Sidney Neighbourhoods – Sidney Northeast

by McLean Real Estate Group on September 24, 2014

Sidney by the Sea, north of Victoria BC divides neatly into 4 neighbourhoods along the axis of Beacon Ave and the Pat Bay Highway.  In the Northeast quadrant lies (appropriately!) Sidney Northeast.

The southern portion of this neighbourhood is largely commercial, as it follows the town’s main drag, Beacon Ave.  There is a quaint, small town atmosphere to Sidney. The friendly streets are peppered with bookstores and the relaxed feeling of many seaside communities.

A few blocks north of Beacon Ave you’ll find an established residential neighbourhood, with housing ranging from apartment or condo style housing to single family homes.  One of the advantages of living in a small town like Sidney is the walkability factor.  Everything is reasonably close, so you don’t have to own a car.  When you need to visit Victoria or catch a ferry at Swartz Bay there is a robust transit system to get you where you need to go.

Perhaps you would forgo car ownership in favour of owning a boat of some sort; there are 2 marinas within the Sidney Northeast neighbourhood:

  • Van Isle Marina, on Harbour Rd. at the northern tip of the neighbourhood – visit their site, or
  • Port Sidney Marina, further south, near the town centre – see here.

Sidney Northeast Schools

Children living in Sidney may attend:

  • Sidney Elementary School – visit site
  • North Saanich Middle School – see here, or
  • Parkland Secondary – click this, which offers a specialized sports academy and an innovative marine program.
