Custom, executive rancher on almost half an acre backing onto Morrell Sanctuary, facing Collier Dam Park on a quiet south Nanaimo road. This striking rancher features a great room design with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large living room with feature gas fireplace and wired in sound system, a beautiful kitchen, and a huge master bedroom with big ensuite bathroom. Above the semi-detached 26 X 26 sqft garage/shop is a suite. This has been used in the past as a 2 bedroom suite although one room has no closet but would make a great den/office. Great for students. This part of the home could easily be made into an extension to the main home for teenagers, or a bed and breakfast.
