Waterfront Estate in Millidgeville

If some homes have all the bells and whistles, you might say that by comparison 100 Brigadoon Terrace has a full brass band! This luxurious estate sits on 2.6 acres of private landscaped and wooded property with 450 feet of water frontage on the Kennebecasis River.

A concrete and cobblestone driveway leads from the quiet cul-de-sac to the stately home, providing panoramic water views from Grand Bay to Long Island as you approach the 3500-square foot residence. With the partially finished basement the total square footage comes up to 4700 square feet. Outside, the grounds with lush rolling lawns offer more than 300 oversized planted trees, among them apple and cherry trees plus grapevines, blueberry bushes and strawberries.

The stone one-and-a-half storey home features 650 square feet of covered veranda where you and your guests can relax and enjoy glorious sunsets over the water after a day filled with water sports – launch your power boat right on the property, swim at the beach or take your kayak or canoe to nearby Milkish Creek to visit real Saint John sea dogs. Moor your power or sailboat right in front of your home or maybe you’d prefer a private dock, it’s all possible here!

Park the cars in the double, heated and insulated drive-through garage (no backing out) and make your way to the impressive front entrance. Once inside, step onto heated ceramic tile and admire the gracious foyer, elegant staircase and prepare to be amazed at the quality, attention to detail and magnificent features of this estate home.

Maple wood panel walls lead you to the home’s great room where many windows fill the spacious room with sunlight and river views. An oversized wood-burning fireplace with porcelain tile and birds-eye maple surround and mantel is a focal point of the room, providing not only warmth but atmosphere. This handsome room with full height maple raised panel walls map looks like a room straight out of an English Country Manor.

Travel through a second arched doorway to the oversized eat-in kitchen. More heated ceramic tile warms the feet as you prepare meals in your dream kitchen with gorgeous custom maple cabinets, gleaming granite counters, a breakfast bar, a centre island, and a walk-in pantry, all overlooking the river.

Upscale features in the kitchen also include a concealed fridge and dishwasher with doors matching the cabinetry, an appliance garage to neatly store small appliances, quality fixtures, oversized cove mouldings and a built-in sprinkler system (throughout the entire home and garage excluding the second level only).

Adjacent to the kitchen is a magnificent dining room with arched doorway and maple pillars. These pillars, as with all the maple paneling, mantle, base, trim and hardwood in this home, was made from trees cut right here on the property, before being dried and milled. The dining room boasts hardwood floor, plaster crown moulding, large picture windows that look out to the river as well custom french door leading to the back covered deck.

Find three bedrooms on the main level, including a large master suite with hardwood floor, large picture windows (with water views, of course), a walk-in closet with built-in dresser and a stunning oval stained glass window.

The four-piece ensuite bathroom has more heated ceramic tile, a large air tub, an oversized glass and tile walk-in shower, a custom vanity with his and hers sink, custom cabinets, as well as a lovely arched window. One of the children or guest bedrooms also has a walk-in closet and oval stained glass window.

An additional full bathroom with ceramic tile and an acrylic tub and shower, plus a powder room with a pedestal sink are also found on the main floor. Other main-floor features include 10-foot ceilings throughout, oversized cove mouldings, a large mudroom and laundry room with built-in shelves, cabinets and a sink.

Maple extra-wide stairs take you to the turret home-office with many windows and a panoramic view. With the best view of all this large room is also perfect for a study, family room or an additional bedroom is required. The second floor also offers a fourth bedroom and large closet.

A very large fifth bedroom is found in the partially finished basement, which also has a large rec room, a kitchenette, a three-piece bathroom, a wood-stove (with child safety surround), a storage room and unfinished area ideal for a workshop. With safety in mind, the stairs leading to the basement feature two railings – one for children and another higher one for adults. Also, all walls in the home have rounded corners – no sharp edges.

In addition to in-floor heating under all ceramic tile, the home’s main heat source is an electric air to air heat pump offering both heat and central air, plus an air exchanger and state of the art security system. The roofing shingles on this three-year old home come with a 30-year warranty.
