Shawnigan Lake Real Estate

From bungalows to multi-story homes, Shawnigan Lake properties embody the tranquil, cottage-style look and feel that so many desire. Older homes in this area tend to be single-story, built in traditional styles with the popular vinyl siding. These properties also tend to be priced a bit lower, for they sometimes require some updating. However, many of the homes for sale in this village are luxury homes, sought-after for their generous square footage and property sizes, modern upgrades, and great locations.

The residential areas in the village center offer quiet streets and friendly neighbours. Larger homes with substantial acreage (often hidden within the trees) are found further away from the community and all around the lake.
