NEW PRICE

Thirty seven acres of lovely, basically level wooded land with 1,500 feet of water frontage on picturesque MacDonald Lake is the settling for an ideal getaway on fabled Cape Breton Island. Originally built and developed as an iconic B & B with European luxurious charm, the main building can perpetuate that atmosphere by continuing to extend its carefully molded comfort to a family and friends. An interesting variety of possibilities suggest themselves. Depending on the buyers, the log cottage could be removed, furniture could be excluded, or various adjustments to the purchaser's acquisition could change the price considerably. In addition the HST might be shared by vendor and buyer to further materially change the cost. A negotiated transaction is encouraged.

It was built by one of Baddeck's founding families back when prime waterfront on the Bay was undeveloped and they chose the best of the best.

Many renovations have been made over the years, all done carefully and skillfully to retain the home's original character, most recently in the last year. Five bedrooms with private baths and lovely views, large attic loft, a spacious, modern kitchen overlooking the Bay, professional decor throughout and a private deck at the water's edge are just a few of its appealing qualities.

Unique is one adjective, aerial is another, beautiful and even majestic can also be included, although the reality strikes subjectively. The accompanying photos are a poor two dimensional effort to illustrate a reality that is simply extraordinary ....Details
