The open-plan family room has french doors that lead to the back garden and a covered patio. The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet and a sumptuous ensuite. Two additional bedrooms and a four-piece guest bathroom complete the home. The exterior amenities include a fenced private yard with an overhang for afternoon shade, a custom-built wired shed and an in-ground sprinkler system. Another useful item is a 50-amp plug in, and water and sewer hook ups for an RV, which can be parked in the extra-wide driveway. The property is close to the urban conveniences and beaches of Parksville, with highway access to Nanaimo and Qualicum Beach.
