DESCRIPTION
Fabulously-updated Dorcas Point Executive Rancher!

Quietly tucked away among the tall trees and smooth lawns of Nanoose Bay's upscale “Dorcas Point Estates" neighborhood you'll find this exquisite 1977 sqft 3 Bed/2 Bath Home on a peaceful and park-like .52 acre landscaped lot.

Lovingly updated and cared-for over the years, this captivating home boasts a spacious one level layout, skylights and large windows for brightness, great extra features, parking for your RV or boat, a sun-soaked yard with fruit trees and a veggie garden, a Detached Studio/Guest Cottage, and a prime location just steps away from beach access, minutes away from regional parks and a marina, and only a short drive to Parksville and North Nanaimo for shopping and amenities!

From the pillared driveway, a walkway leads past lovely natural plantings to a front door with a leaded glass insert and sidelights. From the skylighted foyer, unique limestone fossil tile flooring flows into a sizable Formal Living Room featuring an airy overheight cathedral ceiling, a stunning wall of windows plus a charming nautical window, and an inviting "Faber" gas fireplace with a temperature control. Adjacent is Formal Dining Room where you'll find a stylish trayed ceiling, space for your china cabinetry, and oak flooring that extends into an open concept Kitchen/Family Room that's sure to be the hub of your everyday activities.

The totally-renovated Deluxe Kitchen comes with a large skylight, gorgeous granite countertops, a contemporary subway tile backsplash, a powered island with a breakfast bar and storage beneath, lots of custom cabinetry with soft close doors and drawers including a custom baking station and a Pantry/Storage closet, and quality stainless steel appliances including a gas stove with a 220V appliance outlet still available behind it.

An overheight cathedral ceiling extends into the good-sized Family Room where you'll find a superb Beverage Station with a sink, cupboards and a beverage fridge, as well as a handy in-floor plug and french doors that open to a massive Courtyard with low-maintenance rock gardens and a covered area for all-season enjoyment!

The patio can also be accessed by a sliding glass door from the generously-sized Primary Bedroom Suite featuring a custom walk-in closet and an updated 5 pc ensuite with replaced cabinetry, a granite vanity, a low flush toilet, a soaker tub and a large custom shower with dual hand- held/rain-shower faucets and a folding seat.

Nearby you'll find a small enclave hosting a Second Bedroom and a redone 4 pc Main Bath with a low-flush toilet and a re-tiled shower/tub area, while quietly tucked away at the opposite end of the home is a lovely Third Bedroom with a sliding glass door offering access to the courtyard.

Bathed in day-long sunshine, the sizable south- facing backyard with its mature landscaping hosts a fabulous fenced garden area where you can grow your own fresh organic vegetables and herbs, as well as plum trees, Apple trees (including a 5- variety Espalier apple), Fig and Pear trees (including a 5-variety Asian Pear Espalier), and delightful Silk and Eucalyptus trees. Beyond the garden area is a sun-soaked and fully- fenced backyard with an inviting firepit, peaceful sitting areas with beautiful flowers and plantings, and lots of grass for the youngsters and your four-legged family member to run and play on.

The icing-on-the-cake is a self-contained 545 sqft Detached Studio/Cottage that's ready to offer private accommodation for your guests or extended family, great space for a Music Room or an Art Studio, or run your own small Airbnb! Originally a Garage/Shop, the entire structure was rebuilt in 2019 and now includes a Kitchenette with a full-size fridge, a microwave, a sink and cupboards, as well as a Living Room area with an electric forced-air wall heater and a woodstove, a Bedroom area, and a full 3 pc Bath with a shower. Insulation was added to the walls and ceiling for comfort, full cable and internet service is available, and the new garage door and opener now accesses a lovely patio/sitting area.

Among the many extra features you'll find a 490 sqft Double Garage with a workbench, two Storage Sheds and a Garden/Tool Shed, a new commercial grade 40-gallon hot water tank (2021), a replaced main electrical panel, a generator panel that's hard-wired to a "Generac" generator, an economical "Amana" heat pump keeping the temperature pleasant all year long, and an air handler to regulate the circulation of indoor air.

In addition the majority of the home has LED lighting, the attic and crawl space have been insulated, the hidden gutters have been redone and the roof was replaced with an algae proof 40-year fiberglass roof, and there's an owned 100-lb propane tank for the fireplace plus a second 250- lb propane tank for the generator and the gas stove.

Add to this a highly-desirable quiet location! You're a 3-minute walk away from access to a lovely pebbled beach at Nuttal Bay, just steps away from a walking trail that leads to Moorecroft Regional Park, and within minutes of Sunshine Beach Marina and Beachcomber Regional Park. It's a 6-minute drive to Red Gap Shopping Center with its Quality Foods and Cascadia Liquor stores, and you're within a short drive of all the shops, services and amenities of Parksville, Qualicum Beach, and the huge North Nanaimo shopping district!

This beautifully-finished home in its enviable location awaits its next owner...are you the lucky one?
