We are a year round tourist destination with many activities to explore. Heathwood is unique in its location in the beautiful Mt. Newton Valley. We are minutes to the Brentwood Bay Ferry which will take you to Mill Bay where you can drive thru many beautiful valleys and towns, each with their own character and attractions to explore as you head to the north end of the island. Or simply take in all there is to offer right here on the Saanich Peninsula. Wine tasting tours, local beaches, local artists galore, and so much more. The world famous Butchart Gardens and the spectacular Butterfly Gardens are a short 5 minute drive, The Brentwood Inn and Spa offers a very nice Restaurant and Pub both with a lovely view of the pretty inlet of Brentwood Bay. Only a 3 minute drive from us.

Brentwood Bay also offers good restaurants and local shopping. Due to our mild climate Scuba Diving and Kayaking is a year round sport. A great place to access some excellent kayaking and scuba diving . As you paddle along the calm, protected waters and enjoy the beautiful natural scenery. Keep an eye out for wildlife, as bald eagles, ospreys, seals, otters and sea lions as they are commonly spotted!

within minutes from us.

Hiking is very popular. John Dean Part overlooks the pastoral Saanich Peninsula, the Gulf Islands and the Cascade Mountains and offers many year round hiking trails

Enjoy our local Golf Courses year round many within minutes from us.

The town of Sidney -by-the -sea is 10 minutes away and has many unique stores and delightful restaurants. Sidney is alive with culture and entertainment. The City of Victoria and capital of British Columbia is a very easy 20 minute drive.

Shopping

Victoria has a superb shopping scene, with anything that would be found in a larger city, plus a few things that wouldn't.

So many artists and artisans call this place home that unusual and one-of-a-kind items are everywhere.

The BC Museum is a must, The Maritime Museum is fascinating for a look at the past, visit Helmcken House, Emily Carr House and Craigdarroch Castle, which all preserve daily life in the 1800s.

Victoria is lots of fun with amazing shopping, a great variety of fabulous restaurants, theatre, live theatre and the performing arts.

Have fun visiting our beautiful City knowing that within minutes you can return to the peace and tranquility of Heathwood.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My Husband and I have travelled extensively. When, one day we sailed to Vancouver Island, we were captivated by the beauty of this entire area and knew that we had found a gem. We felt incredibly fortunate that we really stumbled on this stunning Island and knew that this is where we would love make our permanent home.

Why the Owner Chose Central Saanich (Central Saanich, BC, Canada):
Ollie and I walked through the gates leading onto the property and we were immediately aware of the charm that this property offers. IT TRULY IS SPECIAL.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The beauty and uniqueness of the valley allows us to live in the heart of the countryside, surrounded by farms producing fresh local produce where the honor system is still often used. We are in the perfect location; with easy access to Victoria the capital city of British Columbia, a short 15 to 20 minute drive. Or if we wish to explore this magnificent Island the Pacific Marine Circle Route is the perfect one-day drive. Including visiting West Coast beaches and parks, world famous ancient forests and mammoth trees… with interesting and quaint places to see along the way such as “Point No Point” for tea with a stunning view, French Beach, China Beach, Port Renfrew and the fascinating Botanical Gardens the trailhead of Pacific Rim Park, Cowichan Lake , the list is immense. After a day of sight seeing and discovering new places to return to the peace, beauty and tranquility of Heathwood is a treasure we never take for granted. Victoria and the South Island region is home to many exceptionally talented chefs who turn local products into memorable dining experiences. Taste the amazing foods from the region, fresh produce, Pacific seafood, fine wines and ales at the restaurants in the area or bring the delights you find home to enjoy in your “home away from home” – Heathwood.
