|Fabulous Turn-Key Qualicum Beach Rancher!
Perfectly located just a short walk away from the beach you will find this lovingly maintained and nicely updated 2036 sqft 3 Bed/2 Bath Rancher on a large and fully fenced .34-acre lot. This charming move-in ready home boasts a popular one-level layout, skylights and many oversized windows bathing the home in natural light, sun- soaked outdoor living space, a superb Detached Workshop, serviced and gated parking for your RV and boat, and a private location just a short stroll away from a large trail system and within walking distance of Qualicum Beach's Village Center!
A walkway leads past lovely garden areas to a front door with decorative glass inserts and sidelights. From the tiled foyer with its oversized skylight, new vinyl plank flooring flows into an inviting open plan Living/Dining Room featuring an airy over height cathedral ceiling, a generous use of glass for brightness (including a huge bay of oversized windows), and a sliding pocket door that opens to the adjacent Kitchen/Family Room.
Dual half-walls define the sizable Family Room where you will find a traditional floor-to-ceiling red brick feature with a natural gas insert offering warmth and ambiance without the need for hauling wood, and a ceiling fan overhead to circulate the radiant heat throughout the room. The completely redone Kitchen boasts a great functional layout, sumptuous heated tile flooring, gleaming quartz countertops with an undermount sink, ample shaker-style cabinetry including Pantry/Storage Closets, a south-facing garden window, and quality "Whirlpool" stainless steel appliances with a modern stainless hood fan above the stove.
The lovely Breakfast Nook with its bay of four picture windows is ideal for your everyday meals, but on those sun-soaked island afternoons you are sure to step through the glass door and enjoy delightful outdoor dining on the spacious 280 sqft patio, perfectly covered for all-season use and featuring transparent skylight panels for brightness. There's ample room here for your BBQ and patio furniture, and you will love the peaceful outlook onto a sunny and spacious backyard with perimeter gardens and a picturesque backdrop of tall trees and evergreens. There is a large lawn for the youngsters and your furry friend to run and play in the southwestern sunshine and tucked away at the back of the yard are handy Garden and Storage Sheds.
Stepping back inside you will find a hallway hosting a generous Primary Bedroom Suite with dual double closets and a 4 pc ensuite with a quartz vanity, a tub/shower combo, and a sun lamp to stay comfortable while drying off. In addition, there is a generous Second Bedroom with a large double closet and a lighted ceiling fan, and a redone 3 pc Main Bath with a big skylight, in-floor heating, a new quartz-top vanity, and a glass shower with handsome tile work.
At the end of the hall is a walk-thru Laundry Room with cupboards and a sink, which leads to a good- sized Double Garage with storage cabinets and space for your everyday vehicles. The layout is completed by French double doors that open from the foyer to a Den/Office with a wall of built-in cabinetry that could serve as additional Bedroom if needed.
From the street, a new asphalt second driveway leads past a new gate back to a sizable parking area with a handy sani-dump for your RV and boat, as well as an amazing 816 sqft Detached Workshop with oversized doors, 220 V power, concrete flooring, built-in cupboards and a workbench, and exterior LED motion sensor lights...sure to please the weekend mechanic and home-handyperson.
Extra features of this wheelchair-friendly home include thermal windows, a built-in central vacuum, all new blinds, lighting fixtures and door hardware, programmable energy-efficient thermostats, and a fiber optic cable to the home. In addition, there's extra parking on the extended driveway, a newer 60-gallon natural gas hot water tank with a pressure relief valve, great storage in the attic, the trim and all interior walls have been repainted, and a long-lasting 40- year roof was added in 2010.
Add to this a superb location in Oceanside's prettiest and most popular town, Qualicum Beach! It is a short 5-minute walk down Crescent Rd to the beautiful beachfront promenade for an afternoon picnic on the shore, and you are a 4- minute walk away from access to the large Grandon Creek Walking Trail that leads past majestic trees and massive ferns and connects to a secondary trail that winds to the quaint boutique shops of the Village Center.
It is a short drive to the shops and amenities of Parksville and North Nanaimo, and great access to all three highways puts you within an easy daytrip of numerous beautiful parks, pristine lakes, and endless island adventures!
This captivating home is fully loaded with charm and the perfect place to hang your heart - do not miss out!
