DESCRIPTION
The Perfect Starter Home for a Family, or a Beautiful Place to Retire!

Fabulously located on the ocean side of the highway just a short walk away from the beach you'll find this lovingly-maintained and nicely updated 1014 sqft 2 Bed/1 Bath Rancher on a large and beautifully-landscaped .23 acre lot. Quietly located on a cul-de-sac, this charming home boasts an easy-care one level layout, parking for several vehicles and your RV or boat, and multiple detached Sheds/Outbuildings for flex space to suit your needs.

The huge and sunny park-like yard offers room for the youngsters to run and play, and the established landscaping and garden areas will delight those with a green thumb! The amazing central location offers easy access to transit, schools, medical services, downtown shopping, and the beach and oceanfront boardwalk.

Best of all, first-timer buyers and retirees alike can purchase a Detached Single Family Home for less than the cost of a new Patio Home!

Stepping inside you'll find a generous Formal Living Room featuring big picture windows, lovely crown molding, a textured decorative ceiling with inset lighting, and an air conditioner to keep the temperature pleasant on those warm island afternoons. At the opposite end of the home you'll find a well-planned Kitchen complete with stylish designer updates, a generous amount of shaker- style cupboards with elegant cabinet crown molding, a good-sized functional island with a handy prep sink and contemporary lighting above, and updated stainless steel appliances including double door fridge with a bottom freezer.

The adjacent Dining Room with its modern chandelier is ideal for those special sit-down dinners, the Kitchen's breakfast bar is sure to be your "go-to" spot for those quick everyday meals, and casual al fresco dining is yours to enjoy on the huge 483 sqft west-facing Entertainer's Deck with its built-in bench. You may even be tempted to pack a basket full of food and drinks, then take a quick 10-minute stroll to beach access off Doehle Ave for a delightful picnic on the sunny shores of the Strait of Georgia while savoring stunning world- class views of the ocean, Lasqueti and Texada Islands, and the distant snow-capped mainland mountains...this is what mid-eastern Vancouver Island living is all about!

Stepping back inside the home you'll find a hallway between the Living Room and Kitchen that hosts a 4 pc Bath with a tub/shower combo, a laundry closet with a stacker washer/dryer, a Primary Bedroom with a double closet and a lighted ceiling fan to circulate the air while you sleep, and a good-sized Second Bedroom with double closet that could accommodate the youngster, your visiting guests, your crafts and hobbies, or use it as a Den or Media Room if desired.

You'll find all the sunshine and space that you need for fabulous outdoor living in the picturesque and fully-fenced backyard featuring beautiful rock-bordered gardens, towering mature trees, a delightful firepit area, and sun-sational western and southern exposure! There's also some grass for the kids, grand-kids and your furry family members to enjoy, and a lovely stone pathway that leads to the back of the yard where you'll find two separate sheds/outbuildings that can be used for a variety of purposes!

One is a large freestanding roofed structure that is open on the sides and could be a great BBQ shack, an all-weather sitting area, or string some lights up and create an inviting place to relax and entertain in the evenings. The second structure is a cute Detached Shed where you can store your yard maintenance equipment, garden tools and potting supplies, with an adjacent garden area to grow some fresh flowers, herbs and a few veggies.

Last but not least is a large Storage Shed perfectly located at the end of the extended driveway. Here you'll find more than enough room to create a Workshop for the home-handyperson or weekend mechanic, and you'll still have space leftover to store your bikes, scooters, camping supplies, or even a small boat.

This inviting home on its 4 ft cement crawl boasts a prime central location that offers easy access to all of your daily needs and much more! You're a 7-minute walk away from the Temple Food Convenience Store for snacks and quick pick-ups, and you're within easy walking distance of the revitalized Wembley Mall with its Canadian Tire store and huge Save-On-Foods - the company’s flagship store in BC.

It's a short stroll to both the #88 Parksville and the #91 Intercity transit routes for transportation to both levels of schooling and car-free travel throughout the region, and you're just minutes away from the Oceanside Health Center, the new Quality Foods and Cascadia Liquor stores, great golf courses, walking trails, French Creek Marina for freshly-caught seafood, and all the charming boutique shops of Qualicum Beach's Village Center.

Don't miss your chance to own a Detached Single Family Home in the heart of “Canada’s Riviera” enjoying our year-round temperate climate, beautiful beaches, and endless outdoor activities...book your viewing today!
