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]

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 comfortable home. 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. In addition the kitchen appliances were new in 2008 ...Details

LONG POINT: Sandy Beach, Well Appointed Home

[click to enlarge]

There are moments - like this one - when I genuinely appreciate the opportunity of presenting a property in Cape Breton. This 5 acre parcel has virtually everything Cape Breton is noted for: an ocean front that is an easy walk with a gradual and short pitch to the sandy beach front; usually delightful cool sea breezes, which also minimize the bugs; a very satisfying ocean panorama, with fishing boats in season; a lovely ridge vista inland; and the house! And what a house! Although built 25 years ago, the first step snide leaves one wondering whether the dates are wrong. The place is simply charmingly comfortable and genuinely lovely. The more than 2700 square feet include 4 bedrooms, exquisite hardwood flooring, a chef's delight of a kitchen, dreamy peacefulness throughout in an extremely solidly built home. The sunken family room has a fireplace, a door to the wide deck overlooking the sea, and 2 steps to the kitchen and out the south side to the turn around. There is both an accessible interior 2 car garage which is heated, and has a door to the side entrance. There are ample - in fact- generous storage spaces throughout the house with walk-in his and her closets in the master, special spaces under the eaves and more. The basement is partially finished as an exercise room, and has a 55 by 11 foot space for winter wood. The furnace is both wood and oil using wood mainly but being able to run an oil with a thermostat when traveling or just away. The kitchen appliances are all quality, as is everything in the place. Whether walking the beach, relaxing on the deck, or sunning on the master bedroom's balcony, this property presents the best of Cape Breton ...Details

EXCLUSIVE LISTING: Extraordinary Getaway

NEW PRICE

This property is for a very special person. One for whom beauty, comfort and privacy is paramount. And for whom being remote, yet accessible by normal vehicle, accepting distance as an advantage and a privacy enhancing value, is desirable. The dwelling, on a ridge top about 370 feet above the ocean below, fits that description perfectly. 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
