Welcome to 3081 Rothesay Road; an exceptional Cape Cod home located in the heart of Old Rothesay. A perfect balance of heritage craftsmanship and contemporary convenience, you will love the juxtaposition of style and design this home offers. The appeal of this property begins curbside of this stately address and the charm and character carry throughout.
Quality abounds in this 3.28 majestic estate within walking distance to the Rothesay Common and conveniently just steps away from RNS. Old world details occupy the senses and warm the space with over sized crown moldings, raised panel wainscoting and exquisite built-ins.
As you pass through the principal entrance, you are greeted with the luxury of a wood-burning fireplace in the foyer and the practicality of the main floor powder room. Through double French doors, you are led into the expansive, wood-beamed great room with a propane fireplace and two walls of glass that looks out onto the grounds and beyond to the Kennebecasis River. A secluded covered porch is accessed via French door from the great room. This is a favored spot in warm summer weather to sit with friends with an after-dinner drink overlooking the mature grounds listening to the tranquil sound of the babbling brook running along the edge of the property.
A rare find with this home is an elevator with access to all floors including the garage. If you or anyone in your family has any type of mobility issues this is the home for you! The elevator also comes in handy for transporting items from one floor to another. No need to carry firewood from the basement; just put it in the elevator and quickly ride up to the main level!
A raised panel arch leads you through to the central hall with large window and gentle hardwood turned staircase. From the hall you enter the over sized formal dining room with matching illuminated built-in corner china cabinets. This is a most impressive room with raised panel wainscoting and walkout bay window. Lucky the guest invited to this gracious dining room for dinner!
The original butler’s pantry is a true delight with storage space and display cases rising full height. This space joins the dining room with the kitchen.
The bright, sunny custom kitchen replete with over sized cherry centre island, cream coloured provincial cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and easy-care Corian counter-tops has in recent years been beautifully updated. The stove is gas as preferred by most home chefs. This kitchen boasts a walk-in pantry and a small sheltered deck overlooking the river.
Off the kitchen is a massive newly built private deck with privacy fence providing plenty of seating area, perfect for entertaining or the home grill master.
Immediately up the back or butlers staircase sits a wonderful office overlooking the backyard. Be it for work or as a dedicated hobby space, you will love the natural light that floods this room. This room can easily be converted into an additional bedroom if required as it was originally used. The laundry room is located here on the second floor. A well-appointed full bath with stunning white marble and black tile herringbone weave sits just off the huge children’s bedroom with three closets. The nice-sized master’s bedroom overlooks the river and has two separate closets. The spa-like ensuite bath features a Cleopatra-style deep soaker tub, separate tiled shower and double vanity. Another adjoining bedroom can be used as home office or study.
This home has been extremely well cared for and lovingly maintained.
Sit and enjoy your coffee from the sanctity of your covered veranda as you watch the world go by around you. Stroll the three+ acre grounds or launch your canoe or kayak from the brook that flows directly from your property into the river. With an impressive address and grounds to match, your family will feel completely at ease in this spectacular residence in the heart of the city. Welcome home!
