Ever have the goal of owning a space solely dedicated to relaxation and entertaining? Us too. This lofty cottage on the river for sale, meets this criteria. Located on the Kingston Peninsula and situated directly on the Saint John River with 394 feet of waterfront, this cottage is the centrepiece of the property. Reminiscent of an inviting vacation home four seasons of the year.
We call this place a cottage but it also doubles as a home. With its 2-storey intersecting shed roofs, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, granite countertops, in-floor heating throughout the main level, tile and hardwood floors, spa soaker tub, custom tiled shower, main level master bedroom, main level laundry, Made-in-Maine black powder coated spiral staircase, propane fireplace and the double ceiling height in the main living areas allow this dwelling to feel spacious yet inclusive of the guests on the second floor with help from the loft set-up as well.
Outside, overlooking the Saint John River, is the cedar deck that leads down to a stone staircase which is flanked by a beachy rockwall, further emphasizing the natural elements surrounding this property. At the base of the stone staircase is a large sandy beach area, already set-up for swimming during the day and fireside chats at dusk. During the day, open the windows of the cottage so you can hear the babbling brook that runs alongside the property.
This Kingston Peninsula lofty cottage has surrounding privacy; however if you feel like being social, the Sands Point community is a gracious, enjoyable group of neighbours. The Annual Corn Boil is something to check-out. In addition to the historic lighthouse built in 1898 that is uniquely set on a square skeleton framed steel tower. By the lighthouse there are also tennis courts, a pier and (another) beautiful sandy beach that many families and their children use as a summer meeting spot.
