Executive waterfront family home in The Moorings of Millidgeville
Launch a kayak or canoe from your own private backyard beach. Swim in the clean waters of the St. John River. Row a tender to your own sailboat, moored within sight at The Royal Kennebeccasis Yacht Club, a premier facility for boaters. Watch the sun rise and set over the water. Roast marshmallows at a blazing beach bonfire. See sails from passing boats flutter in the wind. Smell the fresh air. Hear the gulls cry. Feel stress melt away as you soak in the peace and tranquility of waterfront living.
Have all of this and be mere minutes from schools, shopping, and restaurants.
