Tucked comfortably in the sought-after neighbourhood of Arbutus, this home sits on over 2-acres of undisturbed, tree-lined property on private, high-bank waterfront. The Seller has done extensive preliminary work for a 3 LOT SUBDIVISION (1-Acre waterfront lot, and 2 half-acre lots...BUYER TO VERIFY). The main, 1940’s home exudes comfort with its farmhouse style and well-maintained character. Marvellous ocean and mountain views. Separate from the main house, the property also provides 4 outbuilding structures which include 2-bdrm plus den cottage, a studio, greenhouse, & large barn w/storage. Beach access is provided by Permitted staircase off the private, ocean-view deck overlooking Haro Straight & San Juan Island – ideal for your morning coffee or afternoon pick-me-up. Enjoy being transported back in time by the rural simplicity of the estate while down the road from UVIC and minutes from the bustling downtown core. With a multitude of options here, this property will not last.
