A huge moose head surveys the room which includes the dining area and overlooks the lake just below through large picture windows.

(click to enlarge)

SOLD

The home is built to the highest standards and is what the glossy real estate magazines like to use to delight and impress their readers in the best of locations. With 1,000 feet of waterfront situated on St. Ann's Bay, the views through the lovely growth of maples will never cease to captivate, having been expertly landscaped for all seasons. Being almost 40 acres, the house becomes the standard bearer for comfort, charm and peace. The cathedraled great room, with fireplace centered for winter evenings, serves all year for congenial meetings and is reminiscent of classic European chateaus. The dining room continues that mode, nicely located between the gourmet kitchen and the great room, providing just the right social atmosphere. The views from all of the bedrooms complete the image and emphasize privacy with pleasing taste. There is a recently rebuilt wide full length verandah facing the bay designed to capture the sun as well as glimpses of the bay. An old orchard lies across the road on 35 acres which could be used for a wide range of activities including animals, vegetable gardening, a source of firewood, forest trails or development. The waterfront could support a wharf, or even a cantilevered deck, out over the rocky beach as a starting point for walks along the waters' edge or to enjoy the cool sea breezes. This is an unusual offering located in one of Cape Breton's most beautiful areas - St. Ann's Bay. Situated as it is, this property is an ideal place to enjoy living year round and can accommodate large or extended families with room for guests providing a quiet rural lifestyle a comfortable distance from urban intrusions.

BIRCH PLAIN: Cabot Trail Treasure

NEW PRICE

Situated between the Cabot Trail and the Atlantic, this listing meets the brief of what most people want in a Cape Breton property. The 5 acre lot is almost square with 440 feet of ocean front. The home site was perfectly selected to ensure privacy and maximize the stunning, elevated view of the ocean. The subtle driveway entrance off the Trail winds through the woods well away from the road to the cleared area around the house with just a hint of the blue green vista that lies beyond. The wrap around deck will lead you there, sun, sea breeze and sounds of surf giving way to an expansive ocean view framed by towering evergreens. The prow front of the house takes full advantage with two storeys of picture windows. A loft master suite and sitting room overlook the vaulted great room with the large fireplace and light pine interior playing second fiddle to the ocean panorama visible from both floors. The main floor is semi open plan and the full, partially finished walk-out basement is over 1460 sq. ft. in three separate rooms. The dwelling is very well constructed with many extra features including green sand water filtration, a certified no maintenance septic system, sky lights, alarm system and red oak flooring. This property inspires a genuine enthusiasm and delight in the composition of the land, building, and natural beauty. If it meets your brief, I highly recommend putting it at the top of your list. Saving the best for last will only waste time ...Details

CREIGNISH: 9 Surveyed Acres - Ocean Bay Lot

This land is all about living on the ocean. 180 degrees of blue sea, salt air and the sound of waves hitting the shore, the last thing you hear at night and the first thing in the morning. Nine acres provides privacy on both sides of a large level area suitable for building. While distinctly a rural setting along the Cape Breton Western sunset coast, the location is just 15 minutes from major shopping and all the necessary amenities. The drive is easy, too, over a paved coastal highway that is well maintained year round. A short drive in the other direction gets you to the beautiful sandy provincial park beach in Port Hood, then the Cabot Links Golf Course and a bit further along to the Margaree River, well known for salmon fishing. The area is also the heart of Celtic Music on the island. This is an elevated site with land well above St. George's Bay, so you can safely watch storms and large rollers come directly at you without any concern for flooding or erosion that would impact a dwelling. A pretty spot, good location, land is surveyed and the price is reasonable. There's a for sale sign at the road on the property so you will know where to go to appreciate the view ...Details
