Zeballos, 103 Maquinna Avenue

Zeballos, 103 Maquinna Avenue

This attractive log home, originally constructed in 1982, is situated on one of the larger riverside properties on the banks of the Zeballos River. The small coastal hamlet of Zeballos is located on Vancouver Island approximately 14 nautical miles from the open west coast Pacific Ocean and one of the premier fishing regions on Vancouver Island. It is 17 nautical miles from Tahsis, a small coastal community in the neighbouring inlet to the south.

This 1700sqft home has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The primary living room on the main floor overlooks the river and has direct access via sliding doors to an expansive, partially covered riverside deck. A floor to ceiling stone fireplace separates the living room from the kitchen and adjacent dining area. There is also a mud room/laundry room, three piece bathroom and spacious master bedroom with a 2 piece ensuite.

The fireplace is faced on three sides with local stone and on the living room side there is a freestanding wood-burning fireplace. The side facing the kitchen is finished in old brick and has a built in Genair range and oven unit.

There is mixed flooring throughout the living spaces, with laminate in the living areas, tile in the hallways and bathrooms and carpet in the bedrooms. The vaulted ceilings are finished in beautiful tongue and groove clear cedar.

An open stair case leads to a loft at the upper level, adjacent to which are two generous sized bedrooms. There are two dormers on each side of the home.

This is a nice, level 0.25 acre property which is landscaped. The area directly in front of the home has a retaining wall down one side and is fenced on the other two sides.

Next to the home is a 24x34ft outbuilding. A closed shop takes up 1/3 of the space and the rest is an enclosed carport. The shop has a concrete floor, electrical service and a wood stove.

Both the home and the shop/carport have cedar shingle roofs.

There is a separate woodshed.

The home uses Shaw Direct satellite service for entertainment media.  There is 125 amp electrical service and electric space heaters.

This is a beautiful setting on the banks of the Zeballos River. The water system in the area is abundant with wildlife and home to at least three species of salmon and resident trout. It is very common in the fall to watch the black bears and bald eagles feeding on migrating salmon right out front of the property.
