Prior House is a stately mansion that is the perfect mixture of a fine historic residence and the charm of a luxurious boutique Inn. Prior House was designed and built in 1911 for Edward Gawlor Prior, who served as British Columbia’s Premier, and also as the Lieutenant Governor representing the English Monarch in the province. From the moment you enter this extraordinary home you’ll know that you have discovered an authentic architectural treasure. Symbolizing our rich Canadian history, Prior House has been thoughtfully restored to its original architecture, and renewed to artfully integrate luxurious modern conveniences such as spa-inspired baths. The 8,000+ square-foot residence is set on a large garden property in the quaint neighbourhood of Rockland, Victoria’s hillside garden jewel. This wonderful estate goes well beyond and above our perceptions of a typical Bed & Breakfast property. Acclaimed for its authentic early Arts & Crafts styling, this magnificent property is listed on the City of Victoria Heritage Registry and is a Victoria Historic Site.
This remarkable property brings together the ultimate in heritage design, the comforts of a luxury five-star, four-diamond estate mansion, and the magic of living in an authentic heritage masterpiece. It is the perfect home-away-from-home for discerning buyers seeking a luxury property in the City Of Gardens for personal use while in Victoria, or as a retreat for family, friends, or business associates. The income generated from this fine estate residence will ensure that all ownership costs are offset by income, and that the investment will yield a financial return to owners. Of course, Prior House can also be easily returned to its natural existence as a grand and luxurious family residence. We invite you to explore this rare real estate offering.
