Overview:

A compact and typical Cheticamp building located on the town's waterfront that has been lovingly cared for and presents well. For years a small hairdressing salon, the ground floor is still arranged attractively as a salon, while the second floor has a very comfortable and pleasant bachelor apartment. The commercial aspect of the building strongly suggest a continuation of the salon, but there are a number of possibilities for alternative use. The ground floor could be converted to being a small art gallery or studio, maintaining the present upstairs as living area, or even a woodworking shop, with owner's quarters above. The building is in good shape, the full bathroom being on the ground floor, with modern fixtures, but with some changes upstairs a second bathroom could be placed above the first. Overlooking the water from the rear, Cheticamp Island is just across the bay, with fishing boats regularly passing to or from the banks. An expansion to the rear is possible.

Comments:

An unusual but interestingly useful bachelor dwelling with commercial history and possibilities. The Water and Electrical are unusual - two reservoirs and one substation for about 30 buildings. Separate from the Village.

HST applicable.

Directions:

Facing Route 19, Cabot Trail, at the northern end of Cheticamp village opposite of Tim Horton's.
