Waterfront homes for sale near Parksville: French Creek Real Estate

Can you hear the waves gently rolling along the shoreline? At your home in Bayview Estates, you’ll be able to hear and see the ocean because it’s right at your doorstep. This subdivision has several lots available, with several right on the shores of the Strait of Georgia. The rest are literally across the street, so you can enjoy the ocean no matter which property you choose.

From your custom-built waterfront home, the possibilities are endless. Imagine waking up not only to the sounds of the waves but to fresh air instead of city-polluted air from high traffic. This subdivision offers a peaceful home that fits your lifestyle and helps you get away from the busy and hectic life.

Steps from the marina means that fishing for fresh salmon and other fish can happen on your own terms, whenever the desire strikes. Nothing compares to fresh seafood for dinner! Even if you aren’t the type to go out on the ocean, nothing beats reading a good book on your personal beach. For properties that don’t have a beach, there’s a seaside park that everyone can enjoy.

You designed your home exactly how you dreamed. Your walk-in closet, ensuite, cathedral entry, covered deck, and two car garage enhance your daily routines for convenience and pleasure.

Downstairs you have a legal suite that is currently bringing in extra income, which is coming in handy for your son’s college courses. Knowing there is a place for family to stay during visits when it isn’t rented out makes you feel good.

And what about that kitchen? You can’t beat granite countertops, top grade hardwood flooring, soft-touch drawers, and a view of the floor to ceiling fireplace. A beautiful and functional kitchen is a dream come true.

When you walk outside, you are greeted by smiling faces because everyone is living their dream life, right here on Vancouver Island. It’s a relaxed, social, and positive environment. Whether you have a small family or are a retiree, French Creek is a perfect place to call home.

The community vibe extends to the local businesses and amenities, too. French Creek Bistro and Sam’s Sushi are good restaurants. There are churches, a pharmacy, a pub, a seafood store, and lots of parks and beaches to visit. A small community, but one filled with friendly faces.

Since it is a small and private community, many residents rely on the amenities in Parksville. No need to worry, it’s just a short drive to restaurants, medical buildings, shops, mini golf, and more beautiful beaches. The best part? Your home is steps away from the French Creek Marina, making going out on the ocean a breeze.

If you love the outdoors, you will not get bored. The ocean, forests, and greenery offer chances for peaceful walks, energizing hikes, and refreshing swims. Golf is a popular sport in French Creek, too.
