The three level home on a quiet cul de sac was designed to take advantage of the property’s terrain, southern exposure and expansive views. Most rooms face the ocean where you will enjoy watching Departure Bay’s active harbour. On the main level is a spacious living room with cozy gas fireplace and a wall of windows looking toward the ocean. Handsome wide plank flooring extends into the dining room and sizeable kitchen where windows face a nest of green at the rear of the property. The kitchen boasts abundant storage and is equipped with three appliances. Also on this level is a powder room and a door which accesses the huge sun drenched view deck. As the day begins, watch the glorious sunrise or at dusk, enjoy the twinkling downtown lights in the distance.
All three bedrooms are located upstairs and offer commanding views. Accessed from two bedrooms, is a second deck that offers spectacular views stretching from Georgia Strait, past Gabriola and Newcastle Islands through to Mount Benson. The master bedroom boasts a huge walk-in closet with dressing area and ensuite with oversized glass shower. In the principal bathroom is a deep tub and tile flooring. The walk-out lower level boasts a family room with wood burning fireplace, laundry room with and storage/workshop with outside door. Access to the double garage is from this level.
