Sooke River (and Sun River Estates)
Live along one of the largest rivers on southern Vancouver Island
The Sooke River Neighbourhood runs along the east and west banks of the Sooke River and includes the popular Sun River Estates development (which also borders De Mamiel Creek!)
From pristine, secluded riverfront acreages, to brand new arts-and-crafts style houses, the Sooke River Neighbourhood is one of Sooke's most diverse areas. Running up Sooke River Road (before the bridge), you'll find several affordable mobile home parks, riverfront homes and cottages, and hobby farms and acreages.
At the end of Sooke River Road is the fabulous Sooke Potholes Park, which offers a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear waters of the Sooke River, camping, hiking, and biking along the Galloping Goose Trail.
Crossing the bridge, you'll come to Philips Road. Turning right you'll see the Sooke Region Museum and the SEAPARC (Sooke Electoral Area Parks and Recreation Commission) arena and pool.
Continuing past here will get you to Sun River Estates, one of Sooke's finest new subdivisions. A planned community started in 2004, Sun River Estates has beautiful craftsman-style homes in many different stylish designs. The floor plans are functional, the finishing beautiful, and the lots are large. Many homes back on to green space and parkland, including De Mamiel Creek, and trails surround and criss-cross the neighbourhood. There are also gorgeous townhouses in Sun River's first multi-family development, The Pointe. There are many existing homes for sale, or you may choose to buy a brand new home, which will be built in about six months.
