Heritage Homes for Sale

For buyers who love "character homes", Nanaimo offers huge opportunities. A lot of old-growth forest was being harvested and processed when these homes were being built, which means that the highest-quality lumber was available. The result is that old homes in Nanaimo were built with good materials - and with the builders' costs being low, they were able to invest in other areas of the construction, such as interior features and grand porches. See below for my curated list of character homes currently for sale.

If you're selling your old home in the Nanaimo area, I'd love to help you get the price your home deserves. My home was built in 1912 and I can't imagine selling it to a buyer who doesn't appreciate its unique qualities! If you want my help, please contact me.

A final note - some of the homes below have only a degree of original features remaining. I've included those anyway!
