Blogging with Buddy, October 20th, 2017

Another glorious week and another glorious sale!  The weather has been totally awesome.  Nicholas and I have been out most days hanging with the tradesmen who are revamping the exterior of our home with new siding under the supervision of our contractor, Roy Chase.  Roy came to us highly recommended and when we see the fantastic job he’s doing on our house we don’t need to question why!  It looks like new!  Roy and the boys say that Nicholas and I are the walking bosses on the job as we hang pretty close to them, enjoying the comradery and on lunch breaks they rub my ears and throw the ball for Nicholas (his very favourite thing in the world).  They’ve been here a month now and we’re so happy the weather is holding out!

This has been an exciting week as Mama has sold our heritage home listing located at 297 Douglas Avenue!  This isn’t just any heritage home but home of the renowned Saint John business owner lumber baron Fraser Gregory of Murray and Gregory fame.  Mr Gregory commissioned the crème de la crème to built this Queen Ann style masterpiece 117 years ago as a wedding gift to his new wife Helen, whose nickname was Beauty and her image has been encapsulated in one of the many preserved antique stained glass windows found throughout the home.  This is the only home Mama has seen in her life time with trim and mouldings HAND-CARVED, which has been verified by the NB Museum!   No wonder it took two years to build!  Congratulations to our British Columbia buyer who is so very excited about their purchase and their move to our Loyalist City.

Mama is pleased to present our new Rothesay listing at 70 Dunedin Road just steps from the golf course and the beach of Riverside Park.  This is a beach that Buddy knows well as Nicholas and I go here often in the summertime.  This stone home is elegant with spacious rooms and a lovely view of the Kennebecasis River.  Wonderful finished attic for a multitude of uses including studio, gym, bedrooms, or play space for children or teens on cool stormy days.  Showings have started, don’t miss this one!


Hope you have a great weekend.  Enjoy the sunshine and the warm days while they last!

Your pal,
