Authentic French country design creates a welcoming retreat near the heart of Victoria. The inviting exterior of this 3,394 square foot custom home combines substantial stone, wrought iron and concrete detailing to give the impression of timelessness. A dramatic custom water feature is circumnavigated to reach double wrought iron gates providing access to the covered entryway. Built in 2006, exposed beams and an oversized gas fireplace make the great room very appealing and polished concrete floors are highlighted by multiple, over-sized bespoke double doors. The contemporary layout offers a chef’s kitchen with separate prep area, an attractive den and an enticing primary suite on the main floor. The lower level offers a flexible layout with possible separate suite/Air BnB. There is extensive storage and garage on this level. A low maintenance lot with green house offers an array of opportunities for growing vegetables and includes established perennial plants. This is truly an urban oasis.
