...located on southern Vancouver Island's beautiful Saanich Peninsula
Serena Madrona is a 1900 sq. ft home located on Vancouver Island's scenic Saanich Peninsula, just a stone's throw from the ocean.
This light filled, modern home looks out to the privacy of cedars and deciduous trees at the back with the ocean and a small marina just a few steps across a country road.
Serena Madrona is on 2 levels with 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms located on the second floor. The main floor features open concept living...kitchen, living and dining with fireplace...as well as a separate den, full bathroom and mudroom. The master bedroom offers ocean views as well as a large soaker tub and shower in the ensuite. French doors in the second bedroom open out to a large sunny deck.
On the main floor there's easy access to a spacious patio for relaxing and barbequing as well as a small fire pit for evenings. With the rural nature of the property, wildlife is abundant - deer frequently pass through the garden along with the occasional sea otter and racoon. Eagles and hawks soar overhead while owls, ravens, bunnies and squirrels are all frequent visitors.
The charming village of Sidney-by-the Sea is 10 minutes away by car, as is the BC Schwartz Bay Ferry terminal and the Victoria International Airport (YYJ).
There are many hiking trails, parks and beaches nearby for kyaking and canoeing as well as easy access by ferry to explore the beautiful Gulf Islands.
The world famous Butchart Gardens is a short 15 minutes drive and the beautiful "Garden City" of Victoria, is just 35 minutes.
This area offers so many activities and places to explore that it may be difficult to just take a day off to relax and enjoy your beautiful patio with a good book and a cool drink!
