Overview of Beckton Estates
Beckton Estates is one of two of the newest neighbourhoods in Comox. It is located in the Eastern part of Comox near the Comox Peninsula area and it is accessed via Lazo Road and Noel Avenue. Many of the homes were built in the the 2000s and later and there is some new construction as well. The area is popular with younger families as well as the military and RCMP. Single family homes dominate this area and split level, two storey and rancher style homes are fairly common. Many homes are located along Forester Avenue. Homes are also located on Potter Place, Gardener Way, Mason Avenue, Coach Place, and Painter Place.
Some homes are located along a bit of green space next to Lazo Road while others back on greenspace next to Butchers Road which parallels Forester Avenue but is located just outside the subdivision to the West. The are is fairly open and is exposed to the sun for most of the day. At the same time the area is protected from the wind and winter storms that can run up the Georgia Strait from the South and SouthEast. An added bonus is that it is a very short drive to the southern end of the Comox Peninsula and the spectacular views of the Georgia Strait and Coastal Mountains.
