Just a short drive and yet a world away from city life in Victoria, Highlands is a unique district with a strong sense of environmental responsibility and conservation.

Homes in this rugged rural community range from rustic cabins to luxury estate properties, all nestled gently into the surrounding wilderness.  People who live here must be prepared for less city services than most areas in Greater Victoria.  Water is supplied by well and there are no sewers, sidewalks or subdivisions, but the natural beauty of Highlands more than makes up for it.

The lack of services and subdivisions means that Highlands is often overlooked by people who aren’t comfortable with rural living, which means that lot prices are quite reasonable (although figures from 2011 are skewed by the sale of one large parcel of land).

So if you are are looking for a rural lifestyle, close knit community and scads of natural beauty you should investigate properties in the District of Highlands.  Here you can experience living in the wilderness and still commute to your downtown Victoria workplace in about 15 minutes!
