DESCRIPTION
Departure Bay Executive Home, Magical Park-like Yard, and Endless Views!

Enjoy spectacular 180-degree views of Departure Bay, several islands, and the City of Nanaimo from this distinguished and spacious 3168 sqft 5 Bed/3 Bath Executive Rancher embraced by its beautiful .75 acre setting of lush ferns, towering trees, terraced gardens, three ponds, and stone pathways leading to secret nooks, crannies, and various sitting areas!

Extensively renovated up to elegant contemporary standards, this sprawling one-level home boasts far-reaching views from inside and out, multiple skylights, south-facing oceanview windows in all main living areas, fabulous extra features, amazing custom stone work, and an enchanting and totally-private yard that echoes with a timeless charm befitting of its legendary location in the "Sherwood Forest" neighborhood close to North Nanaimo shopping and amenities.

A wrought iron gate opens to welcome you up the driveway to a large parking area, while a stone walkway leads through lovely gardens to a covered porch. Stepping inside you enter a wide foyer with tile flooring, while sumptuous bamboo flooring flows into an open concept Kitchen/Eating Area/Family Room.

Dual skylights crown the Deluxe Custom Kitchen featuring quartz countertops, a breakfast bar, an on-trend tile backsplash and stainless hood fan, high-end stainless appliances, and lots of shaker- style cabinetry including large Storage/Pantry cupboards, a coffee station, and a glass front display cabinet. There is a beverage cooler in the Kitchen, and the adjacent skylighted Pantry/Laundry Room boasts a sink, a double drawer refrigerator, a stacker washer/dryer, and great extra cupboard space for your overstock items and supplies.

From the Eating Area, a sliding glass door opens to the sunny south-facing front yard with delightful stone benches and several sitting areas. Wile away the afternoon sipping on a cool beverage and enjoy ever-changing views of Departure Bay, Newcastle and Gabriola Islands, BC Ferries and seaplanes coming-and-going, and ships setting sail from the nearby Pacific Biological Station. At dusk you can gather around the firepit as the twinkling city lights bathe the landscape in an entrancing display of color and light, and you'll have a top-of-the-world seat from which to view the annual fireworks displays!

To the left of the foyer is a big Living Room with a traditional wood-burning fireplace and an inviting bay window with a seat offering a lovely spot to enjoy those timeless views and watch waves lapping on the Brandon Islands. Off the Living Room is a generously-sized Den/Dining Room plus a skylighted Office/Bedroom also with a wood-burning fireplace.

Down the hallway off the Family Room you'll find 4 Bedrooms including a good-sized Oceanview Primary Bedroom Suite with windows on two walls for brightness and a 3 pc ensuite with heated flooring and a large glass shower. In addition there are 3 Bedrooms (one with ocean views), a 4 pc skylighted Main Bath with a dual sink vanity and heated flooring, and a 3 pc Powder Room off the foyer. Completing the layout is sizable Mudroom/Lower Entrance with heated flooring, built-in cabinetry, and a second fridge.

The enchanting grounds showcase beautiful established gardens including rhodos, a magnolia tree, a camellia shrub, an ornamental maple tree, and a backdrop of lush forest alive with nature. The eye-catching stone work is the result of two years of labor by a Stone Mason and includes stone steps, handsome rock walls, tiered gardens, and a fabulous flagstone patio with a waterfall feature!

Owned by the same family for 46 years, this inspiring property offers superb extra features including a central vacuum system, smart switches throughout the home, an awesome indoor/outdoor speaker system for ambiance, a security system, and a 12-zone irrigation system. In addition there's a 424 sqft Double Garage with "Pro-Slat New Age" cabinetry and special shelving, a Garden Shed, extra parking including an RV parking pad, and an energy-friendly heat pump and HRV system to keep you cool in the summertime and warm all winter long.

Add to this a prime location with easy access to all the shops, services and eateries of North Nanaimo, both levels of schooling, and the #20 Hammond Bay bus line which travels between Woodgrove Shopping Center and downtown for easy access to VI University, the Aquatic Center, and much more. In addition you're just minutes away from some of the popular parks and activities including Departure Bay Beach, Sugerloaf Mountain Park, Pipers Lagoon, the Linley Valley walking trails, Long Lake, and the Nanaimo Golf Club.
