Get away from it all … this hidden gem is located on a no thru street backing onto Knockan Hill Park. This charming 5 bedrm, 3 bath farmhouse sits on over a 1/3 of an acre. You’ll love sitting on your front porch overlooking your garden featuring cherry, apple and kiwis while you take in the distant views to the Olympic Peninsula. The private sun-drenched back deck will also beckon you.

The home underwent an extensive renovation during which it was lifted to create a light filled 2 bedrm legal suite. The charming features of the 1935 farmhouse were maintained including original fir floors, fir baseboards, picture rails, and coved hallways, while also creating an enviable custom chefs’ kitchen with vaulted ceiling, new bathrooms, new windows, and also upgrading the infrastructure of the home. The garage is big enough for all your toys.

Shopping, Golf Course and the Galloping Goose Bike Trail are only minutes away, plus you are only 15 minutes to downtown Victoria.
