Brechin Hill is an older area that use to be the more “affluent” area of Nanaimo back in the 1950’s and 60’s. This area is seeing a lot of transformation as people are buying some of these classic homes and remodelling. Many of these homes have excellent bones to create a “West Coast Contemporary”. The location is excellent and many of the homes offer views of Departure Bay and Newcastle Channel. The area boasts great access to the Seawall where you can walk to downtown and many marinas are located along Stewart. There is also a boat launch available at the base of Brechin Rd by Alberni Outpost.
