Character Fireplace None Baseboard Heaters, Forced Air Acreage


Country cottage on private haven near Elk Lake and Bear Hill Park. This unique five-acre parcel, once the historic V & S rail line, runs about 1 km and is 100 ft wide. About one acre is suitable for year-round use e.g., paddocks, and the remainder a wetland during the rainy season. The peat drains quickly allowing for planting, e.g., blueberries and currents, pasture and woods for walking and riding. Regardless of season, the valley views are remarkable and teeming with wildlife and migrating birds. Used in the past for horses, the barn can be refurbished (water and electricity in place) or demolished (permit at Saanich). The bright west-facing cottage includes 4bd/2.5 bths, oak floors, new Miele w/d, Bosch dw, metal roof and cozy wood stove. There is 200-amp service, a modern type II 10/10 septic treatment plant, one domestic drilled well and one irrigation well for livestock and gardens. JD 2210 tractor included. Located only 20 min to downtown Victoria and 20 min to the airport. (id:24231)
