A cottage by the water is a dream ... a magnificent 4275-square foot home with all of the creature comforts you could ask for set on 2.06 acres of private, landscaped grounds with a beach on the Kennebecasis River is a dream come true!
Five Riverfront Crescent could be your dream come true. And best of all, at this address you not only have joys of waterfront living, but also the close-by conveniences of town amenities!
This upscale home is set on a very quiet cul-de-sac. A gently sloping driveway lined with mature trees and gorgeous perennials welcomes you to the tranquil setting. Quality, low-maintenance Cape Cod siding and attractive brick combine with stamped concrete walkways and beautiful gardens give the home outstanding curb appeal!
Fantastic layout! The ranch-style layout is perfect and allows for one-level living is you wish to avoid stairs or have any mobility issues with all the everyday living spaces, kitchen, living room, dining room, bedrooms including the master and laundry room all on the main floor! The finished walkout basement is a big plus for overflow and visiting friends and family but this is a home style you can stay in until your 90!
It is a rare find in our area to have one property offering one-level living, privacy, flat yard, acreage, waterfront, panoramic view, beach and deep water anchorage! The most sought after amenities we're asked for!
From the front of the home, follow the wrap-around driveway past the built-in garage to the home's backyard and prepare to be wowed. The lush level lawn leads to a private beach in a protected cove with deep-water anchorage where you can moor a sailboat or power boat. The clean waters of the Kennebecasis River are perfect for swimming, kayak, canoeing, jet skiing and more!
While you're at the beach, turn around and look at the back of the home. With two levels, including the walkout basement, magnificent windows, a wrap-around deck, stately pillars, covered patio and beautiful brick, the sight is stunning. And it only gets better inside ...
The impressive entrance foyer features marble flooring and looks onto a great room with a 15-plus foot cathedral ceiling, huge arched windows to maximize the view, and gleaming hardwood flooring with in-floor hot water radiant heat (found throughout the home - even in the garages!).
The great room has access to the huge wrap around deck and offers panoramic views of Meenan's Cove, the Kennebecasis River and the mountains beyond. Open to the great room is an oversized formal dining room perfect for gatherings of any size. Dine with a river view every night! Or, enjoy informal meals in the large eat-in custom Avondale kitchen.
The sunny kitchen features a cathedral ceiling, large windows, ceramic tile flooring, and a central island with a Jenn-Air cooktop with down draft vent (grill & griddle). There's an abundance of custom cabinets, a lovely glass tile backsplash, a built-in desk, and quality appliances including a side-by-side fridge with panels to match the cabinetry. Cooking and dining will be a treat in this kitchen!
The master suite is conveniently located on the main level. Like the great room, this bedroom has a 15-plus foot cathedral ceiling, arched windows to fully appreciate the view, and patio door access to the deck. There's a stunning oversized walk-in closet and a spa-like five-piece ensuite bathroom with a deep soaker air tub, custom vanity with double sinks and a built-in hidden laundry hamper, as well as a separate room for the walk-in tile and glass shower and flush.
A second bedroom on the main level has a cathedral ceiling as well, double closet and a lovely front-facing Palladian window overlooking the gardens. The spacious den with a custom-built media cabinet can serve as a third main-level bedroom if required or main floor office. On this floor you'll also find a powder room as well as a three-piece bathroom with a combination tub/shower.
An extra 1599-square feet of finished living space is found in the full daylight walk-out basement (bringing the total square footage to 4275) where you'll find a massive rec room, large windows galore, doors to a backyard covered patio and a very convenient summer kitchen! This fully equipped kitchen is ideal for entertaining on the patio and the waterfront. If friends or family are visiting from away and staying in one of the lower level bedrooms, this kitchen will come in handy year round! The basement also offers two large bedrooms with a walk-in closets and water views, as well as a full three-piece bathroom. If two additional bedrooms are not required in the lower level, one can be used for a home gym, craft room or home office. This level has storage galore, a cold room, work shop and access to the built-in second garage. The 3-bay garage layout is every man's dream featuring a two-car attached garage in addition to the single built-in garage. All has in-floor heating!
