Moving to Cordova Bay & Broadmead in Victoria BC – Victoria BC Neighbourhoods Guide Episode 2

Cordova Bay and Broadmead are two beautiful seaside communities located in Saanich. They sit between the Patricia Bay highway, which happens to be the main arterial that runs north and south and connects to our downtown core to the Saanich Peninsula. Both communities have amazing natural wonders and are dominated by large single family detached homes, tree filled lots and privacy. However, there is density in certain pockets in 2021. The average sale price of a detached home in Cordova Bay and Broadmead was just over 1.6 million dollars. Townhomes come in just over a million dollars, and condos were just bellow, sitting at around $992,000.

Pros. Things that are great about Cordova Bay and Broadmead.

The pros? Number one, there plenty of different lifestyle options, whether you’re a retiree looking for peace and tranquility, or a young family who’s looking for great schools and places to spend time outdoors, both Cordova Bay and Broadmead are a great place to live. Second, the great outdoors. Sitting on the Pacific Ocean, we have some of the most amazing costal rainforest in the world. It’s an amazing place to get outside and breathe, golf, run, and can wander down the dockside trail. Number three, is the access. Whether you’re trying to get to the airport, ferries, or into downtown Victoria, you’re sitting directly in the middle and just close enough to the highways to get you in and out.

Cons. Things that aren’t so perfect about Cordova Bay and Broadmead.

Now, there are some cons with living in this area. Unless you live within a block of Maddox Farm or Broadmead Village, this is a drive only type of neighbourhood. Unfortunately, there aren’t a ton of amenities within walking distance. Secondly, there are a lot of really tall fur and pine trees and a lot of the time in the winter months especially, it can feel a bit dark and you’ll be spending a lot of time cleaning up pine needles on your roof.

The Hidden Gems

Maddox Farm, which is mostly known by locals holds amazing artisan shops, great places to eat like Adrienne’s, and some amazing places just to spend an afternoon.

Another hidden gem is Parker Park, or as I like to call it, Parker Beach. It’s really an extension of Cordova Bay Beach just a little further north and the access is a lot more private off of Parker Avenue. So, you’ll have a lot less people that are just visiting Cordova Bay and more people that are actual locals enjoying the ocean scenery.

If you’re looking for miles of sandy beaches along the pacific ocean and beautiful tree lots in Cordova Bay and Broadmead may be the neighbourhood for you.
