5 Bed Single Family Detached in Victoria
1254 Oxford St
MLS® NO: 915573
This is one of those beautiful homes that is the envy in this coveted neighbourhood. Emotionally appealing inside and out, you will not be disappointed by the quality of design and finishing in this fully renovated character home. The custom kitchen was designed by Vancouver firm Shelley Scales (shelleyscales.com) and built by local craftsmen; it is a beautiful and functional masterpiece that is not only in proportion to the other rooms, but offers a timeless aesthetic appeal, complimentary to the vintage of the house. The libation station will be the envy of your friends and a great way to make your own morning lattes; Aga five burner gas stove with pot filler; and loads of storage for the family foodie. The south facing living and dining rooms offer a sunny and bright space for entertaining and relaxing, and both have beautiful fireplace inserts. The main floor bedroom makes for a handy home office. Upstairs are three generous bedrooms, and one offers an enclosed sleeping porch for terrific teen space. The spacious family bathroom is beautifully appointed with a large tiled walk-in shower and separate claw foot soaker tub. On the lower level there is a family room and fifth bedroom, or an easy conversion to additional accommodation for your family member or nanny (kitchen and bath already there!). Beautifully landscaped, with lots of outdoor space to enjoy socializing with family and friends; front sitting area for keeping up with the neighbours, deck off the kitchen for barbeques and the lower patio for larger gatherings (or a great kid zone). The mechanics have been upgraded: 200 amp electrical, new insulation, gas furnace and one gas and one electric fireplace, and the fiberglass shingle roof is about 7 years old. The flat lot is just over 8,000 square feet and awaits your creative ideas for play, investment, or storage options (see next door property for some ideas). Walk to the awesome shops in the Cook Street village.
