Fantastic location for this stylish home overlooking the Kennebecasis River from Long Island to Grand Bay! Never a dull moment when you’re overlooking the river here with snowmobiles, ice boats, cross-country skiers and smelt fishermen in winter and sail and power boats, water skiing, canoes & kayaks in the summer. Watch the ferry move traffic year round from Millidgeville to Kingston with a steady flow of commuters crossing to the city. The front deck with glass rails opens off the kitchen provides an unobstructed view which is especially nice at twilight as the sun sets over the mountains.
If you work in the uptown area you’re only seven minutes away and if you work at the University of New Brunswick or the Saint John Regional Hospital you’re just three minutes from the door, close enough to pop home for lunch!
