|Timeless views, timeless luxury! Enjoy commanding views of the Georgia Strait, mid Gulf Islands and the towering peaks of the distant coastal mountain range from this distinguished and elegant 4098 sqft 3 Bed/3 Bath Custom High-Bank Waterfront Home on a fully fenced .55 acre boasting classic architectural features and finishing, a fully finished walk-out lower level and a choice location in the heart of Lighthouse Country on the sun-soaked shores of Vancouver Island.
A powered entry gate opens to reveal a lovely setting: a manicured emerald lawn with a charming fountain, beautiful landscaping and a glimpse of the ocean that only hints at what awaits you inside.
A covered front patio with four skylights offers sunny southern exposure, while a spacious grand foyer wraps around an attractive oak double staircase. Immediately you'll be struck by the superb ocean views perfectly captured by a wall of windows in the expansive open plan Kitchen/Living Room.
Rich oak hardwood flooring graces the peaceful Living Room featuring an airy overheight ceiling, crown molding, a custom Italian light fixture and oceanview picture windows book-ending an Italian tile-faced gas fireplace with a perfectly-scaled mirror above.
A sliding glass door leads out to a huge glass-railed balcony with “Duradeck” finish and spellbinding views reaching over the nicely landscaped and very private backyard out to Hornby and Denman Islands and the picturesque Strait of Georgia. You're sure to spend many carefree mornings and sunny afternoons relaxing and being entertained by birds soaring overhead, seals, otters and marine life playing, and boaters passing by. Afterward you'll light the propane barbecue (included) and enjoy a memorable outdoor dinner while watching the cruise ships passing, the Chrome Island Lighthouse, and the ever-changing colors of dusk. It's the perfect day in paradise!
The same stunning views can be enjoyed by the family chef from the huge Gourmet Dream Kitchen boasting dual skylights, sumptuous granite countertops, lots of oak cabinetry and a large tiered functional island sporting a “Dacor” gas cooktop, built-in wine rack and a breakfast bar with 4 stools (included). The quality stainless steel appliances include “Kitchen Aid” double ovens (new in the last 5 years), a side-by-side “LG” Fridge with ice (2015) and an “Asko” Dishwasher just a few years old.
The adjacent Formal Dining Room is perfect for those special occasions and features elegant leaded french double doors, picture windows, lots of room for your china cabinetry and stylish decorative molding around the chandelier.
The stunning ocean view Master Suite is an oasis of tranquility with its romantic gas fireplace, double crown molding, generously-sized walk-in closet, sliding glass doors to the balcony, as well as a lavish 4 pc spa ensuite with dual skylights, a soaker tub and a separate shower. Completing the main level: a generously-sized 2 pc Powder Room and access to a 2-bay Garage with lots of shelving, a work bench and a built-in vacuum system.
An exquisite double staircase leads down to a finished lower level where you'll find a spacious Family Room with beautiful wood accents, a built-in entertainment cabinet and a delightful woodstove with a floor-to-ceiling rock feature created with stones right from the beach! A door leads out to a huge covered brick patio with fabulous ocean views and wiring in place for a hot tub, that can also be accessed by sliding glass doors from a Rec Room boasting a handsome coffered ceiling, a pool table and an entertainers bar with a sink.
Graceful french leaded double doors open from the Family Room to a beautiful Office/Library with a tray ceiling, patio access, and rich dark wood cabinetry, shelving and a built-in desk. The lower level is completed by 2 good-sized Bedrooms including one with exterior access and a cheater ensuite door to a large 3 pc Bath, as well as a sizable Laundry Room with storage cabinets, a sink and an adjacent Wine Room.
Fully loaded with all the custom extras you'd expect from a home of this caliber including underground sprinklers, custom high-end light fixtures, dual propane tanks, an economical HRV System, custom blinds and window coverings, RV parking, and a large wood/storage shed with a smaller shed attached.
Add to this a great location just steps away from Moss Park, minutes from Nile Creek and the quaint hamlets of Bowser and Deep Bay for shopping, amenities and a marina, plus the charming shops of Qualicum Beach and the Comox Valley are only a short drive away.
Without seeing this property, it's impossible to truly appreciate the beauty and timelessness offered here. This incredible home awaits your admiration!
