This spectacular home started with a fantastic architectural design. The oceanfront lot posed many obstacles from extracting a 70’s bungalow type cabin from the property, creating a durable and safe aluminum staircase to the beach, creating a 3 story home with a separate garage, a shared driveway, and a bridge providing access from the driveway to the home, yes that’s right, a bridge to the home – #AMAZING. Breathtaking views dazzle your eyes as soon as you approach the front door. This home optimizes the Departure Bay view with floor to ceiling windows, clerestory windows, and 3 decks throughout the home. Two flights of stairs link the top floor living area, to the middle floor hosting the bedrooms for the family, and finally reaching the final floor with the rec-room and guest space. Unique features throughout this home truly make it a dream home: a dumbwaiter was installed to connect all 3 levels of the home in order to allow food from the top floor to be delivered safety to the hot tub area, a kids bathroom with 3 sinks and a urinal for the boys of the house, a pass through kitchen window that lets the ocean breeze flow freely through the home while the good food is passed through to the kitchen deck, and one last outstanding feature is the covered oceanview deck with an outdoor fireplace that can be enjoyed throughout the seasons that Vancouver Island enjoys. This home is stunning and truly a unique gem hidden away in the Harbour City of Nanaimo.
