Chase River Real Estate
Located in one of Nanaimo's southernmost communities, Chase River homes for sale begin just below Chase River Estuary Park, extending southwest towards Cinnabar Valley and Extension. Similar to its northern neighbours, this community's beginnings are steeped in the mining culture that brought Nanaimo to life. Because of an agricultural focus around the turn of the century, Chase River was divided into larger lots, and today homes are available with large yards and a more rural feel.

A Fascinating History
Chase River has an unusual namesake, given in the 1850s after a man was chased down the banks of the river by the local authorities.
The area had already been settled by local miners, working at the New Douglas Mine, which ran well into the next century. The farmhouses that stood ground in Chase River remain part of its present day atmosphere.
