Sipping Tea on the Lawn

At last, spring! It is so full of promise—everything uplifting lies ahead of us. Gone is the bracing weather and the scurrying down the street. There are people everywhere in bright colors and cheerful temperaments. For me, the beginning of spring is always marked by eating outdoors. My favorite thing is long lunches with large glasses of ice-cold water, chatting into the afternoon with nothing more arduous to do later on than lie in a hammock with my book in the shade.

Can you picture yourself in the same setting?  Does the home you presently have lend itself to such indulgence?

No !  Well consider this home which has come on the market for the first time since it was constructed 30 plus years ago.

Well priced at $659,000, this 2700 sq. ft. 3 bedroom, 3 bath home on 2 plus acreage is an ideal opportunity to do just that. Situated in the heart of the much sought after Metchosin District, you cannot go wrong with this investment.

Take a look at the following photos and envision yourself relaxing in the back yard or wandering the cedar chipped trails that meander throughout it.

After you have settled in you can treat your outdoor setup as you would the indoors, as a combination of dining room and living room. I like outdoor tables to be laid similarly to indoor ones, as though the dining table had literally been picked up and set back down on the terrace or under a tree in the garden.
