The best of both worlds: peek-a-boo views of the ocean, 1/2 block to Dallas road and yet quiet serenity in your own home. This townhouse is located in Dunelm Village - a terrific neighbourhood with glorious gardens, splashes of vibrant colour and a great community. With almost 2000 ft split over two levels this is the perfect home for those wanting to downsize from their family home. The main level has a large kitchen with eating nook, a dining room, media room/den, and a sunken entertainment-sized living room (with open vaulted ceiling and fireplace) which leads to a bright, sunny private patio. Stairs lead you to the 2nd level with a lovely private south-facing deck, laundry, a large guest bedroom with adjoining bathroom and a master bedroom with pass through closet and oversized ensuite. Dunelm Village is all about community - friendly neighbours everywhere. The strata is very proactive and well run. Solid finances. Dog or cat welcome. Quiet living by the sea. Sublime! OH Sat 11-1
