.
The formal living room overlooks the gardens with an impressive feature fireplace, and beautiful leaded glass windows. A reading area, private computer workspace, guest bathroom and office complete the main level of the home, with access out to a sunny patio and an expansive private terrace.
Upstairs, the generous master suite enjoys lovely views over the gardens, with sitting area, beautifully appointed 5-piece ensuite bath, and large walk-in closet.
Two additional bedrooms on this level are both bright and spacious with high vaulted ceilings, walk-in closets and open loft areas.
A 4-piece bath, an oversized laundry room and a reading/TV area complete the upper level of the home.
Steps down from the main level, a fantastic family entertaining area features custom built-ins, high ceilings, a gorgeous feature fireplace, and double sets of French doors that open out to a massive Pennsylvania Bluestone terrace, and the back gardens.
Flexible spaces on this level provide for a fantastic art or photography studio with wet bar and amazing built-in storage spaces for tools, artwork and supplies. Tons of additional storage is available in multiple closets and large storage rooms.
Privately sited away from the living areas, an exquisite guest bedroom opens out to a gorgeous private terrace with pergola and flowering vines. A full bath and additional laundry on this level give guests a feel of having their own private ‘wing’!
Outside, the fully fenced and gated property is absolutely spectacular!
Multiple terraces and sitting areas are enhanced by formal gardens and flowering plantings that provide year-round color. Native and exotic trees and plantings are featured throughout the property with additional vegetable garden area, raised garden beds and mature fruit trees that include plum, pear, apple and fig.
Located in the heart of 10 Mile Point, this sought-after neighborhood offers access to walking trails and the ocean, with dedicated parks and green spaces an integral part of the peaceful community.
Cadboro Bay Village is just minutes away, offering varied amenities that include an independent local grocery store, Starbucks, shops, restaurants, pub and cafés.
10 Mile Point offers access to Gyro Park and several of Victoria‘s best loved beaches, with options for kayaking, paddle boarding, boating and beachcombing right at your fingertips!
The University of Victoria is a short bike ride away, and top ranked schools are located nearby, both public and private.
This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime property!
