You’re greeted by a grand covered entry with a sunny south-facing patio surrounded by lovely rockwork and natural plantings. A french door welcomes you into a foyer with an adjacent Coat Room, while an entry hallway leads to the heart of this special home: a bright open plan Great Room hosting the custom-designed Kitchen, Living and Dining Areas and boasting airy 12.4 and 10 ft overheight ceilings plus big picture windows framing delightful views while bathing the room in soft natural light.
The generously-sized Living Room features an inviting natural gas fireplace with a traditional red brick surround, as well as a contemporary ceiling fan to circulate the cozy radiant heat throughout the room on those cooler island evenings. The Deluxe Custom Kitchen offers lots of counter space and shaker-style cabinetry, a big farmhouse sink, a large butcher block island with a breakfast bar and storage cupboards beneath, a nearby walk-in pantry with built-in shelving, and quality stainless steel appliances including a built-in convection/steam/microwave wall oven and a 5-burner natural gas stove.
Enjoy lovely forest, ocean and marina views from the good-sized Dining Room, or step through the sliding glass door out to a huge glass-railed deck for romantic al fresco dining! Spanning the entire length of the home and partly covered for all-season enjoyment, the fabulous deck offers lots of space for your outdoor furniture, a handy natural gas BBQ outlet, an inviting natural gas firepit to gather around in the evening, and a beautiful vista that includes the marina and the Ballenas Island group, as well as Lasqueti and Texada Islands.
Off the Great Room is a hallway hosting the first of the two main-level Primary Bedroom Suites, where you'll find a large walk-in closet, a sliding glass door to the deck, and a 5 pc ensuite sporting dual vanities, a water closet, a soaker tub, and a sizable glass shower with dual handheld and rainshower faucets.
Tucked away on the opposite end of the home you’ll find the second Primary Bedroom Suite sporting a delightful day bed area with built-in cupboards and shelving, a walk-in closet, a sliding glass door to the deck, and a custom 5 pc ensuite sporting a “His & Her” vanity with dual undermount sinks and a deep tub/shower combo with stylish subway tiles. Currently the Suite sports a chair rail/lift system for those with mobility issues, but the seller will remove it if it’s not needed.
Nearby is a sizable Laundry Room with a sink, cupboards, and a countertop for folding, as well as a special area for your furry family members with a stainless steel dog bath, two built-in kennels, and a frosted glass door offering exterior access. In addition there's a handy linen closet close by, a second foyer/Mud Room with a built-in bench and a door with a ramp for handicap or grocery trolley access to an extra-large 1233 sqft Double Garage complete with a third bay (with 220 amp electrical) that’s currently being used as Workshop...already framed for the addition of another bay door.
Completing the main level is a 2 pc Powder Room with a vessel sink, and a good-sized Den/Office with top-down/bottom-up blinds, built-in cabinetry, and a storage closet...ideal for work- from-home situations or use it as a Third Bedroom if needed.
The finished 2018 sqft walk-out lower level with its 9 ft ceilings hosts a 2 Bed/1 Bath Guest Suite that’s perfect for your extended family or In- Laws, or a fabulous "Home-Suite-Home" for those who host out-of town visitors! The layout includes a generously-sized Family Room with sliding glass door access to a covered patio with lovely views, and a beautifully-finished 4 pc Kitchen featuring granite countertops, ample cabinetry with soft- close drawers, a pantry closet, and a sandstone- topped island with a stainless sink, more cupboards beneath, and a handy extension with a small dining table. In addition there are stainless steel appliances, a stainless hood fan, and pre-plumbing is in place for the addition of a dishwasher.
Book-ending the Family Room are 2 good-sized Bedrooms both with views, and nearby you’ll find a laundry closet with a stacker washer/dryer, and a 5 pc Bath with a dual sink vanity, a water closet, and a tub/shower combo.
A hallway off the Kitchen/Family Room hosts a large Storage Room, an amazing Hobby Room with cupboards, lighted shelving, and a frosted glass door that opens to lower foyer and exterior access. Completing the lower level is an unfinished framed-in area that could be used as a lower-level Workshop or a large Bedroom...plumbing is in place for the addition of an ensuite, and one wall of the Hobby Room could be modified to offer access to the new Suite.
The tiered backyard offers grass for the doggie on the upper level, and a wooden staircase winding down to the lower level where you’ll find additional parking with a roundabout driveway providing direct access to Dolphin Drive.
Among the extra features of this amazing home you’ll find a security system covering the upper and lower levels, a built-in irrigation system, an air conditioner, a natural gas forced-air furnace, an automatic built-in generator (powered by natural gas), and extra parking for the Suite or your guests on Shelby Lane and Dolphin Drive.
Add to this a prime location! Just down the street you'll find the boat ramp at Schooner Cove Marina, and Schooner Cove is now being developed into "Fairwinds Landing" - a waterfront village featuring pedestrian-oriented open spaces, a coffee shop, a pub, a convenience store, and a restaurant. You're just minutes away from Fairwinds world-class 18 hole golf course (designed by Les Furber), miles of beautiful walking trails, and the 20,000 sqft Fairwinds Wellness Club Rec Center boasting a 20 meter indoor pool, a hot tub, a sauna, and a tennis court.
