4850 Shorecliff Point
Nanaimo, British Columbia V9V 1T2
From its grandstand view on the edge of the Salish Sea (Strait of Georgia), this executive, three bedroom, two-and-a-half bath oceanfront residence occupies the premier, utmost-end property. Privacy and peacefulness are secured at this location within Nanaimo’s exclusive gated community – “Shorecliff Point” – limited to 7 residences.
This stunning waterfront home is beautifully landscaped as you pass the sentinel ‘standing stone’ entrance, and provides a cavernous 1,031 square foot, three door garage with work bench, where ample parking for the car buff is never a problem. The low-maintenance landscaping has a programmable irrigation system, is deer resistant, and illuminates at nighttime creating a park-like ambiance.
As you enter the residence, you are welcomed by the immediate views of the ocean, often engaging guests to feel as though they are on a cruise ship or at a resort. Enjoy the soothing sound of the ocean to lull you to sleep at night and wake up to in the morning. This ground level entry, 0.47 acre (20,658 square foot) estate is cradled by ocean to the north east, wooded area to the North West, and buffered with a 30+ foot rock-face to the south west.
Nine to 11 foot ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, sliding glass doors and two skylights bathe this pristine home in natural light and create an ethereal, open feel to a truly dramatic effect.
Adjoining the living/ family room, the contemporary open concept kitchen is simple, clean and inviting. It features a comfortably sized granite serving island, wood stained cabinetry, a pantry and natural gas range. The kitchen enjoys full views of water and the mountainous backdrop, as well as easy access to the spacious main level deck for convenient outdoor barbecuing (outdoor natural gas hook-up) and oceanside dining. The home has a combination of new carpets, and solid oak hardwood floors.
The master bedroom takes a featured position on the main level with its breathtaking ocean, mountain and wildlife views; which includes bald eagles, whales, sea lions, and more. The master also features Hunter-Douglas ‘black-out’ blinds, and allows further access to the large, top level oceanside deck. Off the master bedroom is the newly renovated ensuite bathroom. With in-floor heating and generous walk-in closet, the ensuite also extends direct water views, creating your own oasis.
Ideal for entertaining, the high-ceilinged lower level of the home features a sensational recreation/ multi-use room with wet bar and beverage fridge. This area offers one of the two fanned, natural gas fireplaces. Accessed via this area, the lower level ‘lido’ deck incorporates both a covered area and an uncovered split-level deck with the hot tub, providing remarkable star gazing over the nighttime ocean. The upper and lower decks combined are 1,188 sq.ft.
There is a proper laundry room, and an abundance of storage throughout the home, including a flat 1,100+ sq.ft basement-level crawlspace, which has a workable height of 4’ 5″, and is both insulated and heated. The residence is prewired for security system.
This rare opportunity is conveniently located just minutes to waterfront parks, schools, shopping, transit and a boat launch, in the desirable Rocky Point waterfront vicinity of North Nanaimo
