This captivating home comes complete with two Full Oceanview Suites (one on each level), a large oceanview deck on each level plus a private sitting area with southwestern exposure for your choice of sun or shade, separate Den and Office areas, a staircase that leads down to a beautiful lava rock beach where you can launch your kayak, and a great location on Nanoose Bay's premier seaside route, Dolphin Drive, adjacent to the luxurious Fairwinds Golf and Resort Community and only a short drive to Parksville and North Nanaimo for shopping and amenities.
An entry drive bordered by lovely natural plantings welcomes you to this captivating home, completely refurbished in 2003 with additions, modernization, and updates! A french door flanked by stylish glass brickwork invites you into a wide tiled foyer with a handsome rock feature wall, while gorgeous wood flooring flows into a light and bright Living/Dining Room with a wall of picture windows framing commanding views of the sea, a charming indoor rock garden, and a rock-faced natural gas fireplace with a rustic wood mantle for that special touch of ambiance.
You’ll find lots of solid wood cabinetry in the Custom Chef's Kitchen featuring a four-burner natural gas cooktop, double wall ovens, a wine/beverage cooler, a prep sink, a pantry closet, a handy built-in computer desk, and a large breakfast bar that wraps around to a fabulous Wet Bar area...the entertaining hub of the home with its own beverage fridge and sink!
Open the french door and let your gatherings spill out onto a sizable glass-railed Entertainer’s Deck, partly covered for all- weather enjoyment and offering lots of space for your outdoor furniture and barbecue, as well as inspiring panoramic views that reach over Dolphin Beach, beyond several Gulf Islands, and across the Strait of Georgia all the way to Halfmoon Bay and the snow-capped mainland mountains beyond!
Here you’ll enjoy many peaceful mornings accompanied only by the fresh ocean breeze and the crying of seagulls, lazy afternoons of relaxation watching eagles soaring overhead and vessels coming-and-going from the marina, and romantic al fresco twilight dinners while the setting sun casts soft pastel colours across the landscape...simply superb!
The deck can also be accessed by doors in both the bright Office as well as the huge main- level Primary Bedroom Suite where you’ll find a 5 pc spa-inspired ensuite with a dual sink vanity, custom tile work, a soaker tub, and a separate shower. Before you drift off to sleep in the evening, open the sliding glass door and you’ll wake up to the memorizing sound of the morning waves lapping on the shoreline!
Completing the main level is a spacious 2 pc Powder Room with a decorative wall-mount sink and a big storage closet, a delightful Den that could serve as a Formal Dining Room if desired, and a staircase that leads to the 1625 sqft upper level of the home.
The layout includes a large Family Room sporting a wall of oceanview picture windows, a beautiful floor-to-ceiling rock feature hosting a second natural gas fireplace, an amazing Beverage Center with a sink and a bar fridge, and a sliding glass door that opens to a sizable glass-railed deck with expansive ocean, island and mountain views!
The deck is also accessible by french doors from a spectacular Second Bedroom Suite that has the feel of a luxury hotel room! Here you’ll find an enormous walk-in closet with custom built-ins and a beautiful 5 pc ensuite with dual “His & Her” vanities, a soaker tub, and a separate glass shower. Completing the upper level is a Third Bedroom with ocean views and a french door to the deck, a 3 pc Bath with a shower, and a good-sized Laundry Room with a sink, cupboards, a countertop for folding, a built-in ironing board, and a separate dog-wash center.
Among the notable extras you’ll find wall- mounted heat pump/air conditioners in the Family Room and both Suites, an automatic sprinkler system for the perennial gardens, a Double Garage plus a Single Garage offering room for your everyday vehicles and the fancy weekend special, and a prime location overlooking the timeless Georgia Strait.
