Looking for one-level living on a large one acre lot with a four-car garage? Not easy to find but here it is! Located in Quispamsis at 26 Squire Drive this home is within walking distance of one of the town’s major attractions the Q-Plex. Open year round for skating, hockey, swimming, special events and the walking/jogging track this popular venue is a welcome site in the community. Another nice feature of this location is its proximity to all the town conveniences, shops, grocery stores, restaurants, and the Gondola Point Beach on the Kennebecasis River is all just a two minute car ride away! The lot is partially landscaped and part naturally treed. The landscaping was revamped last year.
This charming ranch-style home with brick and stone front façade has many sought-after features to suit today’s active lifestyle. An important feature is not one but two efficient heating systems with in-floor hot water heating (what feels better than heated floor?) and also two ductless heat pumps providing economical heat in the cool months and refreshing air conditioning in the summer. These mini-splits are located in the great room and the master suite.
A hand-laid brick walkway meanders to the front entrance of this mint condition home with covered brick patio, perfect for sitting out on hot days and keeping visitors out of the elements while waiting to enter the front door. This handsome door is cut-bevelled glass, attractive from the street and allowing in natural light to the foyer. The home is open concept with the kitchen, great room, dining room and sun room open to each other. Such a welcoming layout when friends and family are visiting!
The custom kitchen features cathedral ceilings, three skylights, handsome cherry cabinetry, angled central-island with breakfast bar, solid surface Corian counter tops plus a spacious eating area with huge window. The flooring is ceramic tile right from the foyer on through the kitchen. The stainless steel appliances come with the home including the slide-in range, French door refrigerator, microwave/fan and dishwasher.
The great room features cork flooring known for absorbing sound and a cozy propane fireplace. This room also features a cathedral ceiling, an abundance of recessed pot lights and is open to the dining room and sun room. The sun room has a wall of glass, double patio doors and three skylights allowing more natural light into the room and beyond into the great room . The dining room highlights a large Palladian window and cork flooring all open to the great room.
All bedrooms are a nice size with hardwood flooring and Palladian windows including the master which has three skylights. It has two separate walk-in closets so no sharing and a large spa-like ensuite bathroom with deep soaker air tub, built-in linen cabinet and separate shower. For additional privacy the master is on one side of the home and the two additional bedrooms are on the far side. Close to bedrooms three and four is the newly renovated main bathroom with porcelain tile floor and large shower.
A good-sized mud room with double closet leads to the attached oversized 2-car garage which is insulated, sheet rocked and heated with one of the four zones of the in-floor hot water heating system. Low monthly power costs of $296 per month include heat, hot water and lighting and appliances! There is a 12 x 13 finished loft over this garage for storage purposes. For you car enthusiasts there is a second detached two-car garage newly built last year providing plenty of space for your everyday vehicles plus that special little baby you keep under cover for the winter! Having a four-car garage also means indoor storage for your boat, motorcycles, snow mobiles, etc.!
There has been numerous updates to this home in the last two years including new light fixtures, complete new main bathroom, new cork flooring in the great room and dining room, addition of the ductless heat pump providing air conditioning and the addition of the second two-car garage.
If you are looking to downsize to one level living this is a home you should consider.
