Dream Turn of the Century 1903 character home on a private, sun-drenched half-acre lot, just a minute from Shawnigan Lake. This gorgeous house shows like a Restoration Hardware magazine ad, complete with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and countless updates. Exposed antique beams, a wood burning stove, clawfoot tub, original wood floors, wrap around front porch and an eyebrow roofline will give you the feeling of a time past. A new roof and gutters, perimeter drains, insulated basement, 200 amp electrical service, new plumbing, appliances, along with 3 newer bathrooms, including a master en-suite with heated tile floors, will give you security and comfort you expect today. The yard is fully deer fenced and there is a front entrance vehicle gate, to fully contain the established apple trees, raspberry patch, and sunny gardener's plot complete with chicken coup/run. Whether you are a realist or a dreamer, retiree or have a young family, you will want to see this property.
