Extension is deep with coal mine history, pretty, rural and almost completely hidden from lights of town. It’s accessible via Extension Rd, just south of Cinnabar Valley – about 15 min drive to downtown Nanaimo.

Homes in Extension present an opportunity for an inexpensive, larger building with an acreage lot. There are lots of farmhouses and converted miner’s cottages, as well as post-war homes. In the recent years there has been more demand and thus more lots have opened up for development on 2-50 or more acreage properties.

Many people choose Extension for its quiet lifestyle within close range of the city with nature at your backdoor including Nanaimo River, rock climbing, biking, and trails for all.

I’ve loved raising my children here…
