"Personal Attention That Makes a Difference"

Stunning character home or duplex/triplex with excellent revenue a few houses in from Dallas Road waterfront near Ogden Point in James Bay.
37 Oswego - MLS# 314979

This is a gorgeous Arts & Crafts character home with exceptional revenue, just a few doors in from beautiful Dallas Road waterfront near Ogden Point, where the cruise ships sail to and from their docks throughout the summer season. It is currently being used as a three-unit revenue property - and being sold as a turnkey operation that comes complete with furnishings and leases in place. The layout is such, however, that the home could easily be reconfigured for use as either a single-family dwelling or a home with a revenue suite up - or down. Lots of possibilities here!

The charming two-bedroom owner's suite on the main boasts stunning stained glass, original fir floors, high beamed ceilings, antique light fixtures, a classic vintage fireplace now converted to gas, picture rails, pocket doors, clawfoot tub and a wonderful bright sunroom overlooking the garden niches at the back. The artsy upper suite is spacious - with an appealing, open floor plan, bright with multiple skylights, intriguing angles, window seat, a free-standing woodstove. From here one has access to a delightful private balcony with rustic steps leading way way up to a darling rooftop deck with dazzling ocean views. The lower floor holds a cozy, nicely-appointed one-bedroom garden suite and common laundry, lots of storage, a workshop and a secure bike room.

The house itself has updated plumbing and wiring. Kitchens have been nicely refurbished, as well as all three baths. The hot water tanks and gas furnace are newish. The home is meticulously maintained, the owners having addressed a project or two every year, with fresh exterior paint and landscaping this summer. There's really nothing at all left needing doing at this point.

 Outside you'll find beautiful gardens, mature trees and greenery, grassy spots and peaceful niches for relaxing, whether in sun or in shade. Or you may choose a sit on the pew on the old-fashioned porch, watching the horse-drawn carriages trot by with their fares from around the world. Enjoy the sight of the festively-lit ships at rest at their berths. Or the sun setting over the picturesque Ogden Point Breakwater.

And once you leave your cozy home, stroll down to the local courts for a quick game of tennis. Feed the seals, meander past the houseboats or enjoy locally famous "Barb's" fish and chips at Fisherman's Wharf. Make your way along the waterfront cliffs up to Beacon Hill Park, a place of exceptional beauty in every season. The local school is a block away. Shopping can all be taken care of In James Bay Village, just a few blocks away, with its handy mix of grocers, flower shops, coffee shops and cafes, or you can venture a wee bit further to partake in all the fun of the Inner Harbor and lovely downtown Victoria beyond.

Visitors call Victoria a city from a fairy tale - a city known for its charm and character and its many parks and gardens. This home - this neighborhood - exemplifies the very essence of what we Victorians are all about.
