The dictionary defines “paradise” as “any place of complete bliss, delight and peace”! The dictionary defines “peninsula” as a large mass of dry land projecting into a body of water. Those two words describe this property to a Tee!
Build your dream home or vacation cottage on your own private waterfront estate with year-round access! A truly rare and unique offering, this private peninsula offers you island style living with city conveniences in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. This luxurious estate property offers you all the security and privacy of island living. However, unlike an island you have all the convenience and ease of quick year round access to downtown!
Browse through any international property magazine and you may find islands for sale that are only accessible via boat, helicopter or airplane but you have to agree that island living with easy causeway access within a charming historic city are certainly few and far between!
This peninsula with over 1000’ of shoreline is almost 100% surrounded by water and incorporates approximately 5 acres of high land (the main point) on which to build your new home. The private access road is on a causeway that crosses the lower land. The lower land is covered with water during the Spring Freshet but is a haven for ducks, blue heron, deer and other wildlife for much of the year. Your private roadway is high and accessible year round. The main building site has underground power and telephone lines already installed in protective ducts.
The property is mostly wooded featuring native hardwood and evergreen trees including oak, jack pine, white pine, fir, spruce, cedar, birch and maple. Much of the shoreline is rocky and there are two lovely sandy beaches plus a large gravel beach perfect for swimming, launching your canoe or maybe having a bonfire or an evening marshmallow roast. When you own the waterfront, that choice is yours! A fabulous home-site area is already cleared and excavated in the rock, offering over 270-degree water views.
The Royal Kennebecasis Yacht Club anchorage is your neighbour to the East and this spectacular century plus yacht club is a beehive of activity during the boating season. Access to the Atlantic Ocean is just 3 miles from the site via the St. John River, the famous Rhine of America.
Our Regional Hospital, New Brunswick’s #1 Trauma Centre, with its celebrated coronary care unit and our City’s university, UNBSJ, are less than a 5 minute drive.
Westerly sunsets over the water are nothing short of magnificent from this location. Custom design your new home to capture the spectacular sunrises and sunsets! Do you want your home to be environmentally friendly? The site enjoys the heat of the sun from when it first rises in the morning until it sets at night. If you wish to incorporate solar heating or geo-exchange air conditioning and heating into your new home you can do it here. You can build your dream home on any number of locations on the high land. This property is zoned for rural residential use.
