Hawthorne is an attractive neighbourhood just west of downtown Nanaimo, a couple blocks north of VIU. Jump to listings.
It's comprised mainly of mid-2000s single family homes (about 140), plus "Hawthorne Corner", a set of townhomes and lofts on the corner of Wakesiah Ave and Jinglepot Rd.
There's a newer phase of homes under construction in the northern part of Hawthorne. As part of this, there are plans for another multi-unit property (Menzies Townhouses at 497 Menzies Ridge Dr) - these homes will overlook Buttertubs Marsh and Mt Benson and will be in very high demand.
The location is incredible for families - there is a high school, aquatic center, ice rinks, ball fields and the university within walking distance, plus it's a very short drive to downtown, the Parkway, and the mountain trails.
