This gorgeous home is located in the stunningly pretty seaside community of Chemainus, on the east coast of Vancouver Island. This town boasts several tempting attractions as well as an ideal temperate climate of cool winters and comfortable summers, making it a popular destination point.
Built in 2019, the 3 story residence was very thoughtfully designed. Main floor living includes 3 bedrooms with a large primary bedroom that boasts a 3-piece ensuite, large walk in closet and even ocean views! The generous second bedroom has its own access to the main floor 4-piece bath and the third bedroom can do double duty as an office. The living room features vaulted ceilings, a natural gas fireplace and adjoins the expansive kitchen. The kitchen is perfect for the accomplished or aspiring chef, granite counters, large island, walk-in pantry and top notch appliances including an induction range top!
The upper floor bonus room is perfect for the kids or having guests stay over. There is a full 3-piece bath on this floor and a large closet that will accommodate a queen size bed that you can roll out for guests. Doors lead out to a delightful south facing deck that has lovely ocean views all the way to Thetis Island and beyond. The main and upper floors feature warm Acia hardwood floors throughout.
The lower floor has a large partially room just waiting for your ideas; theatre room, gym office or ? The laundry is also located on this level. It has loads of storage cabinets, a sink, natural gas clothes dryer and even a convenient laundry chute! From the laundry you access the massive garage that is deep enough you could store a boat inside. The mechanical room is just off the garage and features a tie-in for a back up generator, natural gas fires the on demand hot water system and the forced air furnace (which is heat pump ready) and there is a built in vacuum. The home is also ready for an elevator to service all floors as the shaft and wiring are already in place!
Outside the home, the level back yard is completely landscaped and fenced and easily access by either of two sets of sliding glass doors off the living room. The gated side yard has ample space to park your RV or boat. There is irrigation throughout and bonus, the property backs to Echo Park!
Quaint though it may be, Chemainus has activities and attractions to offer in spades. Be enthralled by the diverse range of dining sensations in the area, as well as various wineries, breweries and grocers, and the island’s own-grown specialty foods. There’s a whole host of activities available including live theatre, hiking, biking, golf, and marine sports. Two attractions in particular stand out as being famous the world over; the outdoor gallery of murals, and the Boeing 737-200 that was purposely sunk as an artificial reef for marine life and divers to enjoy.
The beauty of Chemainus lies in the way it manages to be at once an attractive tourist destination simmering with lively recreational activities and events, and somehow also a most quaint and peaceful little town. Hospitable, culturally rich, quiet and relaxing, yet far from dull, Chemainus promises an absolutely idyllic life for all.
