A little about the Development......

Park Place is about quality of life! Homes at Park Place have been designed for efficiency and economy without sacrificing quality and luxury detailing. The variety of floor plans offered will appeal to young families, retirees and professionals alike. Well over half of the development site is dedicated as CVRD parkland hence the name Park Place. Award winning Cadillac Homes in its tradition will be finishing each home with a fully landscaped yard complete with automated sprinkler systems (one of the water conservation measures taken by the developers) and in doing so create an entire neighbourhood by design with beautiful streetscape.

(incl. bsmt w/sep entrance) and is situated right in the heart of Shawnigan Village. It was formerly a Barber Shop and more recently the Elford Farm Busstop Bakery & Coffee Shop, the current owners went to great expense moving it to its present location (2003) and doing many renovations (incl: adding a bsmt, new roof and septic system)over the last few years.

I normally start my flea program in early July to make sure nothing gets a head start because with my mob of dogs and cats it would be horrible. Pets are happier, heallthier and far more comfortable.
