There’s only three things a big city has that WE DON’T– Noise, Crime and Pollution! But if you miss the city… there’s three within a 45 minute drive! Sussex was voted one of the “best small towns in Canada to live” by Chatelaine magazine! The nearby Fundy Trail completion will bring expanded tourism to the Sussex area. Here’s a chance to own the only Bed & Breakfast Inn in town!
One of Sussex’s most prominent Victorian era properties is now on the market. Offered as a completely furnished, turnkey business with private owners quarters, this grand registered 1884 Heritage property (www.historicplaces.ca) has been constantly maintained and upgraded. Jonah Place retains all of the grace, charm and elegance that is typical of its 19th Century beginnings. Annual renovations continue to provide modern conveniences within, while maintaining the outward appearance of a grand old girl steeped in historical values.
Located on just under 2 acres, in a quiet location on Main Street nestled within mature trees on a large corner lot, this property features many fine flower and plant beds that lend a glorious array of colours throughout Spring, Summer and Fall. The seclusion of the location provides plenty of privacy for guests, yet ensures good commercial visibility from the main road, allowing guests and visitors easy access. Ample on site parking is provided for a minimum of eight vehicles and there are areas for safe keeping of various types of motorized vehicles, bicycles and ski equipment in the attached enclosed garage.
There are a total of five (5) guest rooms within the 3800 sq. ft. main house consisting of one Twin room, two Queen rooms and two King suites. The queens and kings have ensuite baths and the twin a separate private bath with sitting room. All are complete with every modern convenience including HD premium cable TV and DVD players, WiFi, toiletries, linens and modern bath fixtures. Separate living quarters for the owners include a living room, original butlers pantry, modern kitchen with stainless appliances including fridge, stove, over the stove microwave and large prep table, bath with shower, laundry facilities and a separate upstairs bedroom with lots of storage. Connected to the house is a 1500 sq. ft. summer kitchen on two levels that has been used for storage and a gift shop, as well as a large double garage with new premium “Garaga Carriage House” door.
The original coach house is 3500 sq. ft. and has full power from its own electrical panel including a 240v hookup. Although it is not winterized, it is currently used throughout the year for storage and a workshop. There is a lifetime written zoning provision from the local planning commission to allow for conversion of the interior of this structure to accommodate an additional seven rooms, thereby bringing the total amount of rental suites to twelve. Just let your imagination run wild with other ideas for that particular space. Perhaps a Tea Room or Artist’s Loft?
Directly off the kitchen, covered in producing grape vines as seen below is the ample sized 14 x 20′ owner’s deck where one can unwind after a day’s work in the tranquil setting viewing the rear gardens. This is a perfect spot to grill that New York steak to perfection while breathing in the clean country air, after daily chores are complete.
The Town of Sussex, aptly named and registered as the “Mural Capital of Atlantic Canada” and “Gateway to the Atlantic Experience” is a showplace for many events throughout the year including “Atlantic Canada’s Largest Flea Market” (up to 1100 vendors represented) including an antique auto show, the annual “Atlantic Balloon Fiesta” (hot air balloons), “Regional and Canadian Agility Dog Trials”, antique car events, horse and agricultural events and the list goes on from there. In other words plenty of activity to keep the Inn running at capacity year round. There is a very popular ski hill 10 minutes from the Inn with 5 major chair lifts and 30 trails. For those golf enthusiasts there is a top notch 18 hole course 5 minutes away and golf packages are another draw for visiting clients existing and new from all over Canada, US and the World.
Sussex is perfectly situated within the Grand Triangle of Saint John, Fredericton and Moncton with many major points of interest a short drive away. Close to the ocean one can wander on day trips to the site of the world’s highest tides (Hopewell Rocks), a working pioneer village (King’s Landing), home of the giant lobster (Shediac), sea caves (St. Martins) and much more. Voted “One of the Best Places to Live in Canada” in Chatelaine magazine and “one of Canada’s Best Outdoor Towns”, Sussex is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of big city life and start living as the owner of a viable, growing profitable four star operation. The town offers a growing economy and boasts a large college and numerous businesses large and small.
This business has grown consistently over the last 8 years of operation with increases each year in both revenue and guest traffic. Continue this well run turnkey business with existing and future opportunities.
