I have listed a new property at 3030 BARNES ROAD in NANAIMO.
Looking for a great budget-priced starter home with an ocean view? This comfortable 3 bedroom house is located in the semi-rural Cedar-By-The-Sea area of North Cedar. Only minutes away from schools, parks, the airport, the Duke Point ferry terminal, and South Nanaimo shopping. Walking distance (3 minutes) from ocean access. This home features a family-sized kitchen, oversized master bedroom with ensuite and private ocean-view den, comfy living room, wrap-around decks, and a heat pump. A lower unfinished area of the house is currently being used for storage but was previously set up as a workshop/ single car garage. Lots of fruit trees (apple, plum, pear) in the private rear fenced yard. Quiet area. Monthly mortgage would be cheaper than renting a similarly sized place - which makes this a great option for first time buyers. Home is partially renovated and needs some TLC. Near boat launch area. Make an appointment to view today!
