Do you have children? Need space for a home office or an art studio? Like to have lots of company? Wish you had room for your elderly parents? Could use a mortgage helper? Long for a quiet, rural atmosphere but have easy access to urban life? Then this beautiful completely renovated home is waiting for you!

This three-bedroom-and-den townhouse at Pacific Gardens, nestled in five acres of woodland bounded by the Chase River, features 1517 square feet of living space on two floors and can easily be configured to provide separate work-living spaces for whatever your lifestyle requires.

The entire home was completely renovated last year by Classic Home Renovations and features engineered oak flooring on the main floor. This level includes a large contemporary kitchen with generous soft-close cupboards and drawers, stainless steel LG appliances, a deep double sink and faucet, and a generous sized island for casual dining.  The spacious dining room has a built-in buffet and unique blown-glass lighting.  The living-room has sliding doors leading to a sunny morning deck. The large master bedroom (currently used as an artist’s studio) has a roomy double closet.  The cozy den has large windows admitting filtered natural light. The bathroom features a deep soaker tub, triple function shower, new toilet, sink, vanity and a funky 1920’s tile décor.  All windows on this level include cordless 2” faux wood blinds.

The lower floor features laminate wood floors throughout and has two bedrooms, including a second large master bedroom with a substantial walk-in closet and double French doors leading onto a private patio and parking, so could easily be used for a home-based business.  This level also includes a full bath, and a utility room with a washer/dryer and HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilation) system. There is generous storage space throughout the unit, as well as a sizeable storage locker in the basement of the building.

Like all the homes at Pacific Gardens, the front door opens onto a spectacular glass-roofed atrium, and is next to the many community amenities in our Common House, including the kitchen and dining room for community gatherings, music room, children’s playroom, a large patio and playground, and substantial organic gardening space. Our community also has a fully-functioning woodworking workshop, well-equipped exercise room, fabric arts room, bike room, three guest suites and a craft room, so no matter what your interests or hobbies, there’s a place here for you.

We’re a family-friendly community with lots of space for kids to roam and play.  The building is designated non-smoking but we do have an outdoor space, dubbed the “Union Hall”, where members indulge in an occasional cigar and a beer. Pets are welcome. Dogs must be kept on a leash in common areas and cats must be indoors only as we do love our birds. We are a ten-minute walk from the new Quality Foods grocery store and a twenty-minute walk from University Mall with its full complement of grocery and drug stores, a liquor store, many service stores and, of course, a Starbucks. Vancouver Island University is easily walkable but the city bus is a half block away and goes directly to the university and downtown. Neighbourhood Elementary and High Schools are nearby, within walking and biking distance.

The price for this like-new home is $499,000. Strata fees are $525.21 a month.  The annual property taxes in 2018 were $2,109.69 with the basic home-owner grant. We look forward to meeting you and showing you this exquisite home in a friendly, welcoming, multi-generational cohousing community.  For more information please contact Judy Roberts at 250-616-7933 or roberts.judy@gmail.com .
