This area features miles of trails and roads for e-bikes & cycling. Ride your bike to Parksville's world famous sandy beach in just 5 or 10 minutes, or hit the mini-golf and many awesome kids parks nearby. Other activities such as walking on endless sandy beaches, horseback riding, quadding & dirt biking, river & ocean swimming, waterfall trail hiking, and peaceful nature, surrounded by the mountains of mid Vancouver Island, all just minutes away. There are several golf courses in the immediate area, and the stunning Little Qualicum Waterfalls with miles of walking trails is only a 20 minute drive from here. There is a healthy mix of active retirees and young families in the area, appealing to buyers of all ages. The fully fenced-in yard is ideal for pet owners, avid gardeners, or retired hobby farmers who just want to putt around in the yard. A brand new 12'x8' aluminum-frame greenhouse with raised beds, easy watering & access, and electricity make kitchen gardening a breeze. A private play area in the back yard, complete with bonfire pit and several cords of ready to burn firewood, will keep the kids and you and your friends, entertained for many a get together. Elementary and secondary schools, shopping and all amenities are minutes away. This is one of the most beautiful & quiet neighborhoods in Parksville. Both owners of the property work from home. The home provides more than enough separation for two or more people to be doing different things without bothering the other(s). And if you are lucky enough to be retired, this home will provide you with tons of space to do those projects you've been putting off all these years. The heated pool comes complete with a full time robot that does all of the cleaning for you. Your job is to keep the filter clean, which takes about 2 mins every 5 or 6 times it runs. The rest of the pool maintainence is quite easy if you stay on top of your chemicals and keep the PH & chlorine levels in line. The pool is heated by a Titan Titanium Heat Pump that will take the pool to over +90. The pool also has a new heat blanket, and a second new back-up blanket as well. We just purchased 2 years worth of pool supplies (chlorine pucks, Shock, PH+ PH- etc). We also just purchased a brand new Hayward variable-speed pool pump for back-up, which provides peace of mind worry-free operation of the pool systems. The existing Hayward pump is working fine, we just wanted to have a back-up pump on standby. We are serious sellers and will consider all reasonable offers. The property is also available with a quick close if necessary. We ask that all parties who are interested in viewing simply wear a mask and practice normal COVID 19 social distancing advice. Agents are welcome to bring their buyers here to view the property seven days a week, including on short notice if necessary.
