CAP LE MOINE: A Beautiful Bargain

[click to enlarge]

 

SOLD

Tucked away from traffic and tourists, this delightful corner of peace and beauty is a rare opportunity. The price per square foot of living space is average for this area, but nothing else is. Those square feet are completely (and very tastefully) furnished from decorative dishes in the kitchen to bed linens for the 3 bedrooms, this place is truly move-in ready. There's a large TV, an oil fired stove, two refrigerator/freezers, washer, dryer, new microwave and comfortable furniture throughout the semi-open concept rooms.

The well maintained bungalow has three decks, new windows and doors, a double shingle roof, new paint and more. There are two drives which meet at the heated, wired double garage and there are two additional outbuildings, all conveniently grouped well back from the road on the 1.1 acre property. From any viewpoint, one can't help but appreciate the landscaped yard with its large variety of fruit trees, small trout pond and hardwoods that look spectacular in autumn. The mountain and forest views are gorgeous and the outdoor soundtrack features a bubbling brook and bird song.

This is simply a rare and valuable find - an extraordinary opportunity for a vacation or year round home just minutes away from the Cabot Trail and about 20 minutes from Cheticamp. The proximity of the very beautiful National Park, sandy beaches and village services (including the best Co-Op grocery and hardware store) means a comfortable life on all fronts. Walking trails, local mountain views, golf, fishing and abundant wild life enchance this peaceful and relaxing locale.

SOLD

A 4 bedroom home divided between the front and 2nd floor part and the rear kitchen and bed/sitting apartments. The owner spent $30,000 to re-roof, new windows, new furnace, and new doors to create a very attractive and well-maintained building. There is considerable space in the rear of this lot, which might support an extension of the house. The front covered porch overlooks the harbour and the Co-op, and Cheticamp Island. Built in 1940, the house has been looked after and is comfortable.

ST. ANN'S BAY: Elegant Milled Log Home

(click to enlarge)

SOLD

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.

EAST SKYE GLEN: A Country Invitation

SOLD

Reminiscent of bygone days, this extensively renovated century home, set into a hill with a backdrop of mature trees, invites entry from the moment you set eyes on it. The back deck is a few steps from the ample kitchen with island and eat-in area. The dining room is next with full bath adjacent. The large living room looks out over Eastern Skye Glen with a view of valley and hills that is lovely. Raised vegetable garden beds surround the house and should continue to be useful for years as will the large apple tree on the edge of the paved, circular drive next to the house. The garage, like the home, has a wood stove, plus space for a work bench or storage. There is a nearby spring and a small brook bubbles out of the woods to add a pleasant sound. The distance to Whycocomagh is no more than ten minutes, Mabou about twice that. This is a very reasonably priced 4-bedroom house and five acres.
