12.6 Acre well-developed hobby farm with great growing land (has been and could be a registered farm again). Fenced, cross fenced, extensive gating, one tiled field draining into an irrigation pond. Gardens, orchard, berry patches, chicken coops, expansive goat pen with shed plus numerous outbuildings including a 2500 sq ft shop. Magical views of Mt. Arrowsmith and the hill across the fields and farm. The property is private; bordered on two sides by Morison Creek to the north and on the west side), Errington Road to the east, Geddes Rd. to the south and the neighbouring farm to the west. It also has the unique added benefit of split zoning, A1, and R1 - subdivision potential. I have numerous documents for review but your due diligence is required The main home is a cozy 4 bedroom plus office rancher with 2 bathrooms on a crawl. The kitchen has an open layout with an eating area and a Cooking Woodstove (and a regular stove). In the living room, there’s a fireplace Insert and a Lennox European heat pump, plus baseboard heaters throughout which the current owner says is rarely used. The porch off the kitchen is newer, pet fenced, with solar lighting. Large windows in the kitchen and the living room take advantage of the pastoral mountain views and to keep an eye on livestock. The front lawn is completely fenced for large dogs and the greenhouse on the end of the house (beside the carport) is a fig forest. Gargantuan 60 x 45 x 18 ft. high shop (or barn convert) with approximately 800 sq ft of lofted mezzanine area plus storage. It’s 2x6 construction, fully insulated, with plywood sheeting inside and out, a metal roof and has its own Hydro meter - the pictures don’t convey the enormity of this building. The property has a registered 56x12’ 2 bedroom mobile home with its own address (1835 Errington Rd). It’s in good shape with a newer heavy duty roof and gutters, covered porch, recent flooring, mudroom, and a bright sunroom with a wood patio, The pump house has dry storage, is easily accessible from the single carport, and is outfitted with pipe warmers for inclement weather. There is a dual irrigation system but only one of them is operational. There’s a ¾” system supplied by the well and a 1 ½” (?) system drawn from the pond. The ¾” system is operational but the pond system needs a pump and some repair. Irrigation goes as far as the back field with power outlets along the way. The forested area along the creek near the watering pond is enchanting and has many interesting features for nature lovers including many varieties of mushrooms, toadstools, and fungi, mosses and lichens, a few large trees, rare pink lilies and flowers plus medicinal plants etc. The trees have been providing heat for the house since the current owner has lived there. All the ingredients are here for a self-sustaining farm, hobby farm or horse property.

Welcome! My name is Brenda Nicolls and I am a real estate agent with Royal LePage Parksville-Qualicum Beach Realty. I am very active in the community and have been a contributing member since I taught summer swimming at the beach as a teenager. I have been a permanent resident for over 40 years in the Parksville – Qualicum Beach area where my husband, Steven Grauer, and I have raised our two children, Gabrielle and Nicollas.
I offer sincere and knowledgeable advice when you need it. I am very fortunate to live and work in these unique seaside communities with their gorgeous West Coast scenery and very moderate climate. I know the Oceanside community and can apply this knowledge to your advantage.
Prior to starting my career in real estate, I worked as a school teacher, operated a family Bed and Breakfast, and spent many years as a local event coordinator. My community involvement has been extensive; from long-time coordinator of the Rotary/Chamber Gala Auction, former Director of the Qualicum Beach Residents Association, former Director of the Parks and Recreation Commission, one of the founding Board members of the Bard to Broadway Summer Theatre, and I am currently an active member of the local Chamber of Commerce.
In 2003, I was the office manager for the successful “Rivers Edge” subdivision in Parksville and became an expert on that particular real estate project. I later went on to successfully market both “Benson Meadows” and “The Bluffs” for MacDonald Development.
Since starting my professional Real Estate career in 2004, I have consistently been one of the top realtors in the Oceanside area. In 2014, I was ranked #1 at Coast Realty Group (Parksville/Qualicum Beach) for the 2nd year in a row, and the top producer for 2014 in all 14 Coast Realty offices on the Island.
Royal LePage Parksville Qualicum Beach & Coast Realty merged in August 2015 and I have achieved the Diamond Award, which ranks me in the top 3% of Royal LePage agents across Canada.
I apply my passion for helping people to my real estate career. Along with my honesty, organizational skills, and determination to fulfill the task at hand, I work diligently in the best interests of my clients. Whether you are buying or selling, I will do my best to assist you with all your real estate needs.
I look forward to hearing from you…call me at 250-248-4321 or 250-752-6926 anytime.
