The Gales in LadysmithDo you ever wonder why people choose to buy a home where they do? Sometimes the reasoning is obvious - stunning new homes with ocean views in a friendly Vancouver Island town make The Gales in Ladysmith an easy choice. 

These residents shared with 1stView why they picked The Gales.

"Our visitors tell us we have a “Million Dollar View” and we agree. The hilltop terrace design gives us a beautiful panoramic view overlooking Ladysmith Harbour and the nearby islands, with the scenic Coastal Mountains in the background.

"We never tire of watching the world go by from our bedroom, kitchen, dining or living room windows. You never know what you may see from resident eagles, to killer whales visiting the harbour. All of these scenes are beautifully framed in large picture windows in rooms with soaring ceilings. The skylight in the kitchen adds to the bright open atmosphere in a great layout.

"There is so much to do in our small town, and on the island. We are also within a short commuting distance of two major city centres. We feel very lucky to call this wonderful place home."
