3 Bed Single Family Detached in Oak Bay
3400 Upper Terrace Rd
MLS® NO: 907806
This gracious 1939 home set amongst the curving boulevards of Oak Bay's Uplands neighbourhood, was originally designed for Mrs. E.D. Burton and has been lovingly cared for by the present owner for the past 40 years. This is a charming home, built in the English Tudor tradition. Features include an inviting front porch, large entry hall, walk-in cloakroom, English Oak flooring with mahogany boarder inlays, leaded glass French doors and windows, a spacious living room, formal dining room, and a lovely den with fireplace that leads to a sunny patio overlooking the garden. Up a wide reversing staircase is a large landing and 3 light filled bedrooms and a corner office. The full height lower level features a large family room, workshop and laundry. The double garage is attached to the main residence. The splendid gardens, mature oak trees, and picturesque pond all correspond to Uplands designer John Olmsted who in 1907 laid out the foundations for this beautiful and timeless neighbourhood.
