This is a unique property with Chase River ( more like a creek) intersecting it. The three story, 2079 sq ft Lindal Cedar A-frame home sits high above the riverbank with its lush, natural vegetation. Upgrades include a remodeled kitchen, new flooring and new appliances. A wood or pellet stove could be installed on the lower floor as it is set up for one. The open concept floor plan of this home allows a new owner to design the living space to suit his or her needs. There is wrap around deck with a spiral staircase leading to the hot tub & the yard is low maintenance. Just a 10 minute drive to either ferry terminal, close to downtown Nanaimo & walking distance to two shopping plazas. Feels like country living but with city amenities!

I now live on a rural property in the mid-Vancouver Island area but I was very fortunate to spend my childhood and teen years in Victoria during the 50's and 60's when children could safely play in a 20 acre Garry Oak meadow unsupervised by adults. Later on, for several years, I rode horses from a family friend's farm, on trails through what is now Broadmead, on the beach in Cordova Bay and over Mt Doug, to events at the Carley's Riding Academy near the University of Victoria.
When I finished high school I went to France as an "au pair" girl to learn French. I graduated from UVIC with a BA in French and English; my studies were financed by my work in the summers as a Timber Cruiser for the B.C. Forest Service. After completing a year of teacher training, I travelled to the Comoro Islands, Africa, to work as a volunteer teacher for two years.
Since my return to Canada my work activities have included starting a horse & carriage company on Salt Spring Island, raising & training heritage Canadian horses and teaching Distance Education & French Immersion. The highlight of my work life so far is having raised two wonderful sons.
My present interests include organic gardening, promoting local food, horses, my dog, reading, writing, and protecting our precious natural environment. During the summer time I enjoy ocean swimming near Ladysmith as well as walking outdoors all year round. I dislike snow and feel very lucky to not be subjected to it very often!
I feel that two of my main roles as a real estate professional are helping people through change and writing excellent contracts which legally protect my clients. Due to my years of professional experience and extensive knowledge of the Vancouver Island area, I can assist buyers and sellers of rural properties or city homes from Victoria all the way to Qualicum Beach. I also understand the needs not only of couples and families, but also of independent men and women.
Please allow me to introduce you to the MAGIC of Vancouver Island!
