Property sold by Engel & Völkers Vancouver Island

816 Linden Ave

Victoria BC

SOLD! - $1,350,000 CAD 05/16

Built in 1907 by Herbert Bale for local businessman Percy Raymond, this home was built in the Edwardian vernacular style with little expense spared. The house features beautiful original woodwork, stained and cut glass windows and doors, beamed ceilings, period fixtures and many original features that make the house a treasure, including a large south-facing sunroom surrounded by fragrant magnolias. Quality is evident throughout the house, from the lovely oak and mahogany inlaid floors right down to the decorative door hinges. The entire house was painstakingly restored in 2012; new electrical, new roof and gutters, full insulation; floor refinishing; restoration of woodwork; security cameras and monitoring; new kitchen and appliances; fully painted inside and outside and decorated with tasteful and sympathetic finishing. Unique duplex zoning in place. The property is close to one quarter of an acre (10,000 sf) and includes the main house, a two car detached garage, a patio dining area and pergola and a beautiful pavilion. The landscaping which recalls an English country home with boxwood hedging, fragrant hydrangeas and iris, includes a sprinkler system, fountains and outdoor lighting. Within the property is arguably one of the finest collections of magnolias in the city; the front garden has breath- taking pink and purple Magnolia Campbelii “Darjeeling” and Magnolia Sprengeri “Copeland Court” as well as the fragrant “Royal Crown”. In the early spring, literally hundreds of people take photos of these beautiful trees while they are in bloom. In the back garden, Magnolia Sargentiana “Robusta” is a cloud of white blooms, towering as high as the house and the equally large Magnolia Grandiflora is a stunning evergreen tree that produces fragrant, creamy blooms as large as a dinner plate. The rear garden is very private and contains large plantings of non-invasive, black bamboo, a stunning rhodo and azalea collection and other lovely perennials.
