Your day starts early as usual. You sip a cup of coffee while watching the sunrise from your balcony before heading down to the fitness room for your morning workout. On the way back, you run into one of the newest homeowners in your building. You chat for a few minutes and make plans to meet for drinks that evening on the terrace. Breakfast and a quick shower, now you’re ready for a morning meeting downtown, and then lunch and shopping with a friend. Your car is waiting for you in the secure parking lot and you head out for the day.
Just 20 minutes from downtown Victoria, the drive is short even though it feels like you’ve headed off to a resort every time you pull up! Today, as you return home, you notice that the groundskeepers have been hard at work, the lawns have been meticulously manicured once again. Your partner is home already when you arrive and you decide to walk over to the restaurant for dinner. Before you leave, you sit down to go over your schedules for the week. Tuesday evening there is a cooking class at the cooking theatre with a world class chef and there is a showing at the community’s art gallery this Friday so you make plans to attend together. Your dog has a day booked at the pet spa on Wednesday so you agree to drop her off before you leave that day. Your grandchildren are coming for a visit on Saturday so you make a note to stop by the community grocery store to pick up some of their favorite snacks as you’ll spend much of the day enjoying 650 ft of pristine private shoreline.
Your home is located in The Douglas, a distinguished 5-story building at the heart of the Pacific Landing community, just steps away from the restaurant so a few minutes later, you’re at dinner. Over dinner, you discuss destination ideas for your next trip. Travel is one of the passions you share and living at Pacific Landing gives you the freedom to travel without concern for maintenance or security at home while you’re away! With your anniversary approaching, your partner wants to head south but you’re hoping for Europe. You agree to look into both options.
After enjoying a fabulous dinner, you decide to walk down to the community garden to check on your section before meeting your neighbors on the terrace for drinks. This is one of your favorite things about the community. With so many unique amenities and services available right on site, you have the ability to choose the lifestyle that is perfect for you and the arts and culture that Victoria offers are just minutes away.
Your home is one of only 20 units in the stunning Douglas building which features a designer mix of old and new with transitional craftsman exteriors and contemporary interiors. One of your favorite features in your home is a custom wood mantle milled from wood recycled right here on site. You love to show this off to guests when they visit for the first time. You also love the high ceilings and luxury finishes which make your home feel large and luxurious. Smart Home Technology, which came standard, lets you monitor and control your home easily.
You’ve never regretted your decision to join this community. You never have to worry about security, yard work or maintenance but the options and customizations available let you enjoy many of the benefits of single family living at the same time. It’s was the perfect choice for easy, customizable oceanfront living!
