Luxurious style and rich beauty blend seamlessly in this truly stunning waterfront residence situated amongst beautiful homes on one of Nanaimo’s finest streets. Your own beach access is via a shared pathway leading through an oasis of natural vegetation to the beach below. You will be awed by the visually appealing exterior and sun dappled front patio wrapped in a nest of green intended for quiet contemplation. The home offers a rare floor plan with second storey and partially finished basement designed for family life and gracious entertaining. Walls of glass capture the ever-changing marine life so unique to the West Coast along with gorgeous Winchelsea Island sunsets. Revel in the panoramic ocean views stretching across Georgia Strait to the majestic snow-capped mainland mountains and back again to the beauty of the wild shoreline revealed by an ever-changing tide.
Creating a striking first impression is a grand light filled foyer where ceilings soar. French doors lead to a spacious office where you are sure to enjoy working from home. Sunshine sparkles through huge windows in the well-appointed living room where a gas fireplace lends warmth and can be enjoyed from the adjoining dining room. At the heart is a magnificent two storey Great Room where stunning views take centre stage. A gas fireplace with stone facing is flanked by built-ins keeping the space uncluttered. Step out to the expansive deck which acts as your outdoor living room. Relax in our warm West Coast climate on the custom bench with privacy screen or enjoy cooking at the barbecue with outdoor gas connection.
Whether gazing at cruise ships gliding through Georgia Strait, eagles flying to their nests or perhaps a pod of whales on their yearly migration, there is always something to see. Integrating flawlessly is the open plan kitchen which has been designed to optimize the views during meal preparation. In floor heat adds warmth and the family chef will love the induction cooktop and steam assist combination microwave wall oven. A centre island adds to the abundant workspace and a walk-in pantry gives even more storage. Completing this level is a powder room and efficient laundry centre with access to the triple garage.
A curved stairway leads to the second floor where a spacious loft overlooks the Great Room taking in the spectacular views. All three bedrooms on this level are oversized and one of two linen closets has a laundry chute. The sky lit principal bathroom boasts a soaker tub and separate shower. The master suite with unending views is your own private refuge. This romantic space has a two sided gas fireplace which can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own bed or from the opulent ensuite as you luxuriate in the jetted soaker tub. Next to the walk-in closet is a separate room which would work well for fitness equipment, as a nursery or dressing room.
Descend to the light filled walk-out lower level. In the rec room is an electric fireplace and plenty of space for your home theatre and games table ensuring hours of fun for friends and family. For the wine connoisseur, there is a walk-in wine cellar. A good sized fourth bedroom with ocean view is ideal for guests or teens and has convenient access to a full bathroom. Copious storage is provided in the unfinished area spanning the length of the home. Some of the many features of this special property include a security system, built-in vac, irrigation system, newer heat pump, water feature and new roof. This rare offering is more than a place to live – it’s a lifestyle in itself.
