Beautiful home in Victoria, British Columbia

Our Home

Completely wheelchair accessible beautiful home in a cul-de-sac, one block from the ocean, with picturesque walks along the seafront, and with classic Pacific Northwest views of the Georgia Straight and the Olympic Mountain Range.

More about this property

Our 1912 home was architecturally renovated almost ten years ago to accommodate wheelchair access but is in no way institutional. The result is a pleasant spacious floor plan with heritage details.

Ground floor: Kitchen (opening onto backyard patio), dining room, living room (with home theatre), den, master bedroom and bathroom, utility room (with front-loading washing machine and clothes dryer). Attached garage.

First floor: Open office, playroom, bedrooms 2, 3 and 4, bathroom.

Second floor: Open sitting room, guest bedroom and bathroom.

Our Neighbourhood Beach

The Fairfield area of Victoria is known for being close to the sea and main city park, and full of heritage homes. People often walk from here to downtown and own no cars. Or children walk an easy 0.9 km to school every day, and groceries and speciality shopping can easily be reached on foot too.

More about the neighbourhood

There is an excellent bus route half a block away that is wheelchair accessible and takes bicycles too.

In addition to being the capital of British Columbia with an excellent museum, library, university and host of cultural activities, Victoria is a very outdoors-oriented city. We have plenty of hiking in the many regional parks and cycling routes (along the Galloping Goose trail), and SAILING (we even have a well run disabled sailing association here, as well as a disabled ski club at the local ski hill, Mt Washington).

About Us

We are a family of five with three children attending the local and excellent elementary school (French Immersion and English), 0.9 km away, an easy walk up the hill. Nick is a retired physician, and I am Kim, the "mum", who looks after our three children, aged 11, 7 and 4.

More about us

The older children enjoy reading (local libraries are important), cycling, piano, soccer, and swimming. Our eldest would be keen to pursue her competitive swimming aspirations while we are away in France, so we would love to find them both a place to swim.
