Real Estate

Uplands is a well-established area of Nanaimo, with most homes dating back to the 70’s or 90’s. The area offers privacy and larger lot sizes to homeowners, as most homes are surrounded by trees or other landscapes. Long Lake Heights Estates is a subdivision built off Long Lake and offers beautiful lake front or lake view homes. The lakefront homes have private access to Long lake, while the lake view homes are not far from access trails to the lake. Uplands is full of hills, so even if you don’t live in Long Lake Heights Estates there are still many homes with spectacular views of the lake. If you’re looking for something smaller and with less maintenance, there are also a few condos around the area and neighbouring communities.


Residents in Uplands enjoy their biggest amenity, Long Lake, all year round! It’s the perfect space for kayaking, paddle boarding, canoeing, and boating. In the warmer months, it’s one of Nanaimo’s most popular swimming spots. Nanaimo North Town centre is only a few minutes away, which includes Fairway Market, Galaxy Cinemas, Fit 4 Less, Lowes, and a few more shops inside. Located centrally, Uplands is only about a 15-minute drive to the Downtown area via the Old Island Highway.
