Whether you seek the perfect home to retire in style or the ideal place to raise a family, you will not want to miss this delightful and bright 1807 sqft 3 Bed 2 Bath Contemporary Rancher on a fully fenced .13 acre in the prettiest and most popular seaside town on the eastern coast of mid-Vancouver Island, Qualicum Beach!
This gorgeous custom-built home boasts a beautiful and bright open plan layout, over height ceilings with ample use of glass to enhance the feeling of spaciousness, great updates, and extra features along with private patios front and back for your choice of sun or shade, and an extra-large Double Garage with additional room for a workbench. Best of all, this perfectly sized easy-care home with its low-maintenance landscaping will leave you with plenty of time to get out and enjoy our year-round moderate climate, fabulous golf courses, pristine walking trails, and expansive sun-soaked beaches, and you are only minutes away from the quaint Village Center for shopping and amenities.
An entry gate welcomes you into a sunny south- facing front yard with mature hedging for privacy and a lovely patio that is sure to delight sun- worshipers! Stepping inside you are greeted by a spacious open concept Kitchen/Living/Dining Room with clerestories, vertical feature windows, and an inviting natural gas fireplace that will provide energy-efficient heat and a warm place to gather around on those cool evenings.
A large window brings southern sunshine into the good-sized Living Room, while engineered oak flooring flows into a Dining Room with a stylish trayed ceiling as well as a Deluxe Kitchen featuring sumptuous granite countertops, shaker- style wood cabinetry with undermount lighting, a frosted glass door opening to a walk-in pantry, and an extended island with a breakfast bar for those quick on-the-go snacks. The quality stainless steel appliances include a natural gas cooktop and a convection oven with a contemporary stainless hood vent above, and there are large storage cupboards for your Kitchen items plus a built-in computer desk with additional cabinetry above.
A sliding glass door opens to a west-facing exposed aggregate patio that is partly covered for all-season enjoyment which sports a handy natural gas hookup for your barbecue and a separate connection for a fire pit. The patio looks on to a fully fenced backyard that has been updated with new hedging, gravel, and garden areas with an arbor. Also added to the irrigation system are zones for the plants and grass, and drip line irrigation that services the cedar hedge and hanging baskets!
Stepping back inside you will find a hallway off the foyer hosting a spacious Primary Bedroom Suite complete with a walk-in closet and a large 5 pc spa-inspired ensuite boasting heated tile flooring, a dual-sink granite vanity, an oversized glass-enclosed shower, and a separate soaker tub. There are also two additional Bedrooms offering room for youngsters, accommodation for guests, or space for a Media or Music Room, a Home Office, or a Hobby Room.
Completing the layout is a good- sized Laundry Room with cupboards, a sink, a granite countertop for folding, and an 'Samsung' washer and dryer.
Extra features include an interior fire sprinkler system, natural gas hot water on-demand, 200 amp electrical, a recently serviced 'Trane' heat pump and an electric forced-air furnace, and an attached 631 sqft Double Garage with a large area for your workbench, baseboard heating, and laneway access at the back - a rare feature in Oceanside! In addition, this 'Triple H' custom home (built in 2015) is still covered by the New Home Warranty, and it was given a fresh coat of interior paint in 2022.
Add to this a superb location in beautiful 'West Ridge', a neighborhood nominated in 2016 as a contender for 'Vancouver Island's Best New Residential Neighborhood'. Kids will like the easy one-block stroll to QB Elementary School, you are within biking distance of Kwalicum Secondary School, and only a 6-minute bike ride away from the massive Laburnum Trail system for mountain biking.
Also close by is the Natures Garden Trail, the 88- acre Marshall–Stevenson Bird Sanctuary and Wildlife Area, and the Grandon Creek Walking Trail that parallels the creek down to the Strait of Georgia and connects to a secondary trail leading to the boutique shops of the Euro-charming Village Center in downtown Qualicum Beach.
In addition, it is just 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 day trip of numerous beautiful parks, pristine lakes, and lots of island adventures!
