Notes on the Geography of Canada (B.C.): Victoria's Houses 1: Photo 15
Land values are so high in Victoria that the will to subdivide often proves irresistible. This house originally sat on 2.5 acres not more than 300 yards east of Government House. It had no dormers, the hedge was lower, and the view was unobstructed over wildland sloping toward the sea. Developers were up to the challenge. Six houses now share the land, and the old backyard is now mostly street and driveways. In 1968, the rent for the "unimproved" version was $225 a month.
