The big sell: This Cordova Bay property is in one of Victoria’s finest neighbourhoods and has eye-catching delights, both inside and out. The home was built in 1983, but was taken back to the studs in an almost complete rebuild two years ago. This has produced a sophisticated contemporary interior that includes Brazilian cherrywood floors, vaulted ceilings, pendant lighting, french doors, and gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-range appliances, quartz countertops and a gas range. As well, the home has new windows and skylights, ‘floating’ fireplaces in both the living and family rooms, spa-like ensuite bathrooms off all three bedrooms, and an expansive 30-by-18-foot master suite. The exterior continues the attention to detail with a 10,400-square-foot private lot that has an in-ground swimming pool, patio, underground sprinkler system and a landscaped garden. The “wow” factor is completed by the panoramic ocean views of Cordova Bay.
