Pleasant Valley is one of Nanaimo's up and coming North End communities. Located off of the Nanaimo Parkway just south of Woodgrove Centre, residents can access either end of town with relative ease.
Up until the 1980s, Pleasant Valley was predominantly rural. Only in the last few decades have we seen significant development in the area. There are still some vacant lots up for grabs, including acreage properties.
Close to North End shopping and dining, and easy access to the Old Island Highway and Nanaimo Parkway makes this a great living option for commuters as well as families and retirees. Read more about Pleasant Valley real estate.
The living options in Pleasant Valley range from mobile home neighbourhoods to brand new residential subdivisions. Some of the most sought after Pleasant Valley homes for sale are located on Brennan Lake. Private boat access is one of the many benefits of living just steps from the water.
It should also be noted that some single-family neighbourhoods in Pleasant Valley are governed by an HOA, meaning monthly fees should be factored into your home purchase.
Good to know: Noise pollution can be an issue for some Pleasant Valley home owners, as traffic from the Nanaimo Parkway can be especially disruptive during peak hours. Make sure you inquire with your real estate agent to make sure you will not be adversely affected.
