3 Bed Single Family Detached in Victoria


255 Government St


Luxurious Victorian Queen Anne heritage home located in the heart of James Bay, steps from Victoria’s lively inner harbour, lush Beacon Hill Park, and the scenic coastline along Dallas road. Meticulously restored and recently upgraded, this priceless piece of Victoria’s history impresses with extensive jade tiled walls and floors, upholstered walls and vaulted ceilings, and period inspired lighting. Zoned R2 as duplex allowing garden suites, boarders, and home occupations. Pre-inspection report just completed with any issues identified resolved. Grey exterior is a conceptual rendering of what can be achieved with new paint.
