Overview

About the property

2,073 Sq Ft in total; suite is 1,273 plus 800 Private Roof Terrace & Garden.

One block from the inner harbour, on Government Street, in the heart of the tourism district and walking distance to a wide variety of fine restaurants, is where you will find this exclusive penthouse.

The spacious two storey condo is a stylish heritage conversion perfectly located in the heart of old-town Victoria. What sets this meticulously restored building apart is that it meets modern building requirements, yet preserving one of Victoria’s heritage treasures, the famous 125 year old Victoria hotel. Originally built in 1892 as a first class hotel designed by architect Thomas Hooper, it is now named Vogue and is the perfect blend of modern facilities with the romance and magic of old-world design.

Located at one of the hippest intersections in the city's commercial core, the rows of storefront and upper storey windows of this building provides an intermediate connection between the historic Old Town and Chinatown.

The private, beautifully landscaped, 800 sq ft roof terrace and garden overlooks the popular intersection of Government and Johnston streets. This gem is truly one of a kind!

Its unique heritage features are exquisitely blended with all the modern comforts.
