CATALONE: Lake Point Perfection

click to enlarge

[click to enlarge]

This is very special land. Unusually large at 35 acres, it has over 5000 feet of waterfront - most of it lovely. More than a generation of forest management techniques have produced a beautiful forest of mainly large and stately hardwoods, including maples and birches. An old and very serviceable rail roadbed (no rails or ties) stretches along the long border. The land is almost all dry and rises from the lakefront to an accessible central ridge with lovely views of the coves and lake. 20 minutes from Sydney, 10 minutes from the new Nick Faldo golf courses, it is well located. The lake is 5 miles long, and empties into the ocean by way of a channel which brings tide water into the lake on rising tides. Nearby is an entrance to the extensive, protected Mira River waterway.

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
