[click to enlarge]

This very large property was assembled from a number of smaller parcels that now total a contiguous 400+ acres. It has a woodland lake, extensive forest and trails, expansive elevated views of and access frontage on the Bras d'Or Lake. The location affords absolute privacy yet is just 20 minutes from Sydney. Quiet enjoyment of these attractive features would be enough for most of us but the engineer owner had specific expectations from this land. He prepared basic plans for a hydro-electric generating facility, using release of water from the property's 5 acre lake. He calculated the sustainable cordage available for building and energy resources, including a small biomass gasifaction plant for the generation of additional electric power..

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
