This prime end-unit is graced with executive-class features and finishing, a superb Office/Den that could serve as a third overflow Bedroom, perfectly-private outdoor living space, and an enviable location in Oceanside's premier seaside community - Craig Bay - with its gorgeous beach, 14 km of lovely walking paths with footbridges, and a multi-million dollar Rec Facility offering lavish 5-Star amenities including a swimming pool and tennis courts. Welcome to your new life of luxury and leisure!
You're introduced to this smart and stylish home by a covered front porch boasting sun-sational southern and western exposure, and stepping inside you'll find a spacious foyer with Desert Gold polished slate flooring that flows down the entry hall and brings you to an immense open concept Great Room with airy 11 ft overheight ceilings that hosts the Kitchen, Living and Dining Areas.
The generously-sized Living Room features huge windows inviting tranquil pond views indoors, a built-in art niche, and a contemporary natural gas fireplace framed by a maple mantle. Play your favorite soft music on the built-in sound system and you're ready for a memorable sunset dinner in the Dining Room while savoring a delightful west- facing view of the pond!
The chic Deluxe Kitchen boasts lots of walnut- stained maple cabinetry with rain glass inserts, a pantry cupboard with roll-out shelves, a garburator, durable tile flooring, lots of pot lighting, and Champagne Brown granite countertops with a full height backsplash. A half-wall with a breakfast bar preserves the feeling of openness and allows the family cook to enjoy views while preparing dinner, and the quality stainless steel appliances include a four-burner natural gas stove and a "Miele" dishwasher.
The Breakfast Nook with its lovely views offers a cozy indoor-outdoor feel, or step through the french door for romantic outdoor dining on the large partly-covered patio. Here you'll find an outlet for your natural gas BBQ and a water tap for your potted plants, as well as stunning vista looking over a grassy greenbelt to the reed- encircled pond. Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature in the peaceful hours of the morning, or relax in the afternoons and evenings with your favorite cool beverage and be entertained by Mallards, Canada Geese, and waterfowl landing and playing in their natural habitat.
Back inside, you'll find a secondary hallway hosting a sizable Primary Bedroom Suite sporting a walk-in closet with built-ins, and a beautiful 5 pc ensuite featuring a slate and maple vanity with dual undermount sinks, a large glass shower, and a separate soaker tub. Nearby is a bright Den/Office with delightful views and a whimsical blade leaf ceiling fan, as well as a Laundry Room sporting a sink, cupboards, tile flooring, and a door to a large Double Garage with a freezer (included) and a Jacob's Ladder providing access to the attic for storage.
Privately tucked away off foyer is a gracious Second Bedroom where you'll find a south-facing picture window with California Shutters and clerestories, as well as a 3 pc Main Bath with a maple/slate vanity, a square vessel sink, and a lovely tiled shower...the perfect "Bed & Bath" layout for hosting your friends and family when they come to visit.
