|Custom Executive Rancher near the Ocean!
Whether you seek the perfect retirement home or the ideal place to raise your growing family, look no further than this bright and inspiring 1606 sqft Rancher on a beautifully-landscaped .14 acre.
This spacious and lovingly-maintained charmer boasts 2 Bedrooms plus a Den (or 3rd Bedroom), a popular one-level layout, oversized windows bathing the home in natural light, quality fixtures and finishing, nice updates done over the years, sunny and private outdoor living space, and a great location on the ocean side of the highway just blocks away from beach access and within minutes of all the shops and amenities of downtown Parksville and Qualicum Beach!
You're introduced to this captivating home by a lovely flagstone patio, while a front door with transom and sidelights invites you into a tiled foyer. Sumptuous Maple hardwood flooring flows into an open concept living area encompassing the Kitchen, Living and Dining Rooms and featuring sunny south-facing picture windows, a 9 ft overheight ceiling with elegant double crown molding, and a built-in surround sound system waiting to add a note of musical ambiance to your evenings.
The generously-sized Living Room hosts a tile- faced 'Napoleon' natural gas fireplace for cozy warmth on those cooler autumn evenings, a mantle for displaying your collectibles and treasured family pics, some built-in cabinetry, and an included flat screen TV on a telescoping mount.
You'll find ample shaker-style Maple cabinetry in the Contemporary Kitchen along with newer countertops, an indispensable pantry closet, stainless steel appliances including an updated 'LG' fridge and dishwasher, and a large island offering extra space to prep food.
The wrap-around breakfast bar is ideal for those quick snacks, and the Dining Room with glass on three walls is perfect for your sit-down dinners, but on those sun-soaked island days you are sure to step through the glass door and enjoy al fresco dining on the extended 333 sqft exposed aggregate patio.
Partly-covered for all season enjoyment, this superb outdoor living space offers sunny southern, eastern and western exposure, as well as lovely summer sunset views. The fully-fenced backyard has garden areas to grow fresh herbs, veggies and flowers, an added Garden Shed to store your equipment, and some grass for the youngsters and your furry friend to play on.
Quietly tucked away on one side of the home is a sun-filled Primary Bedroom Suite with a walk-in closet plus a 5 pc Ensuite Bath with a dual sink vanity, a shower, and a deep soaker tub. Nearby is a good-sized Second Bedroom and a 4 pc Main Bath with a tub/shower combo, while off the foyer is a cozy Den/Office that could also serve as a Third Bedroom if needed.
Completing the layout is a Laundry Room with a sink, cupboards/shelving, and a replaced 'Samsung' washer and dryer on pedestals, while a nearby door accesses an attached 420 sqft Double Garage with shelving, a deep tub sink with hot and cold water, and pull-down ladder to 165 sqft of attic storage space!
Among the extra features you'll find a central vacuum system, pre-wiring for an alarm system, low E thermal windows, Maple vanities in both Baths, a large 60-gallon hot water tank, a heated crawl space, and a 'Carrier' heat pump with a forced-air natural gas furnace backup. There is also redone fencing on the back and sides of the home, the front yard has been 'Hydroseeded', and exquisite 'Hardscape' landscaping has been added to bring a note of Zen to the presentation!
Add to this a quiet family-friendly location at the end of a no-through-road just blocks away from Foster Park with a kid's playground and Sunray Road with a staircase leading down to Parksville's sandy beach. You're within a 12-minute walk of French Creek Landing where you'll find a gas station/convenience store, a bakery and a pizzeria, and you're within easy walking distance of the skating rinks at the Oceanside Place multiplex facility and Wembley Mall with its huge Save-On-Foods and Canadian Tire stores.
You will also enjoy easy access to Oceanside Elementary and Ballenas Secondary Schools, the #88-Parksville and the #91-Intercity transit lines for travel throughout the area, French Creek Marina for fresh local seafood, several golf courses, and the quaint Village Center at Qualicum Beach!
