A stunning home in a pristine setting on the edge of New Brunswick, Canada's Baie de Chaleur awaits you. On this deep bay off the Atlantic Ocean perfect privacy and peace with views to soothe your soul are in your reach. Lapping waves lull you to sleep at night. Chirping birds and wheeling gulls greet your morning awakening. Lobster boats bob in the bay and mackerel school in the thriving waters. Evening bonfires, lobster, mussel and clam bakes, marshmallow roasts and toasting the sunset on the deck are your common fare. Life could not be sweeter.
This custom designed home sits on 4 acres of wooded land directly on the Bay De Chaleur in Restigouche County, New Brunswick, Canada. The land is completely private bordered on 3 sides by thick forest and 180 feet of ocean at the front. There is a large rock outcrop that forms a land point that protects the shore line from easterly storms. To the west of the point is a beach in a private cove, perfect for lobster and clam boils. The easterly end of Heron Island is directly across from the property.
The island is easily accessible by boat for its nature trails and beaches full of clams. The island is aptly named as the area is a sanctuary for herons and other birds and animals. The surrounding waters are full of lobsters that are harvested twice a year. The salmon fishing is world class. The wooded land is populated by deer, moose, fox and rabbit. The panoramic view from the property is completely devoid of any man-made structures. Approximately four acres come with the house. A neighbouring parcel of approximately four acres is also available from another vendor. This is a natural paradise that seems to be at the end of the earth and is one of the premier properties on the north coast of New Brunswick.
The 2400 square foot architecturally designed home makes use of local cedar wood that covers all the outside walls and also the planks of the 1000 square foot deck. The total living area, inside and out, is approximately 3400 square feet plus a 1500 square foot unfinished full basement. Built to the highest quality standards 3 years ago, the home is still under guarantee by the local contractor.
