Brechin Hill Overview

Just minutes from the city’s amenities, Brechin Hill homes for sale 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.

Bechin Hill Lifestyle

Newcastle Island, a secluded green area ideal for kayaking, biking, and exploring, is just across the water from downtown Nanaimo. Its rolling hills serve as a backdrop for each vantage point on Brechin Hill. The Brechin Hill Boat launch off Stewart Avenue serves as a jumping off point for explorations of the channel, islands, and the nearby Departure Bay.

Other community favourites include Beach Estates Park (which features a creek that runs down to the waterfront), Barney Moriez Park (loved by local kids for its large slides), and the sea wall, located on the southern edges. Brechin Hill residents are also close to the marina, and the pubs, coffee shops, and restaurants along the water.
