Walk a few steps to the beach and launch your kayak for an afternoon of exploring the beautiful BC coastline or nearby Mistaken Island, wile away the day on your huge sundeck enjoying the tranquil sounds of the forest and eagles soaring overhead, stroll to the nearby restaurant for some fresh local seafood and live music, or relax by any of the three fireplaces and savor the incredible views of Northwest Bay, the Beachcomber Peninsula, Lasqueti and Texada Islands, and the picturesque Strait of Georgia with a backdrop of the snow-capped mainland mountains. Welcome to paradise! Nestled in a peaceful setting of towering trees on popular Madrona Point you'll find this bright and spacious 2828 sqft 3 Bed/3 Bath Waterfront Home on a landscaped .34 acre lot boasting spectacular views from all main living areas, a fully finished walk-out lower level, tons of storage, and a superb location just minutes from Parksville and only a short drive to the City of Nanaimo. You're introduced to this adorable home by a sizable tiled deck graced with sunny southwestern exposure, and stepping inside you'll find the openness and brightness of the setting is perfectly reflected in the sizable Great Room where multiple picture windows showcase stunning ocean and island views, and a soaring overheight cathedral ceiling with dual skylights enhances the feeling of openness and airiness while adding the warmth of rich cedar wood tones. The Living Room hosts an easy-care natural gas fireplace ready and waiting to offer cozy ambiance and comfy heat to the entire Great Room on those cooler evenings, while the well-planned Kitchen features lots of shaker maple cabinetry and arborite countertop space, a pantry cupboard with roll outs, a slide-in ceramic stove, a garborator, and a large island with an extended breakfast bar. The fabulous open plan allows the chef to socialize and enjoy the lovely views while preparing a meal to be served in the Dining Room or take the french door out to the front deck for a memorable al fresco dinner under the stars. From the Living Room, french double doors open to spectacular 370+ sqft Sunroom boasting 4 skylights and lots of oversized windows, perfectly heated for year-round enjoyment of the ever-changing ocean, islands, and mountain views.

A staircase leads down to a beautiful beach that's perfect for an afternoon of beach-combing or simply relax and savor the fresh ocean breeze and the gentle sound of the waves lapping upon the shoreline. Completing the lower level: an oceanview Bedroom with a wood casement window, a 4 pc Bath with a tub/shower combo, a Laundry Room, a hallway with an entire wall of storage cabinetry, and an additional Storage Room.
