DESCRIPTION
The Perfect Parksville Project Home!

If you have ever watched TV renovators work their magic on a home and thought “I could do that,” here is an opportunity that you won't want to miss!

This seasoned and spacious 1286 sqft 2 Bed/1 Bath Rancher on its sizable .17 acre corner lot is fully loaded with potential and offers so very much...day-to-day one level living, a large sun- soaked yard, ample parking plus a dedicated RV parking area, and an ideal location that's convenient to schools, transit, downtown shopping and amenities, and the oceanfront boardwalk and beautiful sandy beach! This solid house is a diamond-in-the-rough that is ready to be polished into the perfect starter home for a young family, or a magnificent space for an adventurous couple looking to create their ideal custom retirement home!

The present floor plan includes a generous Living Room with a big picture window providing brightness, great floor space for your furniture, and a floor-to-ceiling brick feature hosting a natural gas fireplace. As part of a potential renovation project with a contractor, you could even consider removing part of the wall to create a modern open plan with the adjacent Kitchen/Dining Room. The Kitchen offers ample counter space and cabinetry, and a sunny garden window bringing western sunshine into the room. Add new stainless-steel appliances, update the cabinetry and fixtures, and that nearby Storage Room would make an outstanding walk-in Pantry with extra space left for a stand-up freezer.

From the good-sized Dining Room with its "Fisher" woodstove, a sliding glass door opens to 226 sqft wooden deck and a fully fenced yard with a gate to a substantial side yard. Imagine the possibilities - remove the gate to merge the yards together and you will have a great space with more than enough room for all of your projects and ideas. Add a patio with a firepit, a Gazebo with a hot tub, or a small Greenhouse with raised garden beds nearby to grow fresh vegetables and herbs in the southern and western sunshine! You could also add privacy hedging, and do not forget grass for the youngster and your four-legged family member to play on!

Stepping back inside you'll find a hallway off the Kitchen hosting a 4 pc Bath with a tub/shower combo, a spacious Master Bedroom with a double and single closet as well as sliding glass door access to the deck, and a good-sized Second Bedroom with a double closet that could be a child's Bedroom, space to host your out-of-town guests, or a Hobby Room for your arts and crafts.

Completing the layout is a large Single Garage with a Laundry Room waiting for a washer and dryer. The possibilities for this space could be a Rec Room, an additional Bedroom if needed, or even a small Suite...the Laundry Room has enough space to add a Bathroom, the water lines are in place, and there's an exterior door already in the Garage that will provide direct come-and-go access to an additional parking area that parallels the driveway. Off Newcastle Ave is a second driveway leading to a paved RV/boat parking area, and some updates have already been done: the hot water tank was replaced and a new roof was added several years ago.

At the end of your amazing adventure, you will have a fabulous new home in a fantastic location, but the real adventure is only just beginning! Now you can relax and enjoy your new life in Oceanside with easy access to everything you need and so much more! Just across the street is Nichols Park - the perfect place to take your furry friend for a little walk, and it is a 3-minute stroll to Ermeskin Ave where you will find an access lane leading to Parksville Wetlands Trail for a lovely nature walk.

It is a quick 3-minute walk to Ballenas Secondary School, and you are a block away from the #88 Parksville Bus that travels to Springwood Elementary School. In addition you're just minutes away from the shops and services of the downtown core, Wembley Mall with its huge Save-On-Foods and Canadian Tire, the skating rinks at Oceanside Place, the new Quality Foods and Cascadia Liquor stores, several golf courses, the Oceanside Health Center, French Creek Marina for fresh seafood, and access to Parksville Beach where you can enjoy the annual fireworks display and sandcastle competition.

The huge North Nanaimo shopping district and the charming Village Center at Qualicum Beach are just a short drive away, and good highway access puts you within a day trip of our most popular attractions including Coombs "goats-on-the-roof" market, Cameron, Horne and Spider Lakes, the towering old growth forest at Cathedral Grove, and the BC Ferries to several Gulf Islands.

Everything great about life in “Canada’s Riviera” will be yours to enjoy - do not miss this amazing opportunity!
