There’s absolutely nothing as invigorating, refreshing or relaxing as waking up at your private oceanfront sanctuary to the fresh smell of salt air and evergreens, the cry of the gulls as they swoop and soar across the tides and calming swish as waves crest and break along the shore! Located on a quiet cul de sac just beyond the wharf of Seeley’s Cove this alluring property at 76 Holland Road claims all this and more. From the moment you enter through the whimsical custom wrought iron entrance gates along the double paved driveway the idea that this is a special place fills your senses. The landscaped property with flat manicured lawns gives way to a private beach with a deck overlooking the shoreline. This beach is the perfect place to enjoy a bonfire on warm summer nights as the refreshing Bay of Fundy breeze caresses your face. Relax on the shore-front deck with a cool drink as you watch the lobster boats return to the wharf with their daily fresh catch to be later enjoyed with friends as you share this world famous, Bay of Fundy delicacy! Conveniently located just five-ten minutes from the town of St. George with grocery, hardware, pharmacy and liquor stores, bakery, schools, banks and churches meeting all your immediate needs including Tim Hortons for that double/double fix! Drive less than thirty minutes to the USA border town of Calais, Maine to the west or the historic city of Saint John, NB to the east, you are in the middle of all that nature has to offer but yet close to everything!
As you enter the huge foyer via the covered entrance you will note not only the spaciousness but the ceramic tile flooring with mosaic inlays. On this main floor we have the great room with two-story soaring ceiling, huge windows overlooking the water, hardwood flooring and the stunning two-story stone wood-burning fireplace. Behind the fireplace is a cozy den also with hardwood flooring, four sunny windows and stone accents, the perfect place to curl up and watch your favourite movie or catch up on the latest news. On this floor as well you will find two nice-sized bedrooms that share a full four-piece bathroom. The utility with the water pump and laundry is located on this main floor.
This home boasts not one but two staircases leading to the second level. A hardwood staircase leads from the great room to the master bedroom with walk-in closet and home office area. This room has accent walls of stone, stunning views of the ocean and overlooks the great room below. The huge five-piece bathroom measuring 12 ½ feet x 18 feet on this level serves as an ensuite to the master bedroom and is accessed to the hallway as well. The ensuite has porcelain flooring, two pedestal sinks, separate shower and oversized two-person whirlpool tub. Over the tub soars the eight-sided cupola with blue heron weathervane as seen from the entrance gates. This is a true cupola with clerestory windows on all sides flooding the ensuite with natural light by day and artificial light with the upscale chandelier by night.
On this upper level is the huge custom eat-in kitchen. And what a kitchen it is with marble flooring, large sunny windows with ocean view, an abundance of custom cabinetry, stone and glass backsplash, central island, stunning Blue Pearl granite counter tops throughout (my personal favourite) and LG stainless steel appliances including the slide-in stove with double ovens, double drawer-French door refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher, all included. There is also an L-shaped, ocean facing breakfast bar for four additional guests to enjoy the magnificent view! Imagine having the ocean right outside your kitchen! From here you access the upper balcony overlooking the water. Lucky the homeowner who will enjoy their morning tea/coffee overlooking the quiet cove from this private balcony in the beaming New Brunswick sunshine. A second staircase with accent lighting leads from the kitchen back down to the main level.
The electrical entrance is 200 amp, water is supplied by a drilled well and the sewer is septic. The heating is a combination of electric baseboard and cozy airtight wood-burning stove with automatic fan.
This area is a sea kayaker’s dream come true. Put-in right from your own private beach and glide through the pristine waters of the Bay of Fundy taking in all this area has to offer from many varieties of seabirds, loons, ducks, seals, porpoise and more.
