You missed it in 2018. Life on a farm in rolling country on one of the most beautiful rivers in New Brunswick. Here we are at the end of the summer, but there is still time to look for this special place. Here is your chance to put together the size and type of land you want and be ready for the spring and summer of 2019.
This large farm on the Richibucto River and Trout Brook could contain what you need to make the dream come true for the right family. Located on a recently resurfaced numbered provincial highway it has 1.5 km waterfront on the Richibucto River and 2 km on Trout Brook. It boasts 100 acres of pastures and meadows with the remainder in trees. The pastures are fenced.
The homestead as marked on the plan shown as #1 has a little over 20 acres of land, including a garden and 4 fenced pastures. It reaches to the Richibucto River.
The residence has a large country kitchen with a modern Amish country size wood cook stove (plus a Whirlpool glass top range with a true convection oven). On the main floor there is also a huge living room and a good sized office. Upstairs there are 5 large bedrooms plus a recently renovated bath with tub-shower enclosure, double vanity, and right-height, elongated toilet. The living room has 4 large windows, 4 bedrooms have 2 large windows and are about 200 ft² / 18m² each. Kitchen and bath have ceramic tile floors, the other rooms and hallways deep pile carpet. There is a large enclosed patio on the west side.
80% of the barn has been re-framed and is set up for horses and goats. In total there are 7 separate pastures for the horses all accessible from the main barn door and 6 are accessible from the two doors to separate box stalls. There are two large sliding doors, one for equipment, one for the goats or sheep, which we pastured on the meadows with electric net fencing.
Also included in the homestead package are:
- a four car garage with storage above.
- two separate wells that have never run dry for the residence and the barn. They provide good water.
- a wood-burning and an oil-burning furnace. The heat is transferred to water radiators that cause much less dust and dryness than conventional forced air systems. The steel oil tank, has just been replaced with a fibre glass tank that has a 30 year warranty.
Not included but available:
- additional parcels which will provide you with the potential of much more fire wood than you will ever use and pasture and hay for all the animals the barn can hold.
The first picture of the Richibucto River was taken going north (east) bound on the river, therefore the right shore is our property.
The second picture was taken in the bend of the river of the other side of the river. We usually swam and played in the water in the bend of the river.
The last water picture is not of the river but of Trout Brook between the bridge and the confluence.
There is no power boating in this part of the river, small outboards maximum.
The fox breeding tower is a landmark, but needs to be restored soon.
The area is very pretty consisting of rolling hills and winding roads.
The fire station and the ambulance are less than 3 km away. Bass River and Harcourt with gas stations and country stores are about 12 km away, Richibucto and Rexton with schools and many services 30 minutes, Moncton 45, as is the beautiful beach of Cape Lumiere. Cails Mills is part of the LSD of Weldford in Kent County. The location on the map is at date of publishing completely out to lunch. On maps.google.com Trout Brooks in some views shown as Richibucto River. To be save consult geonb.snb.ca.
We have no plans to sell those lands that the purchaser of the homestead will not buy. We offer the farm-stead for sale for reasons not related to the farm. We can keep land more easily than the buildings. So we will be quiet neighbours, not a recreational subdivision next to you. Parcel one is the package envisaged in this ad. Parcels 2a and 2b have a long water front and significant road frontage on Route 465. 2a and b are an existing separate lot that is part of the farm as it exists today. All the other areas are currently one lot, except for the approximate 5 acres the buildings sit on, which for historic reasons are one lot for the farm house and one for the barn and the garage. The fox tower sits on lot 2c. South of 2c and 2d is 2e which is harder to recognize as it only shows the regular markings of geonb.snb. The areas and perimeters shown on the parcels are based on the measuring tool of geonb.snb. These measures seem to be for whatever reason inherently inaccurate. Service New Brunswick will confirm this to you. They are only meant as orientation as the total square footage of the house which is a guess. The total farm size is supported by land titles. 2e and the parcels making up 3 are ones that are not essential to making the farm a viable commercial operation. If we have a chance we would be happy to keep them, but we are willing to sell these as well. Historically the total farm supported 3 farms (plus milling operations on both sides of Trout Brook). We applied for and received a Livestock Stock Operations Permit. The Cails settled here 7 generations ago. Cails Mills like most of Weldford is still today very farming oriented.
