Wonderful opportunity to build your dream home on 3,28 acres close to Departure Bay and Stephenson Point in beautiful Nanaimo, Vancouver Island's Harbour City! A lovely mix of fruit trees, flowering shrubs, rolling lawns & grape vines with natural foliage encompassing cedar, fir, arbutus trees and a variety of shrubs is the setting that has deer and bunnies mingling about as you wander over this scenic and charming property. A high rocky outcropping toward the rear half of the property would provide a perfect backdrop behind one of several ideal building sites - at present there is a natural path skirting behind it that leads to where Cottle Creek touches the back corner of the acreage. The original farmhouse, now vacant, still stands and would be more than suitable to live in while a new home (or perhaps 2?) is being built. The house is 2,400 sqft, with 5 bedrooms, 2 baths and some upgrades have been done - new furnace in 2010; shingles in 2011; thermal windows throughout, interior repaint plus kitchen appliances & hot water tank in 2015. Features include separate basement entrance, family room, pellet stove downstairs and woodburning fireplace upstairs. Zoned for multi - family, subdivision is possible making this property ripe for a number of uses with huge potential whether you are interested in just owning your own residential park/estate or developing it with subdivision. Large parcels in this area of Nanaimo are rare - only a few minutes from 3 beaches and 2 boat launches as well as excellent schools and city parks. Don't let this opportunity get away..
