As choice properties featuring breathtaking views, seclusion, generous space, fresh air, and unspoiled nature have been dwindling at an alarming rate, the purchaser who values these special qualities often feels compelled to venture forth to more distant rural areas.
However, a little more research will reveal an amazing location with all of these desirable characteristics, less than 30 minutes from the city of Victoria, and just 15 minutes to upscale Broadmead Village. Willis Point is easily accessed up a picturesque, winding road wending its way through the centre of Gowlland Tod Provincial Park, an area of natural old growth which encompasses this location, acting as a permanent buffer and protection against encroaching urban development.
Willis Point offers waterfront homes with stunning sunsets and calm inlet waters, as well as residences featuring ultimate privacy, and often beautiful ocean views. This is an area of multi-million dollar homes, original log cabins, and modest dwellings – an eclectic neighborhood with a mosaic of residents from computer specialists with their own home businesses to creative artists who thrive in a tranquil setting.
Willis Point is bounded by the Highlands to the south, Saanich to the southeast, Central Saanich to the east, and Saanich Inlet to the north and west. 46 percent of Willis Point is devoted to parks, including parts of Gowlland Tod Provincial Park and Mount Work Regional Park, with the remaining land comprising a well-established residential community and large, undeveloped forested parcels. Economic development is limited to small, home based businesses, providing an escape from the busyness of city life for its small community of residents.
