Single Family in Victoria
Built in 1900 by a professional bricklayer as his own home; stone foundation over bedrock in an early Arts & Crafts style. Converted to a legal side-by-side duplex in 1975 and almost a ""blank slate"" for the buyer. A 5 min. walk to Thrifty Foods, shopping and services at Menzies & Simcoe, about the same to Beacon Hill Park, the Dallas Road beaches or the Beacon Hill Drive-in. A 10 to 15 minute walk to downtown. An ideal location for those who don't drive or plan not to in future. Dogs & owners will love exploring James Bay's quiet streets, parks and beaches. For boaters and fishers there's the James Bay Anglers boat launch; Fisherman's Wharf, Ogden Point etc. Even wind-surfers and para-gliders are only a 10-15 min. from the action. And for the busy traveller, Helijet & Harbour Air are also only a 10 -15 minute walk. All in a quiet, friendly neighbourhood. Demographics, transportation & ecology will shape the future market; be in the right place before the rest catch on! (id:153)
About the Neighbourhood
The character of James Bay is exemplified by its slower-paced atmosphere. Parks are very well-distributed and there are about 10 of them nearby for residents to discover, which results in them being very easy to reach from the majority of locations within the neighbourhood. This area is also quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour.Learn more >
