This area served as the home to the majority of dignitaries in the beginning of Nanaimo’s history. With its era of occupation, Brechin Hill has many Old World homes to choose from that are both vintage and modernized – you decide what era you want to live in. With beautiful Newcastle Island Marine Provincial Park within most properties’ eyesight, this area is a niche market. If you are a boater or love the water, you will love this area as it hosts the marinas and the boardwalk to Maffeo Sutton Park. Most days you will see the sea planes landing and the regular marine traffic moving about amongst the marine wildlife. It is truly a remarkable area to live, rich with history and beauty. There are many new and upcoming developments happening here so it is an area to keep a close eye on as the city of Nanaimo continues to grow.
