NEW LISTING: 50 King George Terrace in Victoria BC
$1,398,000 MLS 356823
An early Victoria Character home built in 1911 and then added on in about 1932. A long-time resident of the home was Major Frederick Victor Longstaff; a Nautical Historian and one of the founders of the Maritime Museum of British Columbia. It was here at his home called 'Seabank' that neighbors would see the Major at his telescope looking across the Juan de Fuca Strait at all the maritime activity in the Gonzales Bay just off the coast.
Character Home: high ceilings, mahogany inlay oak floors, four fireplaces
Entering this grand old home reminds the visitor that they just don't built 'em like this anymore; beautiful oak flooring with mahogany inlay; tons of wood trim with fine detailing, beamed ceilings. Put it all together and it's a grand home for entertaining with tons of warmth and character and there's many large living spaces to spread out comfortably.
Ocean Vista over Gonzales Bay, Juan de Fuca Strait and across to Washington State's Olympic Mountains
The home at 50 King George was built on a high rock outcropping - the perfect place for a million-dollar, unobstructed view of the ocean, mountains and the sunsets over Gonzales Bay. The view is panoramicfrom the east, to south and to the west; few homes in Victoria have such a magnificent vista. Not only can you see this view from the main floor principal rroms but the second floor sitting room off the master is even a better place to just sit and let the view mesmerize you.
