Attractive stone façade for this four plus one bedroom family home in the much sought after Rothesay area of Hastings Cove on quiet street of gracious homes with southern exposure. This inviting home is located at 14 Garrison Drive off Partridge Road and Elizabeth Parkway. What makes this area so desirable? Is it the beautifully landscaped well-cared-for homes, the walking/biking trails, the comradery between neighbours or the fine sand community beach on the Kennebecasis River with summertime life guard? One important feature for families is the highly rated, newly renovated elementary school within walking distance with heated floors, no less!
Meander up the hand-laid stone walkway with mature landscaping to the front covered porch the perfect shelter from the elements for visitors as they ring the door bell.
