A sliding glass door opens to a partly covered deck, perfectly scaled for outdoor dining and entertaining and offering a delightful view looking onto a huge fully-fenced backyard with a firepit, grass for the kids and furry family member to play on, a garden shed and room to add more gardens if desired, and a lovely peekaboo view of the Alberni Inlet.
Stepping back inside you’ll find a french door opening from the Kitchen to a hallway where heated flooring extends into a repainted and updated 4 pc Bath with wainscoting and a tub/shower combo. In addition there’s a sizable Primary Bedroom and a good-sized Second Bedroom that could also serve as a Den, a Home Office, or a Media Room.
A staircase invites you to the 724 sqft upper level with two good-sized Bedrooms and a 2 pc Bath with a pedestal sink, while the 1244 sqft unfinished basement can be developed to suit your needs...whether it be a Rec Room for the kids, an additional Bedroom to give your growing teenager some private space, or even a workshop...the home has 200 amp electrical and a handy door accesses the Single Car Garage.
Among the great extras and updates you’ll find main-level laundry facilities, a security system, updated fire alarms, a replaced hot water tank (2019), new interior paint, and lots of updates done since 2020 including a newer heat pump and forced-air natural gas furnace along with new ducting.
