Perched high on the hill within a premier residential heritage district, the Parrot residence is one of the few homes in the Old City with both ocean and spectacular mountain views. Step out the front door to wonderful Pawson Park, offering preservation of the ocean view scape, public art and community garden. This 1916 restored Edwardian home thoughtfully maintains the historic integrity and character with many original elements such as the open front veranda, fir floors, French doors, high ceilings, large windows, and a magnificent staircase and banister provide a sense of richness not found in contemporary homes. The newer kitchen and gorgeous new spa-like bathroom both feature heated tile floors. The living room offers a new certified high efficiency wood insert. Three bedrooms are on the upper floor complete with a bathroom. The ground floor had a non-conforming secondary suite previously rented for $700/month. Within the last year it was converted to a home office and is easily converted back for a mortgage helper; or take advantage of the large quarter acre lot with alley access and build a carriage home. Every room in this home has a view including those overlooking Harewood and the mountains behind are best enjoyed from either the huge back deck or the hot tub from the private lush fully fenced backyard with lovely mature landscaping. This is the perfect home for someone who appreciates a by-gone era. The sea plane terminal, many schools including VIU are short walking distance away. All measurements are approximate.
