You'll be enchanted by this unique offering in a lovely oceanside niche in the highly desirable Arbutus neighborhood. With a brilliant south-east exposure, this spectacular, secluded .7 acre property is tucked away off a no-exit lane up a winding drive that circumvents a beautiful natural spring-fed pond fringed with a footpath and flowering perennials. There's a mature and picturesque weeping willow, a fountain, an arch stone bridge, a dock, a fountain and a whole family of resident ducks! Gorgeous park-like grounds with gently sloping lawns and palms, fruit trees and random beds of shasta daisies. You'll swear you were back in the Cotswalds! The gracious 50's family home has been expanded and updated over the years and sits at the top end of the property with multiple windows, patios and balconies looking out over the gardens and pond. You even get wee ocean glimpses from the upper level. Spacious rooms, dormer alcoves, blonde oak floors, two fireplaces, one in the cozy family room and another in the huge formal livingroom with its giant picture windows. Good functional kitchen with quality appliances, white cabinetry and blue granite countertops. Classic formal dining room. Gigantic high-ceilinged master suite. Den/office. Single-car garage. Several outbuildings including a glass greenhouse. Sweet private sun-drenched patio out back off the comfy kitchen and family room. Grounds are irrigated by the pond so inexpensive and easy care. Locarno Lane is a well-loved and highly-respected street of beautiful lots with a country feel, sporting well-maintained homes old and new. Just down the hill from the University and next door to the expansive Queen Alexandra grounds, close to Gyro Beach, the Royal Victoria Yacht Club and all the amenities of the cute, quaint enclave that is Cadboro Bay Village.
