Nanaimo house description

Bayside is Nanaimo’s “Diamond in the Rough”. Experience this beautiful, scenic oceanfront, 3800 square feet home, on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Bayside is conveniently located, 7 minutes, by car, from Nanaimo City Centre and within 10 minutes from a variety of shopping malls. Centrally located on Vancouver Island it takes only a short time to take in the best sport and fresh water fishing and diving adventures of the world. When you're in the mood to explore more of the Island, Tofino, on the Pacific Coast, is only 2 ½ hours west and Victoria is a 1 ½ hour drive south.

This newly renovated, air conditioned home allows for many different types of family gatherings and entertainment opportunities. The two large decks, running the length of the home, overlook the Bay and a private landscaped and grassed yard. Relax on the deck recliners and watch the eagles, cormorants and gulls sunning themselves along the tidal shoreline, or site a deer strolling across the yard and at night enjoy the breathtaking sunsets. The beach, only a step away, is a wonderful vista with the ever changing tides and a place for beachcombing and swimming.

This home is furnished with new, contemporary furniture, by a well known Vancouver Designer. It features three bedrooms, four full bathrooms, one powder room, three fireplaces, and hardwood floors. Bayside's gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, gas stove, built in Italian coffee bar, granite counter tops, two outdoor BBQs (one on each deck).

Bayside has an open concept on the main floor, with the kitchen, dining, and living rooms elegantly and comfortably furnished. The master bedroom is on its own floor with a king bed, walk in closet/dressing room, ensuite with special 3 piece shower heads, and a spa bathtub. The second floor has two bedrooms with queen beds and private bathrooms. This floor also includes two separate TV rooms for all to enjoy. The third floor has a private games room with a billiard table and TV.

You have an amazing 180 degree view of the Bay throughout the home. This house is a great place for relaxing, socializing, and entertaining year round
