Sidney and Saanichton real estate
Saanich is a beautiful area of farms, acreages, and rural properties. Some areas have homes on leased land which is an affordable way to enjoy a quality home. Saanich is the ideal location for a home-based business like a bed and breakfast or artisanal workshops. Large lots and land are ideal for keeping small livestock or farming organic produce and herbs. Saanich real estate is always in demand due to the rarity of flat, arable acreages within a short commute of Victoria. If you enjoy open spaces and a quiet, rural lifestyle, then the Saanich Peninsula might be what you’re looking for.
