Many of us dream of living on the waterfront! Not just any waterfront but with a home and land that runs far up off the water so we never have to worry about flooding in severe record breaking freshets! And not just any water but fresh water that’s warm in the summer, attached to inland water ways that travel for miles up river for sailing and power boating, a property with deep water mooring and dock where you can sit your boat right in front of your own home!!! A property gently sloping towards our own private sand/gravel beach where lazy summer days are spent soaking up the sun, quietly cutting through the water in a canoe or kayak or watching the sunset over a bon fire with friends and family! This is what 355 Model Farm Road, Quispamsis offers and more.
With 1.8+ treed and landscaped acres the property is large enough to grant us our desired privacy but not too overwhelming to care for. The front of the property provides mature landscaping and the rear is partially treed leading to the water.
Owning a piece of land like this is one thing but this inviting well-built, 2846 square foot home plus finished basement is an important part of the overall picture here. Tastefully renovated, the nice-sized foyer with modern light fixtures, tile floor and custom wainscoting sets the stage upon entrance. From the moment you open the door, there it is, that all important water view, visible straight through the oversized living room windows. This room features hardwood flooring, built-in storage and cosy wood-burning stove, perfect on cool nights and a welcome feature during a power failure.
The renovated kitchen has tile floor and cream coloured cabinetry with granite sink, instant hot water and stainless steel appliances including home chefs favourite feature ‘Double Ovens’! Now you can bake and roast at the same time so go ahead, invite your friends and family over. The kitchen is open to your choice of a casual eating area or formal dining, whichever lifestyle you choose. This nice-sized room open onto a side deck with glass rails facing the water view, the perfect location for your barbeque.
Down the hallway with panel wainscoting, new style doors and hardware we come to two bedrooms conveniently located on the main level across from the full bathroom with tub/shower. This is the perfect set up for older children, visiting guests or elderly family members. The mud room with tile floor and modern built-in lockers accesses the attached garage.
Up the staircase we find the master suite with private balcony and views for miles up the river. This room features hardwood flooring, large walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom with oversized tiled shower. How sweet to wonder out onto your balcony first thing in the morning, breath deep the fresh air as you watch the sunrise over the water to the haunting sound of the loon. Adjoining this room is a nice-sized nursery if you have small children or a great location for crafts room or second home office if you require two.
The lower walkout level is completely finished and also features good-sized windows and views of the water. Here we find a family room or rec room, gym, fourth bedroom, third full bathroom, storage room and home office or fifth bedroom.
The car enthusiast is going to love this property as we have not only the attached 24’ x 24’ two-car garage but also a second 24’ x 26’ detached two-car garage!!! Plenty of room here for your SUV, half-ton, sports or vintage car, motorcycle, snowmobile, kayak, etc.!
For added value this property includes the stainless steel fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave, washer, dryer, all blinds and drapery hardware, central vac and garage remotes. Please note that the drapes are excluded from this listing.
The home has a 200 amp electrical entrance, electric heat, central vac and is all wired for generator hookup.
If you’ve been thinking of a waterfront cottage you may want to reconsider as a property like this provides the best of both worlds every day, all close to desired amenities! Live your waterfront dream only minutes from shopping, restaurants, country market and more.
