Tucked away just above Little Qualicum River Falls, this lovely 5 bedroom 3 bathroom house is situated on 2.5 acres and at 2,972 square feet is rural living at its finest. Its rustic elegance inside has been infused by its surroundings, highlighting the outside and bringing it in with an abundance of light, and window-framing the mature mixed Pacific forest within which it is placed. Harvested from a sustainable Vancouver Island forestry, Red Alder wide plank flooring grounds the three stories with character; concrete kitchen countertops have mixed in more of the local environment; and greeting you at the front door are repurposed old growth bridge timbers, which all accentuate this home's heartbeat. This peaceful acreage is a stone's throw from Little Qualicum River, and the falls can be heard from the back porch. This well constructed home has an expansive wrap around deck, high ceilings, and numerous energy efficiencies. This healthy, hearty home is not to be missed!
