I have listed a new property at 3170 Aldridge ST in Victoria.
This solidly built 1950 family home has been well maintained and tastefully updated, there is very little else to do but move in and enjoy. Excellent, central location just blocks to Camosun College, St. Michaels and Lansdowne schools, also within walking distance to all your shopping needs at the Hillside Mall and easy access to bus stops for getting downtown or to the university.

Inside you will find a spacious living area on the upper level that features original solid oak hardwood floors and coved ceilings throughout. It offers a desirable family layout with 3 bedrooms on this level. The bright combined living/dining room has large picture windows and a wood burning fireplace. You will love the professionally renovated kitchen, recently outfitted with a new tile floor, attractive new cabinets & countertops, a central “eating island” with double sink and modern appliances. For the gourmet chef the kitchen is “gas ready” (current appliances are electric). The main 4 piece bathroom has also been nicely updated.

In the Kitchen are French doors that lead to a fantastic entertainment sized deck for those sunny BBQ days. From the deck there are stairs to access the good sized fully fenced lawn & garden area with mature hedging offering complete privacy for all your outdoor activities. Most of the plants are perennial, (peonies, rhodos, irises, roses) there is some really nice trees; a fruit bearing apple, a corkscrew willow and a star magnolia. Also included is a built-in sand box.

The lower level is perfect for the kids, teens or company and feature an extra bedroom, an office area, an updated 3 piece bathroom and a good sized rec room with a cozy gas fireplace. The new wall to wall carpeting in the Rec Room & Bedroom help make these areas warm and inviting. Also downstairs is a utility/laundry room with large front loading Maytag washer and dryer and right beside them is a big wash tub. Here you will find lots of extra storage and access to the attached over-sized single garage (25x11) ideal for more storage or a workshop.

The house is heated by a forced air furnace that can be powered by either oil or electric, your choice (whatever is cheapest at the time). Other improvements include a new hot water tank, newer thermal vinyl windows, painting inside & out and a completely new two line perimeter drain system. Roof is approaching mid-life and in good condition. Outside there is room for two cars in the driveway (one in front of the other) and right beside this is a large flat paved area ideal for parking a boat, tent trailer or RV. This updated home and property offer great value in a preferred location.
