Extraordinary Waterfront Ranch-Style Home
Sometimes, just once in a lifetime, a property comes along that really moves you. A property that's so special you just can't get it out of your mind. A property that provides the lifestyle you've dreamed of and worked so hard towards. This very well might be just that property!
On 1.3 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, this 4500 square foot, one-level ranch-style home in Sagamore Point, Rothesay at 63 Maliseet Drive has everything most of us dream of. An exceptionally high quality, well-built home, architect and engineer designed, with a large 187 foot private beach, sunrise and sunset views... and we're just getting started.
Built in 1981-82, the original owners Peggy and James Mortimer, had the first choice of lots being sold in Sagamore Point, a mature and quiet cul de sac. They specifically choose this location for their new home in which architects strategically positioned the house to view the morning sunrise over Long Island and the evening sunsets over the Kennebecasis River. The modern design, with patio door access from several rooms allows for a natural flow from indoors to the extensive hand-laid stone patio that lines the entire water side of the home. Being built of cedar and more than 1200 vertical square feet of hand-chiseled stone, the construction encompasses nothing but the best! Recent renovations have been extensive making this home better than new! Tasteful, refined and understated are words that come to mind as you peruse the upgrades and additions to the property.
As you enter the spacious slate lined foyer with two double guest closets from the covered entry the first thing you notice is the view! Straight in front of you through an expanse of glass is the width of the Kennebecasis River and well-known Minister Face, rock cliff off Long Island. This generous-sized room features a hand-chiseled stone feature wall matching to the exterior! If several invited guests arrive at the same time, no problem, they won't feel crowded in this inviting entry. Conveniently located off to the side is a spacious powder room with large granite topped vanity.
The spacious great room features soaring ceiling, full wall of glass and two sets of patio doors accessing the stone patio. The gleaming hardwood floors add visual warmth and the full height stone fireplace with granite mantle and raised hearth makes the room so inviting and adds plenty of ambiance. No shortage of "Wow" factor here! Friends will be awestruck as they watch the gleam of the sun on the water and boats glide past as the wind catches their sails.
The oversized modern kitchen gleams with granite counter tops, modern chrome light fixtures, extra deep stainless steel sink with brushed stainless faucet, an abundance of custom cabinetry, another hand-chiseled stone accent behind the built-in buffet, walk-in pantry, huge nine-foot central island with plenty of seating, and top of the line Professional Series stainless steel appliances all included! Appliances include separate stand up freezer/fridge, double wall ovens, 5-burner gas counter tops stove, dishwasher, wine fridge and microwave. Patio doors lead to the stone patio from the kitchen as well. Off the kitchen is a nice-sized butler's pantry which is so convenient when entertaining in the connecting screened sun room! This impressive space has soaring ceiling, screened windows on 3-sides and double doors leading to the patio. The perfect spot for a barbeque while overlooking the beach and the river. The expansive roof gives you protection from the sun and the screened sidewalls allow the breeze to gently drift through. This room is sure to become a favourite gathering space for friends and family!
If you enjoy formal dinner parties, this dining room is sure to impress! At 16 feet by 23 feet it can accommodate the largest dinner parties and with the huge built-in buffet you can store all your dishes, linens and flat ware neatly out of sight.
Down the hallway from the kitchen are two large closets including one walk-in near the side and garage entrance. This section of the house has a home office with a nearby full 3-piece bathroom. This office could be used as a fourth bedroom if you need the extra space as a guest bedroom, family bedroom or possible live-in help! The attached oversized 2-car garage is insulated, completely finished and heated, oh so convenient when you want to do a little detailing to your car in the winter. Off the garage is a mechanical room which houses the furnace, well pump and hot water heater. There is also a built-in storage closet in the garage as well as a generous work area. No shortage of storage space in this home, a solid oak staircase leads to a spacious 250 foot storage room/loft over the garage with maple built-ins.
The master bedroom with French Garden Doors and Phantom screens lead to the stone patio and overlooking Minister's Face is a true retreat. The walk-in closet has an abundance of solid maple built-in drawers and the 5-piece ensuite bath is nothing short of spa-like! With Carrera marble flooring, double vanities, a modern version of a deep soaker Cleopatra tub, European-style private flush and Carrera marble shower with tempered glass door and walls plus rainfall shower head, you'll feel all the stress of the day just melt away!
This bedroom wing also houses two additional bedrooms (one with 3-piece ensuite bath), a family room/den with built-in bookcases & recessed lighting (which could be used as a fifth bedroom) another full 3-piece bathroom with porcelain flooring and a spacious laundry room with cabinetry galore, granite flooring and built-in ironing board!
