Rare find, One Level Ranch Home on 9 Private Acres!
From the moment you pass through the lion topped entrance gates along the paved meandering tree lined drive, you know you're about to view something special! This property has the most private and tranquil setting on nine picturesque acres that I have seen in quite some time! Your own private piece of paradise! Located only minutes from the town centre of Quispamsis, shops, markets, restaurants etc. and fantastic highway access puts you in the heart of Saint John within 15 to 20 minutes.
The circular driveway leads to a large one level ranch-style home with a layout designed for easy everyday living. This custom home was built by Queen Construction and designed in detail to embrace modern amenities with old world charm. Some of the features of this 3714 square foot home include minimum nine foot ceilings, crown mouldings, substantial trim work, oversized windows, hardwood and ceramic flooring. The entrance foyer is large and impressive, setting the tone for what's to come! If several people arrive at the same time for a visit or dinner party, no problem, this comfortable foyer can easily accommodate them.
Double French doors lead into the formal dining room off the foyer with two nice-sized windows overlooking the front yard. The size of this room will allow for easy serving at the table while guests are seated making dinner parties a breeze! On the other side of the foyer is the home office/den with hardwood flooring and built-in illuminated custom bookcase. A single French door leads to the four-seasons sunroom and what a sun room it is! With twelve foot cathedral ceilings, ceramic tile flooring and stunning views of the grounds and pond, this is sure to be a favourite place to sit in the sun of this twelve-year old home. Garden doors lead down large stone stairs from the sunroom to the gardens and grounds beyond.
Accessed from the extra-wide hallway off the foyer is the living room or parlour. This room features hardwood flooring, crown moulding and a propane fireplace nestled in an antique mantle with built-in mirror and flush mounted brick hearth and surround. Patio doors here access the trellised deck with ivy covered columns which turn a gorgeous shade of red in autumn. This deck (stretching the full width of the home) overlooks the meadows and one of the ponds on the property. A lovely powder room with antique vanity and original marble tops is conveniently located off the main hallway.
One of the crowning jewels of this home is the stunning kitchen! Spacious and oh so custom, this well-appointed room is sure to please the most discerning home chef! The kitchen cabinetry with seventeen inch crown moulding is antique, removed from another building, installed here and this kitchen was built around them. So handsome, so unique! Granite countertops gleam, double sink with oversized window above, ceramic tile flooring, huge eating area and charming wrought iron and chrome stove (which has been converted to electric). All kitchen appliances are included for added value. The large central island, with antique pedestals and shaped like a grand piano, has granite counter top, second sink, breakfast bar seating and gas countertop stove.
The main floor master bedroom is spacious with oversized windows and garden doors leading to a covered deck. This room features a walk-in closet and a newly renovated stylish four-piece ensuite bath with double sinks and an oversized shower. The nice-sized second bedroom second features two separate double sized closets and direct garden door access to the deck overlooking the scenic property. A third bedroom with nice-sized window and double closet is located near the back entrance
The back door of this home is accessed by a covered entrance straight into the oversized mud room with ceramic tile flooring, bead board wainscoting, coat closet and sunny window. This mud room has generous space for a seating area, so convenient when removing winter boots! The laundry room with built-in cabinetry, sink, ceramic tile flooring and sunny window is located off the mud room.
Enough about the house, time to describe the yard. This property is one hundred per cent private, surrounded by evergreen and deciduous woodlands, the only feature that can be seen from the street is the paved driveway leading through the entrance gates. Private but not too remote with neighbours all along both sides of the street. The land consists of pretty meadows and two nice-sized ponds, one is visible from the house and the other is on a lower area with a natural waterfall. The property is easy care with a small brick contained perennial garden so no need to fuss for hours in the garden to keep this property looking pristine, add a few entrance planters and you've got one of the most attractive properties in our area! The meadows can be mowed if you wish or left natural, either way their picture perfect!
The garage is huge at 36 feet x 72 feet with a 14 foot ceiling and can serve a multitude of purposes, perfect for the car collector, storing motorcycles, boats, canoes, snowmobiles etc. there's even room for your trailer or motorhome! If you're into dogs this is the perfect structure for agility dog training all winter long! If you enjoy restoring antique cars you'll appreciate the heated work shop within the garage. If your dream is to own a hobby farm and keep a few horses this is permissible in this area and walling off part of the garage can easily make a section of it a well-constructed barn.
