One of the most picturesque settings in New Brunswick, this custom one-owner cedar log home is total quality inside and out! Professionally landscaped with rare trees such as the huge ‘Yellow Bird Magnolia” and beautiful stone details such as walkways and retaining walls, this property is picture perfect on 9.14 acre of rolling meadows and mature forest with 300 foot frontage on Darlings Lake. This property at 232 Darlings Island Road is totally private with two acres enclosed totally by fencing keeping the deer out of your garden and providing plenty of space for your furry four-legged friends to run and play at will. The exterior is 8” cedar logs and fieldstone exterior with covered and uncovered 1248 square foot wrap around veranda on all sides of the home for your choice of sun or shade. This verandah extends your outdoor living space with access from the foyer, kitchen, great room, home office and master bedroom. Step outside with your coffee, breathe deeply the fresh country air as you gaze over the meandering meadow. The distant sound of a loon echoes from the lake as a flock of ducks flies over head to land gently on the water. This is the world you wake up to every morning. Does life get any better than this?
