DESCRIPTION
The idyllic charm of country living with all the conveniences of the city!

Situated in the sunny western section of the City of Nanaimo is the affluent rural community of “Benson Meadows Estates”, a prestigious area of estate-sized home-sites with a network of extensive parks and walking trails nearby as well as a superb location just a short drive from beautiful lakes and the endless shops and services of North Nanaimo.

Here you'll find a gated entry drive welcoming you onto an inspiring 5.02 acre property hosting an elegantly-finished 3277 sqft 4 Bed/3 Bath Executive Rancher, a fabulous 1065 sqft Guest House offering B&B potential, a huge detached Garage/Workshop, and a picture-perfect setting of wide open blue skies, emerald pastures, and rolling forested hills.

A walkway leads past lovely natural plantings to a covered porch with handsome stone pillars and a dormer window, inviting you into a wide tiled foyer with elegant decorative pillars and a stunning Great Room hosting the Kitchen, Living, and Dining areas.

The open and airy Living Room boasts an 11 ft overheight ceiling, gleaming hardwood flooring with comfy in-floor heating, and dual picture windows flanking a towering floor-to-ceiling K2-stone fireplace, waiting to bring the romantic warmth and crackling ambiance of a traditional wood-burning fire to those cooler island evenings while providing an attractive focal point where family photos and seasonal decorations can be displayed.

Wrapping around a large functional island with a prep sink is a well-planned Chefs Kitchen, sure to delight the family cook and boasting lots of warm birch cabinetry with cherry shaker doors, soapstone countertops, a 9 ft overheight ceiling, a stylish tiled backsplash, a breakfast bar, an indispensable walk-in pantry, and top-quality stainless steel appliances including a 6 burner propane stove with a commercial rooftop range exhaust fan.

Easy-care tile flooring flows into a lovely Dining Room with stylish crown molding, a picture window framing views of the serene acreage, and a french door leading out to a good-sized covered patio looking onto the gentle pastures, perfect for enjoying a pleasant afternoon with friends, a memorable outdoor dinner, or simply relax and savor the tranquillity and beautiful shades of natural green that surround you, you'll soon find yourself getting lost in the beauty of nature.

One side of the home hosts a 4 pc Main Bath with Corian countertops, a dual sink vanity, and a tub/shower combo, 2 good-sized Bedrooms both with large windows as well as the same transom-topped doorways, crown molding, and decorative window trim that you'll find in the spacious and light Master Suite boasting 3 walls of windows, tile flooring, a lighted ceiling fan, and a french door to leading out to the patio. In addition there's a sizable walk-in closet and a beautiful spa-inspired 4 pc ensuite sporting Corian countertops, a soaker tub, and a separate shower.

Tucked away on the opposite side of home is a huge Games Room featuring triple oversized windows plus a gracious Family Room adjacent also with oversized windows. In addition there's a Guest Bedroom with a walk-in closet, a 3 pc Main Bath with a pedestal sink and a shower, plus a large Laundry Room with lots of cupboards and Corian-topped counter space, a sink, and a handy built-in desk ideal for sewing, hobbies, arts and crafts.

An access door leads to a breezeway that separates the main house from a fabulous 1065 sqft 1 Bed/1 Bath self-contained Guest House ideal for in-laws, extended family situations, or superb accommodation for your visitors.

The spacious open plan includes a full Kitchen, a Living/Dining Room with a warming propane fireplace, large picture windows, and a french door leading out to its own separate patio, as well as a spacious Bedroom with dual closets and a 3 pc Bath with Corian countertops and an oversized handicapped-accessible shower. You'll love the fabulous extras including birch cabinetry with fir shaker doors, Corian countertops, 9 ft ceilings, in-floor heating, and much more.

Embraced by earth scents and the magic of the changing seasons, the picturesque acreage with its split-rail fencing is home to a huge detached and powered 1200 sqft overheight Garage/Workshop with triple door access and a storage area adjacent, a dog run sure to please the furry family member, plus a Garden House and a beautiful garden area.
