5 Bed Single Family Detached in Victoria
28 Marlborough St
MLS® NO: 919544
When you want a pedigree with your home the name Samuel Maclure in Victoria architecture says it all; quality craftsmanship and exquisite design are the hallmark of Maclure’s style for character residences. The rooms are a generous size and are in proportion with the flow of the home, and the exquisite finishings are evidenced through the intricate in-laid wood floors to the wainscoting and built-in mill work and French doors. The kitchen was renovated 6 years ago with custom wood cabinetry in classic white shaker and quartz counters, Wolf gas stove, attractive tile back splash, pantry with pull out drawers, and loads of useable storage. The dining room can accommodate large dinner parties. Two generous sized bedrooms on the main level, and two more on the second story. The upper bathroom was renovated at the same time as the kitchen and increased in size (with city permit) to create a separate walk-in shower and beautifully refinished original claw foot tub, heated tile flooring, and double sinks. Downstairs suite for overflow family members, nanny or some supplemental income; there are 2 bedrooms, or one bedroom and a great space for teens to have some privacy with their own kitchen and bath. Located on a coveted street in Fairfield, one block to the water and one block to the iconic Beacon Hill Park, this location will capture your imagination. Separate Maclure storage shed, professionally designed easy care landscape, and the lower level deck once housed a hot tub. Walk to the Cook Street Village for your daily groceries, the Olympic Mountain range and Salish Sea are visible at the end of the block, and downtown is just a few minutes away by car. This home has been in the same family for 36 years and is ready for a new generation to take the helm. Updated electrical to 200 amps, hot water radiant with a natural gas boiler heat and supplemental baseboard electric heating downstairs.
