|A Charming Lakefront Cottage that’s Fully-
Loaded with Potential!
You’ve watched as TV renovators turn a fixer- upper lake house into a beautiful waterfront getaway. You’ve dreamed of a splendid lakefront lifestyle surrounded by the rich scent of evergreens and the gentle sounds of nature. You’ve wished it was you sipping that cool beverage on the shore while the kids and grand- kids swim in the lake and dive off the dock. Here’s your chance to make all those dreams come true!
Embraced by 3200 acres of pristine forestland is a small family-friendly community that has grown along the shoreline of Horne Lake. Here you’ll find this prime .20 acre waterfront lot hosting a cozy, charming and furnished 816 sqft 2 Bed/1 Bath Cottage boasting 62’ of fabulous lake frontage, lovely interior/exterior views of the sparkling lake, lots of sun-soaked outdoor living space, its own private dock, nice updating done over the years, the opportunity to expand if desired, and a peaceful location just 20 minutes from Qualicum Beach yet miles away from the hustle-and- bustle!
The spacious and light-filled layout includes a bright Kitchen with ample white cabinetry, butcher block countertops, an overheight cedar ceiling that vaults up to a bank of clerestories, and an island with a breakfast bar, as well as a half-sized propane fridge, a 4-burner gas cooktop, and a tile-faced propane fireplace that, with some work, will bring warmth to those cooler evenings. Pine flooring flows into an adjacent Living Room with an overheight ceiling and a delightful wood- burning “Heatilator” fireplace that’s capable of heating the entire home.
Dual sliding glass doors in the Living Room and Kitchen open to a sizable deck that spans the length of the home and offers picturesque views over a lovely grassy area out to the lake. There are several tall trees for those seeking shade on those warm afternoons, plus an outdoor washroom that’s super-convenient when using the beach or changing out of your wet clothing afterwards.
Just steps away from one of the most stunning lots on Horne Lake is a shoreline that reveals a white sandy beach at low tide...the perfect spot from which to enjoy spectacular panoramic lake views that sweep from Bare Point and Dendoff Point across to the Rocky Point channel and majestic Mount Mark towering in the distance!
Launch your boat from the private dock and spend the afternoon fishing for cutthroat and rainbow trout, then treat your family and friends to a barbecue of your fresh catch before settling in to watch as the brilliant setting sun slowly mellows into a starry sky that’s so vast it will take your breath away! It's the perfect day in paradise and a great opportunity to create family memories that will last a lifetime!
Completing the layout of the Cottage is a main- level 3 pc Bath with a shower, and a good-sized Bedroom with a closet and sliding door access to the deck. A ladder invites you up to a delightful Loft/Bedroom with a plywood floor that could accommodate several beds or could be partitioned off into 2 separate Bedroom areas. Among the extra features you’ll find a long- lasting metal roof, durable cedar siding, instant hot water on demand, great water pressure with fresh water drawn from a mountain stream, a handy Shed and additional storage space under the deck, dual propane tanks, and kerosene heaters to instantly warm those cooler evenings.
There’s also an older solar panel that requires some work, a special plug-in outlet on the outside washroom that’s waiting for a generator, and even some extra firewood to get you started. This delightful home is being offered as furnished (minus the staged items). Zoning Bylaw allows for the addition of an extra 100 sqft of floor space or the addition of a Bunkie (with strata approval) if you’d care to expand.
Horne Lake is centrally located on Vancouver Island just a short drive from Qualicum Beach and Parksville for shopping and amenities, and within 45 minutes of the City of Nanaimo. Fly into the airport at either Comox or Nanaimo, or take the Departure Bay BC Ferry and within 90 minutes you'll be relaxing on the shores of your magical piece of paradise!
This is so much more than just a charming little Cottage on the lake, it’s an exciting new lifestyle venture that’s ready and waiting for the right person...are you the lucky one?
