Whatever your natural habitat may be

I have listed a new property at 446 Moss ST in Victoria.

There’s plenty of room and lots of flexible options for the modern family in this charming Edwardian-era Arts & Crafts style home located in the heart of Fairfield on well-known Moss Street near the Rockland border. It could remain an investment property (it’s been used this way for many years although it’s not a permitted use by the City) or could be converted back to a single family home, possibly with an in-law suite.


A newer stone retaining wall and steps lead up to 446 Moss and its heritage-designated, mirror-image twin at 448 Moss. 446 Moss features character elements such as high ceilings, a claw-foot tub, stained glass, and built-ins. The house has a newer roof, 200-amp electric panel, and gas furnace on a low-maintenance urban lot with a private west-facing backyard, three porches, and a patio.


This home has five bedrooms, three kitchens, and in-suite laundry on each level. A single-family configuration could include up to four bedrooms on the upper level, up to two on the main, and one on the ground floor. The storage/utilities area on the ground floor once held a potter’s studio and might be an artist’s studio again.


446 Moss Street is close to shopping, schools, entertainment, restaurants, parks, and more and has a Walk Score of 85! It’s also a great place for cycling and is across from Sir James Douglas school – home of the Moss Street Farmers and Craft Market.


Moss Street extends from the Art Gallery to Clover Point at Dallas Road and is renowned for the Art Gallery Paint-in, held one Saturday in July every year, as well as two waves of cherry blossoms in the spring. Nearby you’ll find Robert J. Porter and Moss Rocks Parks as well as Brooke Street Green. Government House in Rockland with its beautiful public gardens is a short, pleasant walk away.


Fairfield is home to many character homes, vibrant Cook Street Village (a 10 minute walk or a quick bike ride), the Dallas Road oceanfront walkway including Ross Bay, and Beacon Hill Park. This home is less than a 10-minute drive to the heart of downtown Victoria and all the culture, food, and shopping it offers!
