Located in the Cowichan Valley, Chemainus is one of the prettiest waterfront towns on Vancouver Island. A great little family town, it is also a destination for empty nesters and active people considering a retirement lifestyle.
Are you looking for one level living in the mid Vancouver Island region? You can spend a lot of time looking around before you will find a home as nice as this one. This sparkling 3 year old home is better than new. It has all the upgrades and finished landscaping. The layout is great for a small family but perfect for a retired couple that loves to entertain family or guests.
Visitors are protected by a large covered entrance on the outside then walk into an inviting entrance hall. The large living room has a vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace and is open to the kitchen and dining room. French doors lead from the dining room onto the sunny landscaped back yard with ocean glimpses, exposed aggregate patio, stone walls, a raised BBQ sitting area and natural gas hookup.
Back inside there are beautiful hardwood floors throughout the house. The kitchen is set up for entertaining with lots of counter space, a large island and lots of high quality maple cabinets. The large master bedroom is separated from the guest room by a washroom, closets and the beautifully finished ensuite. The third bedroom is presently used as a den but has its own closet and there is still lots of room for a queen sized murphy bed.
Other special features include, tankless hot water supply, heatpump, built in vacuum (hooked up), double garage, extra deep crawl space, upper end appliances, special mouldings and trim, porcelain tiles, french doors and special entry way doors.
