Bird lovers Home Nestled in the Garry Oaks for Sale
near Mount Douglas Park, Victoria, BC
A bird lovers paradise nestled in the garry oaks near the foot of Mt Douglas Park. Great hiking, galloping goose, biking and walking trail through greater Victoria, only a short walk away. Near UVIC and a 10 min drive to downtown Victoria.
This home was owned by one of the founders of the Sierra Club in BC. Birds are a priority here. A large wildlife tree is prominent in the backyard. Wild roses and other native shrubs make good cover for nesting towhees. The owner has seen pileated woodpeckers land on her pine cone feeders and feed their baby on the back deck. No chemicals have been used in the yard for at least 24 years. The sunny front yard could hold a number of fruit trees or veggie beds.
We are looking for someone to love the wildlife here and continue to steward this property by keeping the birds in mind. This is a gem hidden in the suburbs, we would love for this property to remain green but we are advertising it on realtor.ca as well, so if interested act fast please! We are looking for someone who will enjoy the coastal douglas firs, garry oaks and native shrubs instead of clearing the property.
The house is a split level rancher (the home could be made to look very retro) situated at the very end of a cul du sac so the backyard has a beautiful greenspace. It is a 5 bedroom 3 bath family home with 3 bedrooms on the top floor, master with ensuite, plus room for nanny or extended family on the lower level. This level has access to the back deck and has suite potential. Loads of storage space including a finished half basement, perfect for pantry or wine cellar. Bright kitchen with brand new Bosch dishwasher. Large living area with high ceilings and forest views. Recent updates: roof, hot water tank, back deck and main water line.
Desirable neighborhood close to great schools, shopping, movie theatre, recreation center, golf course and library. Beach access not far away. Good property for kids to explore. A private nature oasis in the city of Victoria.
