OLD CITY REAL ESTATE IN NANAIMO

Nanaimo’s Old City is the historic core of the city and site of the earliest habitation in the area. As the city grew up around the coal mines and logging industry and the docks that allowed these resources to be shipped, people migrated to Nanaimo and built homes for themselves. In keeping with its history, the neighborhood features many homes and areas that harken back to the city’s boomtown roots. Old City real estate features harbor views, character homes, and proximity to the hip, trendy boutique shops and cultural experiences that give the area its flavor and vibrancy.

OLD CITY HOMES & CONDOS FOR SALE

Nanaimo’s Old City offers an enticing mix of classic older homes and brand new ocean view condos. Even though the Old City homes for sale are situated on just over 20 square blocks, the variety on offer here makes it a highly desirable place for newcomers to the area to settle down. The broad tree-lined streets showcase gorgeous craftsman bungalows on smaller lots, and the overall atmosphere is welcoming and community focused.

Near the inner harbor, there are highly sought-after condo developments that overlook the beautiful marina. Alongside the water is a scenic seawall that stretches almost all the way to the ferry terminal and provides a great space for walking, biking, or fishing off the private pier. Spend enough time here and you may have an up-close encounter with a curious harbor seal.

LIFE AND CULTURE IN AN OLD CITY PROPERTY

Nanaimo’s Old City forms the cultural core of the city as much as the geographical one. The Old City area is home to numerous live music venues including the Vancouver Island Conference Center and the Port Theatre.  Live Music and spring/summer festivals offer a variety of exciting entertainment options.  Historic structures like the famous Nanaimo Bastion add to the sense of place and antiquity that underlies the buzzing energy of a modern metropolitan downtown core.

Small ferries and water taxis give quick access to Newcastle, Protection or Gabriola islands, all locations that are perfect for a day spent exploring parks and quaint craft and artisan stores that the Gulf Islands are known for. In the other direction, you’re just a short drive out of town from the scenic Nanaimo lakes and hiking on Mount Benson, where breathtaking panoramic views of the Georgia Strait are your reward for your effort.  Life in your own piece of Old City real estate will always be filled with possibility.
