Amazing live/work opportunity! Have you ever dreamed of owning a lovely, quiet, rural property where you can live comfortably and carry on business economically? The former home of the iconic Wooden Nickel antique shop which ran successfully as a family business for 35 years is just such a place. The owners retired and closed the shop in 2009 but have continued to live in and enjoy their family home until now - it's time for their next adventure. The property is 0.64 acres with wide frontage on and easy access from Hilliers Rd. which is a connector road to Highway 4 between Qualicum Beach and Port Alberni. The building offers a charming 2 bed, 2 bath home above a 5000 s.f. shop efficiently heated with 2 woodstoves and 2 heatpumps and the C-1 zoning allows a wide range of uses. The original character building was constructed around 1912 and has been carefully and sensitively maintained, expanded and renovated over the years. Opportunities like this don't come along often - act now!
