ST. ANN'S BAY: Elegant Milled Log Home

click to enlarge
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 ...Details

BIRCH PLAIN: Cabot Trail Treasure

click to enlarge

(click to enlarge)

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

SOUTH HARBOUR (DINGWALL): Curve Appeal

(click to enlarge)

Round houses come with many benefits but this one is in a class by itself.  "Fine Homebuilding Magazine" thought so when they featured it in their monthly issue.  This striking home is the shape of choice for strength, energy efficiency, good ventilation and air circulation and is less vulnerable in strong winds. “Circular living provides a balance of looking inward and outward: looking out at the natural environment and surroundings but then coming in again to the self and the hearth.” (David Raitt, noted builder). Looking outward provides a variety of vistas on this 7.3 acre (5 cleared) property - rolling wooded grounds, tended fields, fenced vegetable gardens, northern mountain chain, ocean bay and visiting moose. Looking inward is equally pleasing - 3 levels, 3 bedrooms, 3 wood stoves, open plan kitchen/dining/living, screened porch, decks and 2 spectacular bespoke staircases.  The home is both spacious and cozy with interesting architectural features. The part of the house you don't see, inside the walls, the roof and foundation, was built to a very high standard. Detailed specs available. Custom furnishings stay with the house as do all contents including tools in the workshop and canoe on the dock. The attractive garage/workshop with upper level, north-light studio is perfect for the artist or wood worker. This turnkey property is very privately situated in an area renowned for its natural beauty - Aspy Bay (one of Cape Breton's finest sand beaches) and the Highlands National Park ...Details

BADDECK BAY: Once in a Blue Moon

click to enlarge

(click to enlarge)

Baddeck Bay is a premier location for homes in this very popular area, and has been for decades. In fact properties coming on the market here are relatively rare, and generally quickly sought after. This home is located right on the water looking across toward Beinn Bhreagh, with multiple decks providing sun or shade as desired. The original building was photoed from the air before the addition of a garage and carpentry workshop, that picture appearing as our lead image. The house has been meticulously looked after, with paint and varnish up to date, and the roof and windows in good shape. Road noise is negligible, yet the village of Baddeck is only a few minutes away. There is room on the property for a garden, and based on a neighbours permission from the DNR, it is likely that construction of a wharf would be possible. The neighbourhood is quiet, private and beautiful. As properties on the water here become available so rarely, interested prospective buyers should respond without delay....Details

CREIGNISH: 9 Surveyed Acres - Ocean Bay Lot

(click to enlarge)

 

 

 

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
