Offering the charm and warmth of a European chalet, while capturing the essence of exquisite luxury, the finest attention to detail has been paid to every aspect of this truly magnificent and comforting family home. It has been built to the highest standards and offers the finest quality throughout. Outside, brick and stone accents blend into the natural park like setting. Perched on a knoll capturing both ocean and mountain views, this private property offers the best of both worlds. Centrally located, it is only a 15 minute drive to either Parksville or Nanaimo, yet at the end of the day you can arrive home to your own personal 10 acre retreat with private walking trails. It is truly a special place for lovers of nature and wildlife. Close to marinas and Fairwinds Golf Resort. Inside, the gorgeous open concept living area flows freely from living room to kitchen. Exposed wood beams overhead and stone accents compliment the luxurious interior to create the ideal space, whether enjoying a quiet evening in with the family or entertaining for 20. A mixture of wide planked oak flooring, oak built ins and fir floors in the main floor den and bedrooms, this home exudes warmth and luxury. A gourmet chef's kitchen is a dream for anyone who loves to spend time in the kitchen with features such as a Wolf range, large centre island and large dining room. Movie nights will never be the same after an evening spent in the cozy family or media room. In the evenings, escape to the master bedroom, your own private sanctuary, and enjoy a few moments with a good book in front of the ocean view windows, or rest your muscles in the deep soaker tub or steam shower after a day on the water. 3 additional bedrooms offer ample space for children and guests alike. With an abundance of storage, casual spaces as well as a self-contained carriage house, the options are endless for this luxury estate.
