|This rare private estate property is truly a
celebration of class and style, and represents
Vancouver Island living at its very best!
This grand and stately 5918 sqft 4 Bed/6 Bath
architecturally designed home on an impeccably
manicured 1.41 acres is perfectly located in the
heart of the most beautiful and sought-after
town on the eastern shores of the Island,
You'll experience a feeling of peace and serenity the moment you enter this spectacular private estate from either the gated foot entrance or brick-pillared entry drive, both of which welcome you into an enchanting setting of mature trees, smooth lawns, beautiful rhodos and natural plantings.
Resting perfectly in this picturesque scene is a larger-than-life Country Estate-Style Home, upgraded and completely renovated to luxurious standards in the late 90’s and featuring an intriguing floor plan of spacious places and intimate spaces.
An extended patio with a covered sitting area looks onto the inspiring grounds, and invites you into a spacious foyer with an over-height tray ceiling. Immediately you'll notice the timeless architectural features and high quality of finishing: the soft, contemporary color scheme, the gleaming fir flooring, and the first of many stylish art nooks that complement the decor of the home.
All day-to-day living areas rest on the main level beginning with a stunning Living Room sporting distinguished natural woodwork and design that can be appreciated from all angles. A dramatic coffered ceiling with a central skylight provides soft natural light from the Outlook Tower Room above, while three walls of windows give the impression that you are sitting outdoors. The extended window seat suggests a tranquil moment of reflection, a peaceful spot to read a good book, or a solitary place to admire the deep, pastel colors of sunset.
A French door leads out to a cozy courtyard area, while a traditional red brick wood-burning fireplace with a natural gas starter offers cheerful warmth and crackling ambiance to the Family Room with handsome California Plantation Shutters that you'll also find in many other rooms.
The Formal Dining Room is sure to impress your dinner guests with its ceiling vault, lighted niche and refurbished original chandelier, while adjacent is an incomparable Custom Chefs Kitchen boasting shaker-style maple cabinetry, gleaming granite countertops with a breakfast bar, a prep sink, built-in top quality stainless-steel appliances including a wall oven and microwave, in addition to a functional island with a 5- burner gas cooktop and stainless-steel surface. The eating nook offers maple wood cabinetry, granite counter space and French doors that lead out to a sizable brick patio with lovely raised gardens and steps leading onto the beautifully manicured yard.
From the foyer, a hallway with built-in shelving leads to a peaceful Master Suite with a romantic natural gas fireplace, a pillared tray ceiling with a barrel vault over the bed, triple closets, a wall of windows looking onto the gardens, and a concrete ceiling ensuring your peace and quiet. The sumptuous 7 piece sky lighted spa en-suite could easily belong in the most luxurious of hotels and boasts shaker-style maple cabinetry, a dual-sink granite vanity, an inviting soaker tub and separate shower, as well a 3 pc water closet including a bidet.
Completing the main level: A Laundry Room with cupboards, a sink and access to the front patio, a 2 pc Powder Room with a pedestal sink, and a door leading to an attached double garage.
A skylighted staircase with an over height vaulted ceiling welcomes you to the upper level where you'll find 2 large Bedrooms sharing “Jack & Jill” access to a 4 pc Upper Bath, a third Bedroom, plus a 3 pc Bath with a pedestal sink and a claw foot soaker tub. French doors nearby open to a cozy glass-railed covered balcony with views overlooking the grounds and a sunset ocean glimpse, while the Den sports a full wet bar with cabinetry, a sink, a fridge and microwave.
A breezeway leads to an inspiring Outlook Tower Room boasting three walls of glass, a stunning wood beam ceiling crowned with a skylight, an amazing built-in glass topped table that looks down onto the Living Room below, and a secondary staircase with a massive picture window allowing an abundance of incredible nature light to flood in. From the Outlook Tower Room you’ll be mesmerized by the ever changing ocean views and sunsets, another space in this stately home you won’t want to leave.
The finished lower level features a French door leading into to a large Rec Room with built-in shelving and cabinetry, a 3 pc Bath with a shower, and a Sewing Room with great countertop space that would be perfect for all hobbies and crafts.
The superb additions and upgrades done in 1999 include the roof, Kitchen, Master Bedroom, en- suite, flooring and fixtures, while the weekend tinkerer or car enthusiast is sure to appreciate the superb 1350 sqft detached and powered Garage/Shop with 3 bays, one with an over height door for your RV or boat.
The location is simply unbeatable! It's a short walk to the Qualicum Beach Memorial Golf Course, the lovely boardwalk and sandy beach, as well as the Village Center where you'll find many charming Euro-inspired shops, services and restaurants.
