Historic Homes of Harewood
Tucked in the University District of South Nanaimo is the community of Harewood. Homes for sale in this desirable neighborhood are, in large part, 1920s style bungalows. Over the years, an increase in attendance at Vancouver Island University has bolstered new construction to the region, and Harewood is now home to new developments, such as single-family homes, condos, and townhomes. Heritage properties can also be found, in rarer instances, on the real estate market.
