When it comes to finding luxury homes and real estate in Western Canada, there aren’t too many neighbourhoods that attract wealthy owners with the same regularity as Oak Bay. Located in Victoria, Oak Bay consists of some of the most affluent neighbourhoods to be found on the Pacific Coast, including the exclusive and touted homes of the Uplands. Luxury oceanfront and ocean view properties for sale in Oak Bay are some of the finest in Canada.

Oak Bay is comprised of several neighbourhoods. The aforementioned Uplands is one, and Willows Beach, North Oak Bay, South Oak Bay and Windsor Park round out the area.

The big draw for beautiful homes in Oak Bay is, of course, the oceanfront property winding along scenic Beach Drive. The Drive features  many stately heritage mansions and estates and well as some newer luxury homes, built to take advantage of this fabulous and upscale location. Oak Bay is filled with houses with appraised values in the multiple millions, many of which have sweeping views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Haro Strait, and the Olympic Mountain Range.

All of that ocean means that residents of this affluent community have easy access to several beaches, including Willows Beach and Gonzales Beach. As you might have guessed, recreational opportunities abound in the Oak Bay area; there are several golf courses including the modest nine hole par 3 Henderson Golf Course and the much more impressive Victoria Golf Club . Founded in 1893, the Victoria Golf Club of Oak Bay is the second oldest golf course in western North America. It consists of 6000 yard links, and runs along the beautiful Pacific coastline. The Royal Victoria Yacht Club and the Oak Bay Marina are located in the neighbourhood as well.

Aside from the proximity of the Pacific Ocean, Oak Bay’s main appeal is in its commitment to a British influenced lifestyle. Many of the homes in the neighbourhood are built along the architectural lines of the Tudor and Arts and Crafts traditions. The centre of the community is Oak Bay Village, the most urban style part of the neighbourhood. Here, residents will find exclusively Oak Bay opportunities such as English modelled tea rooms, pubs, and antique shops. The centre is also the location of the Oak Bay police department, one of the only neighbourhood police outfits in Canada. To round-out its excellent ammenities, Oak Bay also houses some of Victoria's most prestigious private schools including Glenlyon-Norfolk School and the Junior School of Saint Michael's Univeristy School.

There are several luxury real estate opportunities for those wishing to make their homes in Oak Bay. The main style of the neighbourhood is the single stand alone family dwelling, which invariably includes expansive and well maintained yards and gardens. There are also a number of upscale retirement condominiums, apartment and townhomes close to "The Village."

Multiple options for luxury living, a uniquely English flavour, and of course an abundance of luxury oceanfront property make Oak Bay an ideal choice for many buyers in the British Columbia luxury home market.
