The Jingle Pot area has long been hailed as a rural escape in a growing Nanaimo real estate market. Located at the foothills of Mount Benson, the charming medley of farms, acreages and single-family homes appeals to a wide range of homebuyers.
Jingle Pot homes for sale are popular for their close proximity to outdoor recreation. Westwood Lake, Ammonite Falls, and a multitude of parkland makes this an ideal living option for outdoor enthusiasts.
The Jingle Pot real estate market has changed tremendously in the last 30 years. Up until the 1980s, the area was predominantly rural with very few paved roads. Today, higher-end suburban neighbourhoods are being developed at a rapid rate, often selling the moment they hit the market. The scenic views along with quick access to both Downtown and North End shopping makes this a highly desirable area. Rising property values reflect the demand for Jingle Pot homes for sale.
