Stunning Rockland Residence! Built in 1889, Ellesmere is steeped in history. Designed by architects Trimen & Tiarks, many features are similar to those of Craigdarroch Castle and can not be found in homes of todays age. While maintaining the elements of a heritage mansion, this home has been extensively renovated to tastefully meld the old with the new. Offering phenomenal craftsmanship throughout with wood paneling, decorative plaster ceiling, exquisite fireplace details, stained glass and a grand staircase. Updated gourmet kitchen (with high end appliances) that is open to a spacious family room with the perfect blend of modern and traditional. Large formal dining room is impressive and perfect for entertaining. Off the kitchen is a south facing terrace overlooking the Gardens and views of the Ocean and Olympic mountains. The upper level offers a master suite with spa inspired ensuite & 2 view balconies, 3 more spacious bedrooms and 3 more bathrooms. A bonus ground level self-contained 2-bedroom garden suite is perfect for guests! Situated on a tranquil ½ acre property and within walking distance to all that downtown Victoria has to offer. This home must be seen to be fully appreciated! It is not often an opportunity to own a property of this rarity comes along!
