Furnished Home for Rent in Victoria BC: available July 1, 2024 to Dec 31, 2024 Beautifully updated Tudor-style home in the highly sought-after Victoria neighbourhood of tree-lined Oak Bay, literally steps from the beach! The house is 2050 sq ft with refinished hardwood floors throughout, updated kitchen and bathrooms, seismic reinforcements, triple-pane windows, and gorgeous character accents from the original construction in 1940. Decorated with beautiful art, quality furniture, and professional-quality appliances and finishes. Open concept main floor features bright, inviting living room flowing into dining space and kitchen with breakfast bar. Main floor also includes sitting room, office / media room (or could be another bedroom), foyer and 4-piece bathroom with in-floor heating. Cozy gas fireplace (new in 2014), windows galore (all replaced in 2014) and French doors opening onto the back deck. The upper floor has an airy and spacious primary bedroom with king-sized bed, 3-piece ensuite bathroom with heated floor, ample closet space, and windows looking out to the ocean. The second and third bedrooms are perfect for kids (queen- and twin-sized beds respectively). Huge unfinished basement has a bar fridge, chest freezer, fully-equipped laundry room and tons of shelving and storage space. Gorgeous, fully-fenced, West-facing backyard is a quiet oasis in the city. The two-tiered deck extends your living and entertainment space with a barbeque, outdoor dining table, umbrella and outdoor club chairs. Grassy back lane is ideal for safe family play – like an extension of the yard! Garden beds ready for flowers or veggies, grass to play, relaxing garden bench, lovely mature Garry Oak tree for partial shade, and a low-maintenance front yard. Automatic irrigation throughout. Driveway and street parking. Very walkable / bikeable location with two great shopping villages (groceries, hardware, boutiques, galleries, cafes, and restaurants) blocks away. Everything is close: downtown (10 min drive), University of Victoria (7 min drive) and Camosun College Lansdowne (6 min drive). Bus routes to downtown as well as universities / colleges minutes from the home. Use our stand-up paddleboards to explore the coastline! Rent is $5500/month and includes all utilities and internet. We can provide cleaning and/or gardening services for small additional cost if wished. Two references and a security deposit of one months’ rent required. We want to find quiet, respectful, non-smoking tenants (professional couple or small family) who will care for our beloved home as we do. We are looking for the right fit so if you are interested, please contact us for more information or to discuss.
