Real Estate in Jubilee
Jubilee is a mainly residential neighbourhood with apartments, condos, and lovely heritage homes. Your realtor can find you a pre-war cottage-style home, or you can buy a property in a renovated historical building like an apartment with a mid-century or older façade. Multi-bedroom, pet-friendly contemporary condos with amenities like rooftop gardens or fitness centres are also available in the Jubille neighbourhood.
The majority of the single-family houses in both the North and South Jubilee areas are post-WW2 builds. About 1/3 were constructed before the 1960s, and the rest were built between the 1960s and the 1980s. Many old character homes have a historical feel, and the houses built along the main routes are more elaborate and ostentatious, with modest dwellings behind.
If you want to live in a quiet area on a mature tree-lined street, consider the one- or two-bedroom houses, townhouses, and condos for sale that are further back from the busy Fort Street, Bay Street, and Foul Bay Road. Low noise levels are a perk to living in Jubilee, especially in the evenings when the traffic dies down. The neighbourhood is older and very safe, with a calm and mellow ambiance, and the residents are a mix of seniors, families, and renters.
About Jubilee, Victoria, BC
The Jubilee area of Victoria, BC, is split into North and South Jubilee communities. Oak Bay and Saanich border the northern section. South Jubilee is a triangular-shaped neighbourhood extending from just south of the Royal Jubilee Hospital, bordered by Fort Street, Oak Bay Ave, and Foul Bay Road.
Known colloquially as the hospital district, within the neighbourhood of Jubilee, the Royal Jubilee Hospital, Canadian Cancer Agency, BC Cancer centre, and National Institute for the Blind can be found. Regardless of proximity to the hospital, there is no excessive ambulance noise, as they turn off sirens once they enter the residential streets.
Due to its proximity to medical services, Jubilee has become quite busy on the main corridors with many important streets and routes leading to all city points. It is the main transit corridor to UVic, parks, and neighbouring communities.
With its flat landscape, the 20-minute walk from downtown is easy, and many city bus lines pass through the community. Parking is easily found if you drive, but it is walkable enough to be suitable for running errands on foot or by bicycle.
Shopping options in Jubilee include boutiques, ethnic restaurants, a grocery store, a liquor store, and other major shopping centres are just outside the Jubilee neighbourhood. There are green spaces and well-used parks, places of worship, restaurants, and cafes within walking distance wherever you are. Schools and daycares can be walked-to with two elementary schools, a middle school, and a high school nearby.
