Old City Charm & Oceanview - A large 4,254 sqft flat lot that permits a new SFD w/suite, duplex or a 5,440 sqft multifamily building (R8 zoning). This home is 940 sqft main level entry with a walk-out basement (basement ceiling is 88”, the City requires at least 79” for a legal suite). This house is sold free from any confirmed asbestos. Besides its R8 zoning, the true value of this property is its prime location and historical charm being only two blocks from the Old City downtown core. Although not designated as a historical building, this property was owned in the 1880’s by John Hilbert, a furniture maker who was also mayor in 1891. This building is one of the earlier surviving examples of a miner’s cottage. It retains the basic form of a miner’s cottage with a side gable roof, extended back addition and front porch. New developments surround this home and this neighborhood is become one of the hippest in Nanaimo, all a while retaining its old-world charm. Offered ‘As-is, Where-is’
