Hammond Bay real estate stretches along a coastal road, which winds from North Nanaimo all the way to Departure Bay. Hammond Bay homes for sale are one often Nanaimo's most sought after properties, and when you take one good look at the homes here, you'll understand why. In the Stephenson Point area of Hammond Bay, homes here overlook the channel leading into Departure Bay, and have views out across the Straight of Georgia as well as New Castle Island. Up into Oakridge Estates, you will find views spanning from Mt. Benson, across the bay and out to the straight, allowing you to enjoy both sunrises and sunsets. Development in the Gulfview area encompasses Sheridan Ridge and Laguna Way, with homes facing out towards the ocean and coastal mountains. If you ask any of the best Nanaimo real estate agents they will admit that Hammond Bay has some of the most scenic properties in the city. The homes in this popular area are also noticeably upscale, ranging in size and price depending on the location. There is an eclectic mix of homes available dating from the 70s to brand new homes. You can also find a number of fully custom homes, as well as million dollar homes with unobstructed views of the ocean.
