|Prestigious Madrona Point Waterfront!
Walk a few steps to a sandstone beach and launch your kayak for a day of exploring the beautiful mid- eastern coastline of Vancouver Island, spend a care-free afternoon on your huge Entertainer’s Deck while the fresh ocean breezes and the sound of the waves lapping on the shoreline soothe your soul, or simply relax at home and enjoy stunning world-class views that span across Northwest Bay to the Beachcomber Peninsula, and reach beyond Mistaken Island and across the Strait of Georgia with a backdrop of the snow-capped mainland mountains. Here's an unbeatable opportunity for the discerning buyer to live the island dream!
Tucked away on the Madrona Peninsula just minutes from Parksville you’ll find a lovely park-like entry drive leading past tall trees and introducing you to this 4256 sqft 4 Bed/3 Bed Westcoast Contemporary Home on a beautifully landscaped and very private .47 acre. This picturesque waterfront oasis features a bright and spacious layout with lots of room for your family and your out-of-town guests, an amazing 1494 sqft of sun-soaked deck and patio space, lots of great extras, a triple-bay garage and a sizable parking pad, as well as a generous use of glass perfectly positioned to offer enchanting views from all main living areas!
You’re greeted by an entry courtyard with a garden patio boasting sunny southwestern exposure, while double front doors (with coloured glass sidelights) open to welcome you into a wide foyer with a ceramic tile inlay. From the foyer, rich oak flooring flows into a sizable Formal Living Room boasting a soaring overheight cathedral ceiling and multiple picture windows with large clerestories showcasing the stunning ocean and island views.
The fabulous views continue into the adjacent Family Room where you’ll find an inviting natural gas fireplace waiting to add a touch of ambience to those cooler evenings and a wet bar with a sink, lots of built-in oak cabinetry, and an indispensable wine fridge.
The family chef can enjoy the same inspiring views while preparing meals in the bright and sunny Deluxe Kitchen where you’ll find ample cabinetry and maple countertop workspace, ceramic tile flooring, recessed lighting, a walk-in pantry, a solarium-style bay window to grow your own fresh herbs, a functional island with a prep sink and cooktop, a lighted alcove with a computer/phone desk, as well as a built- in wall oven and a fridge with a paneled door.
The breakfast bar is handy for those quick snacks, and the Nook with its wonderful panorama of picture windows is perfect for your everyday meals, but on those warm summer days you’re sure to step out to the huge glass- railed Entertainer’s Deck for some romantic al fresco dining. You’ll love the incomparable 180 degree panoramic views that encompass Beachcomber and Cottam Point on the right, Lasqueti and Texada Islands to the left, and that reach beyond Mistaken Island and the Ballenas Island group across the timeless Strait of Georgia all the way to Halfmoon Bay and the majestic snow-capped mainland mountains! Redone 5-6 years ago, this sizable composite deck wraps around one side of the home and offers a delightful covered area with four skylights for all-weather enjoyment.
When company comes to visit, you can impress your guests with a fancy sit-down dinner in the formal Dining Room offering an overheight vaulted ceiling, plenty of room for your favourite dining set, a stylish built-in china cabinet, plus elegant coloured glass windows book-ending an alcove for your hutch.
Off the foyer you’ll find your very own private sanctuary: a huge oceanview Master Suite featuring french door access to the back deck, a skylighted walk-thru hosting His/Her closets plus additional mirrored closets, as well as a skylighted 5 pc spa ensuite with dual vanities (one with a make-up area), a tub, and a recently redone walk-in shower with dual hand- held and rain shower faucets. In addition there’s an Office/Bedroom and a fabulous Studio Room with an inviting hot tub, a door to the front garden patio, dual skylights, and windows on three walls for brightness.
Tucked away off the Kitchen on the other side of the home is a hallway hosting a 3 pc Main Bath with a glass shower, a door that accesses the entry courtyard, a large Laundry Room offering a generous amount of cupboards, a sink, a countertop for folding, space for a freezer if desired, plus a “Miele” front load washer and dryer.
In addition there’s a door that leads to the first bay of an amazing Triple Garage with three individual bays offering room for your everyday vehicle, your fancy weekend special and your boat, a separate electrical panel for 440 amp service, as well as a door to a Workshop (with a door to a cozy deck) that’s perfect for the home handyperson or ideal for your crafts.
Nearby is a stairway leading to the 1154 sqft upper level where you’ll find a large Third Bedroom with dual walk-in closets and beautiful views, a 4 pc Bath with a tub/shower combo, a lovely Fourth Bedroom with picture windows, as well as the piece de resistance: a spacious Bonus Room with three walls of windows capturing those charming views plus a billiard table and a wet bar with cupboards and a sink...the ultimate man-cave!
Access to the beach couldn’t be easier....a stepping stone pathway winds past gardens of natural plantings to a staircase that leads down to the beach for an afternoon of beachcombing or visit at low tide and you’ll find tiny sea creatures temporarily trapped in the tidal pools!
Among the many extras you’ll find a security system, a built-in vacuum, dual septic tanks, a sprinkler system covering the front and back of the home, a replaced roof (2017) with heavy- duty lifetime shingles, a “Carrier” heat pump and an electric forced air furnace, 440 amp electrical (more than double what you find in most homes), and two hot water tanks - one 40 gallon and one 60 gallon. The delightful home is wired for a generator (that could be included in the sale), there are four separate attic accesses as well as a variable height concrete crawl space, glazed thermal windows that allow views inside yet you cannot see in from the outside, and part-time neighbours on both sides increase the feeling of privacy and seclusion!
Add to this an enviable location on the exclusive Madrona Peninsula just a short stroll away from Pacific Shores Nature Resort with its restaurant and manicured walking trails, within minutes of Springford Farm and Nanoose Edibles for fresh local meat and produce, and the Rocking Horse Pub for traditional English pub food and live music. It’s a short drive to the Beachcomber Marina, the Red Gap shopping plaza for groceries, both levels of schooling, many great golf courses, as well as downtown Parksville and Qualicum Beach for shopping and all amenities, plus you’re only 20 minutes away from North Nanaimo's huge shopping district! Exquisite views, tons of privacy, a superb location, and lots of great extras...this unforgettable home offers it all!
