Luxurious style and rich beauty blend seamlessly in this truly stunning residence which is nestled across from the waterfront amongst beautiful homes on one of Nanaimo’s finest streets. This sought after neighborhood is ideal for those who want an elegant home in an established community setting within walking distance to beaches and both levels of schools. You will be awed by the visually appealing exterior and a grand wood door invites you inside.
The home has been given a hip update and offers an excellent floor plan designed for family life and gracious entertaining. Watch as cruise ships and pleasure craft glide along the Georgia Strait as you entertain guests on the covered front deck or from behind huge windows in the well-appointed living room. Gleaming bamboo floors, extra wide baseboards, tall ceilings with elegant detail, stylish accents and a contemporary colour palette add sophistication while a double sided gas fireplace lends warmth in the living room and adjoining dining room.
At the heart of the home is the thoughtfully designed Great Room where numerous windows face the private rear yard. The focal point is a floor to ceiling stone faced fireplace flanked by built-ins designed to keep the space uncluttered. The sleek gourmet kitchen offers a stainless appliance package, deep double sinks and gorgeous tiled backsplash. There are a multitude of soft close walnut cabinets with custom features such deep drawers, pull outs and corner swing shelves. Under cabinet lighting illuminates the expansive quartz counters and the family chef will enjoy an electric range and gas cook top. Quick meals can be enjoyed at the eating bar or in the cheery breakfast nook. This space, with its easy care porcelain tiled flooring, accommodates large gatherings and in our warm climate, friends and family can spill out to the rear patio which faces the pretty and very private terraced yard. Tucked away from view is a pantry with bank of built in cabinets for additional storage. Completing this level is an elegant powder room and sizeable den with ocean views.
A sky lit staircase leads to the second level where there are three spacious bedrooms; two with ocean views and one with a charming window seat. Double doors open to the sumptuous master suite where vast windows face the ocean. This private refuge offers a sitting area to take in summer sunsets as they cast a red glow over the Winchelsea Islands while the twinkling lights of Sechelt across the Georgia Strait will have you mesmerized. A soaker tub provides the ultimate in relaxation in the spa-infused ensuite which also offers a two seat shower and extensive tile.
The lower level is completely finished and offers a flexible floor plan. Accessing the full bathroom is a den which could be used as a fourth bedroom or nanny/student accommodation if desired. A good sized rec room would be great for teens or this space could be used as a fitness area. There is a very functional laundry room equipped with front loading laundry pair and a separate utility room houses the hot water tank and furnace (with air filtration system).
