This Queen Anne style home was built in 1906 by James S. Neil, a prominent New Brunswick businessman, as a wedding gift for his daughter. The house sits on a corner lot within a 5-minute walking distance to the Saint John (Wolastoq) River, walking trails, local market, and downtown area. The home was extensively renovated in 2005, with the kitchen updated and an extension added in 2015. An NB Power Energy audit was done in 2012, with all recommendations completed. The roof was replaced with a lifetime warrantied shingle in 2017. This gorgeous home hosts 6 bedrooms with several multi-use spaces and 3.5 bathrooms. The kitchen boasts all new stainless-steel appliances, marble counter tops, and floor-to-ceiling cabinetry. This dreamy kitchen also hosts a custom corner window seat bathed in light through wrap-around windows. A half bath follows. Three beautiful archways lead to a large dining room, living room, and den with original French doors and fireplace. A large, wrap-around verandah offers lovely outdoor sitting space with a spectacular view of neighbouring heritage homes. Upstairs, find an additional family room and sitting room/office with a window seat and a bonus “wet bar”. This sitting room could be used for a variety of purposes. A spa-like bathroom is nearby with clawfoot tub and tile shower. A second full bathroom is located off one of the bedrooms. Enjoy the warmth and natural light streaming in the cozy sunroom, as well as three bedrooms. The master offers a wall of windows and charming fireplace. Upstairs, find three more good-sized bedrooms, another full bathroom, plus a quaint reading nook and sitting area. This home is fully wired and plumbed for a convenience suite or Airbnb renting for $1100 monthly – hookups and appliances available. Only minor modifications required. There is truly no shortage of space on this exquisite property!
The home has a solid deep stone foundation, sitting high enough to avoid any of the flooding experienced by many in the downtown area. The basement is airy and dry with spray foam insulation. A combination of electric hot water and electric baseboard heat the home.
Easily maintained perennial gardens surround the property with shrubs and ornamental trees, a gated private patio area, a lovely gated arbor and a salt box style potting shed. New sod on several portions of the lawn was laid in 2018.
