Once in a lifetime opportunity - this rural paradise on 1.22 acres is nestled in between the sandy beaches of Goose Spit and the boat launch at Point Holmes Beach. Charming curb appeal on this tastefully updated custom rancher - enter through the rod iron entry gate and take in the 150ft mature fir trees along the property line. You'll be taken with the sweet country charm from the moment you arrive with wood siding, covered wrap around porch, & creeping vines. Welcoming foyer leads to the formal living room featuring vaulted ceilings, stone propane fireplace, & extensive windows offering natural light. Glass doors lead you to the light & bright bay-style dining room with room for the whole family over the holidays (plus french door access to patio).  The spacious country kitchen has considerable cabinet space, pantry closet, computer desk, island/eating bar, and designer lighting with adjoining sitting area or breakfast nook. The newer addition offers a family room or hobby space and the mudroom has durable new tile flooring, shoe cubby/built in custom closets and more french doors. Beautiful finishing throughout with white oak floors, thick baseboards/casings, crown mouldings & craftsman doors with crystal knobs.  One bedroom boasts a vaulted ceiling and huge picture window, while the other enjoys wainscotting and crystal chandelier - these rooms share a jack & jill 4pc ensuite. Must see master suite and spa-like opulent bathroom with free standing soaker tub, double sinks, Carrera marble, glass shower with niches & topped off with chic fixtures & hardware. There is also an elegantly renovated powder room for guests and very chic renovated laundry room. 

Summer dreams come true on the expansive stamped concrete fenced patio with top of the line heated Himalayan salt fibreglass pool (solar heated with supplemental propane heat, sand filter, LED lights & Hayward master control) with privacy provided by maturing landscaping, overlooked by the raised entertaining pergola with creeping grapes and kiwis. Lovingly cared for over the last 16 years by current owners - well maintained septic and copious pure water supply by the 125' drilled well (Anderton Aquifer). Outbuildings include a 12x20 workshop (220A power) and a 15x25 RV storage (120A power).  Surrounded by wild west coast wilderness (parks, marshes, beaches, parks) with the back portion of the lot offering an amazing  opportunity for 2 generous sized city lots within the town of Comox if you continue Gardener Way (city services are easily accessible). The surrounding new homes exude character, quality craftsmanship and achieve high sale prices. Fall in love with this haven, buy and hold while you enjoy the tranquility with convenience of in-town amenities and subdivide later.  Keep .6acre for the main house and partition the remaining .62acre into 2 lots for resale or to build yourself. Currently zoned for a secondary dwelling - build a carriage home or cottage for family or income. The kids might want to move full time into the treehouse! Land + home + location like this combination does not hit the market often (if ever!) - book your private viewing and consider the many possibilities.
