Welcome to Gabriola Island’s best kept secret! This is a special, private property that’s been in the same family for decades! A spectacular ocean front home with magnificent ocean and mountain views awaits. Offering peace and quiet is this cozy rancher nestled on a very sizable 0.35 acre lot. Inside features an updated kitchen, dining room and massive family room with vaulted ceilings – a treat to take in the incredible views. Down the hall is a three-piece bathroom, a guest bedroom, and the master bedroom (including a two-piece bathroom) and more ocean views from the French doors that lead to the back yard. Another hall leads to a big den currently used as a work area/man-cave, and also hosts the laundry area. Feel the warmth from two wood fireplaces and feel some relief with the air conditioning unit during those hot summery days. Bright windows and two skylights allow a lot of natural light throughout the home! There are huge front and rear decks to enjoy BBQ’s, sunrises, sunsets, and views that include twinkling mainland lights, the Coast Mountains and the marine air. A long list of bonuses include: A double garage with a workshop area, back-up power generator, back yard garden beds, tool shed, 4 foot crawlspace storage, boat & RV parking with cover included! And the best is; you can watch whales, boats, planes & wildlife pass by while relaxing on your back yard fire pit area at any time. Get to know your surroundings by taking a short stroll to your choice of three local parks, and enjoy being only 8 minutes’ drive away from the Gabriola Ferry, unique local shopping, marvelous restaurants and Gabriola Elementary. Great neighbours on both sides await you – call Josh Wynia now to book your private viewing at 250-591-4601! Measurements are approximate; please verify if important.
