|The Ultimate Errington Country Acreage!
Here’s a fabulous opportunity to grow your own fresh organic fruit and vegetables, start a little hobby farm, or keep a few horses! Tucked away in the timeless forest of mid- eastern Vancouver Island you’ll find this sprawling 7.17-acre parcel of land hosting a 1593 sqft 2 Bed/2 Bath Rancher and various outbuildings including a three-stall Horse Barn, a Greenhouse, and a huge Detached Workshop.
Dual wells provide ample water, zoning allows for a home-based business and various agricultural uses, there are great horse-riding trails in the area, and the private acreage is located just a short drive away from Parksville and Qualicum Beach for shopping and amenities. This is much more than just a new place to live, it’s an entirely new lifestyle!
From a quiet rural road, a long and gated entry drive leads past towering evergreens and lush ferns to a large parking pad and this delightful home. Before stepping inside, take a moment to savor the profound peacefulness, the fresh country air, the sunshine, and the beautiful shades of natural green surrounding you...metropolitan chaos and noise are but a distant memory in this special place!
Boasting multiple picture windows, skylights, and many improvements done since 2007, the neat and tidy Rancher with its warm wood finishing perfectly balances traditional rustic elements with modern features for contemporary country living! The heart of the home is a semi-open plan Kitchen/Living/Dining Room featuring a generous use of glass, gleaming laminate flooring, and an airy over height vaulted cedar ceiling with exposed beams.
A huge picture window invites cheerful southwestern sunshine into the spacious Living Room while framing beautiful views of the acreage. A red brick divider with a wood stove offers a comfy place to gather in the evenings while separating the Living Room from the adjacent Dining Room with space for your favorite China cabinet and a sliding glass door that opens to a large, covered deck with picturesque views of the acreage...ideal for year-round dining and entertaining, and a great spot for your BBQ!
The well-planned Kitchen comes complete with stainless steel appliances including a four- burner propane stove, ample countertop workspace, a generous amount of handsome dark wood cabinetry, and a tiered island with etched glass doors facing the Dining Room for extra storage.
A skylighted hallway (with a storage closet) hosts a Laundry Room with shelves and a deep tub sink, a 3 pc Bath with a skylight, a vessel sinks and a shower, plus a door that accesses a 464 sqft Single Car Garage. Off the Living Room is a skylighted Bedroom with a double closet and a 3 pc skylighted Bath with a soaker tub, in addition to a spacious Master Bedroom with a sliding glass door that opens to a sun-soaked Master’s Deck overlooking a rock garden with two palm trees!
Improvements/upgrades done over the years include a complete repainting inside and out, replaced flooring, a beautifully redone Kitchen and updated Bathrooms, and a replaced asphalt shingle roof. Off the main parking pad is a sizable 1810 sqft Detached Garage/Workshop with 200 amp electrical, 4 storage areas, a shop, and a carport, plus a 496 sqft three-stall Horse Barn with storage and a Garden Shed nearby.
A gate opens to large meadow hosting a charming Gazebo, a reed-encircled trout pond with a footbridge, and a forested area beyond that could be partially cleared if more land is desired. There are 20+ fruit trees and bushes already in place, and just steps away from the home is a 1508 sqft Greenhouse and a spacious garden area (with a Shed) to grow your own veggies, tomatoes, herbs, and flowers. Set up your own roadside garden stand or book a table at the seasonal Errington Farmers Market nearby to sell your preserves and fresh produce throughout the summer!
The gardens are irrigated by a dedicated drilled well, while a second well provides fresh water to the home courtesy of reverse osmosis and UV filtration systems. A pressurized septic system was added in 2007, there’s an abundance of parking available for your RV, ATV's and all your toys, and flexible A1-Agricultural zoning allows a secondary suite, a home-based business, and various farm/agricultural uses!
Nearby is the Errington Village Mall and the General Store, and you’re just minutes away from the new Quality Foods mega-store and the huge Cascadia Liquor Store as well as downtown Parksville for shopping and amenities. The proximity of the Inland Highway puts you within 25 minutes of all the shops and services of North Nanaimo, and the nearby Alberni Highway provides easy access to Qualicum Beach, Coombs “Old Country Market” with its goats-on-the- roof, Cameron Lake, Cathedral Grove, and endless island adventures!
This beautiful acreage is sure to inspire you from the moment you first see it, and whatever your plans may be, you’ll find all the opportunity and space you need to make your country dreams come true!
