Sturdy Waterfront Home On The Kennebecasis River

581 Darlings Island Road, Hampton

Pass through the gated entrance down a driveway that has a lane-like feel with apple trees to reveal the protected and perched position of this eye catching, stone front, wood sided home. Hugged by 4 acres of forest and looking at the Kennebecasis River, accessible by a pathway with potential to install a boat mooring or floating dock along its 250' of waterfront. The inside of this home is extensive, divided by levels and connected by an elevator to support a multitude of living situations. A riverfront-cottage feel in the lower level that is finished in pine with a cozy fireplace, sunporch, woodstove and more of a traditional feel to the main level with its white-cabinet kitchen and creamy wall tones. Both levels have a kitchen, living room, dining area, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms offering two complete and separate floors of living. The bottom level also includes 2 laundry rooms, a window-lined sitting room and storage where there is a propane on-demand generator and geothermal open loop heat system. The attached double garage has a loft as does the home itself on its highest floor. There are 3 access points to a large deck that is fenced with blooming gardens. A covered porch ensures there is always someplace to sit outside with a waterview. With such ample waterfront to yourself here, there is also a deep water channel and access to both the Saint John River and Bay of Fundy. The privacy barrier, treed protection and the rugged Maine and Muskoka feel of this home topped by its scenic location of blue water and abundant greenery is enough to have any person feel as though they are home as soon as they arrive.
