Oak Bluff

Your dream home might not necessarily be within the Winnipeg City limits. For those hunters who are interested in calling Rural Winnipeg home, Oak Bluff is the perfect spot to put down roots. If you are ready to really embrace the beauty of the prairies, consider Oak Bluff for large lots, tons of green space, bike and hiking trails and scenic lakes. 

For those Winnipeggers who are looking for a bit of rural charm but with access to nearby amenities, looking just outside the city provides both. The Oak Bluff community is the perfect blend of accessibility and rural atmosphere. The first homes in Oak Bluff were constructed in the 1980’s/1990’s but has since been updated with the newly constructed Oak Bluff West. Living in Oak Bluff means stepping back in time to a small town atmosphere without having to sacrifice the arts, culture, nightlife and industry that a city has to offer. 

Buying a House in Oak Bluff: Market Trends & Housing Options

This community features unattached homes almost exclusively, often boasting larger lot sizes and a high rate of square footage. If you are looking to create your ideal outdoor space or even add a swimming pool, larger pieces of land are the best option to stretch creative muscles. 

A rural space is the ideal option when you are in the market for multi-generational housing or for those looking for additional space for creative projects, studios or housing inventory/equipment. 

One of the major advantages to calling this community home is the easy access to Kenaston and McGillvray areas. The Perimeter Highway provides access to a bustling city centre with tons of amenities ranging from restaurants, retail and services. All it takes is a 15 minute drive to access top eateries in the city, as well as breweries, nightlife, theatres and nature parks. 

While Oak Bluff real estate comes with a higher price tag than other areas that are centrally located in Winnipeg, it comes with charm, size, and higher square footage. As is common with rural communities in Manitoba the crime rate in Oak Bluff is lower than the average of most Winnipeg areas, as well as 16% lower than other major rural centres like Brandon.
