Nanaimo Vancouver Island homes for sale , Nanaimo REALTOR ®

This grand residence steeped in history, sits majestically on a corner lot which was once a part of the Sloan Estate. In years past, this Newcastle Townsite area developed into Nanaimo's most exclusive residential neighborhood. Its proximity to the heart of Nanaimo, waterfront walkway and marinas ensure its lasting allure. One of the finest features of this home is the outdoor space. A charming sunroom overlooks the huge sundrenched patio where mature trees and perennials border the rear of the property. In this private oasis, bursts of colour are provided by numerous plants. The home embraces old world beauty with nostalgic touches such as the front door's peek-a-boo window, glass door knobs, kitchen cooling cupboard, coved ceilings, plaster walls and built-in ironing board. There are original light fixtures in many rooms and original tile flooring in the bathroom. Most of the main level flooring under the carpets are inlaid oak hardwood. From the gracious living and dining rooms to the cozy den with fireplace and cheery breakfast room, this home exudes charm throughout. For convenience there are two bedrooms on the main floor as well as two bedrooms upstairs. The basement includes a laundry area and numerous rooms for storage. Access to the two car garage is from this level. Added features include an alarm system and newer hot water tank.
