Located in the Uplands area of Oak Bay, I just sold this House at 2780 Dorset Road, Victoria, BC .  In September there were 21 homes sold in the Oak Bay area and 207 year to date.

A little Uplands history... 

Landscape architect John Olmstead, of the prestigious Boston company Olmstead Brothers, was engaged to design the "high-class residential subdivision".  Olmstead's 1907 masterpiece was based on the "Garden City' concept then popular in England and the United States.  The design featured curving boulevards branching off a central axis, abundant green space, underground wiring and spacious lots.  Francis Rattenbury was hired as chief architect and supervised the contruction of the 13 buildings completed before the economic downturn of 1913.
