Property Description

This turn of the century character home stands proud at 110 years old and enjoys wide open water views from it's high perch above the portage inlet. This grand old 'HERITAGE HOME' is just waiting to be restored. With wood floors (hidden under the carpet), stained glass, french doors, cove ceilings, wood panelling and wainscoting- this arts and crafts home offers excellent bones. RS-8 ZONING allows for a legal suite, but due to the "Heritage Designation" this property has the potential for increased density. With the attic offering great ceiling height there is 4 floors to potentially work with- so possibilities are numerous. Talk with Saanich Municipality for more details. Lots of room for parking, plus a detached double garage. Backyard connects with the galloping goose trail. Priced over $100K below assessed value, discounted for current condition. Pictures taken at an earlier date when home was less cluttered.
