(click to enlarge)



Located among the charming properties in Grand Etang, this lovely home belongs perfectly, and like most Acadian homes, the gardens and landscaped grounds are meticulously cared for. The kitchen layout permits an open atmosphere next to the large living room and adjoining piano room. The master bedroom is located on the main floor with its attractive ensuite bath having a comfortably sized Jacuzzi tub. The decking in front of the house provides a very pleasant, stunning, and relaxing area, while the barbecue on the rear deck, partially shaded by a gorgeous apple tree (which makes delightful applesauce) is easily accessed from the kitchen. The original building was constructed in the early 1900s and the present owners raised the building in 1972 to install a concrete floor and basement with 6 foot ceilings. A gasoline fuelled generator is wired into the house electrical system, but requires switching once the power is lost. A new roof on the main part of house in front was just completed, the rear in 2004. Water is supplied from a common source in the rear hills, gravity fed for $125/year. The paved driveway has a large parking area, and there is a detached garage with storage space. Shopping and services are only 15 minutes away in Cheticamp ...Details

Listing Withdrawn from Market

A delightful unusual octagonal home post & beam, board & baton with massive stone column in the center which also houses the flu from the fireplace. The stone and concrete radiate heat during the winter fires, and cool in the summer. Unexpected but charming configurations...

There are moments - like this one - when I genuinely appreciate the opportunity of presenting a property in Cape Breton. This 5 acre parcel has virtually everything Cape Breton is noted for: an ocean front that is an easy walk with a gradual and short pitch to the sandy beach front; usually delightful cool sea breezes, which also minimize the bugs; a very satisfying ocean panorama, with fishing boats in season; a lovely ridge vista inland; and the house! And what a house! Although built 25 years ago, the first step snide leaves one wondering whether the dates are wrong. The place is simply charmingly comfortable and genuinely lovely. The more than 2700 square feet include 4 bedrooms, exquisite hardwood flooring, a chef's delight of a kitchen, dreamy peacefulness throughout in an extremely solidly built home. The sunken family room has a fireplace, a door to the wide deck overlooking the sea, and 2 steps to the kitchen and out the south side to the turn around. There is both an accessible interior 2 car garage which is heated, and has a door to the side entrance. There are ample - in fact- generous storage spaces throughout the house with walk-in his and her closets in the master, special spaces under the eaves and more. The basement is partially finished as an exercise room, and has a 55 by 11 foot space for winter wood. The furnace is both wood and oil using wood mainly but being able to run an oil with a thermostat when traveling or just away. The kitchen appliances are all quality, as is everything in the place. Whether walking the beach, relaxing on the deck, or sunning on the master bedroom's balcony, this property presents the best of Cape Breton ...Details
