Cedar Real Estate

Cedar Bridge, Nanaimo River swimmersCedar is almost as large as the rest of Nanaimo combined (see the map at the bottom of this page). It's mostly-rural, wide and relatively flat, laying between the highway and the ocean. It's a very "undiscovered" region, with wide open spaces and large recreation areas, including seaside parks and trail systems.

Most properties in Cedar have septic systems and wells, though some do have municipal water - especially near to the "downtown" commercial district on Cedar Rd where you'll find the old Wheatsheaf Pub and the 49th Parallel Grocery.

It should be noted that there is a small neighbourhood called "Cedar by the Sea" at the end of Barnes Rd, overlooking a beautiful oceanscape and islands. It also has municipal water in places. This is where the early 20th-century cult leader Brother XII had his land (also on the nearby islands). 

Some parts of Cedar are affected by proximity to the big regional landfill, or to the pulp and paper mill (HARMAC) and other industrial properties in the Duke Point area. Most of these are only rarely an issue, depending on the winds, as long as you don't live too close. Something to be aware of!

Highlights of Cedar real estate:

  • Properties backing onto Nanaimo River or near the ocean
  • Equestrian, ranch, and farm properties
  • Many large lots & acreages - some of these are quite affordable because they have manufactured homes on them. Zoning in most of the area prevents subdivision.
  • 10-20 minutes from Duke Point, downtown Nanaimo, or VIU

Cedar BC locations map

Yellow Point Area

I should make quick mention of the Yellow Point area which may arguably be said to be a part of Cedar. It's over the district line in the Cowichan Valley Regional District, but otherwise it's very similar to the rest of Cedar, except even more rural. It's a beautiful area with lots of ridges and little lakes and rolling meadows. Tons of privacy!
