Click for large photo

[click to enlarge]

This is an almost island; an extraordinary geological formation that extends boldly into the Bras d'Or Lakes for a distance of 1.8 miles off South Side Boularderie. Island Point is a wild, remote and uninhabited peninsula only 30 minutes from N. Sydney. The land has the typical Karst topography of eroded hills and valleys, but is resplendent with a hardwood forest that covers the entire length of the Point. Its sheer white gypsum cliffs protect a long harbour while the shore is interspersed with beaches and nearly 40 foot depths almost all the way to the sand bar end. The elbow shaped connection to the Boularderie Island shore leads up a steep pitch covered with large firs to the road’s edge at the top of a ridge. 3.6 miles of shoreline, 252 acres, sand beaches, protected anchorages and wilderness character - this property is very special. With a good pair of walking shoes and stamina, you can see it all. A trail runs from the road through much of the property ...Details

BARRACHOIS: 400+ Acres for the 21st Century Pioneer

[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

ST. ROSE: Secluded Beach Front (Exclusive LIsting)

[click to enlarge]

This is what Cape Breton is all about. Forest, brooks, ocean side, a beach and privacy. Leaving the Shore Road, one is enveloped by a birch and fir forest on a long driveway down the slope towards the Gulf of St. Lawrence. 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 ...
