Urban Living: Just steps from Cook Street Village, a first class rebuild by an established commercial builder gave this 1912 heritage home the perfect melding of old world character with modern finishes and mechanics. Completely rebuilt with new foundations, plumbing, wiring, insulation along with a New Home Warranty (2015).
The home boasts almost 10 ft ceilings on the main floor, hardwood floors and a gas fireplace. Superb kitchen and a bedroom/den with 3 piece bathroom. Upstairs 2 generous bedrooms with 9 ft ceilings and 2 new bathrooms. A one bedroom suite on the lower level has a separate entry and excellent finishes including 8 ft ceilings and a kitchen with quartz counters - the potential for income.
Small garden, mostly outdoor patio, requires very little maintenance. A superb alternative to condo living with no strata fees. Conveniently located in the Cook Street Village neighbourhood near Beacon Hill Park, the YMCA, shopping, restaurants and all that Victoria has to offer.
Fairfield is a pleasant, residential community with a mix of low-rise apartments and single family homes on well-maintained, tree-lined streets. It is bounded to the east by Oak Bay, to the north by the community of Rockland, to the west by Beacon Hill Park and to the south by the ocean shoreline of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Fairfield features the historic Ross Bay Cemetery, as well as many heritage buildings dating from the late Victorian and Edwardian periods.
Within Fairfield, Cook Street Village is a popular commercial hub characterized by sidewalk-flanking Horse Chestnut trees, low-height buildings and the absence of bisecting roads. The village is a popular shopping and social strip, with cafés, restaurants, small boutiques and grocery stores. Shops and services in the village include the locally-renowned Pic-a-Flic video store, Moka House, Bubby's Kitchen and the Beagle Pub.
