When it comes to Victoria and Vancouver Island, there may be no better neighbourhood to live in than Rockland.

Home to the famous Craigdarroch Castle, Rockland is perched atop a rocky hilltop right in between Victoria, located towards the west, and Oak Bay, located towards the east. In Victoria, there waits all the hustle and bustle of the city. In Oak Bay, there waits all the cool and calm of the ocean.

From the property at 1750 Patly Place, which is currently on the market for $2,100,000, both are less than 10-minute drive away — as are countless other beautiful parks and scenic landmarks.

As if the location wasn't already great enough, the home itself, which is nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and down a private driveway, is also quite the looker, boasting a modernist look and feel. Originally constructed in 1982, the home consists of four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a total of 3,403 sq. ft of living space.


Immediately upon entry, you're met by a balcony area in the middle of the foyer, which looks down onto the home's beautiful indoor garden. Next wait the living room and dining rooms, which sit against a wall of windows that usher the natural light into the home. Past the dining room you'll find the L-shaped kitchen, which has been tastefully updated in recent years, and comes complete with a charming dining nook.

A family room, adjacent to the kitchen, provides access to a spacious deck that wraps around two sides of the house, while an office and one bedroom are also located on the first floor.

Our Favourite Thing

The deck is simply wonderful. Portions of it are very secluded, thanks to nearby trees that tower over the home, while other portions are free of obstructions and provide beautiful (and elevated) views of the surrounding area. What's more, there's ample space out here for lounging, dining, and entertaining.

Three of the home's four bedrooms are located on the two-storey abode's lower level, which is centred around that aforementioned indoor garden. The primary bedroom is 15' x 17', not including two walk-in closets, a modern five-piece ensuite bathroom, and a 15' x 4' balcony. Also located on the lower level is a secondary living area, equipped with a kitchen, living room, and separate entrance, making the space perfectly suited for guests or extended family members.

All in all, the home is both beautiful and functional, and is situated in a fantastic location. We don't expect this one will be on the market for very long.
