|Exquisite "Wembley Estates" Executive Rancher!
Centrally located in Oceanside you'll find this bright and elegant 1796 sqft 3 Bed/2 Bath Executive Rancher on a nicely-landscaped .18 acre lot within a short walk of Wembley Mall and only minutes away from Parksville and Qualicum Beach for shopping and amenities. Quality-built by Randy Marston of Glazier Construction, this captivating home boasts big picture windows and multiple skylights, lots of storage space, a large patio and fully-fenced yard with eastern and western exposure, and a dedicated parking spot for your RV or boat.
The thoughtfully-designed layout will please you, and the superb location will delight you, but you'll especially love the special finishing touches like beautiful wide-plank engineered wood flooring, transoms over most interior doors, heated tile flooring in all Baths and the Laundry Room, and 9' ceilings throughout with the Kitchen/Living/Dining Room opening up to an 11' overheight ceiling!
A fir front door with a patterned-glass insert and sidelight welcomes you into a skylighted foyer with durable tile flooring and dual skylights. An entry hallway brings you to the heart of this charming home: an open concept Kitchen/Living/Dining Room sporting huge floor-to- ceiling picture windows that visually extend the living space out to the sizable backyard while bathing the room in soft natural light.
A distinguished trayed and coffered ceiling with inset lighting crowns the generously-sized Living Room where you'll find handsome wall-to-wall dark wood cabinetry surrounding a stone-faced natural gas fireplace...ready and waiting to offer ambiance and warmth on those cooler island evenings. The stunning Gourmet Kitchen offers ample quartz countertop workspace, lots of shaker style wood cupboards with stylish cabinet crown molding, quality stainless steel appliances, a huge island with a breakfast bar and storage beneath, and a big walk-in pantry!
Picture windows on two walls bring cheerful eastern sunshine to your breakfast table in the bright Dining Area, while a glass door opens to large and partly-covered patio that is ready and waiting for your peaceful al fresco dinners and lazy afternoons of relaxation. A raised planter box with trees runs along on one side of the yard, and there's plenty of room available in the backyard to add a gazebo, a firepit, a BBQ hut, a hot tub, or some garden boxes to grow you own fresh organic veggies and herbs.
Off the main entry hallway you'll find two good- sized Bedrooms with double closets (one with south-facing window that would make an awesome Home Office), as well as a skylighted 4 pc Main Bath with a quartz vanity and a tub/shower combo.
A secondary hallway leads off the foyer and creates a perfectly-private setting for the sizable Primary Bedroom Suite featuring lovely crown molding, the walk-in closet of your dreams, and a classy 5 pc spa-inspired ensuite with a dual-sink quartz vanity, an inviting soaker tub with a cable TV hookup above, plus a huge glass shower with hand-held and rainshower faucets. Completing the layout is a Laundry Room with a sink, cupboards, a countertop for folding, and a door leading to a generous Double Garage with extra space for a workbench.
Among the notable extra features you'll find a replaced hot water tank (2014), a roughed-in central vac system, an economical heat pump with an electric backup furnace, extra parking on the wide driveway, oversized double entry gates to the backyard for unloading gardening supplies, and a dedicated RV/boat parking area with a handy water tap and easy access to the Garage.
Add to this a prime location on a quiet cul de sac in beautiful "Wembley Estates" that offers easy access to all of your daily needs and so much more! Both the Stanhope Community Park and the Ackerman Wally Community Trail are just steps away, and it's a short 7-minute walk to Wembley Mall with its Canadian Tire and massive Save-On Foods store, and the skating rinks of the Oceanside Place multiplex facility.
Nearby is the Wembley Rd connector of the PQB Links trail for walking or cycling between the two towns, and you're within walking distance of the 18-hole Morningstar Golf Course (designed by Les Furber), as well as the #88 Parksville and #91 Intercity transit routes for car-free travel throughout the area. You're also within minutes of French Creek Marina for freshly caught seafood, downtown Parksville for shopping, Qualicum Beach’s quaint Village Center, several beautiful beaches, and numerous regional and provincial parks.
