[click to enlarge]

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. Trout in the lake, wildlife in the woods, surrounding the delightful home and gardens, leaves little to ask for, even less to be concerned about, and that is an important goal today ...Details

Whatever Cape Breton is known to provide - beauty, peace, privacy - is met in this arrestingly lovely property. Perfectly situated high above the waves overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence, this home simply demands admiration. The long driveway guarantees privacy and eliminates road noise - the sound of the waves below and the sea breezes provide a counterpoint for the views and setting. The landscaping is picture book perfection as is the cedar sided home. Living is all on one level, the expanse of decking and glass bringing the outside in. Once into the open plan living room, the striking stone column of the fireplace and chimney dominate the knotty pine walls and ceiling. There is a new heat pump, just installed. Kitchen appliances, furniture and conveniences are all top of the line. Electric power leads are buried and the oriental-style stone paving wraps the over-all scene into a superlative whole.....Details

ORANGEDALE: 194 Acre Bras d'Or Lake Farm

click to enlarge

[click to enlarge]

A very lovely example of old-style Cape Breton cattle farm, with mainly level fields that still yield attractive grasses even after 15 years since active farming concluded. The bottom of the land below the road is waterfront in the Bras d'Or, while up the gradual slope above the road is a self-feeding spring-fed pond before the track dives into the thick woods. A couple of hundred yards in is a turnaround with the track continuing towards the back of the property and into older growth hard wood forest. The land extends from the lake front almost one and a half miles back into the deep woods and is 1300 feet wide - a dramatically large property. While narrower at the lake front, the land is level, and the water easily accessible. The house entry is typically into the kitchen area, with plenty of room for table and chairs, thence the dining room and sitting room, and the one ground-floor bedroom. Five more bedrooms on the second floor look towards the metal sheathed red barn ...Details

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.

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

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
