Great to see the sun shine as we wind down these last precious weeks of summer but our lawn is getting pretty dry as is our neighbours!!!  Hope to enjoy a sunny weekend especially as Mama has clients in from out of the country who will be seeing Southern NB at it’s best.  She’s been telling them about our beautiful summers with the fresh breeze off the Bay of Fundy which means low humidity for us which is such a treasure in the summer!  Makes us feel really spoiled!

Nicholas has a nice visit to our 15.8 acres on the Meenans Cove Road yesterday with the guys from Design Art Signs who do our large display signs.  Gorgeous big property with majestic virgin woods and huge trees along Mathews Cove on the Kennebecasis River.  Endless possibilities with this size of property as a few waterfront lots, some waterfront and some water access lots or keep the entire thing for an estate size property.

  Nicholas enjoys a fresh breeze off the water.

Awesome new listing in Rothesay at 15 Clark Road with huge very private yard, well-kept house with inviting covered verandah and best of all it’s all fenced!  This is a double whammy as 1/it keeps the deer out of your garden and 2/ it’s perfect for small children and pets who would enjoy to freely roam the yard with no fear of wondering off.

   Impressive entrance to the property.    Lovely large flat yard and lots of privacy!

I have a lucky friend living at this address named Ibiza, a beautiful Irish Wolfhound.  See my photo and video attached and you’ll see why Ibiza needs a big yard!  She so tall she makes Big Bud feel like a midget!                                                                                                                                                          Ibiza resting at home.

Oliver Ouellet enjoyed a visit with him Mama Amy to 546 Seeley’s Cove Road today.  Loving the beautiful weather and the awesome ocean view!                                                                                                            

Wishing you an awesome weekend.  If you see me out and about in  my red truck be sure to say hello!

Excited about our new Millidgeville listings!  466 Pelton Road is a spacious executive home with interesting features, a lovely flat yard, awesome river view all the way to Gondola Point and best of all it comes with beach rights!!!  You know how much Buddy Bacon loves the beach.  Nicholas and I could swim here every day, Mama could light up bon fires at night, Papa could do some fishing, the list goes on…  Great value, well-priced!

View from 466 Pelton Road

66 Anchorage Avenue is the last building lot available on the right hand side of the road with water view.  The view is awesome of Grand Bay, South Bay, St. John River and the town of Westfield on distant shore!  Perfect place to build your dream home with highly recommended schools in the area.

Another bidding war this week, that makes two so far this month!  Lots of excitement with our 118 Duck Pond Road going $16,000 over the asking price, all closed now!  Who knew this would happen in Gardner’s Creek?  Had to be the view and the beautiful sandy beach that came with the cottage.  More soon on our latest bidding war which Mama has been aggressively negotiating for the past two days and well into the nights!  Accepted offer today, now to get the conditions met!  Will keep you posted.

118 Duck Pond Road

Busy weekend with open houses this Sunday including three in Rothesay with a high-end executive home at 229 Eriskay Drive, 1pm – 2:30, exceptional value at 241 Eriskay Drive 1pm – 2:30 and nicely finished garden home at 26 Kaitlyn Street 3 pm- 4:30.  As well we’ll have our waterfront condominium at 21 Upper Deck Lane, Drury Cove from 3pm – 4:30.  Supposed to be a wet weekend so drop in if you get a chance, all gorgeous homes!

Enjoy your weekend and try to stay dry!  Our gardens, ponds, rivers and wells really need this rain!

We had a rare treat last weekend when a 6 month old black lab pup named Puck was walking the trail with his family and came down to the beach to say hello and get his feet wet in the water. Puck loved the water and he would splash, play and wade up to his belly but he questioned if he could float and was just too nervous to take that first plunge. He couldn’t swim and needed some lessons! Yes, you’re reading this correctly. Nicholas and I took on the project with Nicholas diving in repeatedly after a stick and I just went out over my head gently cruising up and down the serf riding up and down on the small waves, showing how much fun we have and how relaxing it is. I think Nicholas was the one that got Puck over the hump as he had him sooo excited about jumping in and getting the stick that finally Puck just took a leap of faith and went for it. Whoa, right in, no problem he was swimming! Now that first swim was short but it was a good start. We kept calling out encouragement, “You can do it Puck. You were built for this with your webbed feet! Go puck go! Yay, that’s it boy, woof, woof, woof, you’re swimming!” We all had so much fun and were exhausted that night from all the excitement. We went right to bed after supper and got rested up for another great adventure of whatever would lie ahead tomorrow.

  Last one in is a rotten egg!  Bet you can’t catch me!

Mama and Amy are happy to have an accepted offer on their listing on 71 Queen Street in St. Andrews. Beautiful home although very deceiving in size from the street but with a huge interior and view of the water from the deck and the hot tub. Way to go girls!

71 Queen Street, St Andrews

Mama is very excited about her fabulous new high-end waterfront listing on the Kennebecasis River with the crème de la crème of Wolf kitchen appliances and a kitchen that’s a chef’s dream! Happy the puppy being served anything from this grand kitchen and if your mama is a home chef then all the better. I like the stone fireplace, master on the main level, heated floors and air conditioning but I LOVE the fact that it’s right on the river and Big Bud could just jump right in whenever his heart desired! I could see Nicholas diving off the end of the EZ dock too. Bring on the summer fun in the sun!

  Just as attractive from the back as the front.

That’s what I call a home chef’s kitchen!

  Sit back and watch the boats cruise by.

Have a great weekend and watch for Nicholas and I out and about in my shiny red SUV. Notice I say my SUV but Nicholas is always welcome along for the drive!

Your pal,

Happy New Brunswick Day long weekend from Buddy Bacon and his trusty sidekick, Nicholas! Hopefully we get some nice weather! If you work as hard as I do you will appreciate a few days off over the long weekend! But, being in real estate doesn’t necessarily mean a few days off as I was told when I came into the business, its 24/7 (just like Jeff). So when that phone rings, that email arrives or that text beeps I’m just like Mama, I hop to, off and running, ready to help another client sell or buy their next house! We’ll be heading to the cottage for the weekend but I’m always ready to roll (in my shiny black and white suit) and Mama keeps an outfit handy, as we’re never more than 20 minutes from the Harbour Bridge! Many a day I’ve seen her jump into a business suit and into the car to happily head out for a showing. Some of her biggest sales have taken place this way. She loves showing excited buyers the stunning homes we have listed here in Southern New Brunswick. It’s always a treat!

    All packed up and ready to roll!

Must be sure to leave some room for Nicholas!

Hope to see you around.

Your pal
