NOW SOLD!  Great value in this Character Home with many updates. It is currently being used with 2 bedrooms on the main floor and 1 down Stairs.   The lower level bedroom would also make an awesome family room offering flexibility depending on your family requirements. There are 2 renovated, spacious bathrooms - one on each floor. The lower level is under height but functions very well. The laundry room has a workbench area with separate door to the outside. There is lots of storage too both inside and out.  There is a nice shed outside for all of your garden needs.  The woodshed is also a great plus and services the homes wood stove. The fully fenced yard makes this home a good fit for the family with children and pets. Knowles Park just a few steps away was recently upgraded and is a perfect playground for kids. The large 6,500 sqft lot has easy access from either the front street or the unused lane. Officially a lane exists but the neighbors have grassed it in making the back yard very peaceful and quiet- if you did want to put in a back garage this could be done with access off the lane or from the front street.  Please check with the city for more details regarding the lane and its use. The potential for a carriage home also exists again but please do check with the City of Nanaimo for requirements and details.  There are more updates that we can mention here.  Some of them include $50,000 spent on exterior work (siding, decks, covered front porch..). The old panel board in the main living areas have been drywalled.  You'll notice the updated lighting, electrical (100 amp service) windows, flooring, tiling, ductless heat pump. This home has easy access to schools and buses- you can even walk to the Elementary school. The updated Knowles Park is just at the end of the block- a great place for the kids to play. Shopping at Southgate Centre  or downtown is just a short distance away.  Nanaimo River is closely too with  lots of swimming holes.  Nanaimo has it all. Welcome home!
