Single Family in Victoria

One of the oldest homes in the city & among the first architect-designed homes in Victoria. The architectural firm, Wright and Sanders, was responsible for shaping many commercial buildings downtown, along with very esteemed residences, including the Emily Carr house. Known as “Woodlands”, this charming abode was originally crafted in 1861 for James Bissett, who owned the home until 1889. For the next 98 years, the home was owned by the Newbury Family. Approaching 160 years in existence, this home has only been sold 5 times. In the 90’s the house underwent an award-winning renovation. The home was stripped down to the studs and restored completely. New plumbing, new electrical and gas lines were all added as well. The home has 200amp electrical service, ¾ water line, central vacuum, gas furnace and gas fire places. The foundation and structure have been reinforced with seismic upgrades. 3D walkthrough & floor plans are available on the website. Own a piece of Victoria's history!
