    Ocean and Mountain View! You will not be disappointed...this unobstructed view truly delivers. Superb location in the popular Departure Bay Beach neighbourhood is right near the Beach and shopping is just up the hill. This fully renovated, bright and sunny first floor condo with private patio walks out to beautifully groomed lawns overlooking the water. Walk across to swim in the full-sized pool and hot tub or just sunbath and watch the eagles soar by. The lucky residents of Seascape get to feel like they are on holiday year-round surrounded by stunning views from this resort-like building on extensive grounds. 2 Ocean-view bedrooms, in-suite laundry and 2 beautifully renovated bathrooms. One bathroom with a deep, spa-like soaker tub and rain shower is ensuite to the spacious and bright master bedroom with walk-in closet. The second bedroom boasts a large closet and sliding glass doors to the walk out patio. All new fixtures and lights throughout. The main washroom has a large, modern, slate tile rain shower with great accessibility. The kitchen is open concept with plenty of cabinets and original Jennair stove. Sellers moving for happy reasons, but this was a forever home and a labor of love. At great expense and effort, the sellers have had professional contractors renovate this home extensively including removing a wall and opening up the dark galley kitchen to be beautiful and bright. Engineers consulted throughout, and work was done with permits and strata permission. The light and flow is amazing. The real wood-burning fireplace with custom mantle is cozy in those cool evenings. Seaside air and the crackle of a wood fireplace is a bit of heaven. Wide plank engineered laminate flooring throughout and shades of cream and white paint give this a bright space a "kick off your shoes and sink into peace" feel. All measurements are approximate and should be confirmed if important. (id:2493) More details
