NEW PRICE

Here is an unusually designed house in a delightful setting with lovely cleared water frontage on "The Basin," well known for water sports and sea breezes. The 2.3 acre lot is uniquely attractive with a wide spread of land to lend maximum privacy, gardening opportunities and an ocean panoramic. The house is set well back from the road, up a gentle slope from the ocean shore and nicely located well away from the neighbors. The house has 3 bedrooms on the 2nd floor with 2 guest rooms in the fully developed basement along with a family room that stretches from front to back, providing ample space for a home theater. All the rooms are a generous size. Two key rooms, the master and the eat-in kitchen are very large with the latter opening onto the back deck, gazebo and sea view.

[click to enlarge]

High above the Margaree River, at the end of a lengthy woodsy drive, is this sizable and solid home commanding one of the finest river views in Cape Breton. Located about twenty minutes from Inverness and almost the same from Cheticamp, this four bedroom sweeping building has a full 60 feet of 10 foot deep deck that overlooks the river 111 feet below with an unparalleled vista of the wide and powerful river up-stream. The residence is unusually substantial, very comfortable and suitable for year-round living. The living/dining room and master bedroom all have large windows that make the most of the spectacular views of the Margaree River and Valley. The kitchen is well appointed and spacious with open concept dining. Above the attached 13 x 23 ft. garage is a fourth bedroom that could comfortably accommodate up to three beds for visiting fishermen, relatives or friends. With 15 mostly wooded acres, additional building sites could be cleared to provide a Fishing Club with a totally private retreat and some of the best salmon fly fishing in North America. Besides fly fishing (includes brown trout and striped bass as well as salmon) at the doorstep, world class golf courses, Celtic music venues, white sand beaches and more are all close by and easily accessible. While the area attractions have great appeal when you want to take advantage of them, this thoroughly private and permanently quiet haven is just the place to be when it's time to relax and take it easy...Details

S. BOULARDERIE: Island Point - The Mother of All Peninsulas

Click for large photo

[click to enlarge]

This is an almost island; an extraordinary geological formation that extends boldly into the Bras d'Or Lakes for a distance of 1.8 miles off South Side Boularderie. Island Point is a wild, remote and uninhabited peninsula only 30 minutes from N. Sydney. The land has the typical Karst topography of eroded hills and valleys, but is resplendent with a hardwood forest that covers the entire length of the Point. Its sheer white gypsum cliffs protect a long harbour while the shore is interspersed with beaches and nearly 40 foot depths almost all the way to the sand bar end. The elbow shaped connection to the Boularderie Island shore leads up a steep pitch covered with large firs to the road’s edge at the top of a ridge. 3.6 miles of shoreline, 252 acres, sand beaches, protected anchorages and wilderness character - this property is very special. With a good pair of walking shoes and stamina, you can see it all. A trail runs from the road through much of the property ...Details

BADDECK: Once in a Blue Moon

click to enlarge

[click to enlarge]

Baddeck Bay is a premier location for homes in this very popular area, and has been for decades. In fact properties coming on the market here are relatively rare, and generally quickly sought after. This home is located right on the water looking across toward Beinn Bhreagh, with multiple decks providing sun or shade as desired. The original building was photoed from the air before the addition of a garage and carpentry workshop, that picture appearing as our lead image. The house has been meticulously looked after, with paint and varnish up to date, and the roof and windows in good shape. Road noise is negligible, yet the village of Baddeck is only a few minutes away. There is room on the property for a garden, and based on a neighbours permission from the DNR, it is likely that construction of a wharf would be possible. The neighbourhood is quiet, private and beautiful. As properties on the water here become available so rarely, interested prospective buyers should respond without delay ...Details

A delightful unusual octagonal home post & beam, board & baton with massive stone column in the center which also houses the flu from the fireplace. The stone and concrete radiate heat during the winter fires, and cool in the summer. Unexpected but charming configurations for kitchen, dining and sitting areas create a cozy and comfortable milieu. The picture windows both brighten and provide a year-round sense of privacy amongst the wooded scene. A large vegetable garden successfully provides a constant source of fresh greens and wholesome dining throughout the growing season. The 8 foot wide track up the hill leads through the woods and provides relaxing walks. The active and popular village of Baddeck is only minutes away for shopping, restaurants, and the waterfront.

An unusual and very attractive home, which has most of the window glass changed, the frames re-done in 2008 and the wood stove replaced by a "WET" professional in 2009.
