LAKE AINSLIE: Large Property with Great Potential on Lake Ainslie

click to enlarge

[click to enlarge]

Many years ago, this unique property was a hunting and fishing lodge. While currently used as a private year round residence, the 560 acre, multiple dwelling estate on the shores of the Maritimes' largest fresh water lake, is still suitable for commercial purposes in the tourism sector. Given its proximity to the extremely popular Inverness links courses and its size, one can visualize a hills course in this location with club house, manager's residence, guest accommodations and lakeside amenities already in place. The main residence, formerly the lodge, has over 5000 sq. ft. of spacious rooms including a great room with a giant fireplace and large outdoor deck overlooking the lake and hills beyond. The second residence is over 2000 sq. ft. , also at the shore. Both homes have sizable attached garages with storage space. There's a one bed guest cottage and a number of outbuildings as well. All the structures are on a 4-acre lot with an undeveloped additional four acres adjacent to it, totaling 1341 feet of lake frontage. The property offers 9 bedrooms total (5 are ensuites), and almost 8000 sq. ft. of living area - very reasonably priced at $100 per sq. ft. (Substantial list of upgrades and improvements available). The 552 additional acres are a valuable woodlot, rise above and overlook Lake Ainslie and offer numerous opportunities and come at no additional cost. This is a beautiful property with a very desirable location and a listing price that represents excellent value ...Details

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....Details

BARRACHOIS: 400+ Acres for the 21st Century Pioneer

click to enlarge

[click to enlarge]

This very large property was assembled from a number of smaller parcels that now total a contiguous 400+ acres. It has a woodland lake, extensive forest and trails, expansive elevated views of and access frontage on the Bras d'Or Lake. The location affords absolute privacy yet is just 20 minutes from Sydney. Quiet enjoyment of these attractive features would be enough for most of us but the engineer owner had specific expectations from this land. He prepared basic plans for a hydro-electric generating facility, using release of water from the property's 5 acre lake. He calculated the sustainable cordage available for building and energy resources, including a small biomass gasifaction plant for the generation of additional electric power.. A number of cleared tracks have been prepped for future vehicle drives and possible building sites have been identified. The plans and designs may be included in the offering. ...Details

The house suddenly appears below with ocean opening up in wide low lying bay, defined by fir forest on either side, Margaree Island lies about 3 miles offshore. The house provides ...
