Home for Sale

Country Living near the city – our home for sale in Lower Coverdale

UPDATE July 1st, 2017 – HOUSE is SOLD to an awesome new family :)

Ok guys, this is weird. Like standing naked in front of my readers. (Don’t run away – I’m not I pinky swear) But it feels that way.

I’m sharing my home we have just put up for sale. SO many of you have asked about our move since we announced our big news way back in February, so here it is. Our forever home is now on the market. Our “It’s not fancy pants or foo foo, it’s about rocking chairs on big comfy porches, comfort, relaxing and enjoying country living, it’s a lifestyle” house, if you will.

Our house is listed for sale on Property Guys – for more listing information and map – see our listing on Property Guys HERE

Here are some of the details.

Are you eager to live in the country but want to be close to the city? Want a little land, peace and quiet, bonfires, a big sunny and comfy porch? A cozy screen room and outdoor space but don’t want to be in complete isolation? Looking for a family home with lots of space, fully finished basement and toy garage? Looking to be downtown Moncton in less than 10 mins? Maybe you are looking for low taxes? We’ve got what you may be looking for.

Country living near the city at it’s best. For real.

Country Living in Lower Coverdale

We are selling our forever home, located at 49 Manor Ridge Drive in Lower Coverdale New Brunswick.

Well, we thought it would be our forever home, but life, you know how it is, and we are now moving out of the province to live by the sea, so our home now needs a new awesome family to move in.

We have been loving on this house as if we would stay forever. Meaning, we have put heart and sole and quality products into all renovations and upgrades. The work is done people.

Our 3 (plus 1) bedroom, 3 bathroom home is waiting for you.

Located on just about 2 acres (1.99) in a sought after area of Lower Coverdale, our peaceful yard has 1 acre discreetly fenced in, mature gorgeous maple and birch trees, wooded paths and lots of trees and woods to explore. It’s very private and our loudest neighbour happens to be an occasional owl. Snowmobile and ATV trails are nearby. (and we have a second garage with room to store those toys if needed)

Our large, mature maple trees put on quite a show every Fall. (this is from the kitchen window)

The large wooded back yard has been discreetly fenced off to keep any pets  (or kiddos) you may have corraled, yet still,  have lots of room to wander.

Perennial gardens in the front were planted with ease of care in mind to allow for less fussing. Grasses and shrubs can be found on the borders. We built stone wall borders with local stone.

There is an attached large 2 car garage AND a separate large garage for the toys with new garage door.

It’s even pretty in winter, and you can see our Christmas house tour if you would like here.
