I’m very excited about our exciting new Global Luxury Listings in Saint Andrews By the Sea.  219 King St, MLS#NB013168 at $2,250,000 is a stunning historic property circa 1897 which has been meticulously restored to it’s former glory.  With stunning chandeliers, spacious rooms, numerous cozy fireplaces, intriguing architectural details, a true 5-star chefs-kitchen and 1.1 acres of total privacy in century-old garden, this property is dressed to impress!  All overlooking Kingsbrae Garden, a multi-award winning 27 acre horticultural masterpiece and the Bay of Fundy beyond.

  

  

The second Saint Andrews property is no less spectacular than the first located at 208 Prince of Wales Street, MLS#NB013165 priced at $1,750,000.  Located near the Algonquin Resort, it has an amazing custom kitchen with commercial quality S/S appliances, huge island, breakfast bar, walk-in pantry, soaring 14 foot ceiling with clerestory windows and patio access. There are two grand staircases, one circular and one turned and all bedrooms with full ensuite baths, some with balconies overlooking the garden, several with fireplaces.   There is also a convenient staff quarters, over-sized 2-car attached garage with heated floor and a private flower and herb garden.   The original 1870’s house is magnificently restored and the 2004 addition is tastefully in keeping with the era!

  

  

Congratulations to our dear friend Lexxi McMackin who is busy helping her mother and father pack boxes up at 20 Antler Crescent, Quispamsis MLS# NB011319.  Lexxi’s house is another one that sold on the first showing ($379,900) and she has a very quick closing.  Don’t overdo it Lexxi, slow and steady wins the race!  One box at a time!

  

Charlie is excited about his new  listing located at 91 Stockfarm Road, MLS NB011483.  Just listed last week and sold this week on the first showing with all conditions met today!  This is the fourth property Mama and Charlie have listed in the past few weeks that has sold on the first showing.  Way to go guys!!!  Another happy seller!

It’s been a heck of a week with Mama and Charlie negotiating hard on one of the large estate size heritage properties in Rothesay.   Their local buyer loves the turn of the century grandeur, the spaciness and interior detail of these properties.  I hope you two ate your Wheaties this morning because you’re going to need them.  Hang in there.

Calling for rain this weekend so needless to say Big Buddy Bacon won’t get any swimming in!  Boohoo. I live for a good refreshing swim.  I have been walking each night before dark at Allison with Mama and Nicholas.  We’ve bumped into some interest pooches, many of whom love to run and play with us.  We are very social!  Have a great weekend.

Your pal,

Big Buddy Bacon

What’s driving our brisk market this summer?  This seems to be the question on the tip of everyone’s tongue lately.  Is this the extraordinary weather, is it an influx of new jobs, or possibly New Brunswickers moving home from out west to retire?  Mama says it’s all the above coming together to bring around a strong market that has been quiet for far too long.  Typically July and August are the two quietest months of the year for sales in New Brunswick.  We usually have about 8 weeks of true summer and then it’s over so most of us are boating, camping, hiking, biking, barbequing, swimming or relaxing at the beach but we are not out shopping for anything in our short summer window!  We know we’ll blink our eyes and summer will be over!  But not so this year, from the moment summer started it’s been hotter than we can remember on record and it just seems to keep coming  (it was 37 C on our back deck yesterday!!!)  Way to hot for Big Buddy Bacon!  This is the busiest Mama and Charlie have seen it during the summer in many years with four recent sales on the very first showing appointment.  Hope it keeps up as we head into fall.  Nicholas and I are here as their cheering squad.

Congratulations to the new owner of 19 Upper Deck Lane, just closed today.  Paul, Cathy Leblanc and her little shiatsu, Chewy Leblanc are very excited about their new home and we wish them nothing but the best as they enjoy  their new waterfront lifestyle overlooking the water at Drury Cove!

 

Have a wonderful weekend, another hot one but I’m enjoying the cooler nights!  Our thoughts are with our American friends in the south as they battle Hurricane Florence!  Be safe !

Your Pal,

So very happy to have our waterfront listing at 355 Model Farm Road SOLD.  What a lovely large property with beach, deep water mooring for a boat and lovely family home!  so very important after this year’s flooding that it’s so nice and high from the river.   Lucky the new owner of this handsome property!  We wish them many years of happy memories here!

Exciting new listing at 20 Antler Crescent of my friend Lexxi McMackin.  Lexxi is selling her beautiful 4-5 bedroom family home overlooking the Kennebecasis River and going to new digs.  It has two cozy fireplaces, high ceilings and huge sunny windows.  There is 1911 square feet on the main level including the loft and a beautifully finished daylight basement bringing the total finished square footage to 3800!  Nice size for a big girl like Lexxi (pretty Bernese Mountain Dog) or a big boy like Buddy!  Check out the details on this site and call Mama for a closer look.

  

Tired of paying rent? Time to downsize or move from a dated home to a stylish new property?  This could be it!  we’ve just listed two brand new townhouses, a two bedroom with computer nook at 16 Wild Fox $175,000  and a three bedroom at 18 Wild Fox $184,00.  Both have open concept, modern kitchen, second floor laundry, full bath plus powder room, oversized master bedroom with huge walk-in closet and attached garage.  Perfect location for young professionals, first time home buyers, empty nester and young families!  Best of all, there are no monthly condo fees!!!  Now you can have it all!

 

Hot weather is still upon us. Mama had to trim back my coat again which we usually never do in September but I just can’t take the heat this year.  I’m still hoping to go for a swim this weekend.  The water is still warm and there’s nothing I enjoy more than a good refreshing swim!  Hope you have a good one.
