New 1,750 sq. ft. Rancher/Bungalow for Sale in Courtenay BC

Looking for a new spacious rancher in Courtenay, BC? We have started construction on a beautiful home which backs onto the Ruth Masters Greenway, part of an extensive trail network along the south shore of the Puntledge River. Imagine having a protected greenway steps away from your home, where you can see the natural forest and enjoy the trails, scenic views, the forested trials, the rare plants and the birds. You can even see the hundreds of salmon spawning from this location in the fall!

You will love the quiet location and the layout of this rancher/bungalow style of home, which includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Walk in through the front door and you can see the modern white kitchen finished off with quartz countertops. The 9 ft ceilings add elegance to the entryway, great room and dining room. This home will be finished with an upscale laminate, a hardy flooring material that keeps its colour and shape even when you have pets in the home. Part of the appeal of this rancher for sale is the covered outside deck, where you can enjoy your morning coffee in privacy, as there are no homes built behind you. The gas fireplace offers efficiency and cost savings. This home is located on Lot 5 on Grayhawk Place in Courtenay, B.C.
