World Class Oceanfront Estate, Victoria B.C.
The elegant 1913 English Tudor manor sits majestically on a 2.25 acre garden offering over 450 feet of Victoria’s finest oceanfront. Sweeping views reach from Mt. Baker to Mt. Rainer and the Olympic Mountains beyond. The home is ideally suited for the golf enthusiast as the Victoria Golf Club is located directly across the street.
The rich wood paneling, high ceilings and crafted moldings throughout the home represent the architectural grandness of the era, yet also provide a feeling of warmth and intimacy, ideal for family or entertaining. The carved entry doors open to a welcoming center hall, leading on to the reception parlour adjoining both the living room & dining room. Prepare to be enchanted!
The Dining Room is truly like “No other.” Grand and gracious, this elegant room provides seating capacity from four to forty. Separate bevelled glass doors open or close to dictate room size. A spectacular skylight sits directly over the dining table flooding the room with light. Two temperature controlled wine cellars are easily accessed for red or white wines. The lowest floor has a professional cellar as well, allowing for a total of 2000 of your finest vintages!
The kitchen, which is accessed through swinging leaded glass doors, is equally impressive, suited to the most discerning chef. The original granite wood burning fireplace is a special feature which sets the tone of the room, warm and inviting alongside the center granite island. The sellers spared no expense to ensure this room resonated authentically with the architect’s intent.
Rare Blue stone slate flooring carries across the kitchen and family room out to the expansive patios stepping down to the magical gardens. The patios lead over a bridge with a beautiful fountain water story flowing underneath. You are transported into a world of privacy and serenity. The lowest patio is perfect for outdoor dining with fire pit. A bit of merriment is available at the 85 yard golf hole, ideal for fun or practice. Further down the pathway you can retreat to your own private pebble beach!
Returning to the reception area you pass the authentic 450 gallon salt water aquarium, visible from the spacious living room. The main Salon is a wonderfully elegant space with abundant wall area for art and sculpture display.
The spacious master suite on the second level is completely self contained. It offers a convenient kitchen bar area, flat screen TV, built in speakers, plus a sumptuous ensuite with a marble shower for two and separate water closet. Enjoy the privacy deck as an ideal vantage point to watch cruise ships pass at night. The warm wood paneled Library bar is adjacent to the master, an ideal spot to share a late night brandy on your own or with guests.
Salty Towers is a grand manor with 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, adequate to accommodate all guests! The uppermost dormered floor contains 5 of these bedrooms. The bathrooms were designed to provide the greatest amount of privacy and flexibility with back to back water closets plus sequestered double lavatories and showers, slim and elegant as the Orient Express.
The lowest level (above ground) provides a complete one bedroom suite, a snooker room, and the mechanical room with three hot water tanks, never to run out of water for the guests!
The property further ensures comfort with its natural gas instant response generator for those few times that nature causes a power outage.
The municipality is bordered by the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the south, Haro Strait to the east, the District of Saanich to the north and north-west, and the City of Victoria to the south-west.Learn More
