|A Little Paradise in the Heart of Lighthouse
You’ll find everything you need for peaceful island living and so much more in this spacious and airy 2165 sqft 3 Bed/2 Bath Rancher on a pleasingly-landscaped .49 acre boasting generously-proportioned rooms, big windows allowing for a surplus of natural light, more storage space than you’ll ever need, lots of parking including serviced RV parking, a huge sun-soaked yard with a variety of fruit trees and veggie gardens, and a superb location on quiet no-through-road just a short walk to a large trail system and the beach, and only minutes from Bowser and Qualicum Beach for shopping and amenities!
An overheight pillared porch looks onto a front yard with a pebbled pathway leading past lovely natural plantings, and stepping through the solid fir front door with sidelights you enter a bright open plan Kitchen/Living/Dining Room with lots of pot lights, stylish crown molding, and top-down/bottom-up blinds.
The sizable Living Room features an easy-care electric fireplace with a polished concrete facade and a live edge mantle for displaying your favorite treasures, family photos, and seasonal decorations, while the Dining Room sports a handy built-in bench and the same 9 ft ceilings that you’ll find throughout this charming home.
The generously-sized Kitchen comes complete with a large skylight, lots of countertop workspace and maple cabinetry including glass- front display cupboards and a built-in wine rack, a custom tiled backsplash, a garden window above a composite double-bowl sink (with hot water on demand), a big walk-in pantry, and a breakfast bar for those quick on-the-go snacks.
A door (with a retractable screen) opens to a huge covered patio sporting a propane BBQ hookup and looking onto a nicely-landscaped backyard with a variety of trees and shrubs...the perfect spot to relax with your favorite cool beverage on those warm island afternoons and sure to be the scene of many quiet morning brunches, post-work happy hours, and memorable alfresco dinners!
Back inside you’ll find a wide hallway (with wainscoting and a sun tunnel) hosting a Bedroom/Den/Office with space for wardrobe cabinet and a big window inviting southern sunshine inside, a Guest Bedroom with cheater ensuite access to the 3 pc Main Bath with a walk-in shower, and a large Primary Bedroom Suite featuring a double and single closet plus a sizable 4 pc ensuite with a linen closet.
Nearby is a spacious Laundry/Mudroom with cupboards, a sink, an exterior door to the yard and a 724 sqft Double Garage, as well as access to a massive 6 ft lighted crawl space with concrete flooring and an eye-popping 2165 sqft of storage space!
The sunny and fully-fenced backyard offers lots of grass for your four-legged companion to play on, lovely pin oak and dogwood trees, an amazing 125 sqft Detached Shed for your gardening equipment, fruit trees/bushes including raspberries, a plum and two apple trees, and a fabulous veggie garden area hosting four raised beds with asparagus, rhubarb and tayberries! You’ll enjoy fresh and healthy organic snacks, save money on the grocery bill, and reduce the amount of plastic packaging you generate...you may even be tempted to make your own canned goods and preserves!
Among the great extra features you’ll find crown molding in most rooms and screens on opening windows, RV parking with a sani-dump, electricity and water hookups, an energy- friendly heat pump, a security system, a leased propane tank for the hot-water-on demand, the BBQ hookup and a generator, as well as a combination drip/spray sprinkler system for the yard and gardens.
Add to this a superb location just blocks away from Wildwood Community Park and the northern loop of the Lighthouse Country Regional Trail for a refreshing walk through rare protected Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystem, and a short stroll away from access to a long stretch of beach at the end of nearby Bowser Rd.
You’re only a few minutes away from Magnolia Court Mall and Tomms Food Village for those quick pick-ups, it’s a short drive to Rosewall Creek Provincial Park and the Buckley Bay Ferry to Denman and Hornby Islands, and you’re within 40 minutes of two beautiful lakes, Courtenay/Comox, and North Nanaimo’s sprawling shopping district!
This splendid country retreat is waiting to offer comfort, convenience, and carefree island living to its new owner...are you the lucky one?
