For those buyers looking for something a bit more unique, Hammond Bay is perhaps one of the most desirable of options in Nanaimo. Many of the homes here sit along the shoreline of the bay, which is a rather small bay but with calm, beautifully clear water. The homes range widely in age and style with some being very new while others are older homes dating from the founding of the area in the 1800's. Still, real estate options in Hammond Bay can be both affordable and picturesque depending on where you purchase.
One of the most notable of the benefits this community can offer is the views. From some of the homes here, you can see out over the coastal mountains and into the Pacific Ocean, creating dramatic views from bedroom windows throughout the community. The natural beauty of this area is everywhere including at Neck Point and Pipers Lagoon. Both of these waterfront areas are a good place to relax but also give you some access to windsurfing and hiking.
However, Hammond Bay is not very rural and it still gives residents access to many of the amenities they desire throughout the region. Within about a 5 to 7 minute drive, you are close to Woodgrove Mall and many of the large commercial chains you are looking for in grocery, home improvement stores, and much more. Students will be able to attend Frank Ney Elementary or Rutherford Elementary which are a part of either Dover High School or Wellington High School.
The homes here range significantly both in style and price. You will find homes under $400,000 and those well above this amount. Some luxurious properties here take full advantage of those views. Many of the homes are under 30 years old and have larger lots with forested areas. Newer developments are in this area, too, though the heart of the neighbourhood maintains a village feel. Finding a treasure of a home is quite possible here, especially if you are looking for something that will stand out and still provide both affordability and beautiful views.
