Tucked away in North Nanaimo’s desirable Georgia View Estates is this move-in-ready level entry home with in-law accommodation. The stylish exterior blends beautifully with the streetscape in this neighborhood of fine homes. A welcoming covered entrance leads inside to a spacious sky lit foyer and the principal rooms are situated to optimize the ocean and mainland mountain views. In summer months, you will be captivated by glorious sunsets from behind large windows or on the sizeable deck. Refinished hardwood floors extend through the hallway, master bedroom, den, living and dining rooms where a beautiful gas fireplace adds coziness and warmth. Easy care laminate flooring graces the open concept family room and kitchen with a configuration that is perfect for a busy family.
Expansive windows invite abundant natural light and ocean views into this space. Glass doors with a built-in blind system opens onto the upgraded view deck which in our mild climate, can be used most of the year. There is good separation between the master suite and additional two bedrooms affording privacy. The spacious master features a partially vaulted ceiling, walk-in closet and lovely ensuite with jetted tub and separate shower. A sky lit laundry centre is equipped with a washer and dryer, deep sink and loads of storage. Extensive renovations were done in 2013 to the upper and lower floors. The finished walk-out lower level is flexible in its use and already in place is a well-appointed unauthorized one bedroom suite. If guest lodging is what you need, this area rivals the best in complimentary accommodation. If you would like a private comfortable area for aging family members, a student or for teens to entertain their friends, this would be ideal. This light-filled open concept space boasts a kitchen with stylish cabinetry, two appliances and a centre island.
There is plenty of room for large furniture and glass doors open to the covered patio. The balance of the lower level consists of a den, storage room and media/fitness room. Outside, the yard has been re-landscaped and is largely low maintenance. There is a storage shed, raised garden beds and a new lower deck. Added features of this gem include new thermopane windows in most of the house, custom drapery, built-in vac system, Bosch dishwasher, Mirage screen system on front door, natural gas bbq hook up, electric fireplace on lower level, newer roof, seven appliances and backyard fire pit. This is a superb neighborhood close to schools, medical centre and within walking distance to Woodgrove Mall and surrounding amenities.
