Does your dream include hundreds of acres of land?  Plus a restored century plus farm home revived to the very highest standards?   This could be it!  If you’re into boating the boat ramp is just down the street on the deep waters of Belleisle Bay and the St. John River.

Highest quality restoration for this farmhouse circa 1870. Stripped right down to the boards in 2010. Cape Cod wood siding over rigid foam insulation & wood frame windows.

Main entrance with hardwood floor and central foyer leading to the double parlours, dining room, bathroom, mudroom and staircase to second level.

One of the most attractive kitchens I’ve seen in quite some time!  Stunning, quality, Queenstown cream-coloured kitchen with sunny windows on three sides!  Features granite countertops, large central island breakfast bar and KitchenAid stainless steel appliances.  The kitchen is open concept to the casual dining room with double window.  There is space here for a very nice-sized pantry.

The double parlour has hardwood floors and crown mouldings with the living room/family room surrounded by windows.  (family room can easily be changed to a main floor bedroom).

The main floor has a full three-piece bathroom with tub/shower enclosure perfect for future plans of main floor bedroom.  The nice-sized mud room has sunny double window, ceramic tile flooring and oversized closet.  It opens direct to the private covered porch.  Enjoy morning tea/coffee overlooking the grounds and ponds with the sweet sound of song birds brightening the start of your day. 

The second floor boasts a huge master bedroom (addition of 1 wall would convert it back to 2 bedrooms) and large walk-in closet.  Here we find office space, a second full three-piece bathroom with ceramic tile floor and tub surround plus laundry area (washer & dryer included).

Updates include steel roof with membrane, all new electrical (200 amp) and plumbing, blown-in pink insulation and a full nine foot high poured concrete daylight basement.

294 acres includes 5 spring-fed ponds and huge wooded area with full report by Service New Brunswick woodlot co-op specifying exact tree types, quantity and location map. There is approximately 300 feet of road frontage, 3424 feet (over half a mile) wide across the back  and 8980 feet (1.7 miles) deep.  The owner regularly swims in the cool clear water of the pond closets to the house ( a one minute walk).

This charming property is perfect for those who appreciate a quiet country life with their own private acreage to stretch out and explore.   It is located minutes from the town of Hampton with shops, Sobeys, restaurants, markets,  liquor store, etc.
