South and a bit west from Sidney on Vancouver Island lies the lovely community of Brentwood Bay. Directly on Saanich Inlet north of Victoria, Brentwood Bay is home to the world-famous Butchart Gardens. Brentwood Village offers excellent accommodation, waterfront restaurants, and all amenities, and is also a jumping-off point for kayakers, canoeists and mountain hikers.
Previously named Slugget, after pioneer John Sluggett who settled in the area in 1876, the village of Brentwood Bay was given the rather more appealing name in 1925. Brentwood Village takes its name from the English town of Brentwood in Essex, home town of R.M. Horne-Payne, president of the British Columbia Electric Company in the 1920s.
Currently there are 25 active listings for single family homes ranging from $$439,000 CN to $1,948,000 CN. If you are a boater, it could be a perfect place!
