Description
Super cute and loaded with character! If you're looking for a charming, unique home with quirky touches and a fabulous location, look no further than this adorable 1373 sqft 2 Bed/3 Bath Rancher on a sizable .21 acre lot right across the street from beach access in the ever-popular enclave of Beachcomber with a lovely Regional Park and marina nearby, and just a short drive to Parksville, Qualicum Beach and Nanaimo for shopping and all amenities.
Perfect for a senior couple, a small family or first time homeowners, this lovingly-maintained home in its peaceful forested setting offers nice updating done over the years, organic accents of wood and stone, multiple skylights, lots of storage, peek-a-boo ocean views, a spacious sunny yard with garden areas and a greenhouse, and parking for a small RV or boat. From the moment you first see this charmer, you'll know that you've found something very special!
A semi-circular Living Room with a vaulted cedar ceiling wraps around a floor-to-ceiling river rock propane fireplace, ready to provide plenty of warmth throughout the entire home and a cozy place for family and friends to gather round on those cooler evenings. In addition there are large forest view windows with top-down-bottom-up blinds, a small loft area, and a handy built-in desk with shelving that's perfect for computer.
Adjacent to the Living Room is the heart of this delightful home: a bright, open plan Kitchen/Dining Room with various ceiling vaults and a wet bar area with a sink and cupboards. A skylight brings plenty of soft natural light to the updated Kitchen with its superb functional layout, farmhouse sink, stainless steel appliances, stylish backsplash, fabulous butcher block island, and beautiful shaker-style cabinetry custom-built by the current owner, a cabinet maker by trade.
Off the Kitchen is a frosted-glass french door leading to a nicely updated 2 pc Powder Room plus a small hallway hosting a convenient Mudroom with lots of storage and a Laundry Room with shelving and counter space. In addition there's a peaceful Master Bedroom boasting an overheight cathedral ceiling, triple skylights, a window seat, built-in bookshelves, and an electric fireplace for that added touch of romance, while beyond the large linen closet you'll find 2 connecting Bedrooms that share access to a 4 pc Bath with a vessel sink and tub/shower combo.
You're sure to spend countless hours enjoying the beautifully treed and fully fenced west-facing backyard...you're very own private piece of paradise! An extended covered porch looks onto an outstanding deck/patio area with lots of room to add some outdoor furniture, a barbecue, and even an outdoor fireplace. The raised garden beds and greenhouse invite you to grow your own fresh flowers, herbs, and veggies, while several fruit trees (including plum, pear, and apple) may just inspire you to make your own home-made jams and preserves. In addition there's a superb detached single car Garage (built with permits) sporting a frosted glass-panel garage door that could also be a great workshop for the home handyman or fabulous space for the artist in the family.
Among the great extras and updates you'll find a replaced septic system (2000), updated electrical and plumbing (2010), a newer roof on the home and garage (2008), easy-care laminate flooring throughout, parking for a small RV or boat (ideal with Beachcomber Marina just around the corner), and delightful ocean glimpses that expand in the winter months.
The icing-on-the-cake is the great location on the Beachcomber Peninsula. Each day you'll experience a wonderful reconnection with nature as resident area deer relax in the shady glades, eagles soar overhead, and don't be surprised to find sea lions lounging on the rocks near the shore. Directly across the street is superb beach access off Ludgate Road (the best spot in the area to dig for oysters), and just minutes from your front door is Beachcomber Regional Park with its walking trails meandering past Gary Oak, Douglas Fir, and Arbutus trees, and winding down to a beautiful beach with spectacular views of the Georgia Strait. In addition it's only a short drive to Parksville, Qualicum Beach and Nanaimo where you’ll find shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, all amenities, and several world-class golf courses.
It's all here for you...an adorable Rancher full of character and charm, a picturesque natural setting, and easy access to everything you need for a happy life. Make your move!
