Comox house description

This mid-bank oceanfront house is a perfect vacation retreat for couples wanting a romantic getaway or for families wanting an action-packed vacation. You can laze around the 12.5 meter private solar-heated pool (seasonal with new pool liner and cement in 2013), enjoy time in the hot tub (new in 2012) that is through sliding doors off the master bedroom and is available year-round, or sit on the deck and watch the cruise ships go by and the seals play in the water. Even the laziest of children are likely to agree to go for long walks on the beach in both directions as they are tempted by the variety of shells and sea creatures you will encounter. The jellyfish on the rocks and the kelp are always highlights.

For dinner, you can try the many unique restaurants in the Comox Valley, or enjoy dinner on the deck – perhaps fresh seafood you purchased from the fisherman at the harbor complimented by fresh vegetables from the Farmer’s Market that is a 5-minute drive (or a 10-minute bike ride) from the house. In the evening, the absence of city lights allows for magnificent star-gazing from the deck.

The inside of the split-level house has an open concept kitchen and living room with Ship’s oak flooring and the luxuries of a convection oven, gas stove, and a sub-zero fridge. You will enjoy breakfast outsdide at the patio table or inside at the coffee bar with floor-to-ceiling windows along the entire front of the house and a fabulous view of the Sunshine Coast, Texada, Denman, and Hornby Islands.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a large walk-in-closet. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has a bunk bed with a double bed on the bottom. The den contains a 51” TV/DVD and a pull-out queen size couch. There is a large office with high-speed internet access and a printer and a games room with a ping pong table and floor-to-ceiling windows with a pool view.

The house is on a very quiet street, yet is conveniently located close to the Comox International Airport and to all the amenities of the Comox Valley, designated a 2007 Cultural Capital of Canada.

                      The beach in front of the house is fit for swimming, but rocky. There are sandy beaches within a 5 minute drive in either direction, or there is fabulous swimming at Miracle Beach Provincial Park (about a 25 minute drive north). The house is a 7 minute drive from Comox Harbour, where fisherman sell Today's Catch off their boats at 5PM most days, which makes for an entertaining way of obtaining a superb dinner to eat out on the deck. After admiring the view of Hornby and Denman Islands from the deck of the house, you may choose to do the short day trip to these islands by ferry (or by bicycle if you are very ambitious) to visit the multiple art galleries and unique shops, do some hiking, and visit and spend time at more stunning beaches.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: We are from Edmonton, Alberta and spent years looking at vacation properties in Alberta and BC. Then we decided to ski at Mount Washington Spring 2004 and look at real estate 'for fun'. How could we turn down this amazing property when it went on the market that spring? We hope to eventually spend much more of the year in Comox.

                      Why the Owner Chose Comox:
                      We think that this is one of the most desirable properties in Comox as it has a fabulous view, amazing landscaping, wonderful neighbors and an oceanfront pool.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This property is amazingly private. The neighbors across the road told us that they had lived in the neighborhood for years before they figured out that there is a pool in our yard. In the evening, the view is constantly changing as the sun goes down.
