|Opportunity knocks very loudly!
Nestled on a gentle hillside overlooking the Bay of Nanoose you'll find this bright and charming 2 Bed/1 Bath Pan Abode Cedar Home with an unfinished lower level on almost half-an-acre boasting stunning views reaching across the ocean to the picturesque forested hills surrounding...ready and waiting to begin its next chapter!
This wheelchair accessible home offers so many options and possibilities: move in and enjoy the rustic country feel and beautiful views while planning your updates and additions, or purchase with your siblings and use it as a cozy vacation getaway or family holiday home, or rent it out as a revenue generator until you're ready to start building your ultimate dream home!
From a no-thru-road, a driveway leads to a large parking area and a courtyard area graced with full-on southern exposure. Some landscaping has been done including a central garden feature, but the majority of the yard awaits your creative touch...add a huge sun-soaked patio or entertainers deck, perhaps a rock garden and a water feature, that small corner area would be perfect for a gazebo, add some perimeter hedging along the raised fence that guards your privacy even more...whatever you can imagine, there's space for it here!
From the parking area, a wheelchair-friendly ramp and a nice arbored walkway with translucent roof panels invites you into the heart of this special home: a huge Great Room hosting the Kitchen, Living and Dining Rooms and featuring an airy overheight cathedral ceiling with exposed wooden beams, a generous use of glass to maximize the stunning views, and two huge skylights bathing the room in soft natural light.
The sizable Living Room comes complete with a woodstove that's ready and waiting to warm those cooler evenings, as well as a lighted ceiling fan to circulate the heat throughout the home or keep you nice and cool in the summertime.
Adjacent is a Kitchen with a stainless steel fridge and stove, space for your dining table, and a sliding glass door leading out to a large deck that wraps around the home and offers a delightful panorama of views encompassing the evergreen forest, the ocean, and the rolling forested hills of Nanoose...sure to be your favorite place to relax on a sunny afternoon while enjoying ever-changing views of passing boaters, kayakers, birds and marine life, and the brilliant pastel colours of the setting sun!
The deck extends around the west side of the home where you'll find secondary access to the Living Room as well as a staircase leading down to a 784 sqft unfinished lower level offering lots of storage space, while tucked away off the Living Room is a good-sized Bedroom with a ceiling vault, and a hallway hosting a 4 pc Bath with a double-basin vanity top and tub/shower combo, a Utility/Laundry Room with hook-ups for a washer and dryer, and a cozy Second Bedroom also with a ceiling vault.
Zoned RS-1, the partly-treed .49 acre lot has a handy storage shed off the main parking area and offers the potential to expand the ocean views even further by trimming back the trees on the lower section of your property!
Best of all, the fabulous location offers easy access to all of your daily needs and so much more! Nearby you'll find splendid hiking trails at Notch Hill with beautiful views from the summit, you're within 10 minutes of Schooner Cove Marina as well as Fairwinds Golf Course and an extensive trail system, and it's a short drive to Parksville, Qualicum Beach and North Nanaimo for shopping and all amenities.
