Magical Fanny Bay Waterfront Acreage with 200 ft of ocean frontage!

Fabulously located within a short drive of shopping and amenities you'll find a gated entry that opens to your very own private paradise: a beautiful and secluded 2.60 acre waterfront estate property hosting a bright and spacious West Coast Home, a Double-Wide Second Home that would make an awesome Guest House or keep it as a rental, plus several outbuildings including a Shop and a Garage.

Stroll through the picturesque grounds with its lovely natural gardens and towering trees alive with the sound of birdsong, launch your kayak from your own private oceanfront garden, relax on the shore and enjoy amazing sunrises and sunsets as well as postcard-perfect views of Baynes Sound and the southern tips of Denman and Hornby Islands, or simply relax at home and ponder how lucky you are to be living the Vancouver Island dream!

From a quiet no-thru road, a long entry drive leads through a gentle field of grass dotted with majestic trees and brings you to a large parking area. Before stepping into the home, take a moment to enjoy the tranquility and pastoral beauty that surrounds you, breathe in deeply and let the fresh sea breeze refresh your spirit, and let the rustic beauty of the grounds rejuvenate your are in a world of your own far from the turmoil of everyday life.

An extended sitting porch introduces you to the 2348 sqft 3 Bedroom+Bonus Room/3.5 Bath Main Home, built in 2007 and used as a vacation home through the years. A front door with a stylish decorative glass insert welcomes you into a tiled foyer that leads into a spectacular Great Room encompassing the Kitchen, Living and Dining Areas and boasts a generous use of glass to maximize those inspiring views.

The spacious Living Room sports a dramatic 2- storey cedar cathedral ceiling, a stunning wall of picture windows, beautiful wood flooring with sumptuous in-floor radiant heat, and an inviting woodstove with a lighted ceiling fan overhead to circulate the cozy radiant warmth throughout the room on those cooler nights.

The sizable and skylighted Custom Kitchen offers ample wood cabinetry with soft-close drawers, gleaming granite countertops, a big pantry closet, quality stainless steel appliances, and a lovely bay window over the sink that allows the family cook to enjoy the exquisite views while preparing the evening meal.

From the generously-sized Dining Room, a sliding glass door opens to a huge Entertainer's Deck with views reaching over the large lawn out to the sea. Relax with your friends and family and savor the inspiring views while the youngsters and your furry family members run and play on the grass, find a nice shady spot under a tree to relax and read, or walk down to the beach with your favorite cool beverage and enjoy stunning views that reach past Ship's Point to Denman and Hornby Islands, and reach beyond Mapleguard Point and Deep Bay to the towering Island Mountain Range.

Full-on eastern exposure makes this the perfect spot to enjoy the morning sunrise, and at night you can watch as the setting sun paints the landscape and the Chrome Island Lighthouse in brilliant pastel colors, while the occasional boater heads back to the marina after a day at sea!

Back inside you'll find a hallway off the Kitchen hosting a 3 pc Bath with a wall-mount sink and a shower, a Laundry Area with a sink and cupboards, and a door to an attached Single Car Garage with a sink. Off the Living Room is a 4 pc Main Bath with a tub/shower combo, a large Primary Bedroom Suite with sliding glass door access to the deck, a frosted glass door opening to a walk-in closet, and a 4 pc spa-inspired ensuite with a soaker tub and a steam shower.

Completing the layout: a good-sized Second Bedroom with a double closet, an Office/Third Bedroom that's privately tucked away off the foyer, and a skylighted staircase that leads up to a to 440 sqft Loft/Bedroom with ceiling vaults, laminate flooring, and a handy Storage Room. This amazing flex space has its own 2 pc Bath with a pedestal sink and a large walk-in closet, making it ideal for an arts/crafts area that doesn't require constant tidying, or it could serve as fun overflow guest accommodation for the kids.

There's a 4-zone irrigation system around the home with a drip irrigation system for the gardens, the furnishings could be negotiated with the sale, and the seller reports that the property's well is a good producer!

The main home has its own septic system, while a separate system services the 1165 sqft 3 Bed/2 Bath Double-Wide Mobile Home that is quietly located off the entry drive and has its own separate address - 7948 White Duck Rd.

Skylights and large windows bring lots of natural light to the home, which includes a 343 sqft deck with privacy hedging, a generous Living Room sporting an overheight ceiling with vaults and a lighted ceiling fan, an Eat-In Kitchen featuring a great functional layout, triple skylights, good countertop workspace and ample cabinetry including a handy pantry closet, and a delightful Nook embraced by 5 picture windows.

There's also a spacious Primary Bedroom Suite hosting a 3 pc skylighted ensuite with a jetted tub, a 4 pc Main Bath with a tub/shower combo, and a skylighted Laundry Room with cupboards, a linen closet and secondary exterior access. Completing the layout is a good-sized Second Bedroom with a double closet, and a smaller Third Bedroom that would make a great Home Office.

Screen doors on the front and back allow for good airflow, the roof was replaced approx 3 years ago, there's a Detached Workshop/Shed nearby, and a 1- zone irrigation system services the immediate gardens as well as established apple and cherry trees. The "2000 Gibraltar" Mobile Home is currently rented to good tenants who have been living there 15 years, would be open to staying, and own the Kitchen appliances.

Among the outbuildings on the acreage you'll find a Shed with a Shop and Storage Rooms, a powered Detached Garage/Workshop with insulation and an alarm system, a Tool Shed, a Pump House, and a huge overheight RV Parking Shelter currently storing firewood that could possibly be purchased separately.
