You don't have to pay for ocean frontage to have an amazing sea view. This acreage on the western coast of Cape Breton enjoys an elevated, panoramic view of St. George's Bay and sunsets of postcard quality. Located on a paved highway, it is an easy 15 minute drive to shopping in Port Hawksbury. Head in the other direction on the highway for sandy beaches, warm water swimming, Celtic music activities and several world class golf courses. A little longer but still an easy drive accesses salmon fishing on the renown Margaree River, followed by the picturesque village of Cheticamp with another golf course and finally the Highlands National Park. It's a great location for seasonal residence and a very convenient spot to live year round. With 112 acres, there are opportunities for building more than one residence and plenty of room for outbuildings, garden, and parking. The back acreage slopes upward toward Cregnish Mountain and is mostly wooded with some hardwood in the mix. The large lot is surveyed and there's a level plateau area between the road and back acreage suitable for building.


This property has spectacular views of the local countryside and ocean, with beautiful ocean sunsets and close access to the warmest salt waters on the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

Area Info:
Port Hood is approximately a 20 minute drive from this location and Port Hawkesbury is about 10 minutes. The latter has all shopping facilities; the former has groceries, restaurants and other amenities but on a reduced scale.

A boat tour from nearby Little Judique Harbour takes visitors to Port Hood Island and offers an excellent opportunity to see whales and bald eagles. At Harbourview, the Chestico Museum highlights the history of the settlement and growth of the Port Hood region. Port Hood, a full-service fishing community, is the county seat of Inverness, the second-largest community on the Ceilidh Trail, and the step-dancing capital of Cape Breton. The village's scenic beauty is enhanced by magnificent views of Port Hood Island just offshore. The island's green meadows, brightly painted houses and high bluffs make it a favourite subject for photographers. There is also privately owned Henry Island in the immediate vicinity visible from the town's shore.

The area around Port Hood is known for delightfully warm waters and fine sandy beaches at Port Hood Provincial Park, Court House Beach, and a number of others on the Colindale Road. Port Hood marks the beginning of the Mabou Highlands, ancient rolling coastal hills that extend inland to Lake Ainslie and north to Inverness, reaching almost 300 m (1000 ft.) in height in places.

The western shore of Cape Breton is exposed to the north and west winds of the Gulf, yet its waters are the warmest. The locations, such as this property, that provide protection from the wind are rare on or near this coastline and afford the opportunity to enjoy sheltered, warm waters and magnificent sunsets.
