Maplewood Neighbourhood Overview
Maplewood is bordered by Saanich Road to the East, Maplewood and Blenkinsop Roads to the west, and between Tolmie Road to the north and Cedar Hill Cross Road to the south.
Located in the municipality of Sanich East, Maplewood is a favoured neighbourhood for young families. As it allows you to be within a short commute to downtown Victoria but in an area where you get bigger bang for your real estate dollars.
The neighbourhood is mostly made up mostly of single family homes, although there are a few apartment buildings and townhomes, mainly along the busier arteries. The bulk of the houses were built in the ‘40s and ‘50s, with a fair number built in the 60s and 70s and a small number of houses built in the last 10 or so years, which have replaced the original homes.
Maplewood homes tend to have larger lots and as the topography of the area has many trees, hills, and rocky outcroppings – it is not uncommon to find homes that offer privacy along with vistas towards the Sooke Hills.
