Your New Address: 137 Joseph Street $710,000 Just Reduced The Heart of Fairfield Located on one of the quietest Fairfield streets, this beautiful 1912 home has retained the original Arts and Crafts character in the living and dining rooms that are so sought after. From the beamed ceilings and built-in bookcases with the leaded doors, to the character fireplace and period light fixtures, you get the sense of a bygone era as you enter the home. But this home has modern touches too. The home was renovated extensively in the early 90’s, with the addition of the office area / sun room at the rear of the home (new basement space under), new drywall on many of the walls and ceilings, recessed lighting, new stucco, marble and tile flooring, and the new finishing in the basement level, adding two bedrooms, a four piece bathroom, and the rec room... perfect family space. Two bedrooms on the main, two bedrooms in the lower, and a bathroom on both levels, with the gas furnace and hot water tank upgraded at that time. And the present owners have just added a new fibreglass-asphalt roof, topping the long list of recent upgrades to this house. Shall we talk about location? One block from the ocean at Ross Bay, about four blocks from Fairfield Plaza for shopping, about eight blocks to Beacon Hill Park or Cook Street Village, and an easy bike ride to downtown or Oak Bay. And Joseph Street is among the quietest and prettiest streets in Fairfield.
