North Nanaimo

North Nanaimo

Real Estate

North Nanaimo is one of Nanaimo’s newest areas with most homes being less than 20 years old. Recent developments have sprung up and the area is quite expansive with lots of cul-du-sac streets and parks, making it a family friendly neighbourhood. Some developments run along oceanfront properties, but even homes without this perk are usually within walking distance to the ocean! The area is spread out, so homeowners don’t have immediate access to Central Nanaimo, but that means the area is generally quiet. Buyers looking for a newer home with young children should have a keen interest in North Nanaimo.

Community

Tucked away from the Old Island Highway, residents in North Nanaimo have access to several shops including, Costco, Canadian Tire, Cabelas, Woodgrove Centre, and Home Depot. If shopping isn’t your thing, there are numerous restaurants such as, The Longwood Brew Pub, a local eatery with great refreshments and a fantastic outdoor patio. If you’re looking for finer dining, The Hilltop Bistro has a reputation for serving delectable local cuisine in a memorable dining atmosphere. Homeowners in North Nanaimo are able to enjoy lots of outdoor time, as the area follows the ocean.
