Looking for a special waterfront home or year-round vacation cottage. This one has everything you’re looking for and possibly more!
Impressive waterfront luxury cottage at 19 Lobster Lane, Cambridge-Narrows with private sandy beach and breath-taking sunset view over Washademoak Lake. Situated on 1.38 acres with paved driveway, private paved boat launch and quality pressure- treated dock with shore power, this is a boater’s paradise! Serious boat enthusiasts can connect by power or sail from the lake to the St John River taking them across southern New Brunswick all the way to the Atlantic Ocean! Boating doesn’t get any better than this. What could be sweeter than keeping your boat right out front!
Inviting, comfortable, one and a half storey home with two-storey living room, windows galore, open concept to the kitchen and dining area, all with water view! Hardwood and ceramic tile flooring throughout. Quality constructed with blue board plaster interior (usually only seen in million dollar plus homes), no sheet rock with nails popping here!
Custom, cream-coloured attractive kitchen with tiled floor, cherry central island with pendant lights and breakfast bar, stone backsplash and attractive granite countertops. Stainless steel, fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave and range hood included. The kitchen is open to the dining room with an abundance of sunny windows.
The master bedroom is located on the main floor as is the spacious four-piece bathroom with tiled floor, deep soaker whirlpool tub and separate shower.
The turned hardwood staircase with wrought iron spindles leads to the second level with awesome loft overlooking the water. This is a beautiful sunny space with balcony access currently used as a home office but would be ideal as a family room or gym as well. I’m not sure how much work would get done from this space but you could try! This level features two additional huge bedrooms, perfect for visiting friends and family adjacent to a full three-piece bathroom with shower.
Access the inviting three-sided wrap around covered and uncovered veranda from several areas of the main floor including the living room, dining room and kitchen! If you enjoy sun or shade it’s all part of the design. What a tranquil spot for morning tea/coffee as wild Canada geese, and other water fowl glide by. Afternoons are a breeze with family and friends as you enjoy an alfresco meal and at dusk look forward to awe-inspiring sunsets over the lake as you listen to the beutifully haunting sound of the loon. This spacious deck adds so much to this home for entertaining and everyday living with a design that flows inside and out.
The full finished daylight walkout basement includes the large rec room (pool table included) with patio access, large laundry/storage room (washer/dryer included), utility room and flex room for additional storage, gym, sewing room, playroom and more. Patio doors lead from the rec room to the patio protected by the second sea wall from the wind on cool spring/fall days.
A double sea wall ensures no issues with spring freshet, built three feet higher than the historic high of 2018 and wrapped around at each end. The wall closest to the beach is a beautiful stone wall. This is backfilled with clay to prevent seepage and the second wall is concrete with a four foot concrete footing. The ducted heat pump provides economical heat and air-conditioning, new in 2021. The electric entrance is 200 amp.The well is an artesian well meaning that the water is piped directly from a spring, ever flowing with no shortage of water. Go ahead water the lawn every day, water is never an issue with an artesian well and the quality is spring water. The sewerage system is septic which was emptied August 5th 2022. The storage shed is included. Lobster Lane is a private street with six homes. Upkeep is divided between the homes and snow removal is $30 each per storm.
The home is centrally located an hour or less from the cities of Saint John, Moncton and Fredericton with the charming town of Sussex within thirty five minutes and the gas/convenience store is three minutes from the door for everyday necessities.
This home is in great condition and move-in ready. If you’ve been dreaming of a lakeside retreat, dream no longer, this is as good as it gets.
