Luxury townhouses are a rare commodity in Victoria. Developers nowadays cater more to the bread and butter market for townhomes in general, as most sites zoned for this type of project can only be maximized by creating two or three level townhomes that are not popular with the more affluent, and typically older set. One level living is preferred by them, and that is typically more easily obtained in a condo, especially in the Victoria core. There are some exceptions in Saanich in areas like Broadmead for example but the choices are few and the demand is high. There is still a reasonable selection of two and three story townhomes that cater to the high end market, like in James Bay or in the Rockland area, or Uplands Estates comes to mind, but the properties available are typically a bit older and in need of renovations.
