4 Bed Single Family Detached in Victoria


1745 Rockland Ave
MLS® NO: 425864


NO EXPENSE has been spared by the current owners to bring Ashton House back to it's former splendor, blending old world charm, contemporary luxury, and modern conveniences into a work of art that must be seen to be believed. Originally designed by the renowned architect Francis Rattenbury in 1898 for "Sir Lyman Duff, who later went to become chief justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, this home is one of the city’s finest examples of the American/English “Shingle Style”. Located in the prestigious Rockland area, among many other notable early Victoria properties, on 18,000 sf of perfectly private, and beautifully landscaped grounds, featuring many large oak trees, and a recently installed 52 ft lap pool and poured in place hot tub. A heritage mansion of this cachet and caliber is indeed a rare find in Victoria. Everything has been beautifully restored and tastefully updated beyond what can be described here.
