There are retirement parks, and then there's Central Saanich Estates, known on the peninsula as a well-run and friendly 55+ development. This is one of the largest homes in the park, sitting on a big corner lot with easy space for two-car parking. Access to the home has been modified to include both stairs and wheelchair ramp. Beautifully updated with an open airy floorplan, boasting three bedrooms, two full baths, a ginormous livingroom, gorgeous eat-in kitchen plus a separate formal dining room. The gracious livingroom with its vaulted ceiling sweeps around from a bright bay window with floor to ceiling glass at one end to a stunning stone wood-burning fireplace at the other, book-ended by pretty recessed windows. Elegant master with cathedral window and a full, wall-length closet enjoys a 5-pce ensuite with separated WC. There are two more good-sized bedrooms at the opposite end of the home plus another bath and laundry and utility room. Terrific outdoor living space includes a partially-covered deck area with the rest open to the sunshine with its south-facing exposure - a perfect afternoon lounge and barbeque center! All nicely privatized with potted cedars. You'll also find a small backroom workshop/storage area, additional dry storage in the crawlspace, plus a free-standing garden shed in the back yard. Back and side yard are fully fenced for pet owners, which are welcome with Park approval. The rest of the surrounding lawns and gardens are trim and green, with neatly manicured hedging.
The "Estates" is located on Central Saanich Road just down from Mount Newton X-Road, so a hop, skip and jump up to Saanich Peninsula Hospital and Saanichton Village a short way beyond, with its full array of essential living amenities. Also just off the Pat Bay Highway, so an easy jaunt out to Sidney, Swartz Bay or into town.
