Rarely is the combination available of a classic house completely modernized and nestled on almost an acre of park-like setting in one of city’s most desirable neighbourhoods. 2420 Lansdowne was designed in 1911 by architect Samuel McClure with Francis Rattenbury as draftsman. Victoria developer, Bruce McLay purchased the home for his family, and moved it to a corner of the lot where he set it on a nine-foot basement. Mclay meticulously stripped the structure to the studs and added contemporary conveniences to modernize the space while keeping the original character intact by leaving the original panelling and carved fireplace brought around Cape Horn from Scotland. Modern updates include large, double-paned windows, plantation wood shutters, a 400-amp commercial-sized electrical system, copper plumbing, modern insulation and drywall, a new roof, five new fireplaces, forced air heating, and air conditioning. With its own entrance and parking, the large, sunny, nine-foot-ceiling basement office provides the perfect environment if you are working from home. This level also features a billiards room, large spa, weight room, and guest bedroom. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms including the primary bedroom - each with its own bathroom – as well as the conveniently located laundry room. The two-car garage was built new when the house was moved and, also, includes a large workshop, tool room, and stairs leading to an attic storage area. There is a fully fenced garden area at the rear of the garage - ideal for pets and young children - while the rest of the meticulously kept, mature grounds provide a haven for residents and guests alike.
