Welcome to this very rare 1852 square-foot rancher located in Hammond Bay North Nanaimo. Wonderfully landscaped with an open concept deer proof fence. You will appreciate the abundance of flowering shrubs and especially that there is no grass. Come inside and there is a large open great room concept with a private smaller living room area for those intimate gatherings, three large bedrooms and a beautiful entertaining kitchen. Cherrywood cabinets and rich black appliances with granite countertops plus a beautiful large island overlooking the large family room area and ocean views beyond. Outside you will enjoy the views from west to the east over Bayshore Drive bringing in the Salish Sea and its cruise ships and other marine traffic. Beyond are the snow-capped cascade mountains, Texada Island and the sunshine coast in the distance. Large crawl space and double garage for plenty of storage. Measurements are approximate, please verify if important.
