Description

Welcome to Steeple View, located in the brand new Era building, a development by the award- winning Concert Properties, developer of The Chelsea, Astoria, and Belvedere.

We are so pleased to offer this superior 2 bedroom/2 bathroom southeast-facing corner condo, one of the best units in the new Era building in downtown Victoria.  This bright and beautiful corner suite provides tall glass windows on the south and east sides of the building, eight feet ten inch room heights inside offering urban, heritage architecture and mountain top views that are more than enough to make Steeple View a great choice.  

Why do we call it Steeple View?  You can see 4 elegant church steeples, as well as The Olympic Mountains’ snow-capped peaks (the most desirable view of all in Victoria).
 
The spacious plan of the modern kitchen, living and dining space allows maximum viewing pleasure in an airy environment.  The 8th floor location is high enough that surrounding buildings do not negatively impact the open feeling and the 270 degree angle view. The balcony which is recessed into the corner of the building will feel wonderfully private, although open and free.
 
The suite includes laminate wood-patterned flooring in living room, dining room, and kitchen; wool carpet in the bedrooms; and large format porcelain floor tile in the bathrooms.  Expansive windows with contemporary roller blinds will let you take in the magnificence of the Olympic Mountain views, the steeples (of course!) and the urban beat of the city at your feet.

Sleek and sophisticated stainless steel dishwasher, fridge, microwave with integrated hood fan, built-in wall oven and glass electric cooktop are features of the well-equipped kitchen you will find here.  Everything you need to make a gourmet meal in house since you may find it hard to walk away from the views.


The master bedroom and the second bedroom each feature a comfortable queen bed with a plush pillow top mattress, high quality linens and wall mounted TVs, as well as black out blinds.  The master bedroom has a large shelved closet, and a bathroom ensuite with tub/shower.  The second bedroom has a smaller closet.  Both beds have convenient under bed drawers for storage and there is an additional closet in the entrance hall. The second bathroom features an extra-large glassed-in shower compartment.  This suite has been thoughtfully equipped with everything you need in the kitchen and elsewhere, as well as a washer/dryer.

Tasteful and eclectic art adorns the walls and gives the place a real sense of home feeling - peaceful, trendy and yet classic.
 
Recently, Victoria’s renowned Fol Epi and Agrius Restaurant opened in the Era and is located on the main floor, featuring contemporary regional, locally-based cuisine, and an in-house charcuterie in a wine-bar/deli/bakery/restaurant atmosphere combining the elements of food, beverage and community.   Their philosophy, based on the Slow Food Movement from Italy, values local, sustainable and traditional approaches to food product, menu items, and preparation.  In this millennial time of the experience economy, Fol Epi contributes, surpasses and makes memorable the culture of culinary satisfaction as journey.

Era highlights the best of the past and future by seamlessly blending existing historic architecture with modern concrete and glass.  Note the preservation of the previous building’s original exterior brick wall of rich-textured masonry which forms the east wall of the building lobby.  Building security is a hallmark of Concert Properties design with restricted access to visitors with access to the floor to be visited and no other building section.

Common area amenities include a well-appointed lounge with bar, TV and entertaining room which adjoins a spacious, landscaped terrace including outdoor seating, a residents’ garden, fire pit and Webber barbeque.

One of the most desirable attributes in a neighborhood is walkability. Staying at Steeple View means you won’t need to cross a bridge or walk across town to get to your favorite store, restaurant, or Victoria’s business core.  Shops and services, theatres and restaurants, and many of Victoria’s best tourist attractions and venues are just minutes away. 
 
Much like Victoria itself, Era harmoniously blends vintage with contemporary, integrating a heritage brick façade with modern concrete and glass.  This is modern and traditional co-existing harmoniously and awaiting your arrival and appreciation.

Important Notes:

Bike storage can be a tricky issue.  Every building has a different bike storage policy and there are no guarantees that spots will be available.  Every building has a zero tolerance for bikes in the lobbies or elevators, fines will be issued for such.  If you are bringing a bicycle, please be aware that it is your responsibility to check to see if the unit you want to rent has a place to store it.

We recommend renting bikes while you are here, many of the bike rental companies will allow them to be stored there at the end of the day even if you rent them for a week.

If you have a large vehicle, please be sure and check the garage clearance for the building to make sure your vehicle will fit.

Please see NOTES for more specifics related to this property.

Thank you for a wonderful stay at Steeple View. It was a great home base for three full days of sightseeing in Victoria. The kids really enjoyed Beacon Hill Park, especially the petting zoo and we even made it to see the "running of the goats." The short drive to Goldstream Provincial Park and relaxing evening at Butchart Gardens was well worth it. One of the highlights of the trip was going on the whale watching tour, which was extra special as we were able to see the solar eclipse from the water. There were some beautiful and fascination sights-the Government House tour was terrific. It was so nice to come back after a long day to a clean, comfortable condo to get rest for the next day. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

What a gorgeous space! The hosts were incredibly accommodating and let us check in 2 days late (we had multiple flight cancellations). The location is perfect, very walkable to a ton of coffee shops, restaurants, the Empress, the mall - pretty much any downtown spot youd want to try. The common area was a great place to hang & enjoy a nice fire. The safety in the building was excellent and we had no problem utilizing the parking garage. The views from the apartment were awesome and the bedrooms were equipped with tvs. Beautiful amenities, well taken care of and highly recommended!! Thank you!!

We loved the apartment. It was super clean ,well appointed and as smartly decorated. The location was perfect. We walked everywhere and there were great places to eat and get coffee everywhere. We loved the little bakery downstairs called Fol Epi- amazing pasteries and bread. We ate there several times. We also had dinner at 10 Acres Kitchen and Foo- both really good. The people in Victoria were so friendly and helpful, including the concierge. I would definitely refer friends to your property.

What a festive time to be in Victoria! The Butchart Gardens were amazing and it was a good choice to spend the whole day there. The crowds really thin out in the evening for the music and lights-so serene. The Parliament tour was excellent and the scenic drive out to Oak Bay is well worth the time. We even got to play the piano set up on the coast at Cattle Point Park. Great food in Victoria-Barbs Fish, Irish Times, Bodega Tapas... Your condo was perfect for us-great location, so clean and it had all we needed. Thanks!

We had a great time in Victoria, and the Steeple View was excellent for us. It was very clean, had a great view, and we had everything we needed. Dani was very efficient in her communication, in meeting us, and introducing us to the apartment and things to see and do in Victoria. Butchart Garden was beautiful, and it was worth spending most of a day and evening there. The Parliament tour was quite worthwhile as well. We just enjoyed walking around the city as well.

As far as location, accommodation, equipment and overall comfort are concerned we rate ERA805 (SteepleView) as an A. As far as attention to our occasional needs you provided service of an A++ level. We have rented many privately owned vacation properties in Canada, USA and Europe and we have found Victoria Prime to be most professional and a pleasure to deal with. Next time we visit Victoria, with any luck, we will experience better weather. Nonetheless we found the city and the island beautiful, a pleasure for walking about, and filled with places of interest. We have barely scratched the surface.

The hosts communicated fast & efficiently during and after the booking process. Our concierge, Dani, was fantastic. She was patient with us as we reached several hours late and she settled us in and even helped us on our way out. The location was fantastic! We walked to all restaurants and attractions. We had a parking spot in the building itself. Only downside of the location was that it was quite noisy (cars & people) if we kept our windows open during warm nights. The apartment was well furnished and had everything we needed. Everything was very clean and comfortable. Only downside here was that the rooms were tiny and the beds felt smaller than queen beds. Overall, we really enjoyed living here and would definitely stay here again with a small family.
