This desirable heritage neighbourhood located just 4 kilometres from downtown Victoria has a distinct British influence that has been maintained over generations. This influence is so powerful that even today, Oak Bay is locally referred to as ‘behind the tweed curtain’! Despite its age and repute, this neighbourhood continues to be innovating and maintains an inclusive and vibrant residential and commercial community. Unlike many North American neighbourhoods, Oak Bay was designed using a British ‘high street’ model creating a neighbourhood village on the main street, Oak Bay Avenue, comprising important daily commercial business such as banks and grocery stores as well as specialty boutiques, wellness centres, cafes, restaurants and more! Radiating outward from Oak Bay Avenue are beautiful green spaces, stunning beaches, exclusive recreation clubs, oceanfront resorts, top-tier public and private schools and premium assisted-living facilities. While this area is generally known for its higher real estate price tag, affluent clients looking to invest in this elegant borough of Victoria can find single-family homes on idyllic streets, high-end condos, and stunning oceanfront homes.
