The large 9000 square foot plus level lot features a generous fully fenced backyard with 2 cherry trees, an apple tree and mature grape vine. The lot size also allows for the addition of a carriage home in the future (please confirm size and setback requirements with the City of Nanaimo). The ample driveway is great if you need space for an RV or boat. Conveniently located close to elementary, secondary and post secondary schooling. A short drive to shopping, downtown water front and other amenities. The home features 3 bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. Downstairs you'll find another 3 piece bathroom, bedroom and family room. While it is in great shape structurally, this home can benefit from fresh ideas. Bring your vision and make this home your own. More details
