A/O in place. Conditions off May 10. Showings still welcome - vacant. Introducing 720 Selkirk, a spectacular property of just under 1/2 acre located on a coveted stretch of the Gorge waterway. The park-like yard leads to a waterside path and a 10 min boat ride down to the inner harbour. This 1-family, 1938 home is 3750 SF with 1431 SF of ground level, unfinished basement with 9' high ceiling and it oozes character with very solid bones, but it is in dire need of TLC. Although currently livable, she could use a full makeover including all systems, bathrooms and the kitchen. The upper floor would make a spectacular master and the walk out basement could be ideal for in-laws, students or additional income. The value of this package is in the rarity of this sized parcel in town (over 20,000 SF) on the water and the soundly constructed, beautiful home. The upside is huge but it will take someone with skills, patience and time to transform this gem into the show piece it deserves to be.

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME; THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME; THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME.....
....one of my favorite movie lines and so true!
I have enjoyed calling Victoria "home", for a very long time....Where else can you find fabulous restaurants, great entertainment, warm and friendly people, top quality schools, beautiful parks, cool architecture? I know......you might be thinking of several exciting world cities but I truly love this one and I'm proud to work daily for my clients, helping them buy and sell Victoria Real Estate.
I've been lucky: I've lived all over this great city. I currently enjoy my morning coffee in the Highlands. A peaceful rural setting with just enough wildlife to keep things exciting.
Most of my days are spent working with delightful clients, staging homes, chatting with lawyers, reading over home inspection reports, viewing homes, negotiating contracts, putting a SOLD sign on a lawn or passing keys over to ecstatic new home owners. I finish my day by coming home to a super supportive husband, and wonderful children.
"Oh, but anyway, Toto, we're home – home! And this is my room – and you're all here – and I'm not going to leave here ever, ever again, because I love you all! And... oh, Auntie Em, there's no place like home!"
