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

NEW PRICE

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

LONG POINT: Sandy Beach, Well Appointed Home

[click to enlarge]

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
