DESCRIPTION
Impressive “Christie Estates” Executive Acreage!

Embraced by the enchanting beauty of mid- eastern Vancouver Island’s timeless forest you’ll find “Christie Estates” – a unique subdivision of estate acreages located just minutes away from two beautiful lakes and the Town of Qualicum Beach. From a quiet no- thru road, a programmable electric security gate opens to a beautifully landscaped 4.96- acre parcel of land with a long-paved driveway that leads to a distinguished 2555 sqft 3 Bed/3 Bath Executive Rancher.

This custom-designed home boasts extensive finishing woodwork and unique light fixtures throughout, room to host your visiting family and friends, unbeatable outdoor living space, superb extra features, several outbuildings including a large Garage/Workshop and a delightful Studio, and a prime location that perfectly blends rural serenity with easy access to shopping, amenities, parks, and lakes! Welcome to your private country oasis!

A front door with frosted glass sidelights and a transom welcomes you into an open foyer, where durable porcelain tile flooring (with a rustic wood finish) flows into a bright open plan Living/Dining Room. Stylish architectural features define each separate area while preserving the overall feeling of spaciousness, and a handsome floor-to-ceiling stone feature wall hosts a wood-burning fireplace insert that’s ready and waiting to bring cozy warmth and ambiance to both the Living and Dining Rooms.

Wide arch-top doorways with decorative pillars frame the spacious Dining Room, while the sizable Living Room is perfectly suited to evenings of entertaining or quiet nights of relaxation with its elegant crown molding, aesthetically-pleasing drop ceiling with a lighted fan, oversized picture windows, and an eye-catching built-in Entertainment Center with bookshelves, lighted niches and an 80” 4K flat- screen TV.

You’ll find a generous granite countertop workspace in the stunning Chef’s Kitchen featuring a handy central island, plenty of cabinetry with soft-close cabinet doors/drawers, a stainless farm sink, a recessed Butler’s Pantry offering additional counter space and storage, and pro-quality “Frigidaire” stainless steel appliances including a built-in wall oven and microwave, a double-wide fridge/freezer combo, and a second oven with a commercial grade hood fan above.

The large Breakfast Nook has picture windows on three walls, as well as dual French doors that open to two separate outdoor living areas! To the left is a lovely screened-in deck with a propane fireplace and a lighted ceiling fan, while to the right you’ll find a generously sized composite deck offering a gazebo with decorative lighting, peaceful panoramic views of the acreage and forest beyond, and steps leading down to a lower stone patio where a skylighted gazebo hosts a new “Viking Spa” 6-person hot tub!

The deck can also be accessed by French double doors from the Master Suite which features large built-in dressers and shelves, a lighted ceiling fan for air circulation while sleeping, a walk-in closet plus a handy linen closet, and a delightful 3 pc ensuite with a granite vanity, a lighted make-up table, a shower, and a water closet.

Off the foyer is a bright Family Room with an electric fireplace which could also be a nice Den or Study, while the opposite side of the home hosts a 2 pc Powder Room with a granite vanity, a Laundry Room with cupboards/shelving and an “LG” washer and dryer, as well as a private hallway with two spacious Guest Bedrooms and a 4 pc Bath with a granite vanity...ideal for hosting your out-of-town visitors!

Attached to the home is a fabulous 694 sqft Double Garage with a built-in exhaust fan and an exterior door opener, while off the entry drive is the access leading to a 584 sqft Detached Garage/Workshop with an over height ceiling, its own separate electrical panel, three covered areas for your RV, boat, or extra vehicle parking, plus a smaller storage shed close by. Just steps away from the home is a bright Detached Studio filled with windows that could be a lovely Garden House or private space for your arts, crafts, and hobbies!

Sunny southern, eastern, and western exposure graces the remarkable landscaped acreage where you’ll find a firepit area, a tranquil pond (fed by a water cistern), a wood storage shed, an extra parking pad with automatic night lighting, and a large open greenspace to host gatherings of your family and friends!

This pet and smoke-free home comes complete with many amazing extras including energy- friendly LED lighting inside and out, six hardwired ceiling speakers, a catalytic converter on the fireplace which produces more heat using less firewood, a “Lorex” security system with six cameras, a “Rheem” Heat Pump/AC system plus a forced-air backup furnace, an electric food smoker, and a separate electrical panel for a generator to power a fridge, lights and some plugs in the event of a power failure.

In addition, there’s a commercial grade 80- gallon hot water tank, a reverse osmosis water purification system for excellent drinking water, a 900-gallon gravity fed septic tank, and R24 insulation in exterior walls with R50 in the ceiling.
