Only blocks from the ocean, this 1 bedroom, one bathroom (easily converted back to 2 bed) home needs some love and attention and is nestled on one of Oak Bay's most tranquil streets. Excellent walking and plentiful parks are all at your door! This 1929 home has retained its original character: coved doorway, multi-paned windows, high molded baseboards, cove trim, and fir and oak inlaid floors. In the living room (where the gas fireplace is the focal point), there is a built in bookcase on one side and delightful vintage light sconces above the mantle. The natural ambient light that this property receives is part of it's allure. There are some mature trees in the neighboring yards which help to dapple the light and provide privacy. The large south facing back deck provides full exposure, if that is what you desire. The undeveloped downstairs allows for another bedroom and lots of opportunity for hobbies. The garage is spacious Recent upgrades: Roof & Hot Water on demand system.
