Inviting Home in the Heart of Old Rothesay
As you drive down Grove Avenue, the Kennebecasis River glistens in the distance. Round the turn and another beautiful sight catches your eye. On the left hand side, flanked by trees, sits a pretty Cape Cod painted a lovely moss green with pale yellow shutters and crisp white trim. With lush green lawns, perennial beds, shrubs and flagstones, the home is picture perfect.
Pull in the driveway and make your way around to the side of the home. Pass through the painted yellow gate and be prepared for a wonderful surprise... tranquility and so much space. With mature woods outlining the large ¾ acre property, you're met with privacy galore. Sunlight filters through the trees and highlights the lovely flower beds, flagstone steps, and leaves dancing patterns on the hand-laid brick patio.
Gaze down the lawn and discover another delight. Beyond an elegant black wrought-iron fence sits a large and very inviting in-ground pool. Inlaid bricks surround the pool and provide plenty of space for lounge chairs and patio furniture. Green lawn, shrubs and perennials add country beauty to this very private space as does the lovely pool house.
Walking the property, you'll also notice that this home is much larger than it appears from the road. A large wing unseen from Grove Avenue adds plenty of space to the four-bedroom, 2 ½ bath 2700 square foot home. You'll also notice a tranquil covered porch off the living room as well as a recent addition of an 8-person hot tub. Oh, the lifestyle that accompanies this property!
Inside, quality, character and charm abounds in this move-in ready home. The front entrance features attractive stone steps leading the entrance foyer with coat closet. A French door leads to the spacious side entrance mud room which opens onto the family room and kitchen. On the main floor, you'll find a large family room lined with hardwood flooring and crown moulding. This space is flooded with sunlight through many large windows. The walls are lined with paneled wainscoting and window seats flank the air-tight wood-burning high efficiency stove.
Hardwood flooring continues to the eat-in kitchen, where you'll find plenty of crisp white cabinets, some with lovely glass doors, and gleaming black granite tiled counter tops. Quality stainless steel appliances, including a stove, fridge, microwave and dishwasher, all included for added value. Another recent addition is the convenient pantry!
Adjacent to the kitchen find a lovely dining room. Large picture windows let in plenty of natural light, highlighting two beautiful built-in corner china cabinets, paneled wainscoting, crown moulding and hardwood flooring.
Another main-floor feature is the spacious living room. Beautifully painted in a soothing ocean blue, the central point of this room is a wood-burning fireplace surrounded by a lovely wood mantle. You'll find more large windows, crown moulding and deep baseboards, as found throughout the house. French doors lead outside to a lovely covered veranda.
Like all of the bathrooms in this house, the main floor powder room is exquisite. Granite tiles line the floor while marble tops the vanity. The laundry room is located on the main floor as well and modern front loading washer and dryer are included with this home.
Up the hardwood stairs with pure wool runner, find a lovely master bedroom with plenty of windows, newly built-in dressers, walk-in closet and a lovely private ensuite bathroom. Here you'll find a deep soaker tub, pedestal sink, flush, ceramic wall tiles and dark marble flooring.
Three additional bedrooms are found on this second floor, as well a built-in laundry cabinet, and another stunning bathroom with more marble flooring, a marble-topped vanity and an air tub with shower.
The full basement is spacious and provides perfect additional storage space. It is completely insulated and sheet-rocked and has electric baseboard heat. The basement has a walk-out feature leading to the attached garage.
A spacious, quality built, move-in ready home loaded with charm and character, gorgeous private grounds with an in-ground pool and pool house, all within minutes walking distance to the Rothesay Common, the Rothesay Yacht Club, cafes, many churches and all three-levels of schooling as well as RNS.
