The property enjoys due south exposure and some ocean and mountain views across to Vancouver Island. 3-storey 2304sqft residence overlooking the beautifully landscaped and manicured grounds below with extensive lawns, two beautiful ponds, a large variety of fruit trees/bushes and beautiful ornamental trees and shrubs, as well as some nice rock work.

Flooring is mixed throughout the home, including hardwood in the living areas, lino in the kitchens and carpeting in the bedrooms as well as on the stairs. The exterior of the home is red cedar shake siding and the asphalt shingle roof was replaced in 2012.
