Mama is really excited about her first open house in a very long time as she and Charlie co-host a fabulous bungalow/condo at 16 McNamee Lane, Low Wood Estates in the heart of Rothesay.  I invite you to join them this Tuesday, August 30th from 3:30pm to 5pm at this one-level, easy living, bungalow.

Beautifully updated and designed by an architect with wonderful flow and precise details.  That’s right, everything you see is included with the exception of the wall pictures.  That’s furniture, rugs, glassware, crystal, dishes, flatware, accessories, etc.!   Two bedroom, two full bathrooms both with tiled showers and heated floors, open concept, solid wood custom kitchen with quartz counter tops & top of the line appliances included 5-burner gas stove, walk in pantry, walk-in linen closet, large master closet, oversized 2-car attached garage, stone patios front and back, sunset water view!

MLS#NB077617, Offered at $625,000 furnished. Drop in on your way home from work, after picking up groceries or visiting the kids!

We have an accepted offer on our stunning waterfront home/cottage on Washademoak Lake at 19 Lobster Lane, Cambridge-Narrows.  Not surprising with so very many great features!  MLS#NBNB077684  Offered at $699,000.

I’ve really been enjoying the cool nights here in Rothesay.  This morning at 10am it was only 17C on our deck.  My kind of weather!  Mama, Papa, Nicholas and I enjoy lunch on the deck under our big umbrella.  I laid close by just hoping a few scraps might hit the floor!  I can’t complain, you just need to look at me to know that I’m well fed!  Hahahahaha.  I enjoyed a nice refreshing bath this week.  My friend Michelle came by and helped Mama, it’s a big job.  Michelle says “this is really a 3-man job” but I think she was exagerating. Mama got out my Burt’s Bees dog shampoo and rub a dub-dub the fun began.  I absolutely  love it.  Then we got out my Bear Air Newfound dog blow dryer imported from Toronto.  Had me fluffy and dry in fifteen minutes.  My black coat is just shinning now!

See you around and talk soon.  Be sure to make the most of what we have left of summer as before we know it we’ll be into full blown autumn.  One of my favourite seasons!

It’s been a great summer so far with comfortable days and cool nights!  When we look at heatwaves around the world I’m so happy I live in Rothesay, close to Saint John, the air-conditioned city!  This may be the last place on Earth lately with a comfortable summer.  Our hearts go out to the people, pets, farm animals and wild life facing 40+C.  I can’t even imagine it!!!  Mama and Papa experienced it in Egypt when they went to see the pyramids.  They were happy to see them (a life-long dream) but both said “never again”!  Once was enough.  Personally I’m sticking close to the air conditioning.

We have two exciting new luxury listings.  One is a large bungalow/condo in Low Wood Estates Rothesay.  Pets are allowed (I’ve checked) and many homeowners here have dogs and cats.  There is a huge common lawn (a few acres) which is perfect for walks and my favourite thing to do, roll on the grass.  This unit has a water view of the Kennebecasis and is beautifully updated with high-quality finishes.  I like the fact that it’s all one level as I’m finding stairs more challenging now that I’ve turned ten.  And… I like the beautiful hand-laid stone patio out the back.  I can see myself there under the shade of the umbrella watching the action on the river as Mama sips her morning tea.  Oh, and by the way, it comes turnkey, tastefully furnished with glassware, dishes, accessories & rugs, all that you see upon viewing!  Economical ductless heat pumps provide heat and cool for an average monthly bill of $290 and the condo fee is $484 which covers lawn care, snow removal, and replacement of roofing, windows, siding and exterior door when needed.  MLS#NB077617  Offered at $625,000.

I can tell you that this second luxury listing  is “Paw Approved” by Big Buddy Bacon!!!  It’s a 1.38 acre waterfront property on the Washademoak Lake with sandy beach, private dock with shore power and private paved boat launch.  The is a phenomenal place for boating connecting to the St John River and the one and a half storey year-round house or vacation cottage is stunning!  Three bedrooms and two full baths with the master on the main level with two huge bedrooms on the second floor.  What’s really turning my crank (and Nicholas too) is the sandy beach for lots of refreshing swims, the dock which Nicholas can dive off, the acreage with lots of space to run and play, the three-sided veranda/deck providing sun and shade and the main level master means that I’d never have to do the stairs and could stay close to Mama & Papa at all times.!    The fun we could have at this place!  I’m trying to talk Mama into it but she says she loves it so much she’d have to quit her job as she’d never leave!  Guess that rules this one out for the Bud!  🙁  MLS#NB077684  Offered at $699,000.

Hope you’re having a great summer and getting out there to enjoy all our beautiful province has to offer.  Stay cool and I’ll be talking with you soon.

Your pal,
