A home currently on the market in the Oak Bay area of Victoria, BC would best be described as "modern" -- but was actually originally built in 1958.
Meticulously renovated and upgraded (to the point where, save for classic touches, there's really no indication of the home's true age), the home is located at 3005 Rutland Road on the outskirts of Uplands Park, a literal two-minute walk from the water.
The picturesque community of Oak Bay is located in the southeast corner of Vancouver Island and Victoria, and is home to numerous beaches, all of which are accessible via the aptly-named Beach Drive.
A bit further inland is the Uplands Golf Club, a five-minute drive away from the home.
Now, onto the home itself: the estate consists of six bedrooms and six bathrooms across three floors, totalling 5,044 sq. ft of living space on a 0.62 acre lot.
The expansive main level includes a private den, a primary bedroom, an elegant living room, a gourmet kitchen, a dedicated dining room, and a family room, all with oversized windows looking into the backyard.

The yard was professionally landscaped and fully fenced; it's large enough that you can't quite see the end of it from inside the house, and provides direct access to the Uplands Park, which has one of the greatest concentrations of rare plant species in all of Canada, according to the District of Oak Bay.
In addition to the four bedrooms on the upper floor, the lower level also has another large bedroom -- with an ensuite bath -- plus an expansive entertainment room, an exercise area, storage spaces, and outdoor access.
Our Favourite Thing
We're known to swoon over natural light, and the windows along the back side of the home are a marvel. They span almost the entire length of the house, with more glass than walls, providing an expansive view of the yard -- not to mention enough sunlight to bathe the whole main level in brightness.
Classic, chic, and paired with its tremendous location within a tremendous community -- location is everything, as they say -- this is one of those places that isn't just a house, but a home.
