[click to enlarge]

Wash your cares away on the Bras D'Or Lakes and get to the real business at hand; enjoying a perfect waterfront four season energy efficient home. Minutes away from world class golf, winter skiing and a full six month boating season. This recently built home is sited next to the shore on 3.4 acres of land (additional land available) and features total main level living. Three large bedrooms with a master ensuite and walk-in closet. Cathedral ceilings in the living areas, four skylights as well, set the mood for bright days and the wood-burning fireplace for quiet nights. In-floor heat, granite counter tops, four stainless steel appliances, crown mouldings.

The outside is landscaped around the house, along with a 2 car garage which is fully insulated and in-floor heat. The balance of the acreage is left in a very natural setting, encouraging local wildlife to make their seasonal visits.

Water views from your deck just above the lake offer summer fun and relaxation and the property entrance is framed by a beautiful mountain vista. The Lakes Golf Club is ready for you with 18 holes, the Ben Eoin Marina has boat berths and a clubhouse, not to mention the Ben Eoin Ski Hill for winter time recreation.

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

MIDDLE CAPE: Very Desirable Bras d'Or Waterfront Property

[click to enlarge]

This property should satisfy the most distinguishing taste. The compact and yet comfortably private, well cared for house and grounds is just right. Built in 1995, both in newly stained exterior and knotty pine interior are pristine. The 245 foot waterfront provides views that include the broadest expense of the Bras d'Or and sea breezes that cool in the summer with a moving collage of clouds and weather. The house with its 4 bedrooms, partially cathedral ceiling and large fireplace, has a beautifully finished wood staircase separating the modern spacious kitchen. The garage has a planned space for a one bedroom apartment with heated flooring, kitchen, bathroom and living room. Both buildings have new roofs, double glazed windows, new outside doors, and water from a new hot water system and pressure tank. High speed internet is hard wired, while all power cables are buried. A heat pump and oil/wood furnace control the interior temperature. Comfort, privacy and waterfront beauty ...Details
