Pinch me please! Am I really in Saint John or have I just been simultaneously transported to some fabulous Manhattan loft of the rich and famous! Uptown commercial building with jaw-dropping loft! Breathtaking is the only way to describe this huge 3000 square foot uptown loft beautifully transformed and renovated using nothing but the best in craftsmanship, design and finishes.
Entering through the glass lined foyer with antique chandelier you sense that you are in for something special! Further down the hall you pass two nice-sized bedrooms with one currently being used as a home office; both with tiled floor.
The moment you walk through the double frosted French doors from the foyer you’ll just stop dead in your tracks as you stop and stare at this wondrous volume of tasteful space! I’m sure the owners get this reaction from every first-time visitor. I know they got this reaction from me and between my real estate and interior design careers I have seen literally thousands of stunning homes. But never anything like this in Saint John!
The great room is great in every since of the word with soaring 16 foot antique tin embossed ceilings, four matching antique crystal chandeliers, gleaming hardwood floors and windows all around letting in plenty of natural sunlight. The center-piece of this grand space is the new wood-burning fireplace, not only cozy and inviting but super efficient and attractive. Sit in one of two separate seating areas for group conversations or cozy corner for two, There is plenty of space to comfortably seat ten or more in the dining area and also for friends to gather around your baby grand, rather you are personally tinkling the ivories yourself or you’ve hired a professional! If you enjoy hosting intimate parties with a few close friends and family or you feel like inviting a hundred for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres you will certainly be entertaining in grand style here!
Up one custom wrought iron spiral staircase from the great room to the spacious den with plenty of windows, hardwood floor and glass railings overlooking the great room. This is the perfect space to curl up on one of the sofas to watch the latest movie flick on your over-sized flat-screen TV with surround sound.
A second custom wrought iron spiral staircase leads to the master suite. Large enough for a king bed, dressers and cozy seating area, this space features two large walk-in closets with etched glass lookout down to the kitchen and 4-piece spa-like ensuite bathroom with granite topped cherry vanity, double sinks and huge tiled and plate glass shower with rainfall shower head.
The heart of any home is the kitchen and this one does not disappoint! With custom cherry cabinetry, cherry custom built-in pantry, new stainless steel KitchenAid appliances, quartz counter tops, glass back splash, central island, tiled floor, sunny window and spacious eating area the home chef will shine here. The ceiling heights soar again here in the kitchen to 16 feet with antique tin ceiling. Off the kitchen we find a nice-sized second bedroom, the main 4-piece bath with tiled deep soaker tub/shower with plate glass panel, and inviting main floor den with tiled flooring. Double frosted exterior French doors lead to a very private outdoor alfresco patio for dining and private deck perfect for relaxing and catching a few rays on sunny days or enjoying the refreshing sea air off the Bay of Fundy at twilight. If you listen closely you can hear the call of the gulls as they dive over the water.
Also off the kitchen is a tiled mud room entrance off the private parking area. No worries about off-street parking here plus there is a one-car garage so your vehicle can be stored out of the weather!
