|The Englishman River Estuary in one direction, the
Strait of Georgia in the other, and two fabulous
homes in one! Welcome to the Ultimate Oceanside
Beach House - a place of pure fun and enjoyment!
Perfectly located just 10 minutes away from downtown Parksville you will find this most amazing ensemble - a beautifully landscaped .31- acre lot hosting a 3827 sqft Walk-On Waterfront Home with a 3 Bed/2 Bath Main Home in addition a superb 1 Bed/1 Bath Guest Wing for extended family, visitors, or an Airbnb rental.
This beautifully finished home boasts multiple skylights and oversized picture windows, two patios and three decks including a stunning beachfront promenade deck, and a dazzling panorama of unobstructed views reaching over the Englishman River Estuary to distant Mount Arrowsmith and across the timeless Strait of Georgia to the majestic mainland mountains! There is also a splendid hot tub and a firepit area, a Double Garage/Workshop plus additional parking, and charming nautical-themed accents including two nautical figureheads.
Our tour of this incredible home begins with a large and private courtyard patio complete with lovely natural plantings and sun-sational southern exposure. A door with a glass inserts and sidelights welcomes you into an impressive foyer/entry hall with dual skylights and sumptuous heated tile flooring with stylish stone inlay.
To the left of the foyer is the west wing Main Home where you will find a spacious Great Room that encompasses the Kitchen, Living and Dining Areas and boasts wide plank hardwood flooring, an airy over height cathedral ceiling with dual opening skylights for air flow, a rock-faced natural gas fireplace, and a spectacular wall of glass with sliding glass door access to the sunny south-facing back courtyard patio.
The large Contemporary Kitchen features a stainless farmhouse sink, ample countertop workspace, shaker-style cabinetry, bright subway tile walls, a fabulous Pantry Area sporting a wall of cupboards with pull-out drawers, and stainless- steel appliances including a six-burner natural gas stove with a handy pot filler and a stainless hood fan above!
A hallway off the Kitchen hosts a cozy Library with walls of floor-to-ceiling shelving that would also make a great Home Office or Study, a custom 3 pc Bath with a huge glass shower, and two ocean view Bedrooms with sliding glass door access to a covered 344 sqft brick patio just steps away from a delightful firepit area and an inviting hot tub with sound and light systems. Relax and enjoy jaw- dropping sunrise-to-sunset views of Lasqueti/Texada Islands and the Sunshine Coast with the distant lights of Vancouver far to the east, as well as a west-facing vista that reaches beyond Parksville and French Creek up the coastline to the Comox Valley and Denman/Hornby Islands - an incredible panoramic vista!
Enjoy similar delightful views from the 243 sqft glass-railed deck that is accessible from the upper-level Living Room with its wall of windows and handsome floor-to-ceiling rock column hosting a natural gas fireplace. Completing the upper level is a sizable Primary Bedroom Suite with an electric fireplace waiting to bring a touch of romance to your evenings, a 5 pc skylighted ensuite sporting a deep tub/shower combo with wall mount & rain shower faucets, ample cabinetry including a built-in makeup table, a dressing area with a mirrored closet and wall of cabinetry.
Off the foyer to the right, you will find double pocket doors that open to the East Wing of the Home and use the fabulous Guest/Entertaining Suite to host your family members, a live-in caregiver, or as an Airbnb as a revenue generator.
The layout includes a full Entertainer's Kitchen boasting ample shaker-style cabinetry, a corner sink plus a prep sink, heated tile flooring, a directional chandelier, a charming cafe-style breakfast bar counter with a wood top and a picture window facing the sea! The quality stainless steel appliances include a double-drawer dishwasher, a four-burner gas cooktop with a glass and steel hood fan above, a wine fridge, a beverage cooler, and a third mini-fridge for refreshments.
Adjacent is a large skylighted Family Room accented with wainscoting, a rock-faced natural gas fireplace, and a sliding glass door that opens to a private 392 sqft glass-railed deck with breathtaking ocean views! Completing the layout is a hallway hosting a skylighted 5 pc Bath with a dual sink vanity, a tub/shower combo, a patterned glass door that opens to a large Bedroom with tower shelving, crown molding, and a mirrored triple closet.
The extensive oceanfront yard offers outdoor living at its very best! Here you will find a beautiful garden, a lawn for your pets, an outdoor shower for after a day on the beach, an extended 12' wide beachfront promenade deck with a nautical rope & net railing, and a gate that opens directly to the beach where you can enjoy an afternoon of kayaking, beachcombing, or take a dip in the very swim-able waters.
This amazing home offers fabulous extra features including outdoor storage space for your gardening equipment and water toys, a nice garden area with six raised garden boxes, an oversized 710 sqft Detached Garage/Workshop (heated and insulated) with great storage, an EV charging station, plus space for both your everyday vehicle and the fancy weekend special!
There's also RV parking with an electrical hookup, two separate "Rinnai" natural gas hot water on- demand tanks, dual electrical panels for the two homes, a shared Laundry Room with cupboards and a sink, an automatic sprinkler system, custom cabinetry and tile work throughout, two natural gas BBQ outlets on either side of the home, and a replaced septic field (2010).
The best feature of this home and property is surely the prime location in the quiet neighborhood of San Pareil! Walk out the gate onto the beach for a romantic sunset stroll along the shoreline, amble across the street to the Englishman River Estuary for some bird-watching or a refreshing nature hike, bike along the riverside trail into Parksville for a coffee or a fresh loaf of bread, or simply relax on the deck and savor the fresh sea breeze, eagles and gulls soaring overhead, boaters and distant cruise ships navigating the Strait, and sea lions and whales that often pass by!
Our mild temperate climate allows for year-round boating, fishing, hiking, and golf at one of Oceanside’s fine courses, and you are within a short drive of Qualicum Beach and the North Nanaimo shopping district.
From the moment you first experience this incredible Oceanfront Home, you will know you have found something incredibly unique and special – come and be inspired!
