One level living is in demand & this ocean view rancher, located within walking distance of Westwood Lake, is a rare opportunity not to be missed. The perfect retirement option, or a cozy family home, offers the open concept buyers are looking for, including a large island in the kitchen, gas fireplace & 3 good size bedrooms. The sliding doors from the living room lead to the deck where the ocean views make a perfect back drop to summers bbq's. This wonderful downsizing opportunity has an enormous, outside access, 6' crawlspace that runs the entire length of the home, no storage problems here! The low maintenance yard means you will have more time to enjoy the largest fresh water lake in Nanaimo, with a walking trail & summer time swimming.
