Rural | Lakefront | Luxury | Acreage… What a combination!
This beautiful custom built home was completed in 2007 for the current owners. Vaulted ceilings, lots of natural light, and an easy-living open concept blends the inside and outside perfectly. From the oversized primary bedroom with elegant ensuite through the breezeway to the 2-bedroom guest suite, everything is done exceptionally well and the quality is evident. Walk out from the bedroom, kitchen, or living room to the large patio that continues onto the extensive lawns. All the living is on the main floor with an upstairs bonus room that is currently a study but could be a media room? another bedroom? – and this room has a balcony that overlooks the acreage – Wow! The main part of the home is 2 bedrooms, a den and 2 bathrooms and the suite is 2 bedrooms and 1 spa-like bathroom. The home is mobility-friendly and has a wheelchair accessible shower. The 4.97 acre property has enough elevation changes to make it interesting and allows the entire property to have its own special use areas. Lakefront properties are very rare and this one includes a private dock. Quennell Lake is known for its bass fishing (power boats are allowed), and this location is a nature-lovers paradise with an abundance of birds and wildlife. The property is fully fenced and the orchard and vegetable gardens have additional perimeter fencing. Water comes from the lake and the property has a very comprehensive water system to supply the home and gardens separately. Walking trails through the perimeter forest are a delight, and if you have children, make sure to stop at the Faerie Garden. To complete the dream property, behind the home and out of view, is a Quonset workshop with power, benches, a vehicle hoist, and lots of room for vehicles, RV’s and more. 100% private, yet 15 min to Nanaimo. All measurements are approximate and should be verified if important.
