HOWIE CENTRE: Unusually Attractive Farm Property

click to enlarge

[click to enlarge]

An unusual and very attractive property with significant opportunities. There is an immediate cash flow of at least $40,000 / year; a raised, completely refurbished 2 bedroom house, 24,000 sq. ft. of clear, clean and dry barns in excellent shape: concrete floors, a large (28 x 40) two truck door heated garage, and about 20 acres of long term well kept fields. There is a very large amount of additional acreage available (450 acres). There are fully sold development roads on both sides of this land. Once a profitable dairy farm, with a large herd, the cows are gone providing the opportunity for extensive vehicle storage (the $40k already uses part of the barns), beginning a beef cattle feeder farm, chickens, or a wide variety of profitable food-based enterprises beckons the imaginative entrepreneur. The price of beef, the increasing demand for organic food sources, the proximity to Sydney River, suggests various ventures that would profitably throw off an attractive return, the site in Howie Centre is central, only about five minutes to Sydney River and shopping. Canada only produces about 26% of its own food products, the land and barns could produce food crops, or central warehousing with additional small cottages are all in excellent condition. This land has been in the family since the late 1700s. Higher end condo and / or exclusive home sites make another serious prospect. The layout and flexible potential of the large contiguous acreage needs to be seen to properly grasp its potential. Heavy equipment possibilities....Details

NEW PRICE

Peace in these unstable times is a sought after valuable but elusive commodity. This exquisite parcel of nine and a half acres and 420 feet of waterfront provides both peace and beauty. The carefully landscaped hillside gently rises to where there is a shed and concrete pad for a small cottage or barn. Water, septic and power is there. The view includes much of salt water Goulet Lake that opens to the ocean and is almost a private body of water. Crown land boarders the forest eastern boundary, while an undeveloped several acres are to the west. At the base of the peninsula is a leveled location originally established for a home. Tucked away on the water side of a hill. the protected location would provide a permanent totally private hide-away. Mooring a boat just yards away, one would be governed by the tides using the access to the ocean, depending on the boat's draft. This uniquely configured parcel is located just across the harbour from the southern entrance to the Bra d'Or Lakes ...Details

The Magic of MARGAREE HARBOUR

[click to enlarge]

This stately home has been the envy of many yachtsman for over 100 years. 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. They hired skilled Nova Scotia artisans who built their Victorian beauty to last and so it has. 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. This property also has an unusual feature found rarely in the area - water rights including the right to build a private dock. Even better, it's deep water moorage. The combination of picturesque Baddeck Village, and the majestic Bras d'Or is the requisite setting for this distinctive home. A haven in a chaotic world ...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
