Brechin Hill is known for its many character homes in one of the older parts of the city; north of the Old City Quarter, it is considered one of Nanaimo’s most “artistic” neighbourhoods. This area has a mix of homes with large lots with the majority of the houses on the hill uniquely designed to take advantage of the spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and Newcastle Island Marine Provincial Park. Although the area dates as far back as the Old City Quarter, many of the homes have been modernized, with the exception of some homes keeping their original look. In addition to the views, its close proximity to Nanaimo’s downtown core and all of its amenities is part of the neighbourhood’s appeal. Between the Island Highway and Estevan Road there are a variety of shops and the Nanaimo Golf Club is only minutes away.
