The unit is one of six units in a complex built in 2003. It retains a contemporary and urban feel, with a lot of natural light and hardwood. Transportation and lifestyle options are excellent making it a highly coveted location. It is very close to bus routes leading directly to downtown, Oak Bay Village (a charming and character-rich shopping area), Willows beach (stunning ocean and mountain views), the Oak Bay Marina and to the University of Victoria.

The home is very close and within walking distance to multiple specialty and high quality grocery outlets, drugstores, a walk-in medical clinic, Royal Jubilee Hospital, salons, banks, spas, a liquor store, pubs, restaurants, parks, fitness centres, etc. It is approximately a 35-minute walk to downtown and a 15-minute walk to beautiful Oak Bay Village shopping area and the waterfront and marina. The features of each floor include:

Top floor: 2 medium bedrooms, 1 with ensuite, second bathroom with shower stall, front-loading European washer and dryer, and berber carpet and Italian tiles throughout.
