    One of the most convenient locations in Nanaimo! Within a short walk to Country Club Mall, on a bus route, near the Public Access on the shores of Long Lake, and handy to so many restaurants, is where you'll find this immaculate condo. Being a top floor and corner unit allows for peace and quiet (even though the building is extremely quiet anyway), and has a large deck. One bedroom and a den (den has no closet but can easily be used as a bedroom), new fridge, new hot water tank, and very reasonable strata fees make this a winner. The building is well managed and maintained, with a recent roof, and new carpets and paint throughout all common areas. Shared laundry on the main floor is kept extremely clean as well. Rentals are allowed, as well as one cat. Currently has a lease in place till August 31/18 with a rental income of $700 per month. (id:2493) More details

    Townsite Gables is a nicely maintained complex with a bright cheery ambiance. This south facing unit is tastefully decorated and is "move right in" condition. With 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, this is a perfect retirement home. The dryer, fridge and dishwasher are newer and most of the blinds are good quality Hunter Douglas. The balcony offers a nice peek a boo view of the waterfront and the parking stall is right outside the door. Visitor parking is also available. Remedial work has been done on this complex and there is a no rental, no pets rule in the bylaws. Extra storage can be found on the lower floor and even a bike rack. The strata fee is low at $243 and the seller tells me it is extremely economical to heat. Some furniture may be purchased as well. Centrally located within minutes to downtown, shopping and the marina. Quicker possession is possible. (id:2493) More details
