NEW PRICE

This unique property is a 10 acre private island connected by a substantial, drivable, gravel causeway. It must be seen to recognize its various lovely qualities. The beautiful, small home provides complete privacy and natural solitude. There are several beaches on the island, and the inner cove offers a safe, warm, and protected swimming area with a dock. A meadow and small forest add dimension, with wildlife and flowers providing color. The soft summer breezes preclude air conditioning and blow away the very few bugs. The new ICF building is substantially constructed and could easily be used as a model for an additional building. All services are in place. Excellent fresh and ample water comes from a 7000 +/- gallon cistern. An excellent marina, restaurants, and a grocery co-op are only 20 minutes away. The charm is unsurpassed and the privacy and quiet are forever ...Details

[click to enlarge]

Following along a 12 km "annually maintained" Crown land road is an Atlantic shore property whose time has come. With global uncertainties emphasizing the importance of self-sufficiency and rural locations, this off grid estate is the perfect haven. There is a fully appointed 2 storey main dwelling plus adjacent double garage with loft guest quarters on 25.97 acres. The cleared area around the buildings is bordered on 3 sides by forest while the forth is open to the Atlantic affording a panoramic view of rugged ocean vistas; nearby sandy beach; and truly magnificent sunsets. Being off the grid is facilitated by a combination of solar; wood; wind; generator; and battery power; but with propane and diesel as back-ups and load carriers. This wilderness property has all the comforts of suburban living with none of its drawbacks. Shopping in Sherbrooke Village (30 min.) and the university town of Antigonish (70 min.). Price is well under replacement value ...Details

NEW PRICE

Cheticamp is known as a charming and industrious village, but also for its beautiful golf course, ocean and mountain views, and the attractive layout of the fishing town. This property captures every aspect of that description, in addition to the spaciousness of the building. The location provides both the views of mountains and sea, but is also close to the truly beautiful Le Portage Golf Course. The house is back from the main street, with sweeping views of the entrance harbor to the west, and the mountains to the east, with the attractive large golf house in between. The breadth of views from either the ground floor verandah, or the wide second floor balcony include the cliffs at the beginning of the National Park, the vivid sunsets and course behind. The substantially built house has three large bedrooms, 2 baths, lot of closet and storage space, and a full basement including a large pool table, air exchanger, security system, storage shed with back-up generator included ...Details

HYANNAS (near W. Lake Ainslie): The Secret Farm

click to enlarge

[click to enlarge]

This secret farm is hard to find but worth the effort to locate. Tucked away in a sparsely populated portion of Inverness County in the West Lake Ainslie area, its location and layout offer absolute privacy. A gate guards the unobtrusive entrance to the property from a gravel road lined with mostly undeveloped land for miles in both directions. A winding 600 meter gravel drive leaves the rise at the road and progresses down a slope, around an "S" curve, over a brook, up another slope, past the spring house and the barn and finally approaches a refurbished Cape Breton century farm house set up on a rise that overlooks a series of hills and valleys.

From this vantage point (and every other vantage point on the property) there is but one sign of civilization visible beyond its boundaries - in any direction - as far as the eye can see, two distant grain towers.

About forty acres of hay fields, various older outbuildings, a small apple orchard, an organic garden and a large wild hedge of raspberries are visible from the residence. The meadows stretch outward in all directions ending where mostly mixed forest begins, the exception being some areas above up slope from the house where older meadows have begun to fill in with hardwood bush. A gentle stream transects the property and a spring is located not far from the house ...Details

Exclusive Listing: Extraordinary Getaway

click to enlarge

[click to enlarge]

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
