One of the last waterfront “Crown Jewels” available on the Kennebecasis River with 5 acres to carve out your dream property, sits the Carter House, circa 1865. Once a key part of the original ship building community of Fairvale this stunning property retains all the original character found in these period homes. Interesting enough, a new addition in 1928 as a 2nd residence made the house a duplex where multiple generations would live, work & play; world renowned pianist Margaret Ann Ireland (m Carter) once lived & entertained international dignitaries here. This acreage is adorned with a variety of mature trees including various apple, lilac, hemlock, maple, tamarack & ash-ideal space for your own vegetable & flower gardens.This home could continue on for extended family with its 3765 sq ft divided into 2 residential units. Although the house now requires an extensive renovation, there is so much potential. Handcrafted moldings, hardwood floors, fireplace & tall ceilings along with the paned glass windows in the summer porch are classic… & a shaded front verandah to dine al fresco enjoyed in the evenings. Walk down through the natural meandering path to your own private west facing beach for playtime, swimming, sailing, sunsets, a bonfire. Create new plots of land to build upon with 3 point access… original out building & pond still sits in harmony with its natural surroundings. A rare opportunity offered on our beautiful river systems; a 25 minute drive into Saint John.
