Why Ross Harris chose Gordon Head
We grew up in the University of Victoria neighbourhood. I returned here and bought this house when my mum was older, in her own home, and needed us close by. The street I live on was a farm until the 1970s. My house was the replacement farmhouse, after the original farmhouse burnt down in 1957. There are large holly trees on the property - being part of the original farm. This house was built in 1958, when they were building very solid houses. I've upgraded the kitchen and replaced all the windows. It is so quiet here, and it never gets too hot outside because of a light breeze off the water. I like to watch the ocean going ships go by, as I used to sail them all over the world. There is a terrific fenced dog park at UVIC (about 10 acres). There is a park 4 minutes walk from the house, where children can play and dogs can exercise.
What makes this House unique

Good price and location
Good for dogs and kids. Share kitchen and laundry. Over all good stay.
Thanks for your review. The kitchen was used for cooking dinner only for one young engineer who ate in his own suite.
