Campbell River, 1983 Fairway Drive
Campbell River, 1983 Fairway Drive
Peaceful, welcoming, elegant and inviting describe this special home perfectly.
This home and property is in a neighbourhood of executive family homes just minutes from downtown and all convenient and essential services. The neighbourhood is a nice mix of families and retirees, with a nearby school field for playing, quiet streets for bike riding and green space for walking. It is strategically located to provide arguably the best location on Fairway Drive adjoining the Campbell River Golf and Country club. The property backs on to the fairway of hole number eight and enjoys bright, sunny southern exposure to all the primary living areas with an extensive covered patio and beautifully manicured backyard.
The large, covered entryway to this 2966sqft one level 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home leads into the open-concept living space which includes a spacious living room at the centre of the home with an adjoining gourmet kitchen and comfortable eating nook overlooking the beautiful manicured back yard. There is also a separate dining room perfect for entertaining or large family meals.
To the right of the entryway on the west of the home is a separate den/family room with another gas fireplace complete with custom carved wood mantle and large windows. Set off on its own to the back right of the home is the generous-sized master bedroom. This large, private space features a gas fireplace, two walk-in closets and a spacious ensuite bathroom with a soaker tub, oversize shower with two shower heads, river rock and tile accents, heated towel rack and windows bringing in the natural light. French doors lead out to the back yard patio.
At the front of the home to the other side of the dining room is a bedroom and across the hall from that is a large 2 piece bathroom. On the eastern side of the home are two more bedrooms, plus a laundry room and a large 4 piece bathroom complete with side by side sinks and a door to the outside patio. This is very useful for outdoor entertaining as guests don’t have to go through the house to the bathroom. The laundry room provides access to the mechanical systems which are in a separate small room.
The kitchen has a large bar countertop overlooking the living space with a four burner gas range. Along the wall of the kitchen is more counter space featuring a double sink and under-cabinet lighting over the sink. Large stainless steel appliances complement the granite countertops and a bar fridge with a wine rack on the wall above is a nice addition. The dish washer and wall oven are brand new. A garburator and trash compactor, multiple outlets in both the bar countertop and the wall counter, and a wall of cabinetry make this kitchen a great place for cooking and being with family or entertaining.
A few steps from the entrance is a carpeted, sunken living room perfect for relaxing, watching TV and listening to music. A gas fireplace is featured on one wall with surrounding inset shelving and detailing. The kitchen overlooks the living room from the opposite side. In the far corner of the kitchen and looking out over the back yard is a comfortable eating nook off the kitchen. One of the special touches in this home are the three sets of adjoining French doors leading from the living space out to the covered patio in the back yard. When these doors are all open it brings the outdoors in and creates a beautiful transition space to the private and peaceful gardens. The living space and outdoor patio are wired with a Sonos sound system and the back patio has a natural gas bbq.
On the back eastern corner of the home with access from the backyard patio is a separate room recently converted into a home office during Covid, this could also be a private studio or guestroom. Adjacent to this room is the entrance to the 4 piece bathroom.
Everything in this home was designed with comfort and excellence in mind. All the closets throughout the home are lit; the kitchen cabinetry is over-sized and complemented with rolling rack drawers; the hardwood floors are thick; all the ceilings are over height at 10ft and 11ft (in the sunken living room and family room), adding to the spacious feeling of the home. The clever use of beams and columns create a sense of depth and character in the home as well.
Extra space has been thoughtfully provided for vehicles, boats, etc. The large paved driveway, with a prominent compass point inlay, can easily hold a large number of vehicles for safe off-road parking. The three bay garage features over height ceilings, a double and a single roll-up door with automatic door openers, a gas overhead heater, access to the crawl space and plenty of space for tools and storage. There is access into the home, to the mechanical room and to the side yard from the garage.
The property features beautiful, mature landscaping with flowering shrubs and trees such as dogwood, cherry and rhododendrons. Awe inspiring sequoia trees frame the home. The back yard has plenty of lawn space for playing and opens out to green space which includes a fish-bearing stream at the edge of the golf course. This green space is home to songbirds, frogs and waterfowl throughout the year, creating an unexpected and welcome natural oasis.
The Campbell River Golf Club, including the Velocity Lounge and Driving Range, is just a quick walk away, convenient for a round of golf or an evening drink.
The home is minutes away from the convenience of the city shopping centre, but also only 10 minutes or so to the boat launches at either McIvor Lake or along the oceanfront of Discovery Passage. The Campbell River estuary trails are within bike riding distance.
A feature sheet of all the special details and features of this home is also available.
From relaxed, elegant comfort to space to spread out, this special home would fit a family, a professional couple who love to entertain or a retired couple with visiting family/friends equally.
