IMPRESSIVE ONE-LEVEL WATERFRONT RANCH
Panoramic view from all rooms of this professionally designed, one level, located at 49 Gentleman Lane, Rothesay, eleven year old home located on the beautiful Kennebecasis River in the heart of old Rothesay within walking distance of RCS. This home sits on just over 1/2 acre, with the bordering full acre jointly owned to preserve the view. The interior of this home was designed by Katherine Bacon, listed in "Who's Who In Interior Design" representing the top 100 designers worldwide from 60 countries.
Impeccable is the only way to describe this property with exquisite attention to detail inside and out. The initial view of the exterior gives the impression of an unpretentious shingled Nantucket cottage. Privacy abounds this property protected by rose and cedar hedges at the end of a private lane. Upon entering the home, from the covered portico you pass through the vestibule and foyer to the great room where light and openness abound with window walls looking out onto the Kennebecasis River, Long Island, Drury Cove and beyond.
The great room, dining room and kitchen combine to portray one large comfortable and at the same time elegant open concept space. Interior designer, Katherine Bacon, has added the finishing touch, refining every detail of the interior. The secondary is an exceptional custom fireplace with granite raised hearth, surrounded by windows, featuring built-in lighted curio cabinets down both sides to display your collectables. A custom built, white pickled pine, wall unit and entertainment centre completes the area with lots of space for an over-size concealed TV screen, all of which is included. A built-in illuminated frosted-top pedestal to the right of the foyer displays your favourite object d'art. The formal dining room can comfortably sit ten and enjoys beautiful large windows and direct access to the deck. The large pickled pine china cabinet with illuminated buffet was hand built especially for this home to match the great room entertainment unit. The dining table and china cabinet/buffet are included. Electronic window treatments by Hunter Douglas Silhouette featuring Power Rise on remote!
Colours are purposely light and airy allowing more attention to your decor, furnishings, china, collectables, area rugs etc. The home features solid wood crown mouldings, interior doors & trim throughout as well as white pickled ash hardwood flooring with ceramic in all bathrooms.
The heating system is a top of the line geo-thermal in-floor hot water heat pump providing economical in-floor heating throughout. A paved quiet cul de sac leads to this property which is within walking distance to the Riverside Golf and Country Club.
The huge wrap-around deck with tinted tempered glass railings affords an unobstructed panoramic views. The tinting prevents birds from colliding into the glass rails and it's easier on your eyes when you look out at the water from your lounge chair. A beautiful outdoor Jacuzzi spa tub completes this area.
Landscape designer Carol Chapman has designed the beautiful gardens with flowering shrubs and perennials providing changing Color throughout the summer and evergreens adding textured beauty year round. Meander down hand-laid brick walkways near the shore to admire the perennial beds while the structured vegetable, fruit & cut flower garden is on the south side of the property. A hearty rose hedge follows the entire west side of the property camouflaging the cement retaining wall, which protects the lawn & gardens from the spring freshet.
