The Isabella is ready for her close up!

We’ve been extremely busy over here @ Nu-View Homes getting The Isabella ready to show off!  The suites are now complete and Unit #2 has already sold! Don’t worry though; there are still two others that you could make your own!

Unit #3 is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom 920 sq. ft. condo.  Inside you’ll fantastic finishes, Chef-Series appliances and a remote controlled gas fireplace. It also has a spacious south-facing patio that is perfect for entertaining guests and barbequing.

Unit #1 is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom 1604 sq. ft. townhouse that boasts a master suite that occupies the entire upper floor! Exquisite finishing and attention to detail went into creating this showcase suite that also includes a 520 sq. ft. south-facing deck!

The Isabella is a Character Conversion project and the interior of Unit #1 is a perfect example of this. Inside, historical features exist symbiotically with contemporary touches. This is epitomized perfectly in the kitchen and the adjacent dining room. The dining area is crowned by a beautiful coffered ceiling and the sleek, white gloss cabinets that wrap the adjacent kitchen aesthetically contrast the historical detail. The meshing of “old” and “new” features throughout the interior is nothing less than stunning!

Oh, and speaking of Unit #1’s kitchen! It was built by our very own Nu-View Homes’ crew and it is pretty fantastic if we do say so ourselves! If you or anyone you know is looking to renovate a kitchen, give us a call! We’d love to transform your outdated, drab or unfunctional kitchen into the kitchen of your dreams!

We’ve set up a Presentation Centre @ 344 Irving Road that’s open Monday-Tuesday 10:00am – 6:00pm, Wednesday-Friday 9:00am – 5:00pm.  The Isabella is ready for her close-up, so please come check out this gem for yourself!

The Irving Project is now “The Isabella”

Progress is coming along nicely down at 344 Irving Road in Fairfield. The units have taken shape and the finishing details are being added with cabinets, plumbing fixtures, tile and flooring being installed.

What’s in a name?

With the finish line coming into view, this beautiful character conversion project needed an equally special name and the fabled pioneer, Isabella Ross, provided the inspiration. Isabella was the wife of Hudson Bay Company Chief Trader (at Fort Victoria) Charles Ross and was the first woman to own land in Victoria.

The Irving Update – Coming Into Focus

Our current project on Irving Road in the Gonzalez neighborhood of Victoria is moving along nicely.  Important technical aspects like the plumbing rough in, and electrical rough in have been completed and we’ve gone ahead and backfilled the foundation.

The concrete has been poured and leveled for the two downstairs units, and the boys have been busy erecting the interior walls.

It’s getting easier to imagine the finished product.

Sure everything is concrete and bare wood right now, but can you see all the light coming in through that window? It’s easy to see how great the kitchen will look here.

There could be more cabinet space… but we will work on that later.

Our office desk might be made out of plywood and nails, but there’s no reason this shouldn’t be someone’s ideal workspace someday.

We can’t get ahead of ourselves of course. There’s still a lot of work to be done down here.  The fire separation needs to be completed, and we’ll be starting work on the upstairs portion soon. It’s good to have a vision of the finished product though. When you know what you’re driving for, it’s easier to take the straightest path towards your goal.

Our team dog “Timber” has tried to teach us this valuable lesson with his own keen vision.  Where some people might see only a bobcat excavator bucket, he sees a comfortable bed in the sun. You have to respect that eye for potential.

Found in the Top 100

As we talked about last week, the Irving Project in Victoria is coming along nicely. Our plan to renovate this Fairfield heritage home into three distinct luxury condo’s is still in its early stages, but already we are seeing some great indications of success.

Canadian Real Estate Magazine released a report this week detailing the Top 100 Canadian Neighbourhoods to invest in. Fairfield in Victoria was right at the top, sharing space with neighbourhoods like Vancouver’s Yaletown for its unique homes and tree-lined avenues.

It feels good to be a part of this areas reputed potential, but for now we still have a project to finish.

News 1130 reported on the story here.

The Irving Project

Nestled among the green garden streets of the Gonzales neighbourhood is a quiet little road named Irving. It’s a scenic area of Victoria, and a pleasant place for a Sunday drive.

It’s also the location of Nu-View Homes’ latest project, and it has us very excited.
