588 brookleigh road is for sale again despite selling last year for 4mill. This time 3.75m. Must be a story there!

Edit: I looked at the evalue website and I don't see the sale price listed. I know for sure there are new people living there though. Strange.

Their last residence was a 12,000-square-foot home in Shaughnessy, but their new home is a baronial mansion perched on a sharp hillside at the north end of Elk Lake — designed by legendary local architect Samuel Maclure.

It has a huge pond, stone bridge, brick driveway, seven garages, a charming children’s playhouse — an exact replica of the big house — and three hectares of gardens, which the owners are keen to restore.

that's quite a nice feature on a great old house.

They've done an amazing job ... the house, and especially the grounds were seriously let go during the years of no occupancy.

Images of that home, from several years ago and in its pre-renovated state, were pinned to my apartment’s fridge as inspiration/motivation to get my butt in gear. Every day I would look at those images, and every day they inspired me to push a little harder and reach a little higher.

Today I may not live at the Oldfield Mansion, but man, it sure feels like I do.

this king george terrace home seems to have lots of dead space (stairs then a anticlimactic platform at the bottom).

 

i also think it would be cold getting out of that pool.

 

$10.5 M

A home in Sooke has sold for $6.5 million, the highest recorded sale for 2019 in the Greater Victoria area and the second-priciest sale to date in the municipality.

 

The custom-designed, 5,672-square-foot home was built on the shores of Becher Bay in 2015. It sits on 10 acres of land and boasts more than 1,620 linear feet of oceanfront with a private pebble beach and a private, 15-metre dock.

Even more than that I think some folks here tend to forget re: outdoor pools that this is Victoria - it ain't Cabo, or Cancun or San Diego: we do get winter here if not in the traditional sense certainly in the form of dark, damp, bone chilling and wet moisture-laden fall and winter air. We have friends who bought and reno'ed a South Oak Bay property a few years ago about two blocks up from McNeill Bay with a pool and huge second floor south facing deck off the master bedroom.

 

He later said after they sold it less than three years later that having a pool/deck in that location was a huge waste given the comparatively rare times they could use them in comfort, due mainly to the wind and breezes blowing off the water. The local waterfront and by extension the JDF Strait is pretty to look at but it ain't no Caribbean or Sea of Cortez.....
