On one side of the highway is the larger part of the Ladysmith real estate market: on these western edges sits the main downtown core, along with many established communities and new subdivisions. On the other side are the waterfront properties. Thanks to a large slope, many of the homes for sale on either side of Ladysmith boast ocean views.
Ladysmith is a great choice for buyers on the hunt for Vancouver Island waterfront properties. Yellowpoint is just south of Cedar, but quite close to the Ladysmith borders. As such, it’s not uncommon to see homes in the area listed under the Ladysmith umbrella. Look to Yellowpoint for large tracts of land and waterfront access.
