Luxurious Fairwinds Island Living Unveiled!

Nestled in the heart of Oceanside's most exclusive enclave, Fairwinds Golf and Resort Community, discover a home that is the epitome of style, privacy, and an enviable location. Resting in a tranquil setting of towering evergreens, this updated and stately 2364 sqft 3 Bed/2 Bath Executive Rancher on a beautifully- landscaped .30 acre features large windows, a skylight, and sun tunnels illuminating the home. A gas fireplace and a pellet stove add warmth and comfort, while multiple decks and patios create inviting spaces for al fresco enjoyment.

This charming home is perched above the road for privacy, and is ideally situated moments from the acclaimed Fairwinds Golf Course, a Rec Center with a pool and tennis court, enchanting hiking trails, and the new Fairwinds Landing complex with a marina, and it is a short drive to shopping and amenities in Parksville and North Nanaimo.

Before stepping inside, savor the serenity of the south-facing Entertainer's Deck. Picture your favorite spot to unwind beside the outdoor fireplace, basking in the sun on those lazy island afternoons while enjoying commanding views overlooking the stunning natural landscaping and intricate rockwork, seamlessly blending with the charm of the forested neighborhood.

A foyer opens to a Sitting Room area with heated flooring that is adorned with a decorative wood beam, a built-in coat rack, bench, and cabinet, setting the tone for the warmth and charm within. Step into the Great Room with its inset lighting, sun tunnels and tile flooring, where the Kitchen, Living, and Dining Areas seamlessly merge into a bright and inviting space. The Living Room features an inviting gas fireplace and a stone chimney with an artistic recessed feature lighting, opens up to a big deck with a gazebo, an ideal spot for outdoor enjoyment with room for your barbecue and an inviting hot tub for relaxing evenings.

The well-planned Deluxe Kitchen combines modern features with warm wood elements, featuring a sizable island with a breakfast bar for those quick snacks, quality stainless steel appliances including a replaced 'Blomberg' dishwasher and a brand new 'Samsung Deluxe' double door fridge with 'Smart Family Hub', lots of wood cabinetry and chiseled-edge 'Granicrete' countertops, an indispensable pantry closet, and heated flooring including the Breakfast Nook with its lovely bay window.

The spacious Dining Area with room for a china cabinet, offers a perfect setting for those formal sit-down dinners, or step through the sliding glass door and enjoy romantic outdoor dining on the newer composite deck and gazebo (2022). An inviting hot tub (with a new cover, motor and control panel) waits to offer pleasant hydrotherapy at day's end, and the outdoor living space continues with a flagstone patio with steps leading to an upper sitting area. The private yard with its replaced fencing (2022), garden lights and fountains has natural landscaping and towering evergreen trees, creating an idyllic setting for your moments of relaxation.

Off the Kitchen is a door leading to a sizable Family Room, a large retreat with a pellet stove and dual lighted ceiling fans circulating the cozy heat around on those cooler evenings, creating a cozy atmosphere for casual entertaining. A Flex Area adds extra versatility to the space and could be used to create another Bedroom if desired. Off the Family Room is a Bedroom with a ceiling fan for a refreshing breeze while sleeping, and an elegant 3 pc Bath with stylish fixtures, a custom live-edge wood vanity with a stone vessel sink, and a spacious glass shower with nice tile work. The thoughtfully-designed layout is perfect for hosting family and friends, providing a welcoming and comfortable environment for their visits.

On the opposite side of the home, discover the sizable Primary Bedroom Suite with sliding barn doors opening to a lovely walk-in closet with built-ins. The skylighted 5 pc Spa Ensuite features a dual sink granite-topped vanity, heated flooring, a soaker tub, and a walk-in shower, as well as a Laundry Area with a sink and cupboards. Completing this haven is a Third Bedroom that would be perfect for a Home Office or Den.

Among the extra features you will find a central vacuum system, all new gutters and fascia complimenting the lovely brick facade, two large propane tanks (one fully-owned), a Garden Shed, a Double Bay Garage with 220 amp power, and lots of additional parking. Further recent updates and additions include upgraded windows in the Kitchen Nook and Bedroom (with energy efficient sliders), new LED Digital Thermostats throughout, a Nest Google Smart Thermostat in the Great Room, and LED low volt garden and driveway lighting.

A new gas fireplace insert was added in 2022, along with upgraded co-linear venting in the Chimney, and 'D├ęcor 44' fans with LED lighting and remotes have been added to the Bedrooms, Den and Family Room. In addition the front deck and covered side deck were added in 2021, along with new fencing panels, a stone wall and cement patio, landscaping accents and a new lawn.

Nestled in a premier location just down the street from the expansive Fairwinds trail system boasting 16 kilometers of forested walking trails meandering around Enos and Dolphin Lakes. You are just steps away from Highland Rd Community Park, and within minutes of the new Fairwinds Landing complex with a coffee shop, Nanoose Bay Cafe, a Marina, and an array of other shops and services.

Enjoy easy access to Notch Hill Park trails offering stunning views over Nanoose Harbor from the summit, Moorecroft Regional Park with a trail leading down to the Strait of Georgia, and Brickyard Community Park with a great secluded beach adding to the array of outdoor experiences. Within minutes, find yourself at Fairwinds' renowned 18-hole golf course, designed by Les Furber.
