Oak Bay Village Offers Charm and Location

Oak Bay - Victoria, BC

Oak Bay Village provides a unique atmosphere for real estate buyers. This enclave of Victoria is commonly known as more English than England and that's present in every component of the city from the traditions and culture along with the architecture. What's nice about this area is that it is only a few minutes to Downtown Victoria.

On the other hand, there's also some of the best walkable neighbourhoods here. This area of Downtown Victoria is perfectly suited for a Saturday spent shopping at high-end shops and enjoying fine dining at area restaurants. The pubs and cafes here, very English in style, are ideally suited for those nightlife experiences.

In addition to this lifestyle, Oak Bay Village also provides some intense opportunities for outdoor exploring. There are various beaches, gardens, and large parks in the area as well as a few playgrounds in the residential neighbourhoods. It's home to the oldest golf course in Victoria and, for those that enjoy biking, is home to the Seaside Touring Route. History is present on many of the buildings in this area, as well as in the cultural festivals that take place here.

Buying real estate in Oak Bay Village means choosing from charming older homes to updated lofts and town homes. You may also find the single family homes located in this area to be ideally suited for raising a family. Finding the right home in this area of Victoria takes a bit of expert information from the area's leading real estate agent.
