I’m selling my beloved upriver home! The house is located in New Brunswick, Canada near the US/Canada border with northern (Aroostook County) Maine.
It’s on a quiet country road by a small river, in a beautiful area of farms, forests, and small towns.
It’s a great house for a vacation retreat or a Canadian homebase. Canada is a quiet, safe, stable country, a wonderful place to live part-time or year-round.
Because the house is near the border, it’s easy to maintain ties in the two countries and travel back and forth. The local border crossing is quiet and easy to cross.
NEW PRICE is $59,900.

The house was built with square nails (made by the blacksmith) which dates it to sometime in the late 19th century. It’s comfortable and old-fashioned, especially cozy in the winter.
The house retains some of its original 19th century features, including upstairs flooring and bedroom plaster.
The house is located in the Upper St John River Valley, the area marked with the oval. It’s a beautiful region of farms, forest land, and small towns.
Here’s a closer view.
I’m self-employed. The house is a good site for a home-based business because it’s close to the border and has an excellent high-speed internet connection through BellAliant.
Having a business in Canada and the US isn’t complicated, and doing business with both the US and Canada is very convenient from this property.
The house sits across the road from a small river. This picture, looking upstream, was taken a little ways down the road from the house. You can walk out the front door and go fishing, canoeing, river tubing, kayaking, boating, and birding (eagles, herons, osprey, etc.)
The house is out of the picture on the left, on the left-hand side of the road. It’s across the road from the tall fir trees on the left in the photograph.
The river is a tributary of the much-larger St John river. It’s beautiful at every season of the year.
This is the layout of the house. Click to enlarge. Dimensions are approximate.
Property taxes are $465 per year. Water: Private well. Septic: Village sewer system.
Heating costs: approx. $1000 (4 cords of wood @ $200 plus occasional electric back-up)
The property is off the beaten track, on a quiet road of farms, homes, and woods.
You can walk out the back door and pick up hiking trails that go for miles in every direction. There’s an old railroad bed nearby for walking and biking.
The nearest house can just be seen down the road. In the other direction, the nearest house is a half-mile or so away. Across the road (out of the picture) is the river, screened by trees.
Here’s the house in winter. There are cross-country ski trails nearby, and starting from the back door, you can snowshoe over a wide area of fields and forest. Nearby villages have hockey and curling teams for all ages.
Snow removal is excellent; the roads are cleared as the snow is falling.
The house, heated with wood (with electric backup), is especially cozy in the wintertime.
