Highlands

13.4 C
Victoria

When rural, mountainous living meets park lands, lakes, and rugged terrain, the community of Highlands is in the crosshairs. Perched up in the high mountain region northwest of Victoria, Highlands encompasses Gowlland Tod Provincial Park, Mount Work, and Lone Tree Hill. Single-family homes are poised atop mountain peaks or nestled into private forest retreats—all on large plots of land affording rugged, beautiful privacy.

Impossible to navigate without a vehicle, the region is connected by challenging mountain terrain, and long winding roads. Dwellings range from quaint rustic cabins to multimillion-dollar estates, with residents who all appreciate the solitude and self-sufficiency their location encourages.

At the Southernmost tip of Vancouver Island, it’s not hard to see why Victoria has been dubbed the “Garden City.” With the mildest year-round weather in Canada, and with its buildings nestled alongside coastal bluffs, beaches, and parks, Victoria is a beauty and recreation seekers paradise. Bike paths and walking-distance amenities knit together neighbourhoods, and ocean views are expansive.  

But, far from being a sleepy small town, Victoria blends its compact charm with the vibrancy of culture, experience, and industry. With the most restaurants per capita in Canada; a downtown core boasting professional services, luxury condominiums, and shops; and vibrant neighborhoods teeming with boutiques, cafes, and more, Victoria is the perfect blend of charm, beauty, and bustle.
