Just minutes from the city’s amenities, homes for sale in Brechin Hill are the complementary blend of sprawling ocean views and inner-city living. It’s one of Nanaimo's oldest communities, originally home to miners employed at the Brechin Mine. Since those days, the neighbourhood has grown to include many types of residences. The heritage homes in particular have seen outstanding renovations over the years, and with a trend in new condo development, the area continues to appeal to many buyers.
