DESCRIPTION
50 acres of paradise offering endless space, endless privacy, and endless opportunity!

Tucked away in the lush rainforest of beautiful mid-eastern Vancouver Island just north of Qualicum Beach you'll find this very special acreage that's currently being run as an organic farm and producing good revenue from crops such as veggies and apples.

Here you'll find a 3 Bed/2 Bath Main Home, a Double Garage with a 1 Bedroom Suite above for generating rental revenue, a partially-finished Cabin with a separate entry drive that could be an amazing Airbnb or additional rental Home, a Greenhouse and lots of room to grow crops, and several outbuildings including implement sheds and workshops, barns, a chicken coop, and a hay shed...all the infrastructure and fenced pastureland is in place for raising livestock.

This incredible acreage has achieved “Farm Status” while utilizing just 5 acres (approx) so there's a huge opportunity to dream big and drive the operation much higher with crops such as apples, veggies, eggs (chicken and duck), and berries! This is country living at it finest!

A gated entry invites you down a long driveway through towering forestland and leads to a 1786 sqft Family Home with a stylish gambrel roof and turret tower adding a touch of timeless European country charm!

A sunny extended deck welcomes you into the main level where you'll find all of your everyday living areas beginning with an open concept Living/Dining Room boasting a soaring two- storey overheight ceiling, handsome wood beams and window trim, lots of windows for brightness, and a river rock feature hosting an inviting woodstove...ready and waiting to provide radiant warmth and a cozy place to gather on those cooler island evenings.

French doors open to a huge greenhouse-style Sunroom, and adjacent you'll find a sizable Kitchen featuring a lovely bay window, easy- care tile flooring, lots of wood cabinetry, and great countertop space to prepare those farm-fresh feasts!

A hallway leads to a peaceful Master Suite complete with a large closet and 3 pc ensuite with a shower and an opening window, while a staircase leads to the bright upper level hosting 2 big Bedrooms and a 3 pc Bath with a soaker tub and nice tile work...great of space for your kids or perfect Guest Quarters for your out-of-town visitors. In addition stairs lead up once again to a stunning turret Tower Room, perfect for a quiet moment of “me-time”.

Off the Living Room is a door providing access to a breezeway that separates the Main Home from a superb 688 sqft Double Garage with its own 2 pc Bath and a staircase leading up to a self- contained 696 sqft Suite that could be used to generate rental income or to host individuals from around the world looking for first-hand organic farming/gardening experience under the WWOOF Canada program (WorldWide Opportunities on Organic Farms). The layout includes a bright Living Room area, a Kitchen with a fridge, stove and microwave, and Bedroom and a 4 pc Bath with a tub/shower combo.

A second long entry drive (448 Bayliss Rd) leads from the main roadway to a partially-finished 774 sqft 1 Bed/1 Bath Cabin on a crawl featuring a Wett certified woodstove, good insulation, 200 amp electrical service, and its own septic system...finish the home off and you'll have an awesome source of short or long-term rental income.

Among the various outbuildings you'll find a 960 sqft Barn with 4 stalls for sheep and goats plus a storage area above, a 245 sqft second Barn with an attached 515 sqft covered storage area, a woodshed that can accommodate up to 10 cord of wood, a 1200 sqft Shop with a loft, an additional Shop, a new chicken coop, a hay shed and implement sheds, a Greenhouse, and a Gazebo.

Zoned AG1 for various farm/agricultural uses as well as a home-based business and secondary suite, the spacious acreage offers an irrigation system to simplify the watering of the 3 acres of fenced- in gardens/orchards, 2 paddocks with water, lots of valuable second-growth timber, thousands of apple trees (multiple varieties), and the infrastructure is in place to raise cows, ducks, chickens, goats, lambs and sheep.

In addition there's underground electrical wiring supplying power to the acreage, an outdoor solar water shower, an artisan pond in the northwest sector, and a 20 GPM drilled well with a new pump that the seller reports has never run out of water!

The peaceful location offers all the serenity of rural living yet you're oh-so-close to all of your daily needs: a school bus stops at end of driveway, you're within minutes of the Arrowsmith Golf Course and the quaint boutique shops and services of Qualicum Beach, and easy highway access puts you within 35 minutes of the cities of Parksville, Nanaimo and Courtenay!

A great place to raise your family, a great place for sustainable organic farming, and a great place to make all of your country dreams come true!
