Living in a beautiful old home in a rural setting is a dream come true for many people. The tranquility of the countryside and the timeless charm of an older home can be a calming and magical experience.
Built in the 1800s by the Carnwath family (or so we think… trust me, it’s easy to go down the genealogy rabbit hole with this one!), 5662 King St. Riverside-Albert, NB, is nestled between two babbling brooks & sits on more than 3 acres. There is simply no denying that the property has history and is calmly awaiting it’s next chapter to be unveiled by new owners.
The Magic of an Old Home in the Country
The term “magic” is subjective. For me, the magic of this property is in the little things. Let me try my best to describe it to you…
The first time I visited the property, I felt the warmth from the driveway – apple blossoms, butterflies, mature trees, and the striking grandeur of the home itself (not to mention the front entrance gives all the feels of a Hallmark movie). The home is a true source of pride for the owner with it’s classic architecture, interesting details and warm, inviting atmosphere.
The kitchen has been graciously renovated and natural light spills into every nook and cranny of the home. The bedrooms are spacious, the bathrooms are updated and luxurious, and the original birds eye maple bannister is still intact on the main staircase.
As we exited the home to explore the property, we were greeted by 2 deer watching us from the overgrown garden. They kept an eye on us as we explored but didn’t seem to mind our being there. The current owner described the many animals that have visited them on the deck of the home as we roamed the field, checked out the 2 outbuildings & felt the earth beneath our feet.
The peace and quiet of a rural setting can be a great way to relax and enjoy life.
Whether you’re taking a leisurely walk, turning your gaze toward the stars or simply admiring the beauty of an old home, there are plenty of ways to find joy and contentment in the country. Riverside-Albert is home to a population of 350 people* and sits along a popular tourist route. It’s easy to get lost in the beauty of this rural setting.
This 1800s home is truly a dream come true for any potential buyer. It’s the perfect combination of classic beauty and some modern touches. It’s a place where memories can be made and cherished for years to come.
